Vettel and Alonso: Last in the Thursday presser together in Australia
Spanish star Fernando Alonso will be among the drivers present in Thursday's Drivers' Press Conference in Barcelona ahead of F1's return to action this weekend, live on Sky Sports F1.
The Ferrari driver, who claimed the team's first podium finish of the season three weeks ago in China, returns to the scene of his and Ferrari's last victory 12 long months ago, the second of the 32-year-old's career at the Circuit de Catalunya.
Alonso will be joined by perennial rival Sebastian Vettel, with the quadruple World Champion likely to be asked questions about his below-par form following a run of defeats by new team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.
Maldonado is a third former Spanish GP victor in the line-up, but two years on from the Venezuelan's victory for Williams, the now Lotus driver has yet to get off the mark for his new team.
Marussia's Max Chilton and rookie duo Kevin Magnussen (McLaren) and Daniil Kvyat (Toro Rosso) complete Thursday's line-up.
Meanwhile, on Friday, five team bosses will discuss their respective team's starts to the season and the matters of the moment in F1.
