The Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona has 14 corners. The circuit will also host it’s 33rd race this weekend – the 2023 Spanish Grand Prix.
Are all the signs hinting towards a home win for the ever-popular Fernando Alonso? Btw, he did miss out on a win in Monaco last week, as the data now confirms.
In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil Arora, @f1statsguru aka Sundaram and Kunal Shah preview the upcoming 2023 Spanish Grand Prix. The key buzz will be around Fernando Alonso, obviously, but has the buzz around Carlos Sainz faded a wee bit after he joined Ferrari?
Also, full focus on upgrades at a circuit that’s best-suited to test them. Will the change in layout aid better racing or will it be another factor for all to blame in case the race is a snoozefest? Also, look out for tyre management – the heat and the circuit are tyre busters! It’s no surprise that Pirelli has brought their hardest compounds for this race. And of course, that’s another blame factor, should we need it! 😉
