2024 Spanish GP F1 Schedule: how to watch the race at Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona


After finishing the weekend in Montreal, Formula 1 is now preparing for the Spanish GP: let’s take a look at the schedule for the next Formula One weekend.

Formula One leaves cold Canada, where Max Verstappen won after a strong race ahead of an excellent Lando Norris and George Russell (the latter started from pole position). It was a weekend to forget for Ferrari, with both drivers retiring. Following the triumph in Monaco, where Charles Leclerc won, Frederic Vasseur and his team arrived in Montreal full of positivity. But it was all in vain.

The next stop on the F1 calendar will be the Spanish GP, in beautiful Barcelona: let’s discover the schedule and TV programming for the weekend together.
