Formula 1 arrives in Barcelona this weekend for the 2023 Spanish Grand Prix. Max Verstappen still leads the Drivers’ Championship with 144 points, with his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez holding second place with 105 points. Last weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix saw Aston Martin driver Fernando Alonso take second place, this time around it’s likely all eyes will be on Alonso as he heads to the site of his last F1 victory in 2013, the Circuit de Catalunya, with home race advantage (alongside Carlos Sainz Jr.).
