Last Sunday the Circuit de Catalunya in Montmeló (Barcelona) held the Gran Premio de España of Formula One. Thousands of both local and international fans saw the race live from the grand stand of Montmeló. It was a very exciting race from the first to the last lap so none of the fans were disappointed.
Every year the Grand Prix of Spain is one of the most liked by fans because it takes place at the beginning of the season and because everyone likes to enjoy the good climate of the Mediterranean Coast. Moreover, the first weeks of this year’s championship have been the most exciting of the last few years, because each race has been won by a different driver, which has made the Spanish GP even more interesting. And this tendency was repeated in Barcelona, because the winner was Pastor Maldonado (Williams), who won the first F1 race of his career.
The second to classify was Fernando Alonso, who was very close to winning after 66 laps fighting for the first place against Maldonado. Alonso has just won once in Spain (2006). The third place was taken by Kimmi Raikkonen.
Maldonado, Alonso and Raikkonen are the drivers who enter this year into the “history” of the Grand Prix of Spain of Formula One in the Circuit de Catalunya. Since the circuit was founded in 1991, the king has been Michael Schumacher, who has won there 6 times. Behind him there is Mikka Hakkinen with 3 victories.
However, the history of this race doesn’t finish here… What will happen next year? And the next? And then?
