    F1 - Race 5 - Spain

    After another good round of qualifying, once again Red Bull took pole position for the start of the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona. Both Red Bull cars started well, with Mark Webber keeping the lead despite team mate Sebastian Vettel's attempts to pass him. Pedro de la Rosa had a nightmare race on his home track. Only managing to start 12th, due to a not so good qualifying session, he was in the pits after two laps with a puncture after being hit by another car. The damage to his car forced him to retire on lap 21. Michael Schumacher had his best race of the season so far starting 6th and finishing 4th. Felipe Massa struggled to keep pace with his Ferrari team mate Fernando Alonso, due to lack of confidence in his car which was probably the reason for his collison with Karun Chandhok on lap 25. Ferrari are going to look into the performance of both cars. Most of the drama happened in the closing laps. Sebastian Vettel was in the gravel on lap 55 and goes into the pits for a tyre change moving Alonso into 3rd. Lap 60 and Vettel gets news that his brakes are about to go! Fortunate then that he was 23.4 seconds in front of Schumacher. Most dramatic of all was Lewis Hamilton getting a puncture and ending up in the gravel on the penultimate lap.
