F1 drivers are under pressure to perform every time they get behind the wheel of their cars but some are undoubtedly more in need of a strong result than others at this weekend’s Spanish GP. Amid the backdrop of Max Verstappen and Daniil Kvyat trading Red Bull places, and Nico Rosberg leaving Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel trailing in the world title battle, we asked some of the Sky Sports F1 team to pick the drivers who they feel are under the most pressure at Barcelona… TED KRAVITZHalf the grid is under severe pressure. From Daniil Kvyat, to show that Red Bull were wrong to drop him. From Jolyon Palmer, to see off the pressure from Esteban Ocon. From Lewis Hamilton, to get his championship going again. And to Sebastian Vettel because Sergio Marchionne, the Ferrari president, says he expects a win here.When is the Spanish GP and how can you watch it on Sky SportsBut the biggest pressure has to be on Max Verstappen. Red Bull have caused the disruption by changing their driver line-up and now they need the justification - and its up to Verstappen to deliver on that. Its his first weekend with a new team and new engineers, so I would say that is the biggest pressure of the weekend right there on his young shoulders. DAVID CROFTThere are 22 drivers under pressure this weekend.You cant say one is under more pressure, really, because of the environment of F1: everybody has to beat their team-mate, to produce the goods, and justify why theyre in that seat.At Renault, Jolyon Palmer is under pressure to have a really good race on a track he knows well. Kevin Magnussen knows it equally as well and can make life difficult for Jolyon.Obviously, Daniil Kvyat will be looking for a good result to boost his confidence and to put it into the back of Helmut Markos mind he could still be the man for the top team. Max Verstappen has also got to deliver now he has been promoted, while Daniel Ricciardo has got a third different team-mate at the senior team so hell be under pressure too to prove he is still the numero uno there.Spanish GP talking points Then theres Lewis Hamilton, who is under pressure because he needs a good result. But hes not driving badly, so hell continue doing what hes been doing.So the man under the most pressure is Nico Rosberg because hes the guy who is leading the championship. He is the hunted, everybody else are the hunters. Hes got a 43-point lead to defend at a race track where hell be confident of a successful weekend.The guy under the most pressure is always the one whos leading the championship - but dont discount the individual pressures that are on the other 21 drivers as well. SIMON LAZENBYIts Daniil Kvyat who is under the most pressure.Altruism and Formula 1 dont often go hand in hand and my impression, in this cut-throat world, is that Max Verstappen wouldnt have lost much sleep over whats gone on - but Kvyat is probably not particularly well rested.Whats different on the cars in BarcelonaHes certainly under pressure now. Hes probably been lying awake at night thinking about his future because hes been put in a very difficult position.Watch the Spanish GP live on Sky Sports F1.

ATLANTA -- For Ervin Santana, throwing strike after strike was even better than a no-hitter -- especially when his impressive command came in his Atlanta debut. Santana allowed only three hits over eight scoreless innings, Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs and the Braves held off the New York Mets 4-3 on Wednesday night. Santanas first 20 pitches were strikes. He threw only one ball in his first three innings. "That one was close," he said with a smile before adding "Thats all right." Santana threw a no-hitter with the Angels in 2011. "This is better than a no-hitter," he said. "When you throw strikes all the time, that means youre in control of the game." Mets manager Terry Collins said he could name only one pitcher who threw so many consecutive strikes. "(Roy) Halladays about the only guy Ive seen," Collins said. "We chased some balls out of the zone early, which helped (Santana) a little bit." The Braves bullpen almost blew a 4-0 lead in the ninth. Jordan Walden walked Eric Young Jr. and gave up a one-out single to David Wright. Craig Kimbrel walked Curtis Granderson to load the bases before striking out Lucas Duda. Juan Lagares drove in two runs with a single, and Travis dArnaud added a run-scoring single before Kimbrel fanned Ruben Tejada for his fourth save. "Im more frustrated for giving up somebody elses runs and making it close," Kimbrel said. Santana (1-0) was sharp from the start, throwing 28 strikes in his first 29 pitches. He finished with six strikeouts and no walks. He said he didnt expect to have such strong command. "Honestly, no. In the bullpen I was all over the place," Santana said. "I just stepped over the line and focused and threw strikes." Santana signed a $14.1 million, one-year contract with Atlanta after the Braves lost starters Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy to season-ending elbow injuries last month. He pitched like he belongs near the top of the rotation as he threw only 88 pitches, 65 for strikes. Zack Wheeler (0-2) allowed four runs on eight hits in five innings for the Mets. Heyward took a 0-for-22 slump into the game and was hitting only .dddddddddddd107, with three hits in 28 at-bats. He doubled his hits total with the homer and two singles in his first three at-bats. Heyward led off the first inning with an 11-pitch at-bat against Wheeler before pulling a 3-2 fastball over the wall in right-centre for his second homer. "Its a tough way to start the game, going that deep into the count and him hitting a home run, but it was a good at-bat for him," Wheeler said. "He just came out on top on that one." The Braves added three runs off Wheeler in the fifth. Evan Gattis doubled and scored on Heywards single to right field. Santana, who slapped a single to right for his fifth career hit, and Heyward scored on Freddie Freemans single. Each team had defensive highlights early in the game. In the first inning, Lagares raced back to make a leaping catch of Freemans drive at the wall, his cleat leaving a rip in the cushion. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons showed his Gold Glove form in the second. The shortstop went to his right to field a grounder by dArnaud before slipping, hopping up to one knee and throwing out dArnaud at first base, with Freeman stretching for the throw. An excited Santana pumped his fist, shouted and pointed at Simmons. Santana celebrated with another fist-pump after Heyward, sprinting toward the right-centre gap, ended the sixth by catching Wrights drive before falling on the warning track.
