The 2013 Spanish Grand Prix (formally known as the 2013 Formula 1 Gran Premio de España)[1] was a Formula One motor race that was held on 12 May 2013 at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain.[2] The race was the fifth round of the 2013 season, and marked the forty-third running of the Spanish Grand Prix as a round of the Formula One World Championship, and the twenty-third running at Catalunya.

Nico Rosberg took pole position for the race, ahead of his team mate Lewis Hamilton.[3] Fernando Alonso took his thirty-second Grand Prix victory—and his second in his home race—ahead of Lotus-Renault's Kimi Räikkönen and Ferrari team mate Felipe Massa in third. Pole sitter Nico Rosberg finished sixth overall. The most notable overtaking move came on the first lap as Fernando Alonso went round the outside of both Kimi Räikkönen and Lewis Hamilton going into turn 3.[4]
