The grid hierarchy could be "shaken" by this weekend's Spanish grand prix.

Traditionally, the scene of the first race in Europe is where teams bring their first major car upgrades of the season.

"Yes, it can be shaken," Carlos Sainz, who drives for McLaren, said at a pre-race event in Madrid.

"Barcelona can change the trend of the first four races, and hopefully it will go well for McLaren and Ferrari will come a little closer to Mercedes," the Spanish driver added.
