All you need to know about the F1 Spanish Grand Prix

Four races down, 17 to go

With four races down, and 17 to go F1 is back this weekend – and it’s taking place in rural Catalonia, Spain. The venue itself, Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, is arguably one of the best on the calendar, as it is well connected to the city centre and the grandstands, and the surrounding hills and grass areas provide various excellent views of the track.

Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas are steaming ahead in the World Drivers’ Championship points table, with the latter driver leading by a point. Mercedes now command a 74-point lead over Ferrari and a 109-point lead over Red Bull.

The Spanish Grand Prix brings with it the opportunity for other teams to surpass Mercedes, as in Barcelona there is always the chance for surprise. Furthermore, Barcelona traditionally marks the race where the first major upgrade of the season for each team is introduced, as they look to improve their cars, so we are expecting some changes.

With Ferrari securing just two podiums so far this season, the Italian team could really do with a win at the Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya.

The track features a number of high-speed corners, with a change of direction from Turn 1 to Turn 2, after which is a long, flat-out Turn 3, and a challenging Turn 9. While the cars have had to deal with temporary venues in Australia and Baku or long straights in Bahrain and China, the layout in Barcelona provides a further test of a car’s aerodynamics. A high-speed error could be very costly here.

In 2018, Lewis Hamilton secured his second victory on the bounce, as he cemented the foundations of what would become his fifth world championship. This year, Lewis Hamilton is favoured to win and it all begins on Friday, May 10. Find a full list of F1 Spain Grand Prix Odds at Yobetit.com
