The Montmelo circuit is very significant as it has various and complete technical features that reinforce or underline the strengths and weaknesses of single-seaters. First Grand Prix in 1991 on a 4,675 meter long track and a total of 16 corners. Barcelona alternates fast areas and corners, intended to be associated with plenty of aerodynamic loading, with slower and more twisty areas where traction makes the difference. There aren’t many overtaking opportunities, the main ones are at Turn 1 after the pit straight, while the second Drs area is on the opposite straight leading into Turn 10. The final sector is very important, exiting the corner from Turn 12 begins a twisty area ending with the S of Turns 14 and 15, a section where traction and slow motion stability make all the difference.
