The Formula One teams are no strangers to Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya; not only have they raced there every year since 1991, they also conduct extensive testing at the venue.
For spectators Elf corner is among the best places to watch, as it is one of the track’s few overtaking opportunities. For the drivers it is the final two turns, known collectively as New Holland, which provide one of the biggest challenges of the season. A fast exit is essential in order to maximise speed down the start-finish straight into Elf.
