Inaugurated two weeks before its first Formula 1 Grand Prix, September 1991, the Catalunya circuit has proved to be one of the best-designed circuits of the recent era; it is well-liked by most drivers and so has retained the privilege of hosting the Spanish Grand Prix ever since.
The Circuito de Catalunya is the fourth track in the Barcelona area to stage motor races. The track is a modern road circuit with 8 right-hand and 5 left-hand corners. It includes 3 magnificent sweeping, fast curves, and 2 long, power-sapping straights.
There are also 2 heavy braking areas where F1 cars go from 6th down to 3rd gear. Like Many-Cours in France, it is an ultra-safe state-of-the-art F1 venue but perhaps too clinical and lacking in atmosphere, due to its huge run-offs areas.
Now favoured by most F1 teams for winter testing since Estoril was removed from the calendar. Being on the doorstep of one of Europe's great cultural cities is another reason for its popularity.
