Lewis Hamilton's second consecutive victory could not have been more different to his first of 2018. While his latest triumph in the Spanish Grand Prix was worth the same 25 points his Azerbaijan win was, the Mercedes driver valued it more highly. And rightly so, for last Sunday he was at his imperious best.
This was vintage Hamilton of the kind we did not see in Bahrain, China or Azerbaijan. The man himself was delighted with being back on form, a very different feeling from the Baku "lottery" win that made him feel sheepish on the podium. And the reason for this return to form? Confidence.
That's not the confidence that the driver brings to the car, but the kind that flows in the other direction. And while it might seem that Hamilton claiming pole position by 0.040 seconds from Valtteri Bottas was the turning point, it wasn't until the race that we saw him in the sweet spot.
