Who will take pole? Hopefully Vettel :)
Who will win the race? Hopefully Vettel :)
Will we finally see a Safety Car period? I don't think so. The first safety car period will be at Monaco
Barcelona is traditionally the upgrade race: will the order change? I think we saw the biggest upgrades in Istanbul. So I don't expect that the order changes in Barcelona

Phil, please, don’t take me wrong :hug: . But could you put the ñ in España in the thread title? please, please, please :pray: . It looks horrible (and sounds even worse :blush: ).

Who will take pole? Let me think ''hmm'' Vettel?
Who will win the race? May the best win, whoever he is.
Will we finally see a Safety Car period? As long as nobody gets hurt, why not? It's been quite a rainy spring. Maybe we get a wet GP.
What about the midfield? My impossible wish: to have them all within 2 tenths of the fastest car.
Barcelona is traditionally the upgrade race: will the order change? Not much.

The Spanish Grand Prix will have one of the longest zones for the Drag Reduction System seen so far.

The circuit’s official Twitter account said the zone where drivers can use DRS during the race will be 830m long. It is expected to be situated on the start/finish straight.

The FIA reduced the length of the DRS zone at the Chinese Grand Prix from 902m to 752m after concerns were raised that it would make overtaking too easy.

Concerns were also raised at the frequency of overtaking in the DRS zone during the Turkish Grand Prix, and the ease with which drivers could overtaking using their adjustable rear wings.

The Circuit de Catalunya has a reputation for being one of the most difficult F1 circuits to overtake on.

Hope McLaren get their updates and pitstops right this time. It's always the same: McLaren bring updates to a GP weekend, but decide after the friday that they are not good enough so they take them off and race without upgrades. Hope Vettel DNF and doesn't take pole for once.

Well, that's no satisfaction for anyone when your rivals get DNF and other teams collect the spoils. This is not racing, this is only winning. I hope no one gets DNF and may the best win.

We need Vettel to DNF for the sake of the Championship, plus, it's also a mechanical sport

I really hope Mark wakes up and beats Vettel :) He was very good last year and in 2009 also.

I think is time for Mark Webber to win. In Australia finish 5th , in Malaysia finish 4th , in China finish 3rd , in Turkey finish 2nd...and in Spain will be the WINNER :)

Btw guys, I'm aware the F1Zone calendar says the race is this Sunday. Of course, that is incorrect. I must have been sleepy doing the calendar way back in December :lol:

Who will take pole?
Well I think the guy who did it in Turkey....and in China....and in Malaysia. Did I miss one out? Oh, yeah, and of course in Australia , too :roll:: :sleep:
To be honest, I don't feel like watching qualifying next weekend.

Who will win the race?
I hope I'm wrong, but "The Finger" I guess.

What about the midfield?
I wonder if a certain 7 times world-champion can finally match the pace of his teammate and doesn't stick out of the mass with his strange defensive moves in the first few laps. Just for once.

Barcelona is traditionally the upgrade race: will the order change?
No, it won't. McLaren hopefully brings some upgrades worth mentioning which can bring them closer to Red Bull.

Early weather forecast:

Friday - Light rain, 21c, 30% chance of rain
Saturday - Rain, 21c, 60% chance of rain
Sunday - Scattered showers, 22c, 30% chance of rain

Spanishweather.net says there will be light rain through Friday and Saturday as well as Sunday morning, but it'll be a dry race.

MSN says 90% rain chance on Friday, 95% Saturday, 25% Sunday.
