Information On Catalunya Circuit, Barcelona

Circuit de Catalunya aka Circuit de Barcelona is situated to the North of Barcelona in Montmeló, Noth-East Spain. It is most famous for annually hosting the Spanish F1 Grand Prix although is also home to Moto GP, and GT racing competitions as well as other racing events. The F1 teams should know the Catalunya Circuit inside out by now as they have been racing there since 1991 and have also used the venue for conducting racing tests. However, this Spanish GP circuit is still a hugely challenging track, with its own idiosyncrasies which have been known to throw drivers in the past.
 
The track surface of The Catalunya Circuit tends to be quite rough and will take its toll on the F1 tyres. Those Formula 1 drivers who have been struggling with tyre wear over the course of the Formula one Grand Prix season may find this a challenging track. German Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher is so far the most successful current driver on the Catalunya Circuit, having won the Spanish GP 6 times in previous years.

The relatively temperate conditions in Northern Spain, by comparison for instance to Sakhir Circuit in Bahrain will mean that heat management will not be as much of an issue with regards to the drivers themselves, the cars, and particularly the tyres. To get a better understanding of the conditions faced by the drivers you can view the Climate Profile for the Catalunya Circuit. You can also view the Track Temperature Chart to get a sense of what the tyre degradation – or ‘blistering’ – will be like over the course of the race, and also what the traction will be like for the F1 cars. 
 
The Spanish F1 Grand Prix is also famous for its unpredictable winds. Their strength and direction is hugely changeable, and given the emphasis on aerodynamics in modern Formula One racing, finding an optimal setup for the Formula One cars will prove difficult. The aerodynamic drag generated by these winds means that F1 drivers tend to understeer or oversteer as the conditions change, which makes for some unexpected performances.

The abrasive Spanish GP track and erratic winds, combined with the high degradation tyres tend to make for a hugely watchable and unpredictable Spanish Grand Prix. Keep your eye on the ever changing forecast for Barcelona’s Catalunya Circuit in the run up to the F1 Spanish GP race weekend.
