Hello F1 Fans,
Up next is the first European race of the year held at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya. Another reason to look forward to the Spanish Grand Prix is the improved aero packages each team will introduce in an effort to become more competitive. The standings after the Bahrain Grand Prix are Sebastian Vettel leading with 77 championship points, Kimi Räikkönen in 2nd with 67 points and Lewis Hamilton in 3rd with 50 points.
Will Vettel continue with their last win? Will Raikkonen fight back to win? Will Ferrari find their way back to the lead? There are so many questions and yet many of the driver's are quiet about their form and the car's potential.
Pirelli will be bringing hard compound(Orange) and medium compound (White) for the Spanish Grand Prix, but there will be some changes to the tyres at the famous Circuit de Catalunya this year. The hard compound has been modified that will make the rubber slightly more durable and lower its operating temperature. There will also be an extra set of hard tyres allocated for free practice.
The Spanish Grand Prix will start at 8:00AM EST with the pre-race starting at 7:30AM EST. It's going to be another exciting weekend of racing. If you're in the New York City area and are looking for some Formula 1 action with other F1 fans, be sure to join us for the Bahrain Grand Prix. We hope to see you all!
