The Spanish GP has been held on a number of different circuits in the past including Jarama, Jerez, Montjuich Park and Pedralbes. In 1991 however the Spanish GP moved to a new home just twelve miles north of Barcelona - the Circuit de Catalunya at Montmelo. Although the circuit wasn't due to host its first GP until 1992, a change to the F1 calendar meant that Barcelona had to be ready a year early - this resulted in many of the facilities being unfinished at the time of the event, however the circuit has always been popular with the drivers.
