2006 Spanish GP Technical Review

Craig Scarborough analyses the technical updates seen at Barcelona

Despite being the sixth round of the season, the Spanish Grand Prix was really the first chance to test the cars' all-round performance, as the Circuit de Catalunya, with its classic layout, is the most visited test venue for the Formula One teams.

Every part of the car needs to deliver in order to run a good lap of the track. It has long corners, long straight, slower sequences, and an abrasive surface to test tyres. With this kind of layout, teams with good pace at Barcelona should also go well at most circuits, but especially at places like Suzuka and Silverstone.
