The MercedesAMG team has set a new record of 4 consecutive 1-2’s at the start of a season.
Just 1 point separates the Silver Arrow drivers Messrs Bottas and Hamilton in the drivers’ championship
Super performances are good but a Key thing MercedesAMG does not want is a repeat of the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix fwhen the unthinkable became reality as Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg collided with each other to end their races on the 1st lap.
Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) early title challenge is beginning to look a bit flat in here with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc sitting 35 and 40 points respectively behind Top spot after 4 races.
Mr. Leclerc, 21 anni, was quick to apologize for his crash in qualifying at Baku, but he has also been the victim of team strategy calls that have left him still chacing a maiden win.
4X world champion, Seb Vettel finished 3rd for the 2nd race in running last time out at Baku, says Ferrari are looking for a “smooth weekend” as the European leg of the racing calendar gets under way.
The Spanish GP circuit was built as part of the 1992 Barcelona Olympics development program, the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya took over staging the Spanish Grand Prix in Y 1991.
Barcelona is a circuit every F1 driver knows well because of the amount of time spent there during the annual Winter testing.
Following February’s pre-season outing, Ferrari left Barcelona having proved they had the fastest car over 2 weeks, with the rest of the pack wondering how much catching up would be needed to stop a runaway title race, so far that is the best foot out for The Scuderia.
The complex mix of long straights and technical corners has been a kind track for Ferrari over the years, with 7X world champion Michael Schumacher claiming 5 of the 8 Ferrari victories.
Recent races have not been as kind though, as the last Red race car to Top the Winner’s podium there was Fernando Alonso in Y 2013.
Ferrari is the Aristocrat of the automotive sector.
The iconic Italian Supercar manufacturer claimed the title according to the latest Brand Finance Global 500 2019 report launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
