The 2016 Spanish Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 Gran Premio de España Pirelli 2016)[1] was the fifth race of the 2016 Formula One season, the 26th time the Spanish Grand Prix has been held at the Circuit de Catalunya, and the 57th Spanish Grand Prix. It was held between 13 May and 15 May 2016.

Lewis Hamilton took his second pole position at the Circuit de Catalunya ahead of his teammate Nico Rosberg, but at the start of the race, both of them crashed on the approach to Turn 4, leaving the rest of the race without a Mercedes car driving. At his first race for Red Bull, Max Verstappen took his first ever win, setting numerous records such as becoming the youngest driver and the first Dutchman to win a Grand Prix.[2] The two Ferraris joined him on the podium, with Kimi Räikkönen second and Sebastian Vettel third.
