The Circuit de Catalunya at Montmelo is Barcelona’s fourth major circuit after Villafranca, Pedralbes and Montjuich Park. It was built at great expense to hold the 1991 Spanish Grand Prix in the backlash surrounding Martin Donnelly’s near-fatal accident at Jerez a year earlier. The inaugural race featured Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell going wheel to wheel the length of the long main straight as they battled for the World Championship. The Nissan corner was slowed by a temporary tyre chicane for the 1994 race, as Formula 1 struggled to address safety concerns, and has since been bypassed. Michael Schumacher is a six-time winner here including four successive victories from 2001-04. The circuit was officially renamed Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in 2013 following a sponsorship agreement with the city.
