Reasons to play the Grand Prix Attack
If you are looking for an aggressive reply to the Sicilian in order to avoid studying hundreds of lines of theory then please continuing read this guid on "How to Win the Sicilian Defense"!
White has very good control over the center of the baord and this gives attacking chances. White by played f4 move has posibilities to launch kingside attack. Usually Black's king castle short side and White checkmate him uncountless times.
White's plan is very simple, Qe1 and Qh4. Even a little child can perform it successfully. If Black don't know exactly (!) how to play then they will lose very quickly.
It's an amazing system for Blitz games. Black cannot perform a fast attack so you can make quickly a lot of accurate and correct moves; without spending much time on the opening.
The Main Ideas
This system is similar to the Closed Sicilian (g3, Bg2) but more aggressive because the light square Bishop develops on c4 or b5 creating potential problems to Black. White's idea is to control the center and with the help of the f-pawn to start a kingside attack.
The most agresive system is Bc4 because this bishop is aiming to f7 square and with the combination of the advancment f4 to f5 White can create problems to that square.
The positional aproach is Bb5 aiming to double Black's pawns on c6. Then the Bc8 will be extremely passive, Black will not be able to create any active counterattack on the center of the board, so White can continue his agresive plan on the kingside undisturbed.
