Who are the top drivers for the 2024 Spanish Grand Prix?

Despite 2024 setting up to be another year of Max Verstappen and Red Bull dominating the rest of the grid, things at least seem a little bit more competitive than 2023. Already we’ve seen Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz break through for wins, and Ferrari is at least within striking distance in the constructors if Red Bull has a disastrous weekend. Let’s take a look at which drivers might be able to take this win away from Verstappen.

Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri: Riding off the high of a race win in Miami, McLaren’s car finally appears to be delivering on years of promise. Lando might have taken home first place, but let’s not forget that Piastri would probably have beaten him if not for an unfortunate safety car incident.

Lewis Hamilton: From a pure results standpoint, this is a hard sell, but let’s not forget we’re talking about a 7x World Champion here. Even when he hasn’t been in the best car, Lewis Hamilton always manages to pull the rabbit out of the hat and pull off an immaculate drive at least once a year. And remember, he’s won this course six times already, tied for the most all-time.

Charles Leclerc: You could easily put Leclerc's Ferrari teammate Carlos Sainz here considering he has the team's only race win of the season so far, but Charles has been the far more consistent driver over the past few weeks. Plus, it seems like he’s due for a win, with his last victory coming in Austria back in 2022.
