History of Formula One racing in Spain
The first Spanish F1 Grand Prix took place in 1951 at the Pedralbes Circuit. In fact, the history of Spanish motor racing goes back much further than that: back in 1913 on a circuit just outside of Madrid.
Until 1951, the stage in Spain had gone through different times: lack of financial support, a move to a circuit on the north coast as well as the civil war.
Following the tragedy of the death of spectators at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, the Pedralbes circuit was removed from the calendar. F1 history in Spain resumed in 1967 and would regularly change venues until 1991, with the race taking place occasionally at the Circuit of Jarama or Montjuïc in Barcelona.
Since 1991, the Spanish Grand Prix has been held at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Since this event has been held, Michael Schumacher has won the Spanish Grand Prix 6 times (1995, 1996, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004).
