MONTMELO, Spain -- Mercedes teammates Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg sped away to their fourth straight one-two finish at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday in a dominant performance that does not bode well for the rest of the Formula One field. Kris Dunn Jersey . Hamilton took off from pole position and stayed ahead of Rosberg -- despite the German closing to less than a second in a tense final lap -- to record a fourth consecutive victory and move ahead of his teammate in the overall standings. Hamiltons 100 points after five races put him three points ahead of Rosberg, who failed to find a way in front of his main rival for a fourth straight time after winning the season opener. His 26th career win gave Hamilton one more than former world champions Niki Lauda, who now works for Mercedes, and Jim Clark. Hamilton set himself on course to add to his own title from 2008. He hadnt led the championship since June 2012 after winning the Canadian GP with McLaren. "This is our fourth one-two, its just unreal," Hamilton said after Rosberg helped douse him in champagne to celebrate his first victory at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit. "Getting my first win here after trying for eight years, it is difficult to put into words my feeling. I have never had a car like this. I have never had a gap like this. I am grateful I was able to keep (Rosberg) behind me." Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo finished third for his first career podium after coming close on three occasions this year. Four-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel had a flawless drive to move up from a 15th-place start to finish fourth, with his Red Bull finally not having any problems following two days of it stalling in practice and qualifying. Valtteri Bottas of Williams was fifth, followed by struggling Ferrari duo Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen in sixth and seventh. Lotus Romain Grosjean and Force India pari Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg rounded out the points. McLaren made no progress with Jenson Button and Kevin Magnussen coming in 11th and 12th. Not even a three-week break for their rivals to improve their cars prevented Mercedes from earning its fifth win in as many events this year in a disheartening display for the other 10 teams. Ricciardo ended up more than 48 seconds slower than Rosberg. Alonso was left in a distant third place in the standings with 49 points, followed by Vettel with 45. Mercedes increased its lead in the constructors championship race to 197 points. Red Bull is second with 84 points, with Ferrari trailing in third with 66. After executing a clean start, the Silver Arrows focused on protecting their tires and preparing a final fight at the end of the race to decide which driver would to settle with being runner-up. The two opted for different pit stop strategies, with Hamilton pitting first to change to a faster pair of medium tries before Rosberg went in to get a second set of slower, but more resistant, hard tires. It appeared Rosbergs tactics to then finish on his set of faster tires was going to pay off as Hamiltons advantage evaporated, but Hamilton kept his nerves in check and his vehicle in front until the 66th and final lap. Hamilton led all of the way, but he asked his team for help on several occasions -- as well as complaining about the tire strategy -- after never being able to shake Rosberg. And although this race didnt see any close calls between the drivers, as happened in Bahrain earlier this season, they were close right down to the last turn as Hamilton crossed 0.6 seconds ahead of Rosberg. "I think if I had had one more lap I could have given it a go," Rosberg said. "I could have gone for a kamikaze move, but that wouldnt have made sense. I will try to get that little extra bit and edge him out next time." Only two cars didnt finish, Caterhams Kamui Kobayashi and Jean-Eric Vergne of Toro Rosso. Vergne retired during the 26th lap due to an exhaust problem. That brought an end to an error-plagued weekend for Vergne, who was penalized 10 places when his wheel flew off in Fridays practice. Earlier on Sunday, the vintage car that was supposed to ferry him through the pre-race drivers parade puttered to a stop, forcing Vergne to hitch a ride with Marussias Max Chilton and his chauffeur.

Coach Ron Rivera said he will make a game-time decision on Newtons availability after the fourth-year quarterback was limited in practice Thursday while recovering from fractured ribs. Newton said hes "on pace" to play and Rivera agreed. However, neither Newton nor Rivera sounded as optimistic about Newtons chances of playing as they did earlier in the week. "We dont want to put a guy out there who cant protect himself or take a hit," Rivera said. "We want to be smart about it." Rivera also emphasized the Panthers dont want to risk further injury to Newton. "Its not just about game one," Rivera said. "Lets be realistic. (The season) is not a sprint, this is a marathon. You may not start as fast as you want, but at the same time you have to start smart." Newton addressed the media during a press conference Thursday after practice and talked up backup quarterback Derek Anderson and his teammates. He also talked for the first time about the possibility of sitting out. "I dont want to ever put this team or myself in jeopardy that Im just stressing to hurry up and get out there and Im not able to be what makes me me,&qquot; Newton said. Jordan Hill Jersey. Newton has never missed a game during his football career -- at any level -- due to injury. "Were not going to make a story out of that, because I am human," Newton said. "We all understand our limits, we all know what we can and cant do. Like I told coach, and I want to confirm it to everybody, I will not put this team at risk to hurt it by anything." Rivera said Newton did what was asked of him at practice on Thursday, but refused to say if the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback actually threw any passes. Newton fractured his ribs Aug. 22 in a preseason game against New England. Anderson, who has started 43 games during his NFL career, would start if Newton cant play. Newton has also struggled with an ankle injury this off-season, undergoing surgery in March. He said entering the season injured has been "frustrating" and compared his body to an old car. "You fix the AC (air conditioning) and now the carburetor is out," Newton said. "Then you fix the carburetor, youve got a flat tire. You fix the tire, now your windshield wipers dont work. "Its frustrating, because you know its a good car. This car has got you to this point. Now its like everything is happening. The thing is, you keep messing the car up, and youre not even driving it."
