Red Bull v Ferrari - Who Will Dominate in Spain?

With strong showings by both teams so far this season, the race for the Constructors Championship seems to be a fight between Red Bull and Ferrari.

Despite Red Bull driver Max Verstappen winning the Driver’s Championship last season, Red Bull themselves missed out on the Constructors Championship to Mercedes by 28 points as the German team claimed their eighth consecutive title.

Ferrari haven’t won the Constructors Championship since 2008, placing best of the rest last season, 262 points behind second-place Red Bull.

Though not considered the most exciting race on the calendar by any means, Barcelona could be the stage for another entertaining fight between the two heavyweights.

Red Bull’s Season So Far

Red Bull’s season started brightly in pre-season testing in Bahrain, with Max Verstappen topping the timings. Though the season itself started in a less than ideal manner, with both Verstappen, Sergio Perez and sister-team AlphaTauri driver Pierre Gasly retiring from the race in Bahrain due to mechanical issues.

However, Red Bull did have a strong showing in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Perez earned his first-ever pole in Formula One. After 215 races, the longest wait in the sport’s history, the Mexican driver finally got his maiden pole, with his teammate starting in fourth behind the two Ferraris. Despite his qualifying heroics, an ill-timed safety car ruined Perez’s race, but allowed Verstappen through, who went on to win his first race of the season.

The Red Bull reliability issues made another appearance, this time at Albert Park, Australia. With Verstappen cruising in second, Red Bull were looking to secure a 2 - 3 finish, but an alleged fuel leak ended the Dutchman’s race early, with Perez inheriting a P2 finish.

Since the premature retirement of Verstappen in Australia, Red Bull have been on an impressive run. Verstappen picked up a grand slam in Italy (pole, winning both the race and the sprint and leading every lap), with Perez finishing second for the first Red Bull 1 - 2 in the 2022 Formula One season.

Verstappen picked up yet another win in the inaugural Miami race, with the two Ferraris Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz rounding out the podium places, Perez a close fourth after some power issues.

The momentum of wins and podiums for both drivers in the last two races will give Red Bull a wealth of confidence going into the Spanish Grand Prix, with their resurgence allowing them to close down Ferrari in both the Driver’s and Constructors’ Championships.

Ferrari’s Season So Far

Ferrari have also looked promising in pre-season testing, seeming to have found a good balance with the new 2022 regulations. Both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz looked quick, especially on day one and two, with Red Bull dominating day three.

Bahrain was a standout race for The Prancing Horse, with their first 1 - 2 finish since Singapore 2019. Charles Leclerc secured his third career win and first since Monza 2019 from Pole in Bahrain. Carlos Sainz came home second, partly due to the retirement of Max Verstappen on lap 54.

Despite Verstappen winning the race, Saudi Arabia was also a strong weekend for Ferrari. Leclerc finished second, with Sainz in third. The race in Jeddah was another bout of close wheel-to-wheel racing with Verstappen, culminating in the Dutchman narrowly winning out, crossing the finish line only 0.5 seconds ahead of Leclerc.

Australia was a mixed bag for The Prancing Horse, with a grand slam and a first-lap retirement. Charles Leclerc bagged his first-ever grand slam at Albert Park, where he won pole, led every lap and won the race. In fact, the Monagasque’s lead was largely uncontested, as Leclerc only faced some trouble from Verstappen at a safety car restart, but later finished the race with a 20-second buffer between him and Perez.

Sainz, on the other hand, had a poor weekend. His qualifying was hindered by a red flag caused by fellow countryman Fernando Alonso, causing Sainz to start ninth on the Sunday. The Spaniard’s misery was further compounded by a first-lap exit, where Sainz beached his Ferrari in a gravel trap.

Both Ferrari drivers had a weekend to forget in Italy, with Sainz retiring from the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix after a first lap incident with Daniel Ricciardo and Leclerc spinning into the wall, finishing in sixth. Ferrari did collect a good haul of points from the sprint race where Leclerc finished second and Sainz fourth.

Miami saw another 2 - 3 finish for The Prancing Horse, with Leclerc being unable to catch the Red Bull of Max Verstappen. Despite the Dutchman winning the race, Leclerc still leads the Drivers Championship by 19 points, however, both him and Ferrari will want victory in Spain to widen the gap on RedBull - which is only six points in the Constructor Championship.

Record in Catalunya

The Spanish Grand Prix is held at the Circuit de Barcelone-Catalunya and is one of the oldest Formula One races, first being held in 1913 and 61 times since then.

Ferrari has the better record in Barcelona by far, winning 12 of the 61 races held there. However, these wins came in 1954, 1974, 1981, 1990, 1996, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2007, 2008 and 2013. So, despite their dominance in Spain, Ferrari haven’t won in nine years and haven’t had a podium in Spain since Sebastian Vettel’s second-place finish in 2017.

Though Red Bull have only won three times in Barcelona, these have all come much more recently than Ferrari, it must be noted that the MK-based Constructor was only formed in 2005 following its purchase of Jaguar F1 Team.

Their first win in Spain came in 2010 and then in 2011 and 2016 - Max Verstappen’s first race win. In fact, there has been a Red Bull driver on the podium in Spain in every race since 2016, a statistic that gives Red Bull more drive for the coming race.
