The track is one of the most advanced circuit types, and it has 5 left hand corners and 8 right hand corners. Other significant features of the beautiful Barcelona circuit used for the Spanish grand prix include 2 long straights that are very exhaustive and 3 huge and fast curves. The heavy braking areas are two in number and here, the cars move from 6th to the 3rd gear.

Other significant things about the Catalunya circuit includes the fact that majority of the teams prefer it for their winter testing. Because of this, some of the teams that do not have the chance to do this complain that teams are becoming too used to it.
