The Gran Premio de España Telefónica de F1 will be held at the Circuit on 20, 21 and 22 May.The 2010 season will have several novelties, such as Fernando Alonso joining Ferrari. But it won’t be the only change in the teams. There will be other protagonists, such as Jaume Alguersuari or Pedro Martínez de la Rosa. The changes in the technical regulations will force engineers to reinvent the single-seaters: they will need a bigger tank to hold the fuel for a whole race, there won’t be any Kers and the front tyres will be narrower, forcing them to reconsider the weight distribution and the suspension model.

Catalunya will be the first event in Europe after the tour that will take the championship to Bahrain, Australia, Malaysia and China, and in all probability, the teams will be bringing the definitive versions of their vehicles. There will be new teams, such as USGP, Manor GP and Campos GP, and a classic like Lotus will be back on the track.
