    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.

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    ¡Muchas gracias, McH!


    Las carreras aquí suelen ser bastante aburridas así que al menos esperemos ver la confirmación del buen ritmo del Alpine y el aumento de confianza/rendimento de Fernando.

    A ver si Carlos también tiene un buen fin de semana aquí, él y el estratega de Ferrari, claro.

    Lo que más me alienta a mi, para tragarme este GP que suele ser un tanto anodino, es el poder comprobar qué equipos están en posición de dar batalla en este campeonato.

    Si bien es cierto que aquí las carreras suelen ser un tanto aburridas, no es menos cierto que la pista es de lo más exigente en cuanto a las prestaciones de los coches, los que aquí vayan bien, irán bien generalmente durante el resto del año, y los que demuesten carencias, las seguirán arrastrando durante lo que quede de año, ya que aunque se puedan intentar corregir con posibles "upgrades", los demás tampoco perderán comba y también mejorarán.

    Este año no hemos visto a nadie probando en este trazado ... y este es el GP "pitoniso" del año.

    Yo es un GP que en los últimos años me suelo ver repetido, para poder darle al "fast forward". Me pasa tambien con el de Monaco. Con la importancia que pueda tener uno, por ser el de aqui, y el otro, por lo mitico, suelen ser una completa castaña. Las clasificaciones suelen ser mas divertidas.

    Resulta tan "doloroso" como "penoso" , ver cómo el pasado año solo los tres del podio acabaron en la misma vuelta , el cuarto ya fué doblado, lo que significa que acabó a más de minuto y veinte segundos ...

    Ups, ya tenemos las primeras Previas de los equipos aquí:

    Spanish GP: Preview - McLaren

    Lando Norris: "I'm excited to go to Spain! We seem to be on good form at the moment, so we're just trying to keep that up, keep scoring points and things like that. It's still early days in the championship, so another weekend like Portugal would be nice. We need to keep plugging away, keep trying to get some points and another good result in qualifying. We'll see what we can do and what the car's like, but I'm confident we can execute a good race."

    Daniel Ricciardo
    :
    "I'm really looking forward to getting back on track in Spain. Having been to two unique circuits in Imola and Portimão, it'll be good to get some laps in on a circuit I know really well. All the teams do so much testing at Barcelona, so we pretty much know what to expect right out of the box. Having so much familiarity with the circuit and the high levels of grip should mean I can really push the car and not have too many other factors to worry about. I'm feeling more and more comfortable with every race distance, so I'm really excited to see what we can do in the next few races."


    Andreas Seidl, Team Principal:
    "After a great recovery from a tricky Saturday in Portimão, we head into the Spanish Grand Prix aiming to have a slightly smoother weekend. Any double-header comes with logistical challenges, and the team at both the factory and the track have done an excellent job making sure we're well prepared to go racing again so soon after Portugal.

    "As always, qualifying is an important part of the weekend, but particularly so at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, where overtaking can be difficult. We've made a strong start to the season but we know we mustn't get complacent, especially when we see how close the competition is. Lando has had a great start to the season and remains in good form, while Daniel is really starting to show his confidence in the car, with last Sunday's battle back into the points proving the progress he's making. We're looking forward to seeing what he can do when he's totally comfortable.

    "Another weekend, another chance to score some good points. Let's go racing!"

    Spanish GP: Preview - Alpine

    The team enjoyed a successful Portuguese Grand Prix weekend with both cars inside the points. Attention turns to Barcelona for this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix, as Executive Director Marcin Budkowski explains the team's development plan.

    What makes the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya an interesting Formula 1 track?

    Marcin Budkowski: Barcelona is the usual benchmark circuit in Formula 1, its combination of low, medium and high-speed corners means it highlights pretty well a car's strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, Formula 1 pre-season testing happened on this track for many years, so the drivers know it particularly well. Even if the conditions can be quite different between winter testing and May, when we usually race in Barcelona, it's one of those circuits where teams and drivers are so prepared that there aren't usually too many surprises. It will be interesting to see if this is any different this year given we all arrive here less prepared than usual.


    What upgrades are planned for this race and beyond?

    MB: We have small things coming through on the back of some successful testing in Portimao, where we improved a few specific areas of the car. There's more to come and, in general, we'll continue to bring performance improvements to the car for the next few races, before we switch entirely our focus to 2022.


    How does the team look back on the Portuguese Grand Prix and what's the confidence level heading to Spain?

    MB: On the back of a strong race in which we showed good pace and achieved a double points result, we want to build on this good momentum. Barcelona, historically, hasn't been one of our strongest tracks, but neither was Portugal last year, so we will aim to confirm our progress by putting both cars in Q3 and scoring more points.


    Esteban Ocon made it two points finishes in a row following his smooth seventh place finish in Portugal. The Frenchman was in determined form with a series of overtakes helping him on his way, as he looks ahead to this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix.


    What is the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya like to drive?

    Esteban Ocon: Barcelona is a challenging circuit but one we know very well. It's been the location for testing for many years, especially during my Formula 1 career, so it's a place where I've completed many laps. Sector 1 and Sector 2 are fast and challenging with the tyres getting very hot in the long corners at Turns 3 and 9. The final sector is tricky as it's slow-speed and by that point on the lap you tend to lose a bit of grip. There's a slight change to the circuit this year at Turn 10, which looks to sweep a little bit more than before. I look forward to taking it on for the first time on Friday.


    How do you reflect on the Portuguese Grand Prix?

    EO: It was an entertaining race at the wheel with some hard and fair racing throughout. We left Portugal feeling very satisfied with our efforts. We turned a solid Friday into a really good Saturday and qualifying in sixth was a great feeling. The race result shows the progress we've made so far this season, but it also shows that we have more to do and more to find. It was great to fight with Ferrari and McLaren, but we must aim to do that consistently and, of course, beat them. Let's see what we can do this weekend. It will be interesting to see how the car performs at this circuit.


    Fernando Alonso returns to home soil for this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix, his first time back in Formula 1 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya since 2018.


    It's your first-time back racing in Spain for two years, are you looking forward to it?

    Fernando Alonso: I am excited to be back racing in Spain. It's always special racing in your home country and I have good memories here in Barcelona. It's a circuit all of us drivers know well, as we normally do our pre-season test here as well as racing the Grand Prix during the season. It's a challenging circuit with a lot of high speed corners. The race is also back to back with Portugal, so it's nice to keep the momentum going. It's traditionally quite a difficult circuit to overtake on, so qualifying will be very important. We'll see where we are during the weekend and target a positive weekend with some more points on the board.


    It was another points finish for you last time out in Portimao, what are your takeaways from the weekend?

    FA: Overall, it was a good weekend for us. The car performed better than in the previous two rounds, and I felt comfortable from Friday onwards. Unfortunately qualifying didn't go as planned for me, but we made up for it with a very strong race and I enjoyed fighting inside the top ten with our rivals. Had we started higher on the grid; we could have scored even more points on Sunday. We want to carry this form into Spain.


    Unfortunately, there are no fans in the grandstands this weekend, how much will you miss them here?

    FA: It's a real shame to be racing here with no fans in the grandstands. Formula 1 with fans is very special, but even more so when it's your home fans. I remember how supportive and passionate the Spanish fans have been in the past, so we will miss this over the weekend. You race to feel the emotion from the support of your fans. Hopefully the fans can return to races soon but in the meantime, we can put on a good show for them watching at home.

    Spanish GP: Preview - Aston Martin

    Lap after lap, session after session; few - if any - Grand Prix circuits have played host to more Formula One laps than the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. The Spanish venue has become the traditional home of pre-season testing for a reason: it unstintingly challenges both the mechanical and aerodynamic aspects of a modern racing car. As such, it can be an important barometer for performance across the remainder of the year.

    Lance Stroll: "Portugal wasn't a great weekend for us - but we got plenty of track running and learned more about the development of the AMR21. We've seen how critical it is to extract the maximum from the car - especially in the tight and unpredictable midfield pack - we'll be aiming for points again this weekend."


    Sebastian Vettel: "This weekend, I'll have the upgrade Lance used in Portugal - which he felt was promising - so I'm looking forward to experiencing it for myself. Looking at the last race, it's clear that we have better race pace than single-lap performance, so we'll be looking to make improvements on Saturday to give us the best chance of points on Sunday. We all know Sunday afternoons at Barcelona can be tricky for overtaking, so it's important that we maximise our opportunities where we can."


    After two races on circuits with limited historical data to rely on, the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is a return to the familiar - but there are still challenges ahead. Our strategy engineers have analysed historic data and recent car performance to predict the key factors that could determine the result on Sunday, presented in partnership with Title Partner Cognizant.


    • Strategy: There's gains to be made with some quick thinking on the pitwall. A pitstop takes roughly 23 seconds, which is quicker than Imola or Portimão, meaning multiple stops are viable. Last year, only five drivers made it to the finish with one pitstop, so expect to see a mix of strategies - especially as Pirelli has brought its hardest and most durable range: C1, C2 and C3.


    • There's usually plenty of action at the start thanks to the 645-metre run down from pole to the fourth-gear Turn One. It's the third-longest drive into the first corner on the calendar - behind Russia and Mexico. But it's still tricky for overtaking: 90% of all overtakes completed after lap two (28) in the 2020 race took place at the first four corners of the circuit, boosted by the 800m DRS zone along the main straight.


    • During the winter, some minor re-profiling work was done to Turn 10. The revised section has an increased corner radius - largely returning it to the original layout used until 2004. There was just one overtake at this corner in the 2020 race; but with cornering speeds of around 100km/h (62mph) expected at the now-third-gear turn, it's less likely to offer up opportunities for passing.


    • While there were no Safety Cars in the 2020 Grand Prix, historically the chances of a mid-race interruption are common. 60% of all Spanish Grands Prix in Barcelona have featured the Safety Car, and 40% of the last five Grands Prix in have included at least one Virtual Safety Car period.


    Unlocking the Lap - with SentinelOne



    A lap of the circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya tests all aspects of a Formula One car. From the high-speed first sector to the tight and technical final sector, the Spanish Grand Prix circuit is a blend of the characteristics of Silverstone and the Hungaroring in a unique challenge. Our official Cyber Security Partner SentinelOne presents the key technical facts and stats behind a single lap of the track.


    The 1.1km main straight, where cars reach speeds of 300km/h (186mph), offers a good opportunity for slipstreaming, but the medium-speed Turn One right-hander makes it hard to out-brake a rival into the corner. Drivers immediately barrel into the right of Turn Two and the long, uphill Turn Three. With its slight elevation, a well-balanced car is critical here.


    Drivers keep it pinned to the left of the straight to maximise the tricky Turns Four and Five. After the long right-hand bend, the track moves downhill and challenges drivers to find the blind braking point, while averaging around 160km/h (100mph) before braking hard into Turn Five.


    Turns Seven and Eight are another tricky combination - the outside kerb is notoriously tricky, especially in low-grip conditions. A good exit sets the drivers up for the climb to Turn Nine, where smoothly cresting the exit kerb is vital for the 300km/h (186mph) straight down to the now-revised Turn 10 hairpin. With the aid of DRS, the run to Turn 10 is a potential overtaking spot.


    Reaching speeds as low as 80km/h (50mph), this corner tests brakes, and it begins the low-speed and technical final sector. A short burst into Turn 11 means drivers can take this flat - if they're brave on the kerbs.

    Spanish GP: Preview - Red Bull

    Looking back at the Portuguese GP, how do you reflect on the race weekend and what positives do you take heading to Spain?

    Sergio Perez: Of course I expected better things, however I prefer to see the glass half full and I'm happy with the progress we have made in terms of adapting to the car.

    Imola and Portugal were very complicated races, but I learned a lot. We were running at the same pace as the leader group, and we scored some good points, this can only get better.


    The championship fight with Mercedes is so close right now. How does that change the atmosphere in the team, specially into the race weekend?

    SP: I've been here for a short time, but since I got here the atmosphere has been the same, everyone in the Team is working towards the same goal: winning races and aiming to the championship.

    It is something completely different from what I'm used to and the motivation is really high. I'm very happy to be here and to be part of this effort, I'm pretty sure I won't let this Team down.


    We are starting to build a picture of tracks that might suit our car better versus others. Do you think Barcelona will be a good opportunity for us or does it not play to our strengths?

    SP: I think we should be in the fight right from the start. It is a very particular track, with very slow corners and then three and nine are high speed corners, so the key here is to find the right balance and to take care of the right side tyres. The wind is also something to consider. It's a very tricky circuit, but as I said, we should be competitive from the beginning and fight for the win.


    Barcelona is a track all teams and drivers know very well unlike the last two races which have been at new circuits such as Imola and Portimao. Is this a good thing and do you enjoy the track?

    SP: Yes it is a special place, in 2011 I scored my first points in F1 and who knows, maybe could be the place for my first podium with Red Bull. It's a track where qualifying is very important so I'm pretty sure we are ready for this challenge. This year we didn't have our usual winter testing and last year the track conditions were different from the ones we usually have in May. I'm really intrigued about what the RB16B can do there. Last year this was the first race I drove after I had covid and I had a good result, so yes, it is a track I enjoy driving.


    As the races are coming thick and fast now, how do you reflect on one race and prepare for another in such close succession to each other?

    SP: It is exactly when the work we made in the off-season kicks in. This year I prepared myself like never before, so I think it is a matter of being ready mentally, especially after not the best result. It's important to turn the page quickly and be ready to get back to work.


    We had triple headers last year and that of course was very demanding, however the double and triple headers are harder for the Team in the garage, and I always feel bad for them, because they have to spend so much time away from their families. But we are pros and we will be ready for sure.


    Barcelona marks your 100th GP with Red Bull Racing. How does it feel being part of this Team?

    Max Verstappen: Getting to 100 races with Red Bull has gone so quickly to be honest, I didn't know it had been that many! I must be getting old (laughs). I enjoy being part of the Team for as long as I have. The atmosphere in the whole Team is great and there is a lot of motivation and energy here from everyone. We have a really good working relationship but also besides that, off track we also get on very well and have a lot of fun so it's very nice for me to be part of the Team and hopefully of course for a lot more years.


    Barcelona holds some special memories from your first F1 win, what do you remember from that day?

    MV: Barcelona will always hold special memories for me. Your first F1 win is pretty emotional, especially when it is a bit of a shock to everyone as it was my debut for the Team. I don't really get emotional that often but I was pretty close to tears that day and so was my Dad. Everything flashes through your head of how you got to Formula One. It wasn't all easy and people think that when you are winning it looks pretty easy but you have to do the hard work to get there. Like all young drivers we spent a lot of time away from home, driving around Europe and working as hard as possible. Of course, I had a big help from my Dad who prepared me very well but there is no guarantee you will make it to Formula One but as a family that was always the goal. Suddenly, after the win, it all flashes through your head and it was an incredible day. I've said it many times, my first win was a shock, nobody expected it, so it will be a day I will never forget. I'm very grateful to everyone who worked with me and got to that point at such a young age.


    We now have a bit of a picture of tracks that may suit us and other teams, what do you think Barcelona will have in store after a challenging Portuguese GP?

    MV: I think it can be a good track for us, but I do expect Mercedes to be very quick too so it's going to be very close again and it's just going to depend on who finds the best set-up. We know Barcelona is a normal track in terms of grip levels, unlike Portugal, so there we can see the real pace of the cars again.


    Barcelona is a really good track and we all know it very well. I've been there in the beginning of the year in a GT car driving with my Dad and enjoying the track so it will be good to go back. We are in a development race with Mercedes and we have to make sure we can keep this level for the rest of the season and keep improving every weekend. Even if you win there are still so many things you can learn from a race weekend as nothing is ever perfect and we are looking at every aspect to stay in the fight.


    Max will make his 100th start for Red Bull Racing this weekend, becoming the fourth driver in the Team's history to reach that milestone after Mark Webber (129), Sebastian Vettel (113) and Daniel Ricciardo (100).


    Max's 2016 Spanish GP performance was one for the ages. His victory that day simultaneously established records for youngest race leader, youngest podium finisher and youngest winner (all at age 18 years 228 days). He was also the first driver to win on a mid-season debut for any team since Juan-Manuel Fangio for Mercedes at the 1954 French GP.


    Red Bull have 83 points after the opening three races of the year, the team's best start since 2011 and including 2012 and 2013, in which Red Bull were the Constructors' World Champions.


    Max entered the record books in last weekend's Portuguese Grand Prix as he joined Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas on the podium for the 15th time, making them the most commonly recurring podium trio in Formula One history.

    Si los neumáticos delanteros ya sufren de por sí en esta pista, recordemos que es un circuito 'front tyre limited', con el cambio, creo que un poco más.

    Spanish GP: Preview - Mercedes

    Toto Wolff: Back-to-back events bring some added intensity to the calendar, and they also mean we don't have to wait long for the next dose of track action. That's an exciting prospect after another close race last weekend in Portugal.We left Portimao with a strong double-podium and some important learnings to take forward, especially as a one-two finish was in reach without the sensor problem for Valtteri in the late stages. There's plenty of work still to do and the pecking order looks set to change from track to track, so we know we need to be on the top of our game each weekend.

    It's going to be a neck and neck fight with Red Bull through the entire season and we're excited for that battle to continue in just a few days' time in Spain.


    Usually, we'd have already spent some time in Barcelona for winter testing, but that wasn't the case this year. So, we're looking forward to being back at the track and seeing how we fare.


    The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is a proper all-rounder, with a mix of corner types and straights, making it a true test for the car. It's a circuit where managing the rear tyres is key to strong performance, and that hasn't been our biggest strength so far this season. There have also been a few modifications to the layout for this year. So, we're intrigued to see how W12 performs there.


    Fact File

    The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya features a wide range of corner types and speeds. Slow corners such as Turns 14 and 15 test mechanical grip, while the high-speed Turns 3 and 9 put aerodynamic grip to the test. This is what makes the circuit ideal for testing an F1 car.


    Most of the low-speed corners at the Spanish GP venue are left-handers, while all of the high-speed corners are right-handers. So, slightly different set-ups are used on the left and right-hand sides of the car to accommodate this. Meanwhile, the left tyres wear out quicker and the right tyres experience lower temperatures.


    Overtaking is particularly tricky in Spain - the 2020 event produced just six normal overtakes, while 25 were DRS-assisted. The only long straight is entered via a high-speed turn and it is tough to follow a car through there, as the car in front produces "dirty air". The end of the straight is also not ideal for overtaking, as Turn 1 doesn't require much braking energy.


    The modifications made to Turn 10 for the 2021 Spanish Grand Prix will make it harder to overtake here, too, as the reprofiled corner has a shorter braking zone.


    The changes to Turn 10 mean it now has a wider apex and exit. So, it'll be taken at a higher speed in 2021 - we still expect the corner to be taken in third gear, but the speed will increase from 85 km/h to around 110 km/h with the new layout.


    The tarmac at the reprofiled Turn 10 is new and much darker than the rest of the track, which means the grip here will be different, and therefore will influence the balance. It will also hold water for longer if it rains, compared to the rest of the track.


    However, regarding the balance with the new tarmac, a compromise will have to be found that also suits the rest of the circuit. So, getting this corner right will likely rely more on the drivers changing their approach and using set-up tweaks at their disposal like brake balance and DIF settings to help the car balance.


    One of the most unique corners on the track is Turn 5, because drivers tackle the corner differently in Qualifying and the race. The camber of the road drops at the apex, unloading the inside-front tyre and increasing the risk of a lock-up. Drivers will take this riskier, tighter line in Qualifying as it is a shorter distance. But, on a race stint, locking up can cause vibrations and risk additional pit stops, so drivers often take the wider line to keep the load off the inside-front and reduce the risk of locking up.


    Car balance in Spain can often be influenced by the wind, as it sometimes changes direction during the day. There is usually a tailwind on the main straight in the morning, producing a headwind into the high-speed corners. This provides good car stability. But the wind tends to rotate to the opposite direction later in the day, which gives drivers a tailwind into the fast corners and makes the balance trickier.


    In terms of gaining lap time, sector three is the most important, as the drivers can find the most time in the low-speed corners. This means it is rare for a driver to set three purple sectors in Barcelona, because maximising grip and being quick in sector one will overheat the tyres by the time the drivers reach the crucial third sector.


    22 of the 30 races that have taken place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya have been won from pole position - which proves just how crucial Qualifying is at the Spanish GP.


    Barcelona has one of the lowest maximum speeds on the 2021 F1 calendar, with cars reaching just 322 km/h on the main straight due to its high-downforce nature, compared to Mexico, which has the highest maximum speed of 350 km/h.


    Barcelona has the fourth-longest run from pole position to the first braking zone, with 579 metres before drivers hit the brakes for the opening sequence of corners.


    The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya has the sixth-highest average track temperature in F1 at 40°C (calculated by a five-year mean). There are two main factors for this: The track surface in Barcelona is very absorbent to heat, but the solar radiation (electromagnetic radiation emitted by the sun) is also particularly high in Barcelona, so the track temperature increases quickly when there is no cloud cover.


    Barcelona didn't host pre-season testing in 2021, the first time this has happened in many years. But the track is well-understood by the drivers and engineers, so we don't expect any additional unknowns for the race - and winter testing usually takes place in very different ambient conditions to the race, anyway.

    Spanish GP: Preview - Ferrari

    Just one week on from the Portuguese Grand Prix, on a track that has only hosted two Formula 1 races, the World Championship now moves to the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit in Montmelo, 25 kilometres from the Catalan capital, which has featured on the calendar every year since 1991. It also used to be the usual venue for pre-season testing, but this year, because of the pandemic, that was moved to Bahrain.

    The track layout, featuring high, medium and low speed corners, direction changes, undulations and a long start-finish straight, is a demanding test-bench of a car's abilities. It is also one of the most difficult tracks for overtaking. Being close to the coast means that changes in wind direction are one of the factors to deal with, because it has a significant impact on the balance of the cars that run in a medium-high downforce configuration. There are two DRS zones, one on the main straight leading to the first chicane and another after turn 9 on the back straight that leads to turn 10, where it will make less of a difference under braking, but it will not be impossible to try a textbook overtaking move around the outside, relying on entry speed going into the turn. During the winter, major changes were actually made to turn 10, a very heavy braking point where it was easy to lock up the wheels and which now looks more like its original version. The radius is less tight, allowing for a higher speed through the turn.


    The Spanish Grand Prix is the home race for Carlos Sainz, who has always finished in the points in his six races at Montmelo. His best results so far are two sixth places, one last year and one in 2016, during his second season in Formula 1. As for Charles Leclerc, he finished fifth here in 2019 in the Ferrari SF90.


    Ferrari Stats Spanish GP

    GP entered: 50
    Debut: 1951 (J.F. Gonzalez 2nd; A. Ascari 4th; P. Taruffi ret.; L. Villoresi ret.)
    Wins 12 (24%)
    Pole positions 13 (26%)
    Fastest laps 14 (28%)
    Total podiums 38 (25.33%)


    Spanish Grand Prix: facts & figures



    1. The number of Formula 1 World Championship Grands Prix that saw a woman driver finish in the points. It was the Spanish GP of 1975, held at Barcelona's street circuit, Montjuic. Jochen Mass won and Maria Grazia "Lella" Lombardi finished sixth at the wheel of a March. However, the race was red flagged after 29 laps, when race leader Rolf Stommelen crashed, leading to the death of two journalists, a spectator and a track marshal. This meant only half points were awarded, so that Lombardi only picked up one half point.


    5. The furthest back on the grid from which the race has been won at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit. The only driver to win off the third row was Fernando Alonso in 2013 at the wheel of a Ferrari F138. Two drivers made it to the podium from as far back as 12th on the grid: Olivier Panis in 1997 and Juan Pablo Montoya in 2001.


    13. The number of seasons, since testing restrictions were introduced in 2007, that the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit has been used for winter pre-season testing. It means that the Spanish track holds very few secrets for drivers and teams. Over the past 15 years, the Montmelo track has not beenthe test venue only twice, in 2014 and 2021. On both occasions the sessions were held at Bahrain's Sakhir circuit.


    31. The average number of overtaking moves in the Spanish Grands Prix held at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit. Some races have been truly spectacular, such as the opening one run in the wet in 1991, which featured no fewer than 61 passing moves, while in 2011 there were 60 and in 2013, 50. On the other hand, some years were a veritable drought in this respect, in 2005 and then in 2008 when Kimi Räikkönen won in a Ferrari F2008, there were just two. Then there were three in 2000 and in 2002, when Michael Schumacher won in the Ferrari F2002.


    57. The number of Formula 1 World Championship races held in Spain, taking into account the seven editions of the European Grand Prix, five of which were held on the Valencia street circuit and two at Jerez de la Frontera. Only seven countries have hosted more: Italy (101), Germany (79), Great Britain (75), United States (70), Monaco (66), Belgium (65) and France (60).
