Barcelona is a circuit that every Formula One team knows well as they complete thousands of kilometres there in testing throughout the season. The mix of high-speed corners, a very long straight and an abrasive track surface, makes the Circuit de Catalunya a uniquely complete circuit. Finding the right set-up compromise is always a tricky business at the Spanish Grand Prix.
World champion Fernando Alonso was the fastest race driver in Friday afternoons second practice session at the Circuit de Catalunya. In front of a huge home crowd, the Spaniard finished third in his Renault, behind Hondas and Red Bulls respective third drivers, Anthony Davidson and Robert Doornbos. Archrival Michael Schumacher was sixth.
Cool stats and driver/team data
US grand prix this weekend - we could be watching the final races of Michael Schumacher, word is that if Raikonnen goes to Ferrari, MS may retire.
I'll start a thread for the US Grand Prix tomorrow
