Montmeló es una pista muy interesante, con una gran variedad de curvas, con buenas instalaciones y muy buenas comunicaciones, lo que la convierte en muy accesible para la mayoría de escuderías. Es básicamente por esto, por lo que Montmeló se ha convertido en la principal pista de test de todos los equipos con sede en Europa.

Respecto a la la seguridad del circuito, tiene unas vías de fuga que cualquier otro circuito envidiaría, teniendo como excepción sólo los nuevos trazados del mundial, y la anchura de la pista es simplemente ejemplar.

A nivel puramente técnico o de pilotaje, hay que señalar que la puesta a punto es crucial. Un reglaje del coche con un mínimo apoyo, hace el coche más rápido al final de la recta larga y puede llegar primero a la primera curva, pero en el mixto y en la Elf, padecerá de fata de agarre y perderá mucho tiempo. Igualmente, un coche con mucho apoyo aerodinámico, negociará las secciones del mixto fácilmente, pero esto servirá de muy poco si el resto te pasa en la recta.

La superficie de la pista, aunque lisa y regular, se reconoce como muy abrasiva, aunque este año haya sido reasfaltada con un compuesto más suave, y por consiguiente, el uso premauto del neumático, ciertamente causará doñores de cabeza a algún piloto.

Muchas gracias, McH. Parecía que este año no íbamos a ver una carrera en España pero al fin ha llegado.

Veremos qué tal le sienta a los coches rodar en Montmeló en pleno mes de agosto, aunque parece que van a tener algo de suerte y las temperaturas van a bajar algo.

Y a ver si Red se nos manifiesta con alguna fotillo. :sisi1:

Algunas "previas" de los equipos:

Spanish GP: Preview - RenaultDaniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) had mixed results at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), but his impressive pace in qualifying at the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix gives the Australian a good feeling heading to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) where he has scored two podiums in the past.



What are your thoughts on the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya?

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): It's probably the most familiar circuit for all of us with all the pre-season and in-season testing we do there. I think it's going to be interesting going there now, this late in the year, when it's going to be a lot warmer than in February or even May when we usually race. We had a decent winter test there earlier in the year, but the car has changed a bit since then, so I'm looking forward to trying that out. It's not usually the most exciting of races for overtakes as it's a high-speed circuit and quite hard to follow the car in front. I think if we can qualify well, there's no reason we can't have a strong result.


What do you take away from the Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) double-header?

DR: To take 24 points as a team from the two races is certainly very good; not only from a performance perspective but also for the Constructors' Championship. We definitely missed out a bit on Sunday, though, after a decent qualifying. For some reason, we just couldn't make the two-stop work, especially on the Medium tyre on the second stint. We'll investigate what we can do to improve that next time, so it was a bit disappointing not to score any points. But we've definitely found an improvement in performance and that's really pleasing. We'll aim to put it all together this weekend in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), and it's exciting to have a change of scenery!


Esteban has good reason to be in a joyous mood following a strong race at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) last weekend that saw the Frenchman climb six places from his grid position. The Circuit de Catalunya is another one of his favourite tracks, and he'll be looking to replicate his past form here where he scored his best result in Formula 1 with P5 back in 2017.


What do you like about racing in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is a bit like the home for Formula 1 - in a way - with all the testing we do there in the winter. It's a track where I had my best result in Formula 1: fifth place in 2017. I've always had success there and had really good feelings going there as it's one of my favourite tracks. I'm looking forward to it and aiming for a solid result.


What are the main challenges of a lap there?

EO: In general, it's a big challenge for the cars and the drivers. Sector 1 and 2 are fast and tricky with the tyres generating a lot of heat through the quick corners like Turns 3 and 9. You arrive into the final sector just trying to get the car home as the rears tend to get hot and you lose a bit of grip. It's a technical challenge, but it's one I enjoy. Looking at how we performed in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), the car should be strong there too, especially in the low-speed Sector 3. Everyone is working hard during these three consecutive races, so we must keep the motivation for this one as well and target some good points.


How do you assess the second Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) race?

EO: I was really happy after the race on Sunday. We did the best we could to climb six places and into the points. The team did a great job on the strategy call and then executing it with a lot of communicating with when I had to push or hold back. It worked well, the pit-stop was awesome and then it was about keeping focused to manage the tyres and make sure we reached the chequered flag. We know we have to qualify higher up the order. We'll keep working on that area and hopefully it will pay off over the next couple of races.


The 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) provided the team with another set of points in what is proving to be a very tight battle in the Constructors' Championship in 2020. We now head to a track synonymous for pre-season winter testing, but with much hotter conditions expected over the weekend. Chief Race Engineer Ciaron Pilbeam looks ahead to this weekend's race in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona).


What are the main challenges of Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)?

Ciaron Pilbeam: Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is very much split into two sections. The first two sectors are mostly high-speed corners and then the end of the lap is generally much slower and very tough on the rear tyres as there are so many corners close together. One thing that is different for this race is the time of year. Normally we test in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) in the winter in February and then race in May when it's warmer. We're now racing in August and it could be very hot. There might be less grip when it gets hot, but it won't change the fundamentals of the track.


We've done thousands of laps there over the years. Drivers and engineers alike know the circuit inside out. It was resurfaced a couple of years ago so it's a lot smoother than it used to be. We're not expecting any big surprises, just the usual tuning of set-up and learning the tyres.


How do you evaluate last weekend's race?

CP: It was bittersweet. Esteban was happy with his car in the race, certainly much happier than he was in qualifying. His pace was good and that allowed him to do the one-stop, which worked well for him. Daniel started the race very well, was in a good position, but his rear tyres blistered in his second stint and we need to understand why it happened. It put him in a difficult position in the race and that, ultimately, was the reason he didn't have a better result.


Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), in a way, is similar to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) with some high-speed corners, but it does have that slow final sector. They key difference is returning to a higher downforce level, similar to the first few races. Tyre behaviour might be a little bit different and we have the C1, C2 and C3 compounds, which are the hardest three. They should be straightforward; the Soft will be the qualifying tyre and it's likely to be back to a conventional one-stop race.

Spanish GP: Preview - McLarenCarlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "I can't wait to be racing at my home grand prix this weekend! However, it's disappointing not to have all the fans at the track and in my grandstand showing their support, but it's the right thing to do and it's important everyone can stay safe and watch at home. I'll be running a very special helmet this weekend as well, so watch out for it.



"It's been a very frustrating start to the season for me, but we keep pushing together as a team to maximise our performance. The competition around us is fierce and looks like it's taken a step forward, that's why losing those many points in the previous races hurts, but we're focused on ourselves as we head to Spain and know that we must keep pushing. A new race is a new opportunity. I'm determined to hit the ground running and get a good result on home soil!"


Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "We had a difficult race last weekend, but I'm ready to get back in the car and go again in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). Spain is a track that has a bit of everything with a mix of low and high-speed corners. I'm expecting it to be a challenging race especially given the August heat. As a team we need to stay focused and take everything we've learned so far to produce the best performance on track this weekend.


"It feels like a long time ago since we were in Spain for pre-season testing. Finally, being able to race in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) will give us a good idea of how the car's developed since February and what areas we still need to improve."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "Having spent two weekends at Lando's and the team's home circuit, we now head to Spain for Carlos' home grand prix. Normally we'd expect to see thousands of passionate McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) and Carlos fans in the grandstands cheering us on, and we'll miss their support, but holding the race behind closed doors is absolutely the right thing to ensure the safety of all our fans.


"All the teams know the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) circuit well, given the two weeks of pre-season testing we completed here in February, but racing in August, with elevated ambient and track temperatures, will bring a new challenge. We've already seen at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) what warmer temperatures can do to the tyres, so managing them well will be crucial over the weekend. With this in mind, it should be an exciting race for everyone watching back at home."

Spanish GP: Preview - Ferrari

The second triple-header of this frenetic Formula 1 season comes to an end with this Sunday's 50th Spanish Grand Prix. The race takes place at the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya Circuit, one of the tracks best known to the drivers who generally rack up a huge mileage here in testing.


The track boasts a mix of high, medium and low speed corners, with several direction changes, some climbs and drops and a long main start-finish straight and thus provides a real test of a car's abilities. The final part used to be high speed, but now features a slow chicane leading onto the straight.


Of the permanent tracks, this is one of the hardest when it comes to overtaking. With the sea and mountains nearby, changing wind direction can be tricky to contend with as it upsets car balance considerably. This year, the race is being held in the height of summer, rather than usual spring date, so air and track temperatures will be much higher. Pirelli is supplying the same three tyre compounds as those used at the first Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) race.


From a technical point of view, for Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) the Spanish Grand Prix will not be too dissimilar to the pairs of races at Spielberg and Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). The team will have all its data from winter testing with the SF1000, although the temperature will be much higher and will therefore allow the team to move forward with its work of evaluating the car in different configurations.


The first Spanish Grand Prix to count towards the Formula 1 World Championship was held in 1951 at Pedralbes, near Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), and has been a regular fixture since 1968. Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) has won this event 12 times, the first dating back to 1954 at Pedralbes courtesy of Mike Hawthorn in the 553 F1.


The race has also been held at Jarama, in the Madrid area, which brought Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) wins for Niki Lauda in 1974 and Gilles Villeneuve in 1981, the Canadian keeping a pack of cars behind him so that the first five crossed the line covered by just 1.24 seconds.


Then came Montjuich, also in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), Jerez de la Frontera, where Alain Prost won in 1990 in an F1-90, and, as from 1991, always at Montmelo. Michael Schumacher won here five times, in 1996 and from 2001 to 2004, Felipe Massa (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/12/felipe-massa) in 2007, Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) in 2008 and Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) in 2013.


Simone Resta Head of Chassis Engineering: "We arrive in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) knowing this will not be an easy weekend for us, given how testing went here in February. However, over the five races run so far, we have worked hard to try and improve our car's performance and extract all its potential.


"We will obviously encounter much hotter weather with track temperatures expected to be well above 40 degrees C: it will be an important factor, especially when it comes to the behaviour of the tyres, as we saw at the last two races in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone).


"There will be no particular updates on the SF1000, however Sebastian will have a new chassis, because after the Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) post-race analysis, we spotted a small fault caused by a heavy impact over a kerb. It would not have had much of an effect on performance, but it was the logical decision to take.


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "When you get to the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) track you already know it will be a race where it's the small details that make the difference. The teams and drivers all know this track very well and that's why, right form the start of Friday free practice, you can work on fine tuning the car.


"This circuit is quite different to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and I am curious to find out how the car will feel here. We can expect very high temperatures and so it will be important to find a set-up that allows you to have good speed without causing excessive tyre wear."


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "The Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) track is a classic. Every year we do so many kilometres here in testing and therefore we can say it has no secrets. However, this year, as we will be racing here in the height of summer it will be interesting to see how our car performs in really hot weather.


"As was the case in the two Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) races, I thing tyre management will be very important. It's something we worked on a lot and in England it paid off. It will be important not to make any mistakes in qualifying to try and get the most out of the car in race configuration."

Spanish GP: Preview - Red BullTell us how it feels to get the first win of the season for the team?



Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): It was a massive team achievement for us and Honda to win the race last weekend. It was an amazing result and a bit unexpected, but once we got into the race I could quickly see that we had very good pace. It was really rewarding and it just shows that if you keep pushing towards one goal then great results are possible.


How early in the race did you know that you had the pace to keep up with Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)?

MV: Well, the first stint was going really well, even when we weren't on the same tyre as Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), but I wasn't sure if they were pushing flat out so I just kept it in my mind that maybe in the last few laps they might suddenly find some pace as they are normally very fast. I would say in the middle of that last stint it looked like they were struggling on tyres and didn't have that extra pace over us and from there I felt pretty comfortable out in the lead.


Have you got any new radio messages lined up for this week?

MV: Let's keep this week's a surprise but I think we should keep it going. I didn't think about the Grandma comment in advance though, that just came out while I was driving and wanting to push!


What are your thoughts on the upcoming race in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)?

Alex Albon: Well it's a different track so let's see how competitive we are against Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and how the temperatures have an impact on everyone. The track at Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is also quite hard on the tyres so I'm not sure how they will hold out in the heat. There will be a lot of unknowns as we usually race there earlier in the year, but I'm really looking forward to it and after the win last weekend I'm excited to get back on track.


You put in a brilliant drive on Sunday and showed yet again how impressive you are at overtaking, battling from ninth to
fifth. How do you view the race?

AA: I'm happy, mainly because I think we made a step forward as a team last weekend but also because I'm a bit more comfortable with the car. As a team we had the best pace on the circuit and so that gives everyone, including Max and myself, a boost. It was a really good day for us and yeah I'm happy.


You've shown how strong you are on Sundays and it's now just about getting more comfortable with the car over one lap. Do you feel like we're getting closer to achieving that?

AA: We're getting there. I think two weeks in a row at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) obviously helped us directly compare everything from one week to the next and the car did feel much better at the second race weekend so that's very positive. Of course we still need to do our work and that doesn't all happen overnight but we'll keep pushing and try to extract more from our package to get me more comfortable with the car.


Will the team look at how the RB16 behaves at the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) circuit this weekend compared with pre-season testing, or are you focused on the here and now?

AA: I think the main thing about going back to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is that we more or less know what to expect from the car. The car has obviously developed and so it's different from the one at pre-season testing but it will still keep the same traits.

We've ironed it out a lot more and the car is much better than it was back in February. So this weekend won't be about comparing our package to pre-season, it will be about improving it over last weekend at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) so we continue to push forwards.


The Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya is said to be a "misnomer" in terms of reflecting a car's competitiveness. Do you think there could be some surprises this weekend?

AA: Yes it is but I don't think we're going to see any real surprises. From the races we've done this season we more or less know where everyone stands. As a team we know where we are strong and where we can improve. On paper, Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) was pretty good to us in pre-season testing but it was very early days back then and all the other teams have improved.


Triple headers are highly demanding so how will you spend your time between Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)?

AA: Triple headers are definitely demanding so Monday was just about chilling out at home. I have played some golf and I'll do some training and then it will already be time to fly to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) on Wednesday.


Christian Horner: Last Sunday was a real boost for the team to beat Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) on track and on merit. It was also done in a fitting way, as Formula One celebrated its 70th anniversary with a sensational drive from one of the stars of the future.


Iwould be lying if I said it was also slightly surreal once the podium celebrations had finished. We all got together for the team photos, covered the drivers in Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) and toasted our success, but there was no party afterwards and it was also a shame not to feel the buzz of the fans celebrating with us.


Everyone packed up and went home and that evening I was back with the children and managed to read them a story before they went off to sleep.


So it was pretty strange to think that just a few hours earlier we were winning the 70th Anniversary race and later on that evening I was reading a story about a goat!


There will be time for more celebrations I'm sure but current times have certainly changed the way things are done at the moment.


This victory moves Max into second place in the Drivers' Championship, despite a DNF in the first race of the season in Austria. If you remember, he was running second and had he won those 18 points the championship would be looking even closer.


But that said, you can't look at the ifs and buts, even if the points would be pretty valuable right now. We have what we've got and we are still in the fight.


Perhaps the most stand out element behind his victory actually happened the day before in qualifying.


Our trackside strategist for the weekend, Will, suggested that we try and qualify Max on the hard tyre. Max was able to put in a competitive lap and we had confidence in the predicted cut-off time that it would just be enough that he wouldn't need to run again in Q2.


It was incredibly close. He was only a few tenths clear of the cut-off and that hard tyre is quite a time penalty over a single lap, finishing ninth in Q2. That was a key moment and the rest of it was Max managing the tyre in the race and he did a phenomenal job.


At the end he was having some banter with his race engineer about hydrating and sanitizing his hands, but that just showed how in control he was at the time.


We have never been shy of taking calculated risks on different strategies and that has been one of our biggest strengths over the years.


We have been prepared to take on the risks and that has meant the drivers have to do their jobs. Max absolutely delivered and the pace we had in the race with both cars was phenomenal.


The whole factory has been working incredibly hard during these opening triple-headers and a result like Sunday makes you realise what all that hard work is for and it is the best repayment for all the long hours that are going in at the moment.


It definitely gives you energy when you get a result like that and with this gruelling schedule that is important.

I walked into the factory on Monday morning and there were smiles all round. Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) have been so dominant in the opening races but we beat them fair and square on the track, which is a great feeling and now we just have to carry that momentum forward.


I believe a championship has more value if you have had to fight for it. The championships that we won in 2010 and 2012 that went down to the final race, they were far more rewarding than the ones we ran away with in 2011 and 2013.

There was a real sense of elation because it had been a battle right through to the last moment and we are fighting once more. I think even Lewis said that he wants to be racing for victories, rather than dominating and we are certainly trying to not make life easy for him.


Alex wasn't happy with his Q3 performance on Saturday, he was a few tenths short of where he would have liked to have been on the soft tyre, but his performance again on Sunday was fantastic.


He really delivered everything we could have asked for in that respect and, in another couple of laps he would have been on Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc)'s tail. What really impressed me was his race craft. It was clean but firm and extremely brave with some great overtakes around the outside of Copse being the real stand-out.


It is all about confidence and everyone has to remember that Alex has not got a lot of F1 experience compared to his teammate. People say F1 is not a finishing school, but in many ways it is as these drivers are constantly learning and evolving.


Max would tell you the exact same thing, it takes time to perfect everything when you are competing against the best at the top of any sport.


It is a steep learning curve, particularly when the car is a little moody on occasions but we are all working to get the best out of the car and both drivers.


The races are coming thick and fast and last Sunday's result gives us hope. When we were staring down the barrel of a one-second gap in qualifying to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), it was pretty demoralising.


But I think we have had a better race car than in qualifying and Max has made great use of it.


We tested in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) back in February, which seems such a long time ago now. That data will be a certain reference but given the warmer conditions we expect at the weekend and the changes to the cars, it will all be significantly different.


The interesting aspect will be how hot it is going to be. Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) had a dominant car up until last Sunday, so it is now up to us to understand how we were able to unleash the RB16's full potential last weekend and ensure we remain in the fight. It also shows that Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) can be vulnerable if you put the pressure on and we need to do that on a consistent basis.

Spanish GP: Preview - Alfa RomeoEach racing circuit is unique, like a fingerprint. Every venue has its defining characteristics, the elements that make it what it is, whether it is a set of corners, a set-up quirk or an architectural feature: in the cockpit, or walking through the paddock, this something is what reminds you, constantly, where you are.



Racing drivers, creatures of habit as they are, are very good at grasping what makes each track special. They feel it more than us common people, they adapt to it in the search of performance: as the years go by, each track forms an imprint in their brain, something they recall each time the visor is lowered. A head start, you may call it.


This is all the more true for Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). Of all the tracks that make up the modern Formula One calendar, none is more so deeply ingrained in a driver's psyche than the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya. Day after day of winter testing, every mile pounded into the track leaves its mark. Just as water slowly carves a path through stone, so does this track embed itself in a driver's mind - every corner, every inch of tarmac.


The uphill, never-ending turn three, the fast turn nine, flat in qualifying with sparks sent flying into the sky, the final chicane, deceptively easy: a driver could drive the length of the circuit in a blindfold, so much it is second-nature to them.


The team, both in the garage and in the factory, knows the track just as well. Thousands of laps' worth of data forms a huge wealth of information to draw from: nowhere else is so deeply known.


Coming back to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), then, is like returning to a place you instinctively know. From the moment you cross the circuit's gates, you're confronted with sights and feelings you have experienced countless times before. From the moment you arrive, you're on familiar ground.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "The Circuit in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is definitely a known quantity and possibly the place we know best because of all the testing we've done there over the years. However, this year the conditions will be completely different from what we would be expecting in early May: Spain in August can be extremely hot and we will need to take the weather into account from the moment we set foot on track. It has been only a week since the second race in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and we cannot expect miracles in such a short time, but we will keep working hard to extract the most from our car and make progress in the midfield battle."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "The last few races have shown we need to still find some performance, especially in qualifying, to be as competitive as we need to be. Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is another chance to make a step forward although we have to be realistic: we may know the track well because of all the testing, but so does everyone else so I am not expecting massive surprises."

Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "Another weekend means another chance to improve our package. I believe our Saturday issues have masked some of the pace we have during the race, so we need to keep working on it to be in the fight for points right from the start of the race. We are at the end of the second triple header and it's important to keep focused and make the most of every little opportunity we may get."

Spanish GP: Preview - Racing PointWhat do you enjoy most about visiting Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)?



Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "I know Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) really well. It's such a great place to visit. The weather is always amazing, the food is incredible, and you've got the nice beaches too. We obviously won't be able to explore as we usually do - but hopefully we'll have some fun on track to make up for it."

Like all Formula 1 drivers, you must know the circuit like the back of your hand?

LS: "We certainly get plenty of mileage across the weekend and pre-season testing! It's definitely a familiar circuit and that means everyone will be closely matched in terms of lap time, so it's about extracting every last tenth from yourself and the package to get a good result."


What's the main challenge of Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) really tests the characteristics of your car. If you're fast in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), you can be fast anywhere - that's what makes it such a good place to hold pre-season testing. But we obviously have different challenges and conditions on a race weekend compared to testing. It's also usually where most teams bring upgrades to their cars, so it can also affect relative performance to your rivals.

Do you feel like you have extra support in Spain thanks to your common language?

SP: "I definitely feel the support of the local fans. It's a great motivator and I'm very grateful for that. They always make me feel at home, too. It's a shame the fans can't be there this weekend - but I hope they enjoy following the weekend from home."

How have the past two weeks been for you and how are you feeling heading into the weekend?

SP: "Firstly, I'm very lucky that I've only had mild symptoms, so I've been able to keep training and make sure that I'm ready to jump back behind the wheel of the car. I'm very glad I had my tablet to keep me entertained too, though! I've definitely missed racing and it was hard to watch from the outside. I can't wait to get on track, hopefully this weekend."

Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) has traditionally been Formula 1's European opener, also bringing with it the first round of major car updates. However, the rescheduled 2020 season makes it unlikely that teams will bring significant upgrades here, potentially featuring minor tweaks to the cars instead.

Few circuits are as familiar to modern F1 than Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). The venue of pre-season testing, this is a track at which extensive running throughout the year helps close the gaps between the teams slightly, as there are so few unknowns.

One of the challenges in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is the temperature. Although the teams will have rafts of data from pre-season, it will have been collected on a track that measured around 20°C. Racing in the summer will likely see those track temperatures reach around 50°C. This makes validating the car harder, and is a key factor to understand in the practice sessions.

Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) features some of the high-speed characteristics experienced last time out at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) balanced with low-speed features in the final sector comparable with those of the Hungaroring (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/6/budapest). This is a track that tests every aspect of an F1 car.

Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is an average speed circuit with a good spread of different corner styles. It emphasises balancing efficiency in terms of the load and drag of the car. Cars tend to run a less efficient aero package here - tolerating the extra drag of the bigger rear wings in order to help get the maximum downforce in the corners.

Spanish GP: Preview - HaasAfter two races at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) it is a voyage to another familiar terrain for the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team with the Circuit de

Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya playing host to Formula One's rearranged Spanish Grand Prix.



Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is a city where artistry, culture and sporting excellent is often interwoven, from the hands of Gaudí to the feet of Messi, and every year Formula One adds its piece of history to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)'s landscape.


Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) has been on Formula One's calendar since 1991 and for several years it has been the exclusive location for pre-season testing, giving an indication of the running order and the potential strengths and weaknesses of the respective competitors. The attributes that make the 4.655km circuit ideal for testing means it provides an all-round assessment of a Formula One car's ability.


But despite the familiarity it will be a new challenge for teams with the championship due to visit in August for the first time in the circuit's 30-year history, after the grand prix was postponed from its original May date. A lot of focus will be on tire usage, on account of the high-energy nature of the corners and the expected hot weather in the height of Spain's summer, while it will also show how each team has progressed since pre-season testing was held way back in February.

Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team's maiden outing in Formula One came at the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya during pre-season testing in 2016 and the Catalan circuit has been favorable to the team. Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) placed sixth in 2018 while in 2019 a second straight double Q3 appearance was followed by both cars classifying inside the top 10 in the race. Courtesy of myriad test days, and the annual Spanish Grand Prix, Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team has more experience of Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) than any other venue. Its machinery has completed over 24,000km of running at the circuit - more than halfway around the world - which is equivalent to 5,160 laps.


The 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) had a couple of highlights for the team in Romain's Q2 performance on Saturday and Kevin's trademark getaway at the start of Sunday's race. Are those things you feel the team can build on as the season continues to unfold?

Guenther Steiner: "How we are performing at the moment, I think this is the best we can get out of it. Setting some highlights is good for the team and it's good for the fans - they can still see that we're there and we're fighting every moment of a weekend. Romain's lap in Q1 qualifying to get into Q2 was fantastic. Kevin's made a lot of good starts this year. In the future we just need to make sure we have some good races."


With tires and tire management having dominated much of Formula One's double-stint at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) - is that simply part of the package in modern Formula One racing, is it now a skillset which young drivers need coming up through the ranks?

GS: "The tires are obviously the dominating factor now, but not only now, they were over the last years. It's always been how well you can use your tire. I think it's the same now already in the feeder series, in F2 and F3, the young drivers need to learn how to manage these tires. In my opinion tires should not be the main focus in racing. They should be part of racing, but not the main focus. Hopefully, by introducing the new tire in 2022 - the 18-inch wheel, things change."


Is there value in going to Spain now and comparing the data from the VF-20 with what was learned in pre-season testing in February, or does the temperature difference racing there in August simply negate any possible comparison?

GS: "Having data is always very good, and we've got a lot of data from Spain from both testing and racing there. But referencing the previous questions, the tires are a very big factor in what you're doing. The temperature, for sure, plays a big role in how you can use your car. The good thing is we can go back and compare our performance, and what we achieved in February, to what we're achieving now. So, it's good to have something to compare. I'm looking forward to it."


It was pre-season testing in Spain back in 2016 that Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team debuted its VF-16 prior to its first season in Formula One. What are your memories of being at the track in February 2016 and preparing to show the motorsport world the fruits of your labors putting a new Formula One team together?

GS: "I think, without a doubt, it was a big moment for myself and the team, because putting a complete new Formula One team together in the way that we did it, it hadn't been done in a long time. It was one of the highlights of my life, and the highlight of Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team because it was our first time on the circuit. It's always good to back there and think about that moment when we rolled out of the garage - it always gives me goosebumps. I always remember that moment each year when we arrive in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)."


The Spanish Grand Prix has often proved to be a happy hunting ground for the team, including last year's double points score with Romain and Kevin. What are your highlights from racing there and what do you think is on offer for the team this weekend?

GS: "Last year, with the double points-score, having had a bit of a difficult season up until then, it was very good. In another way it maybe wasn't so good as we believed in our upgrade, which then ultimately, we put back on the shelf and went back to the Melbourne (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/10/melbourne) spec. Getting the points last year was a nice moment, but maybe for going forward in the season the package was the wrong thing to do. You learn out of all this and I hope we don't make that mistake again.

For this weekend, hopefully the racetrack suits our car, it's not such a power sensitive circuit. Hopefully we can get something done, it will be difficult like every track this year, but it looks a little bit better for us. We'll find out on Saturday and Sunday this week."


With tires and tire management having dominated much of Formula One's double-stint at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) - does that frustrate you as a racing driver or is it simply part of the package in modern Formula One?

Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "I guess it is part of modern Formula One, but if you ask me what I think of it, yes - it's a bit disappointing. It's not that the tires wear, that's understandable, the more you push the more you wear the tire. I think the disappointing part is that you need to manage the temperature for overheating, therefore you have to drive slower to keep the grip, so you reduce your lengths. I think the driver should have an impact on the tire wear, for sure, but not so much on the performance of the tires because they overheat."


Is your Q2 qualifying performance from the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix the highlight of your season to-date? What was the key to unlocking those qualifying laps both in Q1 and Q2 in the VF-20?

RG: "I guess the key to getting the laps in both in Q1 and Q2 was to keep going in the direction we worked on at the British Grand Prix. I didn't have a good qualifying session, but I thought we had the pace to go into Q2. I was really hoping at the second race weekend I was going to do the job - I did, and the car felt good. The set-up direction we took worked really well for me; I was happy with it. I have a much better front end on the car, and that's really helping me to improve qualifying. So, yes, it's a highlight of the season, and I'd say in both races I was performing as well as I could with the VF-20. The Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) races were really good."


Is there value in going to Spain now and comparing the data from the VF-20 with what was learned in pre-season testing in February, or does the temperature difference racing there in August simply negate any possible comparison?

RG: "I think we need to see the weather, but it's most likely that it's going to be hot. It will therefore be very different from winter testing. The car has matured, and we've evolved from where we were. I guess we'll have a look, just out of interest, but my feeling is that it's going to be very different."


What are your Spanish Grand Prix highlights from your five point-scoring performances there in Formula One?

RG: "I think it's from 2012 - where I scored my only fastest-lap in a grand prix in the Lotus E20. It was good race, I really enjoyed it. 2014, I had a terrible car, but I managed to score points. I've had some good races there. We all know the track very well, but obviously we always try to do the best that we can."


The 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) once again allowed you to demonstrate your prowess launching off the line as you gained four spots on the opening lap. What's the key to a great start and why do you think you're so good at it?

Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "My starts this year have been very good. I'm taking a lot of joy on the first lap trying to make up a lot of positions. Naturally, with our qualifying performance lacking, it's crucial to make up for that and the opening lap is the best opportunity to do that. I'm putting a lot of emphasis on getting a good start and taking every position that I can on the first lap. It's just about being focused and alert on the lap to be able to see the gaps and the opportunities. Then you go for it."


With tires and tire management having dominated much of Formula One's double-stint at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) - does that frustrate you as a racing driver or is it simply part of the package in modern Formula One?

KM: "The fact that we had softer tires with higher degradation last weekend was a good thing, I think, overall. Of course, for myself, I had a lot of blistering and graining - basically my tires fell apart and I couldn't finish the race. The blistering was so bad at the end it was becoming a safety issue; therefore, we retired the car. But, if we could have these soft tires without the degradation or any safety issues, that would be great. I think one-stop races are less interesting, having more stops in a race offers more variables in strategies and it makes it more exciting racing."


Is there value in going to Spain now and comparing the data from the VF-20 with what was learned in pre-season testing in February, or does the temperature difference racing there in August simply negate any possible comparison?

KM: "I think it's going to be interesting. We looked stronger in winter testing in Spain than we've been in these first five races. Hopefully that will be the case again when we get back to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). I'm hoping we can qualify slightly better and have better pace. It would be great to get a few more points if we could. We're going to go for it in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)."


You've had back-to-back point-scoring finishes for Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team in Spain - what are your Spanish Grand Prix highlights?

KM: "I would say Spain's been one of the tracks where we've been fairly successful as a team. Naturally I'm looking forward to going back there with those memories and good experiences. I'm hopeful we continue that form in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and get another point scoring finish. It's not a given, and we'll have to work hard to bounce back from the tough races we had at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone)."

Spanish GP: Preview - WilliamsWith almost the first six races of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship in the book, we return to familiar ground this weekend as the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya plays host to the Spanish Grand Prix. The track has a good mix of high and low speed corners and is a circuit very familiar to both George and Nicholas, who have spent huge amounts of time pounding around it during winter testing. This weekend, the FW43 will carry the Israel Start-Up logo for the duration of the weekend as the team's Official Test Driver, Roy Nissany will take part in his first FP1 outing of the season.



Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: To complete the second triple-header of the season, we return to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) and a circuit that all the teams know very well. We were here in February for winter testing but returning for a race in August is a very different prospect. Pirelli have brought their hardest tyre compounds - as we raced a fortnight ago at the first of the Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) races - and our first priority will be to understand them in the hot summer conditions.

Roy Nissany will drive George's car during FP1 at this event. We spent time with Roy in Abu Dhabi at the end of last year and we know that he will immediately be up to speed and contributing to the important test plan on Friday. We continue to push the FW43 hard and this return to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is an opportunity to explore again the higher downforce set-ups at a circuit that we know well.


The back-to-back races place a heavy strain on all those who travel, but we are grateful for the opportunity to be in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) competing in another round of the 2020 Formula One Championship. We are conscious of the coronavirus situation in the city and we wish the region a speedy return to normality. We look forward to returning and being able to enjoy the Spanish hospitality soon.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67654/drivers/66/george-russell): Off the back of two very different Grands Prix at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), one being cold with hard tyres and one being hot with soft tyres, I think that has given us some good learning. This week in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is going to be really tricky as we normally race there in May, now we are racing there in August. However, I am excited to get back driving again and hopefully put in another good Saturday, but this time focus on doing the same job on Sunday.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I am looking forward to the last race of the second triple-header as I feel that I have consistently been making gains race on race. I am looking forward to trying to put everything together on the Saturday. I think Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) will be a nice track to solidify and see the performance of the car relative to our direct competitors. It is a track that is a benchmark for Formula One as it has a bit of everything, and I am confident we will go well there.


Roy Nissany: I am very keen to get in the car in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). Driving an FP1 for the first time is a huge milestone for every driver, yet for me, it is also a national achievement to be carrying the Israeli flag. I have thoroughly been preparing for it with the team and I believe we can get great value out of it.

Spanish GP: Preview - PirelliThe Spanish Grand Prix is held at the familiar venue of the Circuit de Catalunya, but in the heat of mid-August for the first time. The three hardest compounds in the F1 tyre range have been selected: C1 as P Zero White hard, C2 as P Zero Yellow Medium, and C3 as P Zero Red soft.



This was actually the same compound choice as last year, because as well as being very hot in summer, the Montmelo circuit is always a big challenge for tyres at any time of year. The main reason for this is the high-energy corners such as Turn 3, which generate considerable G forces.


Although the teams all tested at Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) in February and March, there is set to be a dramatic temperature increase this weekend in the height of summer.


The Circuit de Catalunya was resurfaced two years ago, but the track has progressively matured since, bringing the surface more into line with how it used to be.


All but one of the drivers stopped for tyres twice last year, in a race that was affected by a lengthy safety car period towards the end. There were four different strategies in the top five, at a race in mid-May with track temperatures in excess of 40 degrees.


The planned test of 2021 prototype tyres during the first half-hour of FP2 in Spain has been rescheduled for a later grand prix, in order to give time to design some new prototypes for next year.


Mario Isola: "Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) concludes the second triple-header of this intense season to date. Although it will be the third time that the teams drive at the Circuit de Catalunya this year, following the two pre-season tests, the conditions they will encounter this weekend are likely to be very different: both because of the warm weather, and all the improvements made to the cars since winter testing.


"The expected high temperatures in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) in mid-August will increase thermal degradation on a track already well-known for being tough on tyres, so it' going to be particularly important to manage them and control any overheating that affects traction.


"Free practice will be crucial to accurately establishing tyre behaviour under these challenging circumstances. With the current cars being faster than ever - as Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) recently confirmed - and the Spanish Grand Prix never being run in August before, this should be the most demanding race for tyres we’ve seen at the Circuit de Catalunya."

Resultados FP1
Viernes, 14 de agosto de 2020


Las temperaturas superiores a las que están acostumbrados a rodar en Montmeló no han impedido a los Mercedes encabezar los primeros libres de este fin de semana con Valtteri BOTTAS quedando por delante de HAMILTON. A pesar de las altas temperaturas, no se ha visto una gran degradación en los neumáticos.

De nuevo, tras los Mercedes ha terminado VERSTAPPEN.

Los Ferrari de LECLERC y VETTEL han terminado en 4ª y 5ª posición y separados ambos por soloo 11 milésimas. A ver si Vettel este fin de semana está más cómodo y logra permanecer en los tiempos de su compañero o incluso logra mejorarlos para alejar a los fantasmas que parece tener este año.

Sorprende la posición de los Haas, con GROSJEAN terminando 6º y MAGNUSSEN 9º.

CHECO muestra su completa recuperación terminando 7º y a dos décimas de su compañero STROLL, que ha terminado 10º.

ALBON comunicó por radio falta de potencia en su motor, aunque logró finalizar 8º.

Carlos SAINZ ha terminado 11º. Tras él han finalizado OCON y NORRIS, los tres en la misma décima.

Extraño ver a RICCIARDO terminando 18º.

La clasificación la cierran los Williams de LATIFI y el novato NISSANY.

El paseo de Mercedes continúa con esta vez Lewis HAMILTON terminando primero y BOTTAS segundo, con otra vez VERSTAPPEN finalizando justo tras ellos.

Si sorprendió que RICCIARDO acabara en la sesión anterior tan abajo, en esta sorprende verlo acabar en 4ª posición. Parece que para él marcar una buena vuelta de calificación no es tanto problema como tener un buen ritmo de carrera.

GROSJEAN vuelve a quedar más arriba de lo habitual al terminar 5º. Tras él LECLERC.

Algo mejor que la sesión anterior le ha ido a Carlos SAINZ que ha relizado muchos cambios en su coche, incluido el chásis, para intentar solucionar los problemas de calentamiento que tuvo la semana pasada. Parece que no han logrado arreglar el problema y las sospechas caen sobre la unidad de potencia.

Gené ha comentado que parece que VETTEL está algo más cómodo con el nuevo chásis aunque sigue sin estar contento del todo. Esta sesión ha terminado 12º.

Las últimas posiciones vuelven a ser para los de siempre, los Williams y los Alfa Romeo.

En general, ningún piloto ha estado contento con el rendimiento del neumático duro.

Las imprersiones de lso equipos después de estas primeras pruebas libres:

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - MercedesValtteri set the pace in first practice, with Lewis just 0.039s behind in P2. Lewis finished the second session in P1, with Valtteri in P2.



The team focused on long and short run tyre performance during the two practice sessions.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): It's definitely been quite tough out there today. I don't think I've ever been to Spain when it's been this hot. The weather is beautiful, but it's tricky for the car and very tough on the tyres as well. It's also been quite windy and that can make it difficult out there, but it's a good challenge. It's been a positive day, particularly the second session which went better for me. We didn't see any blistering, the tyres felt OK and the long runs didn't look too bad, but we also didn't see any blistering last Friday, so we'll have to remain careful. We'll debrief this evening and see where we stand and what we can do to improve. The Red Bulls look very close to us on the long runs, so we can expect another close race here.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): It's been a good day for us, and we've gained plenty of learnings. It's a nice feeling to be back on track here and feeling the improvements of the car since we were last here, back in pre-season testing. The car felt good out there, but obviously there's some fine-tuning to do. The morning session was a bit better for me today than the afternoon. I struggled with some understeer at the beginning of FP1, but that was quite easy to fix, and it felt a lot better by the end of the session. We did long runs on all of the tyre compounds today and I didn't experience any blistering, so there will be lots of learnings for us to look into in order to really maximise tyre performance here. We're looking strong but the main thing will be Sunday with these temperatures and whether we can keep these tyres in a good condition.


Andrew Shovlin: It's been pretty hot here today with the air temperature around 30°C and the track around 50°C. Our programme was fairly standard, mainly trying to learn about the tyres in the hot conditions. Our single-lap pace looks promising, we seem to be getting the Soft tyre to work fairly well in particular. The long-run is more of a challenge and the area we need to work on tonight. The story looks similar to recent races; we're reasonable compared to all cars except Verstappen - with him it looks very close. The strategy options are fairly open here both with the number of stops and start tyre - as such it's important that we can find a bit more pace before Sunday.

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - FerrariUnconcerned by the mid-August heat during Friday's free practice for the Spanish Grand Prix, the sixth round of the season, Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel), who had a chassis change, completed 125 laps of the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya circuit, covering the equivalent of almost a race distance each. The planned programme for both SF1000s was completed, which means that, as usual, the team has plenty of data to prepare for the race and for tomorrow's qualifying.



In the morning, both drivers began work with a few laps on the Hard tyre before switching to the softest compound Pirelli has brought to Catalunya and it was on this tyre that they both set their best laps: for Charles a 1:17.970 and for Sebastian a 1:17.981. In the final minutes of the session, as usual the two SF1000s ran with a higher fuel load and also did some practice starts. Both drivers did 27 laps each.


Track temperature for the second free practice session almost hit the 50 degree mark and so, despite it being more rubbered-in, neither of the drivers managed to improve on their previous best time. Charles and Sebastian concentrated mainly on fine tuning the car for the race, covering 71 laps in total: 35 for the former and 36 for the latter.


Both drivers began on the Medium tyres that they had not tried in the morning. Their best times were 1:19.050 for Leclerc and 1:19.322 for Vettel. Then in the middle of the session they switched to the Softs for qualifying simulation runs, Leclerc posting a 1:18.147 and Vettel was fractionally slower in 1:18.404. Shortly after the mid-point of the session they switched to evaluating the car's handling on different fuel loads, splitting the programme to get as much data as possible. Charles started on Softs before switching to Mediums, while Sebastian did the opposite.


The final 60 minutes of free practice starts at 12 CET tomorrow, in preparation for qualifying at 15. The Spanish Grand Prix starts on Sunday 16 August at 15.10. The next two days are also expected to be very hot.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "It has been quite a good day, once again better than expected, which is positive. Our quali pace was good, even though there's still some work to do here and there to improve, so I am confident we can extract the maximum out of the car in quali and if I manage to get the balance where I want it to be we can have a pretty good result.


"Also, the race simulation we did went fairly well. We have a lot of data on this track from winter testing, but it's very difficult to compare it with the data we gathered today in such different conditions. With regards to the heat, out on track is not that hard because at least there's some air, but when you are in the garage it's like being in a sauna!"


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It was a mixed day: I was reasonably happy in terms of our one lap pace, even if in the afternoon I struggled a bit more to put the laps together. However generally I have a better feeling with the car. Today we tried a few things and we have learned some things we can use tomorrow. Let's see where we are after quali.


"In terms of race pace we should be quite okay, but obviously there is still some work to do. In particular, managing the tyres will be key and with the high temperatures expected to continue, this will be far from easy."

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "The car was performing quite well and overall it was a positive day. Over one lap we are clearly still lacking to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) but on the long runs the car felt nice to drive which is of course what is important for the race. We are using the hardest tyre compounds here which is different to last weekend. I would maybe have liked the softer tyres (laughs) but that is not for us to choose, the tyres are manageable and it is pretty hot out there! I expect in Qualifying that Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) will still have the edge as they are very fast but who knows in the race. I felt quite good today so let's see
if I feel the same on Sunday when it matters."



Alex Albon: "I felt pretty comfortable with the car in FP1 and I think we found a good direction in that session. We tried a few things in FP2 that didn't quite go the way we wanted them to but that's what Friday's are for, seeing what works and what doesn't. We'll have a look at the data this evening to see how we can maximise our performance tomorrow.

The tyre degradation today felt okay compared to last weekend at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), saying that, it's tricky out there with track temperatures at around 48 degrees so there will be a lot of tyre management on race day, that's for sure!"

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team ran a productive practice programme today at a scorching hot Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya, in build-up to this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix.



Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) was the fourth quickest driver of the day in Free Practice 2 with team-mate Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) ninth in the same session.


Under the red-hot Spanish sun, both drivers were fresh out the blocks in the morning session running a series of aero tests on the Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) R.S.20.


Both drivers reported quite low grip during Free Practice 1 with attention for the afternoon geared towards learning more on high fuel and answering questions on predicted race strategy.


Daniel's Soft tyre run midway through the session was good enough for fourth place with Esteban - also on Softs - half a second adrift, but still comfortably inside the top ten.


Conditions are hot here but consistent for the rest of the weekend. We ran smoothly throughout the day with more to find ahead of qualifying.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "It's been a pretty good day for us, especially the afternoon's running. On the timesheets, at least, it's another decent Friday: third last week, fourth today, so we'll try and keep that going. Our long run was looking quite competitive as well. I wasn't too happy with the car in the morning, but we made a good step in the afternoon, similar to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) last week. The tricky thing here is the heat. We haven't driven here in the heat for so long and it's completely different to what we felt at winter testing. We're trying to understand that, but we got a better grasp on it this afternoon with the tyres in a better place. We have more work to do before tomorrow, but we'll aim to put in a good one."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It's not been an easy day, but nevertheless, we'll work hard tonight and find some solutions. Conditions are very warm here and that doesn't make things easy. On our side, we have a bit of work to do at the moment, especially on car behaviour and finding some consistency. It was a little challenging to drive - especially with rear stability - and we're not on top of the issue from Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) yet. The good thing is that the car has great pace and we just need to unlock it. Physically, a tough day too in the heat but I'm feeling fine and ready for tomorrow."


Ciaron Pilbeam, Chief Race Engineer: "We've had a smooth day's running with both cars getting through their programmes without any hiccups. We've looked at all three tyre compounds this afternoon between the cars with the usual analysis to follow. Daniel's Soft tyre run certainly looked quite competitive. Esteban, meanwhile, has been less happy in the car all day, so we've got some digging to do tonight to find the cause of that. It seems to be the same issue throughout the day more or less. That aside, it's been good day's running and the conditions look to stay the same for the rest of the weekend. We have more to build on from today."

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - McLarenCarlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "A normal Friday for us, where we tried a couple of test items and mainly tried to understand the overheating issue we had in my car over the last weekend. Unfortunately, the problem is still there and costing lap-time, so we'll keep investigating in order to take the best decision.



"Apart from that, performance-wise, the car wasn't too bad today. There are still a few changes to make for tomorrow, but the main focus point now is still the cooling."


Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A tricky day in terms of getting to know the car a bit around here, but not too bad to be honest. We're trying a few of the things we struggled with in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), but we also made a fresh start as it's a new track.

"I think we're fairly comfortable, we've got a good direction to work in but we're not there yet - I'm basically looking for more grip overall. The car doesn't feel bad, so I think we can make some improvements overnight and be a bit more competitive. On the whole, today was clean, we got our running in, got a good understanding of the car - that's what's most important."


Andrea Stella, Racing Director: "We've had a productive Friday and have been able to work through all our planned test items and improve our understanding of the balance of the car, the level of grip and the tyres. The temperature in August is, of course, hotter than we're used to in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) for the race, and that creates some particular challenges for cooling and tyre temperature. We still see the split of temperatures across cars and we'll make further changes tomorrow in order to resolve this anomaly.


"On the tyre side, it looks like the behaviour is more typical than we saw in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), where we suffered with some issues. We know that when the track is windy, our car becomes a bit temperamental, but we'll try to extract the most out of it tomorrow and be fighting for Q3 to give us the best chance of good points on Sunday."

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It was a positive Friday for us, we managed to do quite a few laps and completed an extensive test session. In FP2 we managed to finish in the top 10, even if I still feel like I'm not fully happy with the car. We weren't able to get the balance exactly where I wanted it to be unlike in recent weekends, so I think we'll have a bit of work to do for tomorrow in order to improve the balance, find a bit more performance and be in a good position for Qualifying."



Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "We had a productive Friday, we managed to do quite a few laps despite having a problem in the morning.
It was not ideal to miss the first part of FP1, but we managed to recover some of the lost time in FP2, so I'm looking forward to putting together a clean day tomorrow and have a strong result in Qualifying. We've got some work to do tonight to understand where the car is at and where we can find the last couple of tenths to put us in a position to fight for the top 10."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "We had two weeks of testing here when the car was brand new back in February, and it's good to be back. This year we are in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) later than when we typically come for the race, so we need to take a lot of our historical data for this track with a pinch of salt because the track temperatures and the weather are extremely different to what we had in March, and what we normally experience when we come here in May. Today we had 50-degree track temperatures which have a big impact on the car. Unfortunately, in FP1 we had a minor hydraulic issue on Dany's car that we were able to fix and get him back out, but it meant he missed some track time which put him on the back foot.


"It was a very hot track so both drivers were struggling for overall grip and to find a good balance on the car, so we analysed the data between FP1 and FP2 and made some small changes to the car based on what we saw in the morning.

I think we showed a step in performance and we were able to improve our competitiveness. Pierre got a good lap on his Option tyre, while there's still a bit more to come for Dany as so far, he's had less track time this weekend. The short-run is looking reasonable and in line with expectations, and we're happy with our pace on the long runs too, so we're positive for the rest of the weekend.


"It looks like the midfield is extremely tight again, a tenth of a second can make the difference between four places in Qualifying, so we need to look through all the data tonight to decide what to do as for the tyre allocation for the race on Sunday and get everything together for a good Qualifying."

I'm very pleased to be behind the wheel and working with my team again. I thought it would take me some time to get back up to speed after missing two race weekends, but I'm pleased that I was able to get back into the rhythm very quickly. It was a physical day out there in the high temperatures, but the main thing is that we showed promising pace, so I'm looking forward to qualifying tomorrow. We completed today's programme, and I'm happy with what we achieved, so we can aim for a good result in qualifying and points on Sunday."



Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was pretty toasty out there! I'm looking forward to a cold shower now! It wasn't the easiest Friday, but we know there are areas where we can make improvements overnight and for Sunday, so I'm confident we can take a good step forward. We've seen in today's running that a strong race result will require good tyre management as the track temperature is so high this weekend. Now that we've experienced these types of conditions, we can go away and make sure we set the car up as well as possible for tomorrow and Sunday. It was great to see Checo back in the car too.

I'm confident that we'll be fighting for points on Sunday."

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - HaasThe sixth round of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship began with practice Friday at Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) -
Catalunya as teams prepared for Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix.



Two 90-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - were run in mostly sunny conditions on the 4.655-kilometer (2.892-mile), 16-turn circuit with air temperature hitting 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) and track temperature peaking at 49 degrees Celsius (120.2 degrees Fahrenheit).


Grosjean kicked off his FP1 program on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium tire while Magnussen utilized the White hard compound to start. Both drivers transitioned onto the Red soft rubber for their fastest laps of the opening session.

Grosjean banked a 1:18.291 to place sixth at the checkered. Magnussen joined his teammate in the top 10 courtesy of a 1:18.620 lap - good for ninth overall.


Grosjean commenced FP2 with a nine-lap sampling of the hard rubber - with Magnussen opting for mediums for a seven-lap stint. They both bolted on fresh sets of soft tires for their qualifying simulations. Grosjean improved upon his morning lap time clocking a 1:18.133 - earning the Frenchman fifth spot on the timesheet. A 1:18.761 proved to be Magnussen's quickest time of the session placing the Dane 16th at the checkered. The run plan concluded with high-fuel, long-distance runs.


Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team ran a total of 122 laps on Friday across the two practice sessions - 64 by Magnussen and 58 by Grosjean.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "I don't really know where this performance came from. In all fairness, it's the same car from the beginning of the year, we've just been making some good set-up work since Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). The performance there was really good, but it was power sensitive, here that's maybe a little less. Sixth in FP1, fifth in FP2, then the long-run pace was pretty good too - we're really happy with all that. There's a little bit more work to be done on the car to bring it more to my liking. I hope nothing changes though, I hope this all stays the same so tomorrow we can go for a really good qualifying session - that would definitely set up a good weekend."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "It's been a positive day. I didn't get a great run on low fuel in FP2, so my best lap time doesn't look good, but Romain (Grosjean) showed what's in the car. Running on high fuel, it was all very positive. The car seems to be working very well around here. It's been very hot, there's a lot of heat in the tires, but it seems to be working. I think this track obviously suits us a little better. I'm pretty positive and very happy with today. It'll be harder tomorrow, but hopefully we can get a little further up in qualifying than we have done so far this year, from there we can have a good race."


Guenther Steiner: "For sure, these have been our best Friday sessions this year. This kind of circuit, where there's less high-speed sectors, it helps us as it's a lot less power sensitive. We've always been relatively good here in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), I don't know the reason why. I was cautiously optimistic in testing at the beginning of the year, and this shows that I wasn't wrong. So, it looks encouraging but I'm not getting over-enthusiastic about it yet because we still have to qualify on Saturday and race on Sunday. There are still a lot of things we need to get right - which we could get wrong, so I don't want to be negative. But overall, I think this is a big boost for the team. It's great that we've been this competitive today, it's an uplift for everybody. Now we have to put in the hard work so we don't make any mistakes over the next two days. Hopefully we'll bring home a good result."

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - Alfa RomeoBarcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona): we've all been here so many times, we've all stomped around this circuit until no corner has any secrets left. And yet, despite the countless laps we've notched here throughout the years, today's sessions were just as important as any other race weekend's Friday.



It's a lot hotter in August than in May, let alone in February, in this part of the world. The reams of data we have on this little corner of Catalonia matter for little in today's conditions. That's why every lap counts, and that's why we went out to complete our programme to its full extent.


This Spanish Grand Prix, in this crazy 2020, is nothing like the past.


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It was a fairly regular Friday: we tried various things, trying to find the best way to set up the car for tomorrow. The car feels very similar to the last few races, you can't expect big changes in such a short time, and that's not yet where we want it to be. The key at this stage is to understand how to extract the best from the package we have at the moment."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "Not the easiest day to start our Spanish Grand Prix weekend: we struggled a little in these conditions and there is a lot we can improve in terms of pace. We know there's a lot of work ahead of us, we need to make some solid work tonight and try our best in the limited amount of time we will have in FP3 tomorrow."

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - WilliamsDave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Roy Nissany drove the car during FP1 and did a very good job, showing good pace and completing his part of the test programme without issue. Between the two cars we got through quite a lot of chassis work during FP1, but the main observations were around the tyres, which clearly weren't easy to use in the hot conditions.



George was back in the car for FP2 and during the session we began our work on qualifying and race preparation, but we struggled for basic pace at both fuel levels. We need to make some sizeable changes to the car overnight to get us closer to the pack, but we have a good idea of what we need to do and we're sure that we can get it together overnight and put in a stronger performance tomorrow.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It was definitely very hot out there and the conditions were much more humid compared to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). It was a tricky day trying to get the right settings for one lap performance versus high fuel running. Especially after the previous rounds where we seemed a bit more competitive compared to our direct competitors, it seemed we were struggling a bit more today. We have lot of homework to do tonight to try and get back on the pace of the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and Alfa tomorrow.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67687/drivers/66/george-russell): It was very tough; I think the track temperatures being so high meant that the tyres were really struggling for everyone in these difficult conditions. It wasn't awfully pleasant, and I think we have a bit of work to do to get on top of it for tomorrow. I was a bit off the ball to start the short run having missed FP1, and then going straight in on the hard tyre didn't help. We are not used to seeing Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) with these track conditions, we pre-empted that, but I think we need to go a step further. I think we can get some more pace out of the car for tomorrow, but I think Q2 which has been our focus and our aim in the last few races will be pretty tough this weekend.


Roy Nissany: It was a very positive session and I am pleased with my performance. Working with the team was perfect, we were quite close with the pace and I think it was a very encouraging experience for my first outing. I have learnt a lot and I think I gave good feedback to the team in terms of the development of the car. I come away with very positive feelings and I am already looking forward to the next one.

Spanish GP: Practice team notes - PirelliTrack temperatures exceeded 50 degrees today in the afternoon, but it was Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) who set the fastest time on the P Zero Red soft compound in the morning, comfortably improving the equivalent time from free practice last year. His team mate Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) went quickest in the afternoon's FP2 session, also on soft, but failed to beat Bottas's time from FP1.



With the three hardest tyres in the P Zero F1 range nominated for the very first Spanish Grand Prix to be held in August, the teams concentrated on understanding how the three compounds performed in these high temperatures, over both short and long runs with different fuel loads.


With the high temperatures set to persist tomorrow, teams also evaluated the possibility of going through Q2 on the medium compound.


While the top three in both sessions today were familiar - the two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), followed by the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) of Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) - there were some strong performances in FP2 from Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo)'s Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) in fourth and Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean)'s Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) in fifth.


Mario Isola: "Tyre performance today was in line with our expectations, with the gaps between the compounds as we thought they would be. Today's work consisted of evaluation of all the different compounds, with assessment of the soft over the course of one lap as well as over a longer run probably being one of the keys to the strategy. So far, there's a distinct performance gap between the soft and the hard, which makes it important to understand how to maximise the soft, with some teams perhaps already looking at a potential two-stop strategy involving the soft, in order to capitalise on the extra speed. That analysis will continue overnight, but all three compounds look set to play an interesting role here as things stand, as we saw from the extensive running on each compound throughout free practice."

Sebastian VETTEL sigue bastante lejos de su compañero. Ha sido medio segundo más lento y ha terminado 12º, justo por detrás de los Renault de RICCIARDO y OCON.

GROSJEAN vuelve a quedar en posiciones a las que nos tiene más acostumbrado el Haas al finalizad 13º. Se confirma que ayer rodaron con el mínimo de gasolina.

Tras él han terminado RAIKKÖNEN y Lando NORRIS.

No hay sorpresa al ver a Max VERSTAPPEN terminando en tercera posición, aunque ya a 7 décimas de los Mercedes. Una pena que el equipo alemán tenga tanta superioridad porque por abajo la cosa está bastante igualada.

Tras ellos saldrán los McLaren, con Carlos SAINZ 7º y NORRIS 8º. Sainz ha comentado que no tuvo un buen último sector, lo que noo le ha permitido quedar por delante de Albon. Solo 15 milésimas lo separan.

Por 3 milésimas le toca salir a LECLERC por detrás de Norris y junto a GASLY.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la sesión de clasificación:

Spanish GP: Qualifying team notes - MercedesLewis scored his 92nd pole in F1, his fourth of the 2020 season and fifth at the Spanish GP. Valtteri missed out by just 0.059s, but secured the team's 68th front row lockout.



Today's result marks the 200th pole position in F1 for Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-Benz power - it also marks the 150th front row place for Lewis in F1.


Both drivers will start the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix on the Soft tyre.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): This is a great result for the team and I'm grateful for everyone continuing to push. It was very hot and quite gusty out there which made for a tricky session. We changed a few things overnight, made a good step forward and I was pretty happy with my first laps in each Qualifying session. The first Q3 lap was really solid but there was still a bit of room for improvement. But my second lap wasn't particularly great and I just couldn't go quicker. In the end, it was very close with Valtteri out there, he's keeping me on my toes and every millisecond counts. Tomorrow is going to be challenging, as the race scenario is completely different. Over a single lap, we seem to have the edge, but Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s race pace looks strong and the run down to Turn 1 is very long, so I'm expecting a tough battle.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): I knew it was going to be close with Lewis, but he did a really nice and clean lap on that first run in Q3. Particularly in sector three, where I've been struggling a bit all through today. The balance of the car wasn't quite right for me in that sector, but it kept getting better and better through Qualifying. In the end, it just wasn't quite good enough, which is a little annoying. Lewis did a good job and it's been another really strong performance as a team that we can be proud of. Looking to tomorrow, my long runs have been competitive but the person at the front always has the best chance, so that long run down to Turn 1 at the start will be my best opportunity and I'll try to get there first.

The Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) looked very strong in the long runs, so I'm sure they'll be quick tomorrow as well.


Toto Wolff: It was a good day in the office, and we can be pleased with today's result. Again, we were able to put in a strong Qualifying performance, but we know that tomorrow is what counts. It's expected to be as hot here as it was at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) last weekend, and we saw what happened there - the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) was clearly the fastest in race trim. Looking at the long runs on Friday, they're expected to be the benchmark tomorrow, so we need to have a clever race, manage it from the front, knowing the quickest car on track will likely be behind us with Verstappen. We'll be pushing hard to get the most points we can and take the win, but if that's not possible then it will be focusing on the best damage limitation in these tricky conditions.


Andrew Shovlin: Well done to the drivers and the team on a very solid front row lockout. Whilst it's nice to have both cars at the front, the last race was a stark reminder that the points are handed out on Sunday and it doesn't matter how much you are on pole by, if you haven't got race pace you are in for a difficult afternoon. We collected good data from Friday and as far as we can tell, we looked pretty similar to Max on the long runs. The drivers were both happy with the car balance on a long run, but it's still tricky to keep the tyre temperatures in a good window with the track hovering around 50°C. We're under no illusion that tomorrow will be a long and hot race, but we'll work hard tonight on the strategy plans and understanding how to get the most out of the tyres, to put ourselves in the best possible position to turn today's front row into a strong result.

Spanish GP: Qualifying team notes - FerrariCharles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) will start from the fifth and sixth rows of the grid respectively for the 50th Spanish Grand Prix, when it gets underway tomorrow at 15.10 at the Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya circuit, with the Monegasque ninth, two places ahead of his team-mate.



For this Saturday in Montmelo, track temperature was 51 degrees as the cars started the session. Both SF1000s began with Soft tyres and on the first run Charles posted a 1:17.540 and Seb managed a 1:17.900. The track was evolving rapidly as both drivers fitted a new set of the same compound to improve: Vettel to 1:17.037 and Leclerc to 1:17.256, to comfortably move through to Q2.


They then took to the track for the second phase immediately running the Soft tyres, the only possible choice as the times through the field were so close that qualifying on the Mediums would have been impossible for everyone. Charles' first run produced a good 1:16.953, while Sebastian stopped the clocks in 1:17.395. They then pitted for another set of new Softs to try and improve. However, with the track temperature rising steadily, it was not a given and Leclerc was unable to improve, but he had done enough to get to Q3. Sebastian moved up to tenth with a 1:17.168, just 5 thousandths off Alex Albon in the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull). The last car across the line was Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) in the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) whose time was just two thousandths faster than Vettel's thus relegating the Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) man to eleventh place. It might not turn out to be so bad for Sebastian, because elimination in Q2 gives the driver a free tyre choice for the start and ahead of him will be ten drivers on the Soft compound, all of whom could probably suffer after a few laps on the boiling hot track surface.


Charles had a single set of new Softs for the final part of qualifying, but he went out for a first run on used tyres to do a 1:17.297. Then with the new set he improved to 1:17.087, just three thousandths slower than Norris, yet again, to ensure he starts from ninth on the grid for tomorrow's race.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "I am disappointed with our quali result. I was not very happy with the car today. At the beginning of quali it was not too bad but then I had a lot of understeer, which was getting worse and worse after every session and I just could not drive around this issue. We need to look into it and understand how we can fix it, because in the end P9 is disappointing. We were just not fast enough on our quick lap. Tomorrow we will be starting on Softs, which is not the best tyre here, and people behind us will start on Medium and Hard, probably the best strategy, so it won't be easy."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I was very close to making the cut to Q3, as two thousands of a second is a very small gap. I tried everything and for sure it is a shame to be that close and not get through. I've been struggling all weekend to find the right balance. However, we have to look at the positives and with a free choice of tyres for tomorrow, hopefully we can do something different. We have tonight to think about that.


"Overall today, the first sector was ok, but then in the middle one the car started to be more and more nervous, I struggled in particular in turn 7, but also turn 5 was very tricky. The final sector was better, but there too, it wasn't easy to find the right balance. Now we have to study the data in order to find some answers that could be helpful for the race."


Laurent Mekies Sporting Director: "It was a difficult qualifying, with Charles' ninth place and Sebastian's eleventh pretty similar to last week's performance. We were unable to optimise the car performance as the track evolved and we paid a high price for that with our grid positions. If you look at by how little Sebastian missed the cut to Q3 and then Charles' performance in the final part, it's clear that a very small improvement would have delivered a better result.

Having said that, we have to work out why the car balance was far from ideal this afternoon.


"It will be a difficult race tomorrow with high temperatures giving the drivers, cars and tyres a hard time. In fact, tyre management will be one of the key factors, with several strategy options available. It will be up to us to make the best of it. In the last two races, we managed it and we'd like to do the same again tomorrow. Our aim is for both our drivers to finish as high up the order as possible in the points, trying to defend our third place in the Constructors' Championship, which has to be our minimum target for the season."

Spanish GP: Qualifying team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "I think we did a good job in qualifying, extracting everything we could from the car. We know that over one lap we struggle a bit compared to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) but on the long runs it is all closer and we can extract a bit more from our car. It seems like I have a subscription to P3 at the moment as I have been there for the whole weekend but we will try to improve on that tomorrow! I felt very happy on the long runs yesterday, with the balance of the car and the wear of the tyres so I hope that will be the same for tomorrow when it will still be warm but not as warm as today. We will try to stay as close to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) as possible, put pressure on them and hopefully we can have a good fight. I am confident that we can do a good job. It will be hard to beat Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) as they still look very fast but we don't give up."



Alex Albon: "I'm not entirely happy with my qualifying as I wanted more but we can have a good race from P6 and it was an improvement over the last two weekends. Overtaking at this track is very difficult so it was important to qualify further up the field but there's still work to do and I still need to find some more pace on Saturdays. The car felt a bit edgy throughout the session and I actually felt better on used tyres during my first Q3 run compared with the second run, so we'll need to look at that and understand why. Hopefully we can have a good race tomorrow and with the challenge here being overtaking we will also need to use strategy. This weekend there has been a lot of talk about tyre degradation so hopefully we can look after our tyres and bring home some good points for the Team."


Christian Horner, Team Principal: "We can be pleased with today's qualifying efforts from both Max and Alex as track position is key here in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). Max has consistently extracted everything from his RB16 on Saturdays and lines up third on the grid, his best ever start position at this track. Alex meanwhile continues to show signs of progress as he begins to get more comfortable with the car over one lap and starting sixth on the grid gives us plenty of options in the race tomorrow. We will take the momentum from last week's win and try to use it to our advantage tomorrow as we look to keep the pressure on Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and have a good fight with both cars. The high temperatures we've seen today look set to continue and Pirelli have said this will be one of the toughest races this season for the tyres, so hopefully we can give everyone at home a good on-track battle."

Spanish GP: Qualifying team notes - McLarenCarlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "A positive Saturday for the team. I was happy with the car balance and could push the car to the limit, especially in Sectors One and Two. Yesterday we decided to change my engine and that seems to have solved the issues from last weekend, so also happy on that side.



"The lap wasn't perfect though. I lost a bit in Sector Three compared to my best time in that same sector and maybe that would've put us P6 in front of Albon - but in general it was a strong quali. I was feeling good in the first part of the lap, and we'll keep investigating the last sector because I wasn't happy with the rear end. So, let's see what we can do to improve for tomorrow - but overall a more positive day and looking forward to a tough race due to the high temperatures."


Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Not a bad qualifying, but there was still some room for improvement. I was kind of happy all the way through qualifying but just on the final run in Q3 I locked up - just over-pushed a small amount into Turn 10 and locked my fronts - so I lost around a tenth, which could've been a couple of positions. I'm a little bit frustrated about that, but otherwise I'm happy we got into Q3. I think it was very close and we just about did a good enough job to get into Q3 in the first place. We can be very happy about being ahead of both Ferraris as well, who are definitely quicker than us. We should be in for an exciting race tomorrow."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "It's good to have both cars back in Q3. We made some set-up changes to the cars ahead of FP3, and instantly we could see they were more competitive, and this carried through into qualifying. Well done to the entire team, both drivers and our colleagues from Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) for good analysis overnight and good execution this afternoon.


"P7 and P8 are strong starting positions and we're looking forward to a race in which we can fight for good points. It is going to be tough: the competition in the midfield is very close and, with high temperatures expected once again, there will be a lot of degradation. It should be a very interesting Sunday afternoon!"

Spanish GP: Qualifying team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team missed out on a top ten grid slot for tomorrow's Spanish Grand Prix with Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) thirteenth and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) fifteenth in qualifying at the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya.



It was a far from smooth day for the team with Esteban involved in a late incident in Free Practice 3, which brought out a red flag. Esteban made a late attempt to avoid Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) between Turns 3 and 4 and lost control of his Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) R.S.20, and subsequently hit the wall.


A phenomenal sub-two-hour effort from the mechanics meant Esteban was back out for qualifying on time after sustaining damage to the front and rear of his car.


Both drivers progressed through Q1 with Daniel's first run good enough for tenth and Esteban - on his second effort - also through to Q2 in twelfth place.


The battle for Q3 was always going to be extremely tight with Daniel missing out on a top ten shot by 0.03secs in thirteenth. Esteban, like Daniel, improved his lap-time on his second run but was eliminated in fifteenth place.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "It was a shame that it was so close out there and we only have thirteenth place to show for it. When you miss out by such a little margin, it's a shame as it could be the difference between four spots on the grid. It was a clean lap in Q2, but other teams were able to find a little bit more. We have to find a way tomorrow and we'll be pushing as best as we can. It will be hard for overtaking, but we'll try. It's going to be hot, the tyres are going to have a workout and there could be some opportunities on strategy for the race. I'm still optimistic for points."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "On a positive note, the mechanics were incredible. After the unfortunate incident in FP3, the car was badly damaged and, in under two hours, they managed to put it back together. It was a fantastic effort so a big thanks to all of them. Unfortunately, the negative is that we didn't have the pace to get into Q3 today. It's something we need to keep looking at as we know the importance of reaching the top ten. Last week we were fourteenth on the grid and scored points, so I'll give it my best tomorrow to do the same."


Alan Permane, Sporting Director: "It was not a good day and certainly not where we expected to be in qualifying after a strong showing at the last couple of races. We have got a lot of work and thinking to do overnight to try and understand our pace deficit. Having said that, it's a tough race here and it's going to be very hot. We generally manage our tyres quite well in the race, so we're not ruling anything out for tomorrow. As always, we'll be aiming to do everything we can to get both cars in the points."

Spanish GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I think we can be pleased as a team to get another Q3 this weekend, especially because it was a difficult Friday yesterday and I didn't feel so comfortable in the car. We made a good step forward for Quali; I had a good result in Q2 and we decided to keep one more prime tyre for the race. We had only four sets of Softs which meant we had to run with the used tyres at the start of Q2, which wasn't easy, but we made it so I'm quite happy with that. Q3 was very tight and even if at the end I'm happy, inside myself I'm also a bit disappointed because you always feel like you could have done slightly better and maybe get a few more hundredths out of the car. As for the race, it's not going to be an easy one tomorrow, but I hope we can score a few points to catch up from the missed opportunity last week."



Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "This morning I struggled with the car which was not behaving well, so we definitely made good steps going into Qualifying. I'm quite satisfied today as it was a solid session. I think it was a strong lap and P12 is a good position to start the race from, and fight for points starting on fresher tyres. I just hope we'll have good pace tomorrow and that we can make it work so we can finish in the top 10 again."


Guillaume Dezoteux (Head of Vehicle Performance): "We had a productive third practice session, during which we validated the changes we made overnight. Pierre was able to extract good lap times from the package, on a track that was definitely more difficult than yesterday due to the very hot track conditions. Daniil struggled more with the balance of his car, so we had a bit of work to do before qualifying to give him a car that he could feel more comfortable with.


"The qualifying session started well with both cars making it through to Q2 with some margin. Pierre was the last car on track at the end of Q1 and he managed to find space in the traffic jam in the last sector. In Q2, there was huge traffic again in the last sector, but both cars could find a decent window. By going out very late, Pierre had better out lap preparation and still some margin to the chequered flag, and he closed a very strong lap which put him comfortably in Q3. Unfortunately for Daniil, he missed the last qualifying session by 24 milliseconds! This is frustrating, but it was positive that together with his engineers he could make a very good step forward in comparison to FP3. Q3 went pretty well, however, we failed to extract the full potential out of our package. Pierre was driving a solid lap until he had big wheelspin at the exit of Turn 10, overheated his rear tyres, and affected the performance of the car in the entire third sector. We need to understand the reason for this mistake and if we could have done anything to avoid it.


"Nevertheless, we had a pretty strong qualifying today and we are in a good position to fight for points tomorrow. We will review the various strategies overnight and get ready for what should be an interesting fight in the race."

Spanish GP: Qualifying team notes - Racing PointSergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "That was a challenging qualifying, but I'm really happy with P4. It was extremely hot out there and there were changes in wind direction in the final sector throughout the session. We had to be very careful preparing the tyres on the out lap, not pushing too hard because the track was so hot. It was also a physical challenge having missed the last two weekends. The key tomorrow will be getting a strong start, so that we have the track position to make our strategy work. Overtaking will be difficult and tyre management will be a real challenge. I'm very pleased that - once again - we've been able to show the strengths of the car in different conditions and on a different circuit."



Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "That was a hot one! Canadians aren't made for this heat. I prefer the snow! I'm really happy for the team: P4 and P5 is a great result. It was challenging out there with the heat and the strong wind into the final sector. My Q3 lap was good, although I think I lost a tenth into Turn 10 - but I gave it everything and the car was strong today. It's clear that tyre management will be very important in the race, but it's also difficult to overtake here. We're definitely in a great position to fight for good points tomorrow."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "P4 and P5 on the grid is an excellent effort by the team and sets us up nicely for a strong race tomorrow. We've spent the sessions so far making sure that we understand the hot conditions, how to manage the tyres, and especially how to set the car up for Sunday. Hopefully, all that hard work pays off tomorrow and we can be in the fight for a podium finish. Both drivers did a great job and don't forget Checo has only recently recovered from the virus. It was good to see them both equally matched out there."

Grosjean and Magnussen sported two new sets of the Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires for their Q1 qualifying runs.

Magnussen's best lap of 1:17.908, set on his second timed outing, placed him 16th overall - missing the cut to Q2 by one spot. Grosjean similarly improved on his second run on fresh tires, lapping in 1:18.089 - placing 17th overall directly behind his teammate.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) of Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) claimed top spot on the grid for the Spanish Grand Prix, the third pole of the season for the British driver and his 92nd career Formula One pole. His Q3 fast lap of 1:15.584 beat teammate and second-place qualifier Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) by a scant .059 of a second.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "The car just didn't feel the same from this morning, I could feel it coming sadly. It's a shame as I had really wanted to keep the car exactly the same from Friday. We had to change a lot of parts on the car like the engine and so on. The guys had worked until 4 a.m. and I really wanted to give them something good today, but the good front-end that I had has gone. I can't drive with understeer and I didn't have any confidence - it's killing us. We need to analyze and understand what happened."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "It was close in terms of getting through, it wouldn't have taken a lot to get further up and into Q2. We were compromised quite a bit on the out lap of my second run with all the traffic. It was a pretty hectic and slow out lap from a lot of people. The last few corners I was basically stopped on-track, I was just rolling the wheels slightly, it was walking speed. The tires cooled down a lot. The car's been there all weekend though, it was back to normal. I just haven't been able to put together a lap to show it. It's a little bit of a missed opportunity I feel. I was confident coming into qualifying that I'd have a good car, and I felt like I did. Our race pace looks pretty good though, much better than our qualifying pace - which we didn't really get to show this afternoon."


Guenther Steiner: "It was a very disappointing qualifying today, we expected more out of it following yesterday's pace. We lost all our pace - we need to look into that and see where we lost it and why we lost it. The only positive now is that our race pace simulation was good on Friday. Hopefully we can save that one over into Sunday and have a good race. It would have been nice to start a little further ahead, but nevertheless, if the predicted race pace is there, we can hopefully make moves. Everybody's pushing hard so we get some points, hopefully we get a good start and keep out of trouble. We'll just keep on working hard."

George set a 1:18.099, his best time of the session, on his second run. Nicholas meanwhile improved on his final lap of his third run in Q1, posting a 1:18.532.



Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: We have had a tough day today and we need to understand how we could have got more out of the tyres. We made some decent improvements overnight but even so, we struggled more than we expected in FP3 and had to make a few more adjustments going into qualifying. In the circumstances, qualifying went reasonably well and both drivers were able to deliver some good laps. Unfortunately, Nicholas's final lap was hurt a little by traffic in the final chicane, and George's tyre preparation was compromised by the inevitable traffic jam in the last sector. However, the reality is that these things happen during qualifying sessions and the best defence is basic car pace, and we didn't have enough of that today.


We need to work on the overall pace of the FW43 so that we are better positioned going into the next sequence of races. In the meantime, we will prepare for the race tomorrow where we hope to be in a battle with Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo). The long runs on Friday were tough for most and it will be interesting to see people's tyre choices tomorrow.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67703/drivers/66/george-russell): I was pretty pleased with the qualifying session, as we were a long way off our competitors in Free Practice. I was happy with our performance step but nevertheless, we need to understand where our Saturday pace has gone. With these hot track conditions we are struggling to get the tyres in the right window. It's a bit strange as on paper, this circuit should suit us better than the last two weekends at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). We need to look deep into it, understand where our good pace has gone, and rectify it.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): We closed the gap from yesterday after making some sizeable changes, but clearly it still wasn't enough. On my final lap, there was probably another two-and-a-half tenths to find, but it obviously wouldn't have changed my position. We didn't have the potential to get into Q2 as we have shown at previous races with the hot track conditions not suiting our car as much. We now have to focus on the race tomorrow to see what we can salvage.

Spanish GP: Qualifying team notes - PirelliAll the drivers used the soft tyre to get through Q2, meaning that the top 10 is guaranteed to start on this compound tomorrow, almost certainly leading to a two-stop strategy for most.



Track temperatures peaked at nearly 50 degrees today and similarly warm conditions are expected tomorrow, making thermal degradation a factor.


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) qualified P11 and as such will be the first driver to have a free choice of tyres tomorrow: he may choose to do something different.


With two or more stops expected, there's a wide variety of potential strategies. All the stints are interchangeable: so those outside the top 10 could start on a tyre that's not the soft and vary the order in which they use the tyres, depending on how the race pans out.


A one-stop race is going to be marginal on wear, whichever combination of tyres is used, so the best way is definitely a two-stopper for the 66-lap grand prix. The fastest way on paper is two 19-lap stints on the soft compound plus a 28-lap run on the mediums, probably using the medium for the second stint (so soft-medium-soft).

The second-fastest approach would be a three-stopper: three stints on soft of 15 laps each plus 21 laps on the medium - again probably running the medium for the second of those stints (soft-medium-soft-soft). There is always a risk in making several pit stops, so some teams may want to avoid this.


Finally, the third-fastest way at the moment is another two-stopper, and this will come into its own if temperatures are higher or degradation on the soft is a bit more than expected. That is starting on the soft for 16 laps and then doing two 25-lap stints on the medium (soft-medium-medium).


All these strategies are just theoretical of course, as they naturally depend on the individual circumstances of the race and each car - as well as the tyre sets that each driver has available to them.


Mario Isola: "All the drivers concentrated on the soft in qualifying, which was a slight surprise, perhaps because of the established performance gap to the medium and the pace of the frontrunners. This means that we can almost certainly expect two stops during the race tomorrow, and we're unlikely to see much use of the hard, as there's a big gap to the medium too. Key to tomorrow's race in these very warm conditions will be managing wear and degradation on the soft. There's plenty of scope for those starting lower down the grid to try something a bit different, so hopefully we'll see another interesting race tomorrow with lots of variations in strategy."

FORMULA 1 ARAMCO GRAN PREMIO DE ESPAÑA 2020 - Montmeló
Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 16 de agosto de 2020



Nueva victoria de Lewis HAMILTON que ve su 7º título cada vez más cerca. Además, este es su podio número 156, por lo que se convierte en el piloto con más podios en F1 de la historia, por detrás de Michael SCHUMACHER con 155 y Sebastian VETTEL con 120.

Otra sólida carrera de Max VERSTAPPEN que aprovechó la mala salida de Bottas para ponerse tras Hamilton, que controló con comodidad la carrera de inicio a fin.

El podio lo ha completado Valtteri BOTTAS que comentó no saber por qué tuvo una salida tan mala, que lo tendría que analizar. Es el único que podría ponerle complicado el título a Hamilton pero no está dando el nivel que merece su coche.

El cuarto en cruzar la meta fue Checo PÉREZ, pero una sanción de 5 segundos por ignorar las banderas azules hiizo que cediera su puesto a Lance STROLL. Al final, todo ha quedado en casa.

Buena carrera la de Carlos SAINZ, esta vez sin contratiempos en el coche ni en las paradas. Ha realizado algunos buens adelantamientos logrando finalizar en 6ª plaza. En las últimas vueltas intentó recortar por debajo de los 5 segundos su distancia con Checo para quedar por delante tras aplicar la sanción pero perdió demasiado tiempo al ser doblado por Verstappen, quien luego no llegó a doblar a los Racing Point.

Sebastian VETTEL se ha encontrado con una 7ª posición. El muro de Ferrari ha vuelto a mostrar sus carencias a la hora de reaccionar. Vettel pidió tener la posibilidad de ir a una sola parada y el equipo se lo pensó durante varias vueltas. Luego, para sorpresa de Vettel, le dijeron que podía hacerlo como si fuera idea del muro. Si cuando lo preguntó le hubiesen contestado rápido, igual podría haber cuidado algo mejor los neumáticos de cara al final de la carrera. Perdió posición con Carlos y suerte tuvo de no perderla con ALBON, que volvió a tener una carrera bastante gris, sobre todo comparada con la de su compañero.

Ferrari tampoco lo hizo bien con LECLERC, que trompeó cuando su motor se paró de repente al parecer por un fallo eléctrico. Leclerc se desabrochó los cinturones pensando en el abandono pero logró arrancar de nuevo el coche. El problema fue que no pudo fijar bien los cinturones, lo comunicó al equipo pero lo tuvieron dos vueltas fuera. Veremos si la FIA no lo investiga.

Tras Albon cruzaron la meta GASLY y NORRIS, llevándose los últimos puntos en juego. RICCIARDO se quedó a las puertas de llevarse el último punto.

Ha sido una carrera bastante aburrida, en la línea de las que solemos ver aquí.

Ha sido una carrera bastante aburrida, en la línea de las que solemos ver aquí.

Perdona que no te cite el resto del resumen que, como siempre, me ha parecido impecable. Señalar esto porque asi es, cada año es lo mismo y encima este sin aficionados, pues...

La segunda mitad ha estado mas entretenida, con varios trenecitos, las diferentes estrategias, pero con la primera casi me duermo :)

Una pena lo de Leclerc porque precisamente era uno de los que mas estaba animando el cotarro. Lo de Vettel y la relación con Ferrari da bastante penilla, y aun queda mucha temporada, no es agradable de ver. No seria lo mas digno, sin duda, pero una salida temprana acordada igual evitaba dañar mas la imagen de piloto y equipo.

Fantásticos Verstappen y Sainz como de costumbre, muy bien Perez y Stroll, y Gasly de nuevo muy sólido y en los puntos. El AT tira que da gusto.

Veremos qué tal le sienta a los coches rodar en Montmeló en pleno mes de agosto, aunque parece que van a tener algo de suerte y las temperaturas van a bajar algo.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la carrera:

Spanish GP: Race team notes - MercedesLewis scored the 88th victory of his Formula One career, his fourth of the 2020 season and fifth at the Spanish GP. Valtteri recovered from a difficult start to finish P3, scoring his 50th F1 podium.



On lap 23 of the race, the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-AMG Petronas F1 Team reached 25,000 laps raced in F1. Today's result marks Lewis' 156th podium in F1, setting a new record for the most in F1 history.


Lewis (132 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 37 points from Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) (95 points), with Valtteri in P3 (89 points). The Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-AMG Petronas F1 Team (221 points) leads Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing (135 points) by 86 points in the Constructors' Championship.


Mike Sansoni, Senior Performance Engineer, accepted the Constructors' trophy on behalf of the team.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): This feels absolutely incredible. I was just in a daze out there, I didn't even know it was the last lap in the end, that's how in the zone I was. I can't remember the last time I felt like that. It was really special and a real surprise after our recent tyre problems. We brought all of our learnings from the previous weekend into this one and that enabled us to do well today. A fantastic effort from everyone in the team, I'm so grateful for all their hard work and for continuing to push, so a huge thank you to everyone at the factories. I got the perfect start and then it was all about tyre management. It was so hot out there and very demanding, but I was just focused on protecting the tyres and bringing the car home. What an incredible result.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Of course, this is very disappointing, I'm not here to finish third. The start was really the key point for my race - it just wasn't good enough, so I lost a few positions. We'll have to look into what happened, but ultimately the guys behind me got a good tow and were able to overtake me. On a track like this, where overtaking in the race is so difficult and track position is everything, your race becomes very tricky if you lose places. So, I think with a different start the end result would have been very different. In the first stint, I had to push hard to make up ground which worked fairly well. In stint two, I was pretty much right behind Max all the time, but it is so difficult to overtake here, and you need a really big time difference. We had a free pit stop at the end, so I could pit for fresh tyres and got the fastest lap. Overall, it wasn't the race I had hoped for, but sometimes that's just the way it goes. We'll analyse everything from the race and move onto the next one.


Toto Wolff: I'm very happy for the team. To have understood the difficulties from Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), recover from them and come back with a great set-up and fantastic tyre management - that just shows the strengths of this team. A massive well done to all the people at the factories and here at the track for their hard work. Everyone pulled together and overcame what we have seen as our biggest weakness. Lewis was in a league of his own today; he controlled the race very well and did a brilliant job. He managed the tyres extremely well and ultimately his call to go to Mediums for the last stint was the right one. Valtteri unfortunately suffered a tricky start and lost a few places which is a shame, because he had the pace to finish second. The Soft tyre wasn't the best compound to attack Verstappen in the end, so we need to understand why that was the case. But overall, first and third and the extra point for the fastest lap makes for a great recovery after Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and an almost perfect result.


Andrew Shovlin: There's been a lot of work going on in Brackley over the last week to understand what went wrong in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), so it's really satisfying to win here in hot conditions. It's been a challenging weekend given the temperatures. We did good work on Friday and had a clear understanding of how hard life was going to be for the tyres with the track at nearly 50°C, but we didn't know how we'd be on relative pace. That certainly turned out towards the better end of our expectations; Lewis managed for the first ten laps, but when he started to pick up the pace we had a bit of an edge in terms of pace and degradation. He drove a perfect race and managed the tyres brilliantly. Valtteri's day wasn't so straightforward. He lost places off the line and got squeezed into Turn 1 so had to work through a couple of cars early to get back into the fight at the front, all without taking too much out of the tyres. He was able to follow Max closely and we may conclude that there was a small window where we could have gone for an undercut in that middle stint, but Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) covered the situation well. A reminder that they race well and never give us anything for free. Valtteri had the chance for to go for fastest lap at the end on fresh Medium tyres and it was some consolation to see him break the lap record and get the extra Championship point. We're looking forward to a few days back in the UK to prepare for the next triple-header. There are some amazing tracks coming up with Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps), Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) and Mugello and they all present their own unique challenges, so we'll be using this time to understand how to get the best out of the W11 in each of those races.

Spanish GP: Race team notes - FerrariThe 50th Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix was particularly difficult for Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), because apart from a performance level that did not live up to expectations, it also had a reliability problem, which forced Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) to retire. The only positive came from Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) who turned things around after a poor qualifying and managed to go from eleventh on the grid to seventh at the flag, running a two stop strategy that saw him do a 36 lap stint on the Soft tyres.

As the cars lined up on the grid, track temperature was 55 degrees. When the lights went out, Charles lost a place to Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly), but managed to pass Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) thus maintaining ninth place from where he had started. Sebastian did the same, eleventh as they crossed the line for the first time. Both Scuderia drivers did a longer stint than the others, so that by lap 28, they were fifth and sixth. At the pit stops, with both drivers coming in on the next lap, Charles took on Mediums and dropped to 12th, while Seb went from Medium to Soft and was 14th. The aim, at least for the Monegasque was to go to the flag without a further stop.


For a long time, the two SF1000s were in a queue of cars from fourth to thirteenth places, until on lap 37, at turn 13, Charles spun following an electrical problem. He managed to restart the car, but by then he had undone his seatbelts and had to pit to have them retightened. At this point, his race was more or less over, so the team decided to retire him.


After lap 40, the second pit stops started for those drivers who had made the earliest stops and that allowed Sebastian to move up to fifth. With a risk of rain, the team extended his stint to lap 50 as his tyres were still in good condition and the decision was taken to try and go to the flag. At this stage of the race, Sebastian excelled himself, running at a strong pace while looking after the tyres. However, he could do nothing against Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz), both on fresh rubber, but he did manage to fend off Alex Albon in the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) to cross the line in seventh place, with Soft tyres that had done 36 laps. Sebastian became only the second driver ever to score more than 3000 points and today's result was a good morale booster after the two difficult races at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone).


This race concluded the season's second triple-header. The frenetic programme now takes a brief one week break, with the engines firing up again at the end of the month at Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)-Francorchamps, for the Belgian Grand Prix on 30 August.

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "Today we tried something different and it paid off. I was struggling in the first stint, even on medium tyres, while in the second one I felt a lot better, despite having the soft tyre for many laps.


"There was some rain forecast at some stage so we extended our stint on softs. In the end we were in a position in which we had nothing to lose, so we took the risk and decided to try and make it to the end. Luckily it worked and this result reflects the maximum we could do today with the car.


"There is still lots of work to do, but at the moment this is our true pace, that's why sometimes we have to take some risks in order to have more or different options to finish ahead of our competitors."


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "It's a shame that we couldn't finish the race today. I think we had a good chance to finish around P6 or even higher. We were very competitive on the softs and were also quick on the mediums, which we couldn't fully show because of traffic. The plan was for me to do a one-stop and it was going quite well.


"Unfortunately, we had an issue around midrace. Suddenly my screen and engine switched off and the rear wheels locked. We are not yet sure what happened and are investigating the cause. The car eventually started up again, but it was already too late to continue because I had undone my seatbelts and had to return to the pits. Although this year is a little bit tougher than last, we are all motivated to bring home the best results possible for the team and we will keep working hard to achieve this."


Mattia Binotto Team Principal: "A very disappointing weekend, not just because of the result, but also because of the way we managed it. In qualifying yesterday, we didn't make the most of the potential at our disposal and we know how important grid position is on this track where overtaking is so difficult.


"Despite that, in the race we had a genuine chance of fighting for fourth place with Charles, but a reliability problem put him out of the running. A malfunction in an electronic control unit resulted in his car shutting down, causing him to spin, effectively ending his race.


"Sebastian moved up the order well, showing great tenacity and driving very cleanly: doing a 36 lap stint on used Soft tyres is quite something. The same observation goes for him as well as for Charles: starting further up the grid he could have aspired to do better than seventh.


"We have dropped out of third spot in the Constructors' classification, even if by just a few points. We must always get all the potential out of our car if we want to achieve this goal and we must continue to work hard to close the gap to those who today were out of reach for us, namely the only three cars that completed all the laps of this Grand Prix."

Spanish GP: Race team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It's a great result for us to split the two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) cars today after they have been so quick and I'm very happy with that. Overall, it's been another strong weekend with a good amount of points which we should be happy with. I made a good start and it was important to get past Valtteri early, which I did. I tried everything to stay with Lewis in the first stint but overall their car was faster and Lewis was a bit too quick today. From then onwards we focused on our own race and the car felt good. I expected some trouble from Valtteri towards the end when he pitted but I was happy with my tyres and he wasn't catching. Second is of course good but that's not why we are here, we are here to win so you can never be fully satisfied unless you do that. At the moment we're in-between the two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) cars and of course we'd like to push Lewis harder but you have to be realistic as they still have the faster car."




Alex Albon: "It was a hard afternoon and I'm not happy with my race. It was really tricky out there and I just didn't have any grip on any tyre compound. Each stint I was nursing and looking after the tyres but after six or seven laps I just had no grip. It was frustrating and the opposite to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) last week. No matter what we did we just really struggled to keep the tyres alive. It hasn't been an issue this year so we'll need to look at the data and see the reasons behind it because at the moment we just have question marks. I was struggling in sector three mostly, I couldn't stay close enough to cars ahead so I couldn't overtake and I was kind of a sitting duck. Now we need to understand why today was so different to last weekend in the race so we can come back stronger and improve for Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)."


Christian Horner: "Once again Max extracted the absolute maximum from the car today and to split the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), which was the faster race car, it's the best we could have hoped for. After making a good start, using the slipstream and getting ahead of Bottas into Turn One, Max settled into the race and on a two-stop strategy he pushed as hard as he could to keep the pressure on Lewis and stay ahead of Valtteri. For Alex, he made a good start but got boxed in at the first corner behind Valtteri and he then seemed to struggle with degradation on all tyre compounds. P8 was the outcome of that and now we'll need to go through all the information from the race to try and understand what created that degradation on the three compounds of tyre. The mechanics did a standout job once again today with more sub-two second pit stops and now I'm sure they are all ready for a well deserved weekend off before we head to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)."

Spanish GP: Race team notes - McLarenCarlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "A very good day for me and the team. To finally get a good result after the issues of the previous four races feels great and I honestly think we deserve it. We put in a very good fight with the Racing Points and defending from the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) after the pit-stop was key. It's a pity that I got lapped by Max [Verstappen] at the end of the race and lost a couple of seconds, because Checo [Perez] had the time penalty and I think we could've finished in front of him. But anyway, the mechanics did a good job today, with all four pit-stops under three seconds, and we managed to get both cars in the points. This has been a confidence-building weekend for the team and hopefully a turning point in my season."



Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A tough race. We had really good pace in the car but, as usual in Spain, it was very difficult to overtake. You can only really overtake in one corner, and if the car in front gets a good enough exit out of the final corner and there is a train of cars, then it's pretty much impossible even if you are quicker. It's a shame – because the car felt good. It came alive a lot towards the end. It would've been nice to use a little bit more but tenth was, I think, the best we could've done today, so I'm happy to be in the points."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "Finishing P6 and P10 today is a great result at a race we expected to be very challenging. This second triple-header of the season has been tough, and this is a reward for all the hard work the team at the track and back in in Woking, the drivers and Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) have put in over the last few weeks. We've had great reliability so far this year – six races without any issues – which is testament to the great work being done across the team, from design and production, to the build of sub-assemblies and the full car and logistics. We must keep up such performance and reliability.


"Today, the strategy team and the pit-stop crew performed really well. Carlos put in a great drive and maximised everything we had to beat one of the Red Bulls. Lando was unlucky to lose a couple of places at the start, but after that drove with really good pace. We want to use this momentum, keep pushing and further develop the car. It's been another hot, exhausting week and the team have had to get used to working under difficult conditions and covid protocols.


"Now, we'll take the time to recharge, as it isn't long until we head out to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) and start the next triple-header."

Spanish GP: Race team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team left empty-handed from the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya with Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) eleventh and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) thirteenth in a largely uneventful Spanish Grand Prix.



After disappointment in not making Q3 in qualifying yesterday both Daniel and Esteban lined up outside of the top ten and began Sunday's race on identical strategies, starting on the Medium tyre.


Despite a flying start, Daniel remained thirteenth by the end of lap one with Esteban dropping a place to sixteenth.


Both drivers were on a planned one-stop strategy and began gaining positions as those ahead started to pit a third of the way through the race.


Esteban passed Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) and Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) on laps 20 and 28 with two slick overtakes at Turn 1.


The Frenchman pitted on lap 34 for new Soft tyres with Daniel in a lap later for the same compound.


It was a challenging second stint from there on, with blue flags for the leading trio of drivers meaning both Daniel and Esteban struggled to make any inroads towards the points paying positions. Daniel closed to within a second from tenth place and Esteban finished thirteenth.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "It was tough today and certainly not where we want to be. At every race up until now, we've had at least one car in the points, so this is the first one without it. It was a pretty difficult race and making the one-stop work was difficult. Obviously, it's a bit disappointing as we came here expecting much more, especially after two decent races last time out. We didn't expect to have a difficult weekend, but it was very tight out there. We were close to the top ten in qualifying and in the race, so we'll try and find out where we lost those couple of tenths and move on to the next race."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "There wasn't much more we could have done today. As a team, we struggled for pace this weekend. The car didn't behave how we wanted, and we lacked grip and balance. From the beginning of the weekend, we felt the car didn't behave like at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), so we have more work to do in some of those areas. We have a week off to analyse it and come back stronger. I had a couple of fun battles on track today and made a few overtakes, so that's one positive we can draw upon."

Cyril Abiteboul, Team Principal: "We concluded our first weekend of the year without scoring any points. This is not for a lack of effort or execution from the race team and I believe we extracted all we could from the car this weekend. Put simply, the car is not good enough at a track like this one. Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) is a good test when it comes to the aerodynamic efficiency of the car, so it says something about the areas we have to improve. We've made some steps in the winter, but not enough to be on the leading side of the midfield here. It's all very tight; two tenths yesterday in qualifying made a big difference and, again, it was tight today in the race. That's not an excuse, though. We should be at a point where we could be doing better than that. We have a clear area of focus and we will be pushing to accelerate the next upgrades on the car."

Spanish GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It was a great race and I'm happy to get another two points for the team this weekend. We had a good start and I managed to pass Charles and Lando in Turn 1 which put me in eighth position. We got held up a bit in the second stint behind other cars in a train of DRS, so we didn't make full use of the prime tyres, which was a bit of a shame. However, I think there are a lot of positives to take away from Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), which is quite a challenging track in terms of car performance, and it was nice to be in the mix with the McLarens for most of the race. We can be pleased with our result today and now we start focusing on Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps)."



Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "I can't say it was a satisfying race as it was quite frustrating. I wasn't as comfortable in the car as I usually feel on Sundays. We still need to look into the details and try to understand why - maybe our tyre usage wasn't optimal. I was happy with my initial start, I had some nice battles with Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) and Ricciardo, so I thought there was more for me to take today and finish in a better position. I think there are a few things we can learn from this weekend and we should be able to do well in the next races."


Guillaume Dezoteux (Head of Vehicle Performance): "The very hot conditions favoured the two-stop strategy today, although some cars managed to make the one-stop work.


"As for Pierre, the first stint was strong as he managed to keep Leclerc behind and maintained a gap to Sainz. We had to manage the car a bit as the brakes and tyres were on the hot side. We stopped him as soon as we were clear from Grosjean and we tried to use our tyre advantage, as we had two sets of medium tyres available. Unfortunately for Pierre, his entire second stint was in traffic and he got stuck in a train with Albon and Norris. The last stint was very similar, but we thought we could pass Vettel who was losing quite a bit of time as he trying to make the one-stop work. Overall, we bring home some points which reward a strong weekend on Pierre's side of the garage.


"Daniil's race was more complicated. He started to lose ground at the end of his first stint, so we decided to box him for medium tyres. His second stint was okay, but not enough to beat Ricciardo, who was going for the one-stop. In the final part of the race, he was very close but the leaders coming by were forcing him to drop and attack again.


"Obviously, after showing a competitive performance over the entire weekend, we would have preferred to bring home more points, but overall, it's a positive result that confirms we are a strong midfield contender. We will go on working hard to keep the good momentum going and increase our advantage over our direct competitors."

Spanish GP: Race team notes - Racing PointLance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "I had a great launch off the line and I was able to pass Checo and the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) of Bottas, which set me up for a good race. It was a great feeling to race a few laps in third, even if we knew we weren't racing the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) - P4 was the maximum today. It was good to battle with Checo on track for a bit too, even if it probably gave Otmar a few more grey hairs! We changed to a two-stop in the race, but I was able to make up places, and I managed to overtake Vettel late on, and I gained a place through Checo's penalty too. Today was all about managing the tyres, which was difficult in the heat - but we made it work. The dark clouds arriving late in the race were a nice relief from the sun! The team did a great job today and I'm happy we scored some big points. I'm excited to get to Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) now because the track should suit our car and we can aim for more points."



Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I had a difficult start today and lost a place to Lance, but we were able to recover and have a strong race. I think it was on the edge to make a one-stop work, but we managed to do it, which took a lot of tyre management, and great work from the team to make it happen. It was also fun to battle Lance, but the priority was to save the tyres. I'm disappointed to have got a five seconds time penalty: I don't think it was fair considering the first opportunity I had to get out of Lewis's way was into Turn 1. But the main thing is that we were able to hold onto P5, and we scored a lot of points for the team today. It's been a positive comeback for me and I want to thank the team for their help in getting me back up to speed so quickly."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Fourth and fifth place is a deserved result and there's no doubt we maximised the points that were available to us. It was difficult to fight the top three on pure pace, but converting our qualifying positions into race results feels very satisfying - especially with split strategies. Lance made his usual strong start off the grid and then both cars ran in close company for most of the race. Lance maintained his advantage over Sergio during the first pit stops, until we switched him to a two-stop race, while Sergio tried to make the one-stop strategy work. Sergio's race was compromised by the five seconds penalty for blue flags, but in the end it didn't cost the team points because Lance finished just ahead of him. The team called the race very well today and, in the end, there was little to choose between those two different strategies. The 22 points scored - our best result of the season - take us into third place in the championship."

Spanish GP: Race team notes - HaasHaas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) classified P15 and P19 respectively at the Spanish Grand Prix, held at the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) - Catalunya on Sunday.




Magnussen started the 66-lap encounter, held in hot weather, from P16 on the grid on Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires, rising to P14, as the Dane typically flexed his muscles on the opening lap. Magnussen gradually rose to as high as P9 as the pit stop phase cycled through and when he came in on lap 29 for medium tires he filtered back in P19. Magnussen preserved his delicate tires and managed a one-stop strategy through to the checkered flag, beating Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo)'s Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) by under a second to take P15.


Grosjean adopted a different strategy and began the race on medium tires and rose to P15 by the time he exchanged that compound for fresh soft tires at mid-distance. Grosjean attempted to maintain those tires for the remainder of the race but a moment at Turn 7 with a few laps to go prompted a second stop. The mechanics serviced Grosjean's VF-20 for a second time and he took on softs to complete the race in P19.


Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team maintains ninth position in the Constructors' Championship with one point.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "From lap one to the last lap, it wasn't good. The car was a handful. I just can't understand what has happened since Friday. Our long runs, short runs, everything was fast and competitive on Friday - everything was under control. I can't explain why it was so good then, and not the rest of the weekend. It was just not fun today. It was a tough day at the office."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "I think we did everything we could today. On our side, I think we just missed some pace, which is of course a very crucial thing. In terms of driving the race, and strategy, everything we thought we needed to do before the race - we did. We made a one-stop work, got a good start, I overtook when I needed to, got the balance right in the car, and all the communication from the team to me went well. It felt like a good race, it's just that the result isn't so good. It's just down to pace, I guess. Other than that, we did the best that we could."


Guenther Steiner: "It wasn't the result we wanted to have. It's just always trying to execute, do something to find some magic - but the magic didn't work today. This is where we are at for now. In Belgium we will see what the change in the engine modes does. I don't want to jump too much for joy, as I want to see first how it works out and what it does. I don't think everything is the engine, I think we've got work to do on the car as well. It's difficult for us this year in the circumstances we're in. The positives, our drivers drove hard today - they did the best they could. Everybody worked hard to get the best out of our package, this is the best we can do at the moment."

Spanish GP: Race team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67721/drivers/66/george-russell) finished 17th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 18th in the Spanish Grand Prix. George started the race 18th on the soft compound tyre, with Nicholas lining up 19th on the medium. George pitted twice, stopping on laps 19 and 35, taking on new sets of the medium tyre on both occasions. Nicholas also ran a two-stop strategy, pitting for the medium tyre on lap 28 before taking a set of the soft tyres on lap 49.



Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Today was another tricky day at the end of three weeks of racing. Our performance was better than on Friday, showing that we understood some of the issues we had and that we made some good improvements to the car ahead of qualifying. The tyres remained a little difficult, but it made for some interesting racing, with a variety of strategies attempted across the field.

We enjoyed racing with Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo), and although we couldn't beat them today, we were much closer than we feared after Friday, which is an encouraging sign. We ran slightly different strategies on our two cars with Nicholas starting on the Medium and finishing with a short stint on the Soft. George ran the opposite tyre order, with a short middle stint on Medium as we looked to cover the cars that had pitted behind us. As ever, both drivers did well with the car that we were able to give them today, including some good overtakes from George.


Coming back to Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) at a different time of year has given us a good opportunity to evaluate the car performance in different conditions and has helped our understanding of the tyres at this circuit. We now have a short break before we embark on the third of the triple-headers, which begins at the iconic Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) circuit in two weeks' time.

George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67721/drivers/66/george-russell): The race was better than expected. I made a good start, overtook a couple of drivers and then spent the whole afternoon battling. I managed to overtake Romain (Grosjean) on track which was nice, then I had a nice little tussle with Kimi (Raikkonen). We used an alternative strategy to our main rivals and it didn't pay off, but we had to in our position. There are definitely positives to take away, so I'm relatively pleased with this afternoon.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It was quite tricky. I got a good start but then struggled on the opening lap. For the first five or six laps I had no confidence and it undid my race in that first stint. We tried to do something alternative strategy wise, but it didn't end up working out. My second and third stints pace wise were relatively not so bad but I think that's all we could manage after the opening stint.

Spanish GP: Race team notes - PirelliMercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) won in Spain from pole with a two-stop soft-medium-medium tyre strategy: the same as Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) in second at the end. However, Verstappen stopped a few laps before Hamilton on each occasion.



The other Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) of Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) finished third, also starting on the soft before moving onto the medium, but the Finn stopped twice again: for the soft tyre and then for the medium, making his third and final stop with two laps to go. He took the extra championship point for fastest lap.


While the majority of drivers completed two stops, some did just one: with Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point)'s Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) in fifth starting on soft and switching to medium, while Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) started on medium from P11 on the grid and then did an exceptionally long final stint on the soft to secure seventh.


McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)'s Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) finished sixth with a soft-soft-medium strategy (the only driver to do so) while Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Alex Albon was eighth with another unique strategy: soft-hard-medium. Albon was the only driver to use the hard throughout the race.


As a result, there were seven different strategies seen in the top eight.


The overall race time in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona) was nearly 10 minutes faster than 2014: the first year of the hybrid turbo era. That translates into an average lap time that is more than eight seconds per lap faster: a rate of development that the tyres have been able to constantly keep pace with.


Mario Isola: "Managing the tyres in these demanding conditions with nearly 50 degrees of track temperatures was a big challenge, especially on the soft tyre. Nonetheless, we saw stints of more than 30 laps on them, which was extremely impressive, leading to some one-stop strategies that we didn't expect. In particular, Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point)'s Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) was fifth with soft-medium one-stopper, while Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) also stopped once with a brave strategy, going from medium to soft. Despite the hottest temperatures that many of the drivers have ever raced and a wide range of demands, the tyres stood up extremely well to the challenge."
