Everything you need to know for the Portuguese Grand Prix

Buckle up, sit back and enjoy the ride. We’re at Portimão this weekend for the Portuguese Grand Prix and, just in case our podium last time out wasn’t exciting enough for you, the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve – with its dizzying elevation changes and fiendishly tricky twists and turns – has all the ingredients to throw up a rollercoaster race.

 

To set you up for the Portuguese Grand Prix, our latest preview has the thoughts of McLaren F1 drivers Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, and the inside line on what you should be watching out for this weekend.

“Being on the podium for the second time in Formula 1 was an amazing feeling, but I couldn’t have done it without every single person in the team. Everyone at track and the factory continues to go above and beyond to give us the best possible chance every weekend. The result shows the progress we’re making to compete closer towards the front of the grid, but we know not every race will go in our favour. We just need to keep our head down and look to improve in all areas to find that extra tenth that can give us the edge against strong competition. I think Imola really showed us that we need to try and turn every opportunity into an advantage with the fight being so close.”

“Up next is Portimão and I’m eager to get back in the car. Racing there is a lot of fun with the track having some unique elements that you don’t see at every race on the calendar. There’s a good mixture of high and low-speed corners with various changes in elevation that make it an exciting challenge. Coming out of some of the turns, you can really feel your stomach drop with the steep changes in gradient.”
