‘Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?


Spaniard, Spaniard, Spaniard…’

Formula 1’s gladiators are set to battle once more at the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend, just days after duking it out in Portimão. The arena? The captivating Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. A frequent pre-season proving ground, it’s a familiar F1 haunt but, with pre-season testing only taking place in Bahrain this year, we’ve had to wait a little longer for our latest Spanish sojourn.

To learn what’s in store, look no further than our race preview with the thoughts of Lando and Daniel ahead of the weekend.

Lando Norris

“I’m excited to go to Spain! We seem to be on good form at the moment, so we’re just trying to keep that up, keep scoring points and things like that. It’s still early days in the championship, so another weekend like Portugal would be nice. We need to keep plugging away, keep trying to get some points and another good result in qualifying. We’ll see what we can do and what the car’s like, but I’m confident we can execute a good race.”


Daniel Ricciardo

“I’m really looking forward to getting back on track in Spain. Having been to two unique circuits in Imola and Portimão, it’ll be good to get some laps in on a circuit I know really well. All the teams do so much testing at Barcelona, so we pretty much know what to expect right out of the box. Having so much familiarity with the circuit and the high levels of grip should mean I can really push the car and not have too many other factors to worry about. I’m feeling more and more comfortable with every race distance, so I’m really excited to see what we can do in the next few races.”
