MONTMELO – The three-week break following the Bahrain Grand Prix is finally set to end on Friday as Formula 1 returns with practice for the Spanish Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton enters the race weekend chasing a fourth victory of the season after making a mightily impressive start to his championship defence, picking up 93 of a possible 100 points in the first four grands prix.

However, he’ll need to be wary of both his Mercedes teammate, Nico Rosberg, and the work of Ferrari as the Italian team brings an extensive upgrade package to the race in Barcelona.
