The Circuit De Catalunya in Barcelona has been a staple ingredient of the Formula One calendar for the past 25 years and is one of the most loved races of the season.
A curtain raiser for the European season, the circuit has not only hosted the Spanish Grand Prix since 1991 but is also the testing venue of choice for Formula One teams during the winter months.
Familiarity doesn’t lessen the challenge for the teams come race day, however. The Catalunya circuit provides the ultimate examination for both car and driver, with its high speed pit straight and long corner durations placing huge demands on the tyres in the hot weather and making overtaking notoriously difficult.
With the track also susceptible to unpredictable cross winds, finding the optimum car set-up can be tricky on this track.
The Spanish Grand Prix is always one of the most colourful of the season with the home faithful always out in force to cheer on Fernando Alonso.
With a two-day general admission ticket to the circuit you can watch all the drama over the weekend, including the fight for pole position on Saturday and dramatic race on the Sunday.
