Barcelona - Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton hailed history in the making in Spain on Sunday as his Mercedes team celebrated the best-ever start to a season with a fifth one-two finish in as many races.
The 34-year-old Briton's 76th career triumph left him 15 short of seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher's all-time record of 91.
Hamilton, second on the grid, seized the lead from polesitting team mate Valtteri Bottas at the start and went unchallenged to the chequered flag.
The five-times champion described Mercedes as the strongest team ever and said there was more to come.
"I'm enjoying continuous growing with this team and, I mean, it's incredible what we're achieving together, what we have achieved in these six years, seven years or whatever it is," he told reporters. "I plan on working with this team to help it become the most successful team of all-time. That's my current goal and my sole focus."
