My biggest question is who will drive alongside Lance. Will we see another Hulk appearance? Or will we see Sergio back... Because it's totally possible that he keeps testing positive for COVID for about 10 to 14 days. Depending on his recovery and maybe even more. So he might even miss the Spanish GP if he tests negative on Thursday'.
Being second is to be the first of the ones who finish ~2mm behind first...

No rain expected, temps of 28°C to 30°C. Hopefully warm temps will cause enough thermal degradation of tyres to make an interesting race.

They will wait till Friday to confirm Hulk if Perez is still testing positive. They need 2 concecutive positive results.

I have just found a website that shows a weather radar similar to the teams one. Not much use this weekend but going forward it could be of use.

So this weekend we have harder tyres and lower tyre pressures, FP1 will be worth watching to see how the teams evaluate the tyres.

70th GP in British could be one off for Mercedes. I don't expect RB to win again.

Not for the same reason maybe, but don't lose any money on it
