F1: Spanish Grand Prix, What We Will Be Looking For
We are now 4 races into the 2018 F1 season and it has been thrilling, this weekend we are on to Barcelona for what we expect will be more super racing.
Preparations for the Spanish Grand Prix get underway Friday at the Circuit de Catalunya with F1 fans hoping for a repeat of the excitement in Y 2017’s race.
Below are the 2017 race hilights
Last years Podium: Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo
Following the crash at Baku that put Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen out of the race, all eyes will be on the Red Bull racers in Catalunya.
Red Bull tried to play down the incident and made both drivers apologize, but said that they will continue to allow their drivers to race each other.
This weekend Mr. Verstappen will be out remind his team of his talent and put on a repeat performance that saw him become the youngest ever F1 winner here in Spain 2 years ago.
However, the real test will see MercedesAMG’s Lewis Hamilton Vs Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel
Mr. Vettel has been far more consistent than Mr. Hamilton this season, thought he does find himself 4 points behind him.
This could all change in Spain as Ferrari’s true pace is likely to come to the front on the resurfaced Catalunya track, a circuit that is likely to settle the argument over which team has the fastest car.
Mr. Vettel will be gunning for his 4th Pole running this year in in Spain, his career 50th, and should he get it then he will likely run from lights out to Chequered Flag .
