Ferrari upgrades could ease pressure on Charles Leclerc, there are tensions at Red Bull despite race success and it’s now or NEVER for Lewis Hamilton’s fast-fading title hopes – seven things to look out for at the Spanish Grand Prix

The Formula One circus rolls into town in Barcelona this weekend as the sixth round of the world championship sees F1 descend on the Spanish city. In 21 of those races, the team that wins has also won the world championship, and 26 of the teams on pole here end up victorious at the end of the season too – last year, when Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton won from pole, proving an exception. After Leclerc’s fine start to the season, seemingly heralding him as the champion-in-waiting, title rival Verstappen has won the last two races and three of the last four. Ferrari has plenty of pedigree, winning the race 12 times – four times as many as Red Bull’s three, so they could just about be favourites. If he does want to resurrect his title hopes, it’s now or never.
