2 more days until first training session at F1 circuit of Catalunya that is 20km north-east of Barcelona city centre. This circuit has 16 curves, in first straight line, speed can get over 311 km/h and in the second straight line speed cand get over 291km/h; last part of the lap circuit is made from tight corners.
Kimmi Raikkonen's record of Catalunya circuit is 1:21.670, registered in 2008 and last year winner was Button.

First race in 91' was won by Nigel Mansell - Williams-Renault after a dramatic race when Senna spins at the last corner.

For spectators, the Elf corner - at the final two turns - is the best places to watch, as it is one of the track's few overtaking opportunities.
