Spanish Grand Prix: Times, schedule, how to watch, weather and lap record

Formula One returns to Europe for an eagerly-anticipated triple header, commencing with the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona.

Recent races have served up some epic entertainment with as many as four teams competing for victories, but it was Max Verstappen who prevailed once again last time out as he took the chequered flag in Canada.

Red Bull are confident their RB20 package will flourish at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, though the chasing pack will hope to prove they can challenge Verstappen at any circuit.
