The Formula One go back to a Circuit de Barcelona-Catalonia what will receive 1,000 viewers with the presence of two Spanish pilots, Fernando Alonso (Alpine) and Carlos Sainz (Ferrari), something that had not happened since the 2018 season, when precisely the Asturian and Madrid also coincided.
The drivers on the grid will begin this Friday to prepare for Sunday’s race in the first free practice of the weekend. The great favorite to win the Spanish Grand Prix is once again the English Lewis hamilton (Mercedes), winner in the last four visits, and who won two of the first three races of the course, Bahrain and Portugal, which allows lead the standings with 69 points.
But this year the fight for the top positions is more even than in other years, and Hamilton, winner of six of the last seven championships, will have a more difficult time getting his fifth consecutive title. Mostly because of Max verstappen (Red Bull), precisely the last to win at Montmeló before Hamilton’s four consecutive victories. The Dutch driver is second in the World Championship standings, with 61 points, after his triumph in Imola and his second places in Sakhir and Portimao.
