Watch the best drivers in the world fight for the title at the 2017 Spanish Grand Prix and tackle this exciting circuit. The vibrant city of Barcelona hosts the Grand Prix again at the Circuit de Catalunya. With its great mix of high and low speed corners, the circuit truly challenges its contestants from Alonso to Vettel, and its numerous elevation changes offer some spectacular panoramic views of the race and its picturesque setting. There will also be plenty of time for you to explore Barcelona in your own time. Camp Nou, La Sagrada Familia and the Parc Guelli by Gaudi are only some of the must-see attractions in Barcelona. There has never been a better way to experience one of the highlights of the Grand Prix season.
