2020 Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix session timings and preview

This round mark the conclusion of the triple header that began with the British Grand Prix on August 2.

Mercedes has been the dominant force in the 2020 F1 season so far, with five victories in six races, but the German manufacturer was outfoxed by Red Bull at last weekend’s 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Mercedes and Red Bull are expected to be the two fastest teams yet again in Barcelona, with Racing Point and Ferrari further behind.

This weekend could mark the return of Sergio Perez after his absences from the two Silverstone race, provided the Racing Point driver returns a negative COVID-19 test. Nico Hulkenberg will remain on standby at Racing Point in case Perez is not cleared for return.
