Circuit De Barcelona-Catalunya
Even if the winners of the Spanish circuit know the track by heart, it will still be quite a challenge for everyone. After all, the Barcelona has a good variation of corners for high and low speeds.
The abrasive road and the heavy winds of the circuit can rapidly wear down the tires. This will be a challenge for the mechanics that are looking to optimize a driver’s vehicle for the tracks.
One of the notable attack points in this circuit is the first turn. This part of the circuit provides an opportunity for a driver to overtake his opponent. For many veterans, the most important attack point is the last two turns which many are calling the New Holland. Drivers will need to perform a fast exit in this corner in order to get the best timing to enter the first turn.
