Hamilton wins Spanish GP ahead of Vettel

MONTMELO, Spain (AP) Lewis Hamilton beat Sebastian Vettel to win the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday, tightening Formula One's intense title fight.

Vettel edged past the pole-sitting Hamilton at the first corner, but the British driver overtook Vettel's Ferrari with more than 20 laps left while running on a faster set of tires as Mercedes' pit strategy paid off.

Hamilton's second win in five races this season cut Vettel's lead from 13 points to six before the Monaco GP.
