After the glitz and glamor of Formula 1’s debut in Miami last time, the series returns to one of its most traditional venues with the Spanish Grand Prix.

It heads to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for round six of the 2022 season as the battle for the top of the drivers’ championship between Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen intensifies.

All the action will be broadcast live on Sky Sports F1 this weekend with the race taking place on Sunday afternoon at 2pm.

The W Series is also continuing after the double header to open the 2022 season in Miami and we have a guide on how it can hold up in every moment.

The image of the championship heading to Spain

Reigning champion Verstappen took his third win of the year in Miami two weeks ago, but Leclerc’s second place was enough to keep the Ferrari man 16 points clear at the top of the starting standings.

That was also the Dutchman’s second win in a row, although Leclerc is comfortable being the man marked at this point in the season.

“I think we’ve been in one position since the beginning of the season, which means we’re chased for now,” Leclerc said.

“I quite like this position to be honest, because it means you’re doing something right.”

A third double podium finish of the year for Ferrari after Carlos Sainz’s third place ensured the Italian marque remained top of the Constructors’ Championship by six points also from Red Bull.

Sainz, however, aiming for another strong performance at his home Grand Prix, remains fifth in the drivers’ standings, with Verstappen’s Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez and Mercedes’ George Russell ahead of him.

A crucial weekend for Mercedes

The last five editions of the Spanish Grand Prix have been won by Lewis Hamilton, but Mercedes’ struggles so far in 2022 have left the seven-time world champion languishing in sixth place, with his only podium finish so far coming in the opening of the season in Bahrain.

His lack of pace has raised questions about whether Mercedes should abandon its W13 layout and return to its Barcelona test specs, which seemed much more consistent.

Team boss Toto Wolff hasn’t ruled it out, despite insisting Barcelona’s concept is “much slower on paper”, and this weekend provides them with a critical benchmark to consider their plans for the rest of the season and beyond.

“I would ask that we get an answer after Barcelona because that’s the real correlation that we have,” Wolff said of the possibility of Mercedes scrapping its current car design.

“And by then we’ll look in the mirror and say, are we wrong or not?”
