Hamilton passed Vettel for the lead with four laps to go, with the German driver then forced to defend from Jenson Button in the other McLaren and his Red Bull team mate Mark Webber."

In Turkey and Spain, Pirelli will nominate the hard and soft tyres (as prime and option respectively). In Monaco the soft tyre will be the prime and the supersoft tyre, denoted by red markings, will make its debut as the option tyre.
