Round 63/66:

points for Germany?

Round 62/66:

Vettel passes Schumacher, this time everything is done in a civilized manner.

Round 61/66:

Hamilton overtakes Sainz and is still fourth.

And that despite his accident with Magnussen on the first lap.

Great work from him.

Lap 60/66:

Hamilton and Sainz duel for fourth place.

Schumacher and Vettel are fighting for eleventh place - hopefully they'll do better than in Miami.

After all, today is not about points.

Round 58/66:

Sainz and Hamilton chase Bottas.

The Finn won't be able to defend himself much anymore.

And one lap later it's already happened, both pass.

Round 56/66:

Red Bull is almost impossible to take the double victory!

Perez sets the fastest race lap again.

Mick Schumacher is in eleventh place, which will probably not work with the points again.

He is in eleventh place, with Vettel right behind him.


Perez also comes in again to secure second place.

The distance to Russell is big enough.

This has already conceded to Bottas, the Finn's tires are degrading massively.

Round 50/66:

The Red Bull then seems to be much faster than the Mercedes.

Russell will have to settle for third place, but he'll be happy with that anyway.

Russell is now back in the pits, Bottas passes.

Will that even be a podium for Alfa Romeo?

Russell gives chase.

Bottas could theoretically drive through.

Lap 47/66:

Perez is still in the lead, but he will have to let the much faster Verstappen through right away.

Of course, the Mexican isn't thrilled.

"That's very unfair," he replies to the announcement on the team radio.

Lap 45/66:

Verstappen pits for the third time.

Russell comes shot on the straight, but Verstappen sits in front of him.

The three-stop strategy paid off!

Now Red Bull has the much better cards.

Will that maybe even be a double win?

Lap 43/66:

Zhou had to park his Alfa Romeo, engine problems were also the reason for him.

After his crash, Hamilton has fought his way back up the field and is in sixth place.

The upward trend at Mercedes is confirmed.

Round 40/66:

Great comeback from Vettel so far!

After his stop, he is eighth, that would be the next points.

Verstappen drives one fastest lap after the other because, unlike Russell, he is on the softer tires.

He gambles on an advantage towards the end of the race.

He will definitely pit again, Russell could drive through.

Round 38/66:

Vettel has to pit a second time.

Perez is also coming in now.

Round 36/66:

Verstappen is chasing Russell, there could be a showdown between the two young drivers.

Both drive a great race.

Sainz has the difficult task of saving Ferrari's honor.

He is currently fifth.

Round 33/66:


It's crazy what has happened here.

Let's sort it: Perez is in the lead, followed by Russell and Verstappen.

Bottas, who once again drives a flawless race, is fourth.

However, Perez and Russell have to pit again.

Due to the many pit stops, the field is mixed up - there will only be clarity again after a few laps.

Round 31/66:

And suddenly George Russell is in the lead - but not for long.

Because Perez comes rushing in from behind with fresher tires and grabs the Mercedes.

The Mexican is now in the lead!

Verstappen had let him pass due to the significantly higher pace.

It goes back and forth - it's completely open who will win here today!

Round 27/66: Totally crazy!

Leclerc's Ferrari suddenly goes limp!

Monegasse can't believe it, but it doesn't help - he has to park the car.

Maximum bitterness for him and the Scuderia, he was comfortably in the lead.

Lap 25/66:

Vettel may be playing poker on a one-stop strategy with his late pit stop.

Does it pay off?

He's 16 for now. Schumacher has slipped out of the top ten, unable to follow the pace of Alonso, Tsunoda and Norris.

Round 24/66:

What a duel between Russell and Verstappen!

The DRS on the Red Bull works one lap, one lap not.

But the Brit defended with a crowbar.

Very strong!

Round 20/66:

The longer Verstappen drives behind Russell, the worse the tires are.

Leclerc comes into the pits for the second time because his lead has grown steadily.

Meanwhile, Sainz keeps fighting his way up the field and is already seventh.

Round 17/66:

Vettel is the only driver who has not yet pitted.

This put the Heppenheimer in sixth place.

Verstappen continues to swear.

Round 16/66:

Verstappen fights against Russell - but with blunt weapons!

Again the DRS doesn't work.

The world champion is beside himself.

After the crash with Magnussen on the first lap, Lewis Hamilton is no longer in the mood, he would prefer to park the car, as he argues on the radio.

Round 14/66:

Leclerc's lead over Russell is over ten seconds.

This is looking good for Ferrari.

Round 12/66:

Norris collects Schumacher.

After the great start, his pace doesn't seem quite right.

Russell is now trying to keep Verstappen behind him.

His luck: the DRS overtaking aid does not work for Verstappen.

So the Dutchman will not come by.

Now the big tire change follows anyway.

Round 11/66:

The big beneficiary is Charles Leclerc.

Perez, Verstappen and Russell are fighting for third place, the Monegasse can drive away completely relaxed.

Carlos Sainz is the first driver in the pits.

Now Perez lets Verstappen pass.

Round 10/66:


Verstappen takes off!

A gust of wind is fatal for the Dutchman - he loses the car and ends up in the gravel.

But he finds his way back onto the track and is now behind teammate Perez, who could just wave him over.

Round 9/66:

Perez attacks Russell.

But overtaking is not easy on this track.

Is the Mexican coming?

Schumacher had to give up a place because Frenchman Ocon is very fast.

Seventh place for the German at the moment.

Round 8/66:

Sainz flies off!

It just won't work for the Spaniard, it's not his year so far.

He falls back to 11th place.

Lap 6/66:

The red tires won't hold out for too long in the heat, so the pit stops will come early.

Not much is happening at the front at the moment, the drivers are trying not to lose their tyres.

Lap 2/66:

George Russell got off to a good start, the Mercedes driver passed local hero Carlos Sainz and is in third place.

Perez is also past Sainz.

Update from May 22, 2 p.m.:

In the run-up to the Barcelona Grand Prix, there was a lot of fuss about Sebastian Vettel’s Aston Martin.

After the weak start to the season, the racing team brought a B version of the car onto the track, which comes very close to the Red Bull.

Red Bull Motorsport Director Dr.

Helmut Marko spoke of an "incredible copy".

You can read more about copying allegations here.

First report from May 22nd:

Barcelona – Charles Leclerc allowed himself a single moment of negligence in Barcelona – in the end the world championship leader got out of his Ferrari as a pole setter.

The slip just before the end didn't stop the Monegasque, he is on pole position for the fourth time this season.

Even safe because Max Verstappen's Red Bull technology went on strike again: The world champion was only able to take second place.

"The pressure was great, I only had one lap left," said Leclerc, "but then it went really well." In the decisive section, he allowed himself to spin after having been almost flawless in Spain: in all three practice sessions and he also set the fastest lap time in Q1.

After his slip, he still drove the clear best time.

In the run-up to the Spanish Grand Prix (all TV information is available here), Leclerc gave a strong response to Verstappen's recent successes: the Dutchman had recently won two races in a row and reduced the gap to Leclerc to 19 World Championship points.

In Barcelona, ​​of all things, he complained about a lack of speed during the decisive attempt: the DRS, the folding wing, did not open.

"It's hard to say whether it would have been enough for pole," said Verstappen, "but I couldn't try, that's a shame."

Behind the two rivals, Leclerc's teammate Carlos Sainz is third in front of his home crowd.

Despite a few updates, Mercedes has not yet been able to catch up with the leaders, but is still on the up: George Russell finished fourth again ahead of record world champion Lewis Hamilton, who finished sixth.

Formula 1 in Barcelona in the live ticker: Schumacher gives hope, Vettel weak

Sebastian Vettel disappointed in the Aston Martin with 16th place. Mick Schumacher, however, managed a premiere in his Formula 1 career with the help of the rulers.

The Haas driver initially slipped to eleventh place at the end of Q2 and would have been eliminated, but the stewards canceled a lap time from Lando Norris.

The McLaren driver had just overshot the track barrier.

In any case, Schumacher slipped back into the top 10, for the first time he took part in the final qualifying section in the premier class, finishing tenth.

A good result compared to the previous history: The German had missed large parts of the third practice session because a brake caught fire in the Spanish heat.
