A BIG test coming up for the F1 2022 regulations at this weekend’s 2022 Spanish Grand Prix. Why? Because the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona has traditionally been a very tough one to overtake at. Will the drivers be able to follow each other better? Will they be able to pull off overtakes with the newly revamped regulations?

Spain marks the start of the ‘European leg’ of the Formula 1 calendar; although Formula 1 raced in Imola a few races ago. Traditionally, the teams line up big upgrade packages for this race – we tell you two easy ways to keep a track.
As for the teams, this race will offer them a good view of the progress they’ve made with their cars; given that one of the two pre-season tests were held here earlier in the year. We suspect that ‘overtaking’ and maybe even ‘tyre management’ could be the buzzwords this weekend.
Would Ferrari’s upgrades bring Charles Leclerc back in the fight with Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen? Can the Spaniards – Carlos Sainz & Fernando Alonso use the power of the Spanish fans to race themselves to better results in 2022? Will the upgrades change the pecking order?
There’s a lot packed into our near-30 mins long episode. Happy listening!
