The fifth round of the 2019 Formula One season continues this weekend at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.
Lewis Hamilton was the winner here last year.
That was the Mercedes star’s second consecutive victory, and the third time overall he has taken the chequered flag, and should he triumph this year he’ll become the second most successful driver at this Grand Prix, trailing only Michael Schumacher who registered six wins.
Valtteri Bottas enters this weekend as the Drivers’ Championship leader with 87 points – one point clear of his teammate Lewis Hamilton (86).
All five sessions – three practices, qualifying and the race – will be shown live on Sky Sports F1, while highlights of qualifying and the race will be shown on Channel 4.
