Could Mercedes be challenged by Max Verstappen-Red Bull Racing at the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix, too? From how we see it, there might be a small chance. And if are you Max Verstappen, that's probably enough. For starters, the track temperature will be warmer - teams are used to testing at the Circuit de Catalunya in February and racing in May. The mid-August summer could see higher than normal track temperatures - one of the few factors that can rattle the otherwise robust Mercedes cars. And of course, the higher downforce and flowing nature of the circuit that loads the front-left tyre.
Also in our Pits To Podium (https://bit.ly/pitstopodium) segment, we discuss possible tyre strategies for the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix, Sebastian Vettel's new chassis, Sergio Perez's return, George Russell's Saturday heroics and the ultra competitive mid-field battle. Tune in to hear our '5 things to watch for' for this weekend's race.
