Formula 1 in Spain

Traditionally, the Formula 1 season in Europe begins in Barcelona / Montmelló.

Since 1991 Formula 1 races have been held at the Circuit de Catalunya, near the remote town of Montmeló, about 20 miles from Barcelona. The track is 4,655 km long and has 16 turns, which are driven through 66 times. In addition to hosting the Formula 1 race, the Circuit is a popular test track for Formula 1 and motorcycle teams.
Typical of the route are the long corners, which are driven at high speeds, so the tyres of the cars are severely tested; vehicles with better aerodynamics have an advantage here.

The Circuit de Catalunya is a technically demanding, but fast race course; all cornering speeds - slow, medium, and quick - are required.

Michael Schumacher won his first Formula 1 race for Ferrari here in 1996. With a total of six wins Michael Schumacher has the record number of victories at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Between 1969 and 1975 Formula 1 races were run on the street circuit on the Montjuïc hill, Barcelona. Apart from Formula 1 this is also the home to Moto GP, one of the more important races.

Recommendations for Staying on the Racing Ground

Please note that the race ground is very spacious and with uncovered seats you are exposed to the sun. Sun protection is essential.

You should bring the following:

  • Hat / cap
  • Sunscreen with a high sun protection factor
  • Sun glasses
  • Comfortable footwear
  • Ear plugs

Come early on the event days: in the morning, in addition to the Formula 1 events, there will be other races of other racing formulas.
Leave plenty of time to go after the last event. You can still eat and drink in peace. That way you can skip the traffic.
