The 2024 Spanish Grand Prix takes place over 66 laps of the 4.657-kilometre Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Despite the illustrious 111-year history of the Spanish Grand Prix, it has only been raced at its current venue since 1991. It has developed a fantastic reputation with the drivers over those three decades, with its appetizing home straight that lets them push the cars to their maximum speed.

Outside of that, it's a challenging place to come, with a satisfying mixture of slow and fast corners.
