After locking out the front row of the grid during qualifying yesterday, Mercedes will be chasing its fifth straight win at today’s Spanish Grand Prix with Lewis Hamilton leading the charge from pole position.

Hamilton himself is looking to win his fourth straight race in Spain, and it would be his first victory at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya if he can indeed pull it off. However, with teammate Nico Rosberg waiting in the wings, he will have a fight on his hands to seize the lead of the drivers’ championship from the German.
Daniel Ricciardo will lead Red Bull’s efforts from third place. Sebastian Vettel was slapped with a five place grid penalty following a gearbox change due to a failure in Q3, and will start down in 15th. Valtteri Bottas and Romain Grosjean were the surprise packages of qualifying, and will start fourth and fifth respectively.
The Spanish Grand Prix is certainly hotting up to be a close one, so make sure that you tune in from 7:30am ET on NBCSN and Live Extra. CLICK HERE for live stream.
