The layout that Schumacher adored returns to the Spanish GP

In just seven days, Formula 1 passes from one monarchy to another as it moves from the Principality of Monaco to Spain. According to the Brembo technicians, the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit is classified as a circuit that is not very demanding on brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 2 on the difficulty index, the lowest so far this year due to the 1,047 meter (0.6 mi) long straight which facilitates heat dissipation.

This year the F1 teams have not done their winter testing at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit, but two weeks ago the circuit hosted the 6 Hours of Barcelona, a race held for GT, Touring and Prototype cars manufactured from 1947 to 1990. The layer of rubber left on the tarmac by these vehicles during the races will have increased the already high level of grip on the track. ​
