The 2014 Spanish Grand Prix, formally known as the Formula 1 Gran Premio de España Pirelli 2014, was a Formula One motor race that was held on 11 May 2014 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Montmeló, Spain.[1] The race was the fifth round of the 2014 season, and marked the forty-fourth running of the Spanish Grand Prix as a round of the Formula One World Championship, and the twenty-fourth running at Catalunya.[citation needed]

The Mercedes team continued to dominate the 2014 Formula One season, Lewis Hamilton winning the race after holding off a late challenge from his team mate Nico Rosberg. Daniel Ricciardo secured his first Formula One podium by finishing third (he had previously been disqualified after finishing second in the 2014 Australian Grand Prix). Sebastian Vettel's fastest lap on lap 55 in his RB10 marked the first time in the 2014 season that a car aside from a Mercedes accomplished the feat.[3]

Report[edit]

Background[edit]

As it did in the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix, tyre supplier Pirelli brought its orange-banded hard compound tyre as the harder "prime" tyre and the white-banded medium compound tyre as the softer "option" tyre.[4]
