Formula 1's 2021 season continues this weekend at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for the Spanish Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton has a eight point lead over Max Verstappen in the drivers' championship after taking the win last time out at Portimao.

Hamilton overtook Verstappen and teammate Valtteri Bottas in spectacular fashion to secure his 97th career victory in F1.

Mercedes hasn't been beaten in qualifying at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya since 2012, so Red Bull has its work cut out for this weekend.
