MONTMELO – Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg’s fight for supremacy at the top of Formula 1 is set to rage on during today’s qualifying session for the Spanish Grand Prix, with little separating the Mercedes teammates in practice earlier in the weekend.

After losing out in FP2 on Friday, Rosberg hit back on Saturday morning by finishing fastest in FP3 on the option tire ahead of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Hamilton, who ended up in second and third place respectively.

Qualifying promises to be a tight affair between our championship protagonists, given that they have all shown some kind of good pace in Barcelona so far this weekend.

This weekend’s race has marked the arrival of a number of updates to the cars in the way of new bodywork and new parts, all in a bid for the teams to move up the field. Ferrari has completely changed parts of its car, whilst Mercedes focused on quality over quantity. It appears to be working for the German marque so far.

Further back, the midfield fight in qualifying should be particularly intriguing given the progress made by McLaren, the lack of it for Lotus, the problems faced by Red Bull and Toro Rosso’s affinity for this circuit with its 2015 car.

All eyes are likely to be on Lewis Hamilton, given that he is defending a perfect pole position record in 2015. The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya has not been kind to him in the past though, and he will be giving his all to get the monkey off his back and claim just his second pole at the track.
