Spain, Barcelona - April 27th - 29th - 2001

About the Spanish GP

Because all the teams use it for testing and development, Barcelona has built up a reputation for turning out processional racing. The circuit’s nature enables teams to test all aspects of their cars thoroughly, and unfortunately sometimes the race can seem like just another test with drivers parading lap after lap. As a location, Barcelona is pleasant, and there is normally a good turn out of people cheering on their countrymen. Such is the increase in popularity, that new grandstands capable of accommodating tens of thousands more people will be erected in time for the April event, which means even more noise will be heard when Pedro de la Rosa goes for position during the race.

Set up

The Circuit de Catalunya requires mid-range settings, with wings set to medium downforce. The long, sweeping corners can cause heavy understeer, so front-end grip is also important. The circuit surface itself is smooth, but very abrasive, meaning that tyre wear plays a large role in the outcome of the race.
