The Spanish Grand Prix doesn't always deliver, but this race could have been a lot worse. Listen on for a recap of all the action from drivers getting great starts to almost not making the finish line.

The Race

A first corner accident, some great strategy work from the teams, and a driver trying desperately not to run out of fuel. All this and more made the racing in Barcelona a lot better than what we have seen from the Spanish track in the past.

Team by Team

McLaren knew this would be their worst track and had their fears confirmed, whilst Ferrari are buoyed by the updates, even if their reliability was at fault once again. Brawn GP reign supreme but Red Bull are still hot on their heels.
