Who will win the Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix?

Spain's Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will host an F1 race for the 31st time since its addition to the calendar in 1991 and promises to be an intriguing spectacle.

Red Bull are still serious challengers in the world title race but Hamilton and Mercedes have worked hard to stay on top thus far.

Aussie driver Daniel Ricciardo admits he is still struggling to come to grips with his McLaren. But after a dismal qualifying performance in last week's race in Portugal, he did bounce back well to finish ninth in Portugal. He starts from seventh on the grid in Spain.

Traditionally this circuit offers little room for overtaking. With that in mind, we'll tip Hamilton to take an early lead from pole before going on to win his fifth straight Spanish Grand Prix and extend his championship lead.
