After a relatively sluggish start to 2018, Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport's chief race engineer Andrew Shovlin has said that the team's first 1-2 finish of the season is a "great reward".
Hamilton won from pole, unchallenged by the rest of the grid.
Hamilton, the reigning world champion, will not complain. The supersoft tyre wasn't delivering the grip and peak performance they expected and, in fact, the Ferrari drivers ended up qualifying on the soft tyre even in Q3.
"We are not far from finalising things".
Isola also explained that giving all teams the opportunity to try out the different specifications in the test - something that was planned in advance of the weekend - was so that Pirelli could get a "proper comparison".

However, a slight error at the stop ensured that Bottas rejoined behind the scrapping Vettel and Kevin Magnussen.

If Mercedes' dominance was more like what Formula One fans have gotten used to seeing from the Silver Arrows, then Hamilton's display on Sunday was also right up there with the best the Briton has produced on his way to four world championships.
So, while Sunday's result will be hugely encouraging to Hamilton and Mercedes, it should not be taken as an indication that the team will dominate from here on in. Shovlin resumed to say that the Barcelona track suited Mercedes' package and suggested that the conditions "flattered" the W09's performance.
We've seen the wings get bigger, smaller, wider, higher, lower and a combination of all of these, but the feeling coming out of the F1 technical camp is that this time the changes proposed have been better researched than anytime before.
"However, the continued efforts of everyone in Brackley and Brixworth have played no small part in today's success".
Spanish Grand Prix victor Lewis Hamilton believes that F1 tire supplier, Pirelli, should bring more "racier" tires to each weekend.
It is a race where the pole-sitter often wins - it has happened on 20 of the previous 27 occasions - and, fresh from his victory in Azerbaijan, the Mercedes driver will be confident of maximum points again. "But I have the will to want to get this one and do it right, ideal weekend in, weekend out".
