Nico Rosberg hailed a perfect weekend after securing his first win of the season at the Spanish Grand Prix.

Starting from pole, Rosberg produced a commanding performance to come home 17 seconds ahead of his Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

The German’s win cuts Hamilton’s advantage at the head of the drivers’ standings to 20 points.

“We had a perfect weekend here in Spain,” Rosberg said. “We have a fantastic car and everybody did a really great job in the break, so thanks to the team for everything.

“My start was great for the first time this season. From there I was able to control the pace and I never felt in danger throughout the whole race.

“I’m so happy about this win. It’s still early days in the season so it’s good to close the points gap to Lewis.

“I will continue to push hard – starting with a home race for me in Monaco!”
