From 1000’s and 1000’s of kilometres of practise and testing that happens at the track before the season starts and sometimes during to the season to the fact that the Spanish Grand Prix has been held at the track every year since 1991, everybody knows everything about the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
That gives the teams a chance to show their worth in the set up of the car, the strategists their chance to shine during the race and it is of course a chance of drivers to really step up and show their worth.
