Lewis Hamilton finished in second place at the Barcelona circuit

NICO ROSBERG  has closed on Lewis Hamilton’s lead in the Drivers’ Championship finishing in first place ahead of his Mercedes team mate at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

The Formula One teams are no strangers to the Spanish circuit; not only have they raced there every year since 1991, they also conduct extensive testing at the venue.

Familiarity does not, however, lessen the challenge for car or driver.

Barcelona’s mix of high- and low-speed corners, plus its abrasive and rather bumpy track surface, makes for a physically and mechanically taxing race.
