1992 : Held in the wet. A rare mistake from Senna in the wet - and he went off the track and didn't finish. Schumi looked superb and was managing to catch Mansell, but Mansell started going faster. A superb finish from Jean Alesi in third as well.

1994 : Schumi driving to a superb second with his car stuck in fifth gear for most of the race.

1996 : A superb win from Schumi. One of the his best races. In the wet and in the underpowered Ferrari - he took on both Williams and pulled out a massive lead to finish first, and took his first win for Ferrari.

It's a shame that the chicane was put in before the last corner - as before that, it was one of the best corners in F1. Only decent thing about the track - in my opinion.
Agreed - the new final complex is crap and hasn't helped the racing.

Was there not a year Hakkinen broke down on the final lap whilst winning? I kinda remember that. And Pastor winning and the Williams garage catching fire.

Not really as the one that came out yesterday can go back in once they have sorted the water leak.

It appears there is going to be some unusual strategy in the Spanish GP as the medium tyre is 2 seconds slowed than the soft with the soft capable of 25 laps out of 66.
I can see some of those at the back running the medium for a few laps at the start. Those at the front going at least two stints on the soft to begin with the hope of a small number of laps on the medium to finish. If there is a potentially long safety car period then you could change to mediums for the safety car period and change back to soft before the safety car comes back in.

10 place grid penalty for Vandoorne. Taking on new power unit elements.


BTW, anyone notice P2 is getting a better start than P1 in the supports?

At least it's not Fred taking a 10 place grid penalty, how heartbreaking would that be to put in all that effort and have it thrown away. I can't help but admire him, how he got that slowmobile into the top ten, is beyond me

Initially a clean start as Vettel got the better of Hamilton but fairly messy going in to Turn 1. Raikkonen breaks his left front suspension and Massa gets a puncture.

The Bottas vs. Vettel battle was superb.

That was a strange move by Vandoorne. The VSC is out.

That was cutting it fine by Ferrari. Was Lewis forced off?
