Did you nail the strategy at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya?

The 2023 Spanish Grand Prix was a race that lacked attrition – no retirements, no safety car periods and not a single yellow flag.
As a result, Pit Wall Predictions, presented by Gulf, saw one of its highest-scoring rounds to date, with over half of all players picking up at least 20 points.
A massive congratulations must go to the 13 players who scored full marks this weekend, earning themselves the prestigious Pit Wall Perfection badge in the process.
At the top of the leaderboard, we now have a three-way tie for P1, with a trio of hot-shot strategists all having 155 points to their name.

Pit Wall Predictions
The prediction window for this Grand Prix has now closed.

Q1: On which lap will Alex make his first stop?

Alex started the Spanish GP on the soft compound and made his first stop at the end of Lap 16, placing him in the Lap 11-20 bracket.
A whopping 75% of you predicted this correctly, as did The Strategist who had a strong weekend in Barcelona.

Q2: On which lap will Logan make his first stop?

Logan, starting from the pit lane on medium tyres, followed Alex just one lap later, also placing the American’s first stop in the Lap 11-20 window.
Fewer players scored five points here, but only slightly. 63% were correct, including The Strategist.

Q3: Which Williams Racing driver will pit first?

Albono was once again our first driver to stop, meaning our No23 has done so at five of the opening seven races.
Five more points went The Strategist’s way here, plus 62% of you playing along all across the globe.

Q4: When the first Williams Racing driver pits, what position will they pit from?

Alex had been running in P10 for the vast majority of his in-lap and had he stayed there, just 4% would have been correct.
However, Lance Stroll got by our man at T13, just before the pit entry, meaning he was P11 when he pulled into the pit lane, subsequently handing 51% of players five points.

Q5: When Alex makes his first stop, what will the gap between him and the car ahead be?

As Alex had only just been passed by Stroll, the gap between the two was very fine – 0.558s.
The Strategist kept up their streak here and 41% of PWP players were also correct.

Q6: When Logan makes his first stop, what will the gap between him and the car ahead be?

This was where our good friend The Strategist dropped points for the first time in Spain.
Logan was 1.573s behind Yuki Tsunoda when he pulled in for a set of fresh boots, placing him into the second option bracket. 15% of players scored points on this question.

Q7: How many Virtual Safety Car periods will there be?

As previously mentioned, it was a quiet afternoon at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
There was no VSC period, which 37% called correctly, including The Strategist.

Q8: How many full Safety Car periods will there be?

There had been three Safety Car periods across the last five races in Spain, but there was no need for it to appear this weekend.
This meant that 28% of players completed their scorecard with five points, but The Strategist was not one of them after they suggested it would make at least one appearance.

The Strategist’s Score: 6/8

This was a much-needed strong result for our secretive insider, solidifying themselves just 20 points off the top. They currently rank P28 with 135 points and will be looking to build on that in Canada.
