The Spanish Grand Prix goes ahead full throttle this weekend with Max Verstappen building up a head of steam at the top of the standings.


The reigning world champion has triumphed in his last two races and boasts four wins in six outings this season to open up a 39-point cushion over Red Bull teammate Sergio Pérez.

Pérez finished 16th in the Monaco Grand Prix, following his first truly dismal weekend in an otherwise excellent campaign from the Mexican driver.

Aston Martin star Fernando Alonso capitalised on Pérez's absence from the top of the pack and finished second in Monte Carlo as he continues to punch in remarkably consistent displays.

Alonso will be greeted like a king upon his return to Spain, while Ferrari ace Carlos Sainz will hope to put in a sizzling display on home soil. brings you the full schedule for race weekend at the Spanish Grand Prix.
