A circuit for firsts

Motor Racing - Formula One World Championship - Spanish Grand Prix - Race Day - Barcelona, Spain

While the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya has often been criticised for not producing exciting races, the Spanish Grand Prix has now provided countries with their first grand prix winner in two of the past five editions. Before Max Verstappen became the first Dutch driver to win an F1 race, Pastor Maldonado was Venezuela's first race winner in F1, driving for Williams in 2012. Like today, Kimi Raikkonen was also on the podium that day.
