Overtaking is not easy on the 4,655 kilometres of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. Therefore, it will be mainly on two factors, to defend either the Start Position or to improve in the Grand Prix of Spain (15.10/Sky and RTL).
From the Pole will start Lewis Hamilton, the six-time formula 1 world champion has race, therefore the best chance of victory in the sixth season. The Start-up but has to fit and the tire need to hold.
the FIGHT FOR the first PLACE AFTER turn ONE, Hamilton knows as well as Valtteri Bottas, who a year ago had the Pole but in the race against Hamilton lost. No errors on the first meters, the highest care when the Red lights go out. Bottas from Position two, three Max Verstappen lurking in the Red Bull, whose car was arrows in the simulations in the Training virtually on a par with the still black-painted Silver. All of the driving on the softest tyre compound los. The fastest but also the least durable.
FIGHT WITH THE BEST STRATEGY: One or two stops, that is the question. The more tire changes, more could be rolled the field through each other. For the fun of it at the voltage but no Team will pick up its driver in the Box, it depends on how the tires hold up this time.
the FIGHT WITH THE GUMS: In the last two races at Silverstone, and Mercedes had in the race have big problems with the Pirelli tires. Once front, once rear. Verstappen came through, however, without difficulties. Bubbles as the last race cars were on tires of the Mercedes, neither in the Training nor in the qualification in Spain. All clear so? One week ago the problems appeared first in the race.
the FIGHT WITH THE FERRARI: starting position eleven. Sebastian Vettel it is not easy. The Ferrari, despite a new Chassis, not a glaring leap in performance. On the wonders of things in the race, Vettel also has no hope. In the field of the fray, he will have to anyway to get through the first unscathed, the start-up phase.
