The Spanish Grand Prix has been a Formula 1 staple for almost as long as the world championship itself. The race has been on the calendar since 1951 and it has kicked off the European leg of the season since 1993. The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is also a popular testing venue, due to its eclectic mix of slow, medium and high-speed corners. Only three of the circuit’s 16 turns are taken at less than 100km/h (62mph) and the result is an average speed of 200km/h (124mph).
Grid advantage: Pole position is located on the left side of the track, on the racing line. There is more grip available there, but it’s the longest run to Turn One of the season and a lot can change during that initial 730-metre sprint.
Join us for the latest updates and results from the Circuit de Catalunya, as the second practice session for the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc at the wheel of the SF1000, ready to continue evaluating the ideal set-up ahead of the qualifying session and the race on Sunday.
