Can Ferrari hold on to their performance at Malaysia?
Certainly. It will be another 1-2 for Ferrari if Massa can hold it together.

Can Massa finally get a good result?
Depends. He always does some spinning, but as long as he only does them in FP (luckily Ferrari has built a tank for him) and refrains from doing them in the actual race - unlike Sepang - he'll be OK.

What role is BMW Sauber going to play?
Third fiddle, same as before. Maybe they can challenge McLaren, it would be nice.

Will there be rain?
Rain? In the desert? :huh: I'll try to do a rain dance, I want rain, but I doubt it will work. :sad:

Who crash into the barriers again?
Massa is a good candidate as usual. Sutil? Toro Rosso guys, maybe? DC? Oh well, I really don't care who does it as long as it's not Alonso. :cheezy:

Should be a good one, as the track really has some good overtaking places.


they have good overtaking places, but you have to be very close to pass, so there is never much overtaking


Well, F1 is no exception to that. Yes, you have to be very close to pass. :roll::

Most of the turns leading to the long straights are relatively slow-speed ones. That makes it a bit less of an effort for the driver chasing to get closer.


Turn 9, 10 and 13 should be interesting ones for overtaking opportunities.
Before this year, it was already difficult to find braking points.
This year, it should be even more challenging with the lack of sophisticated engine braking systems.

Unless something unexpected happens, this is going to be a fairly boring race (at least for the first place). Ferraris are probably going to leave everyone else behind and decide the winner during their pit stops.

Hopefully BMW is as good or even better than in Malaysia so that we see some heavy fighting between McLaren and BMW. I seriously doubt we'll see as good/competitive Toyota in Bahrain as we saw in Malaysia.

They should. They tested thuroughly in winter, and their pace was mind blowing. :pray:

He better! Otherwise I don't think he will stick around for the spanish GP! :roll::

They have been strong in the last 2 GPs'. I can't see why they can't be strong in Bahrain as well. :shhh:

Rain at this time in Bahrain?! Absolutely positively not. :wave:

Bourdais? Rosberg? :cheezy:

I expect Ferrari 1 - 2 (KR - Massa) and Massa is instructed to target finishing the race without trying too hard. He can learn from KR' turkey race, where he just followed Massa to finish. He quoted saying "there is no point in racing your team mate." That is what is called team spirit. Kudos to KR. And Massa did same in Brasil 07, but seems not too happy about it.

-BSR


May be Massa is afraid that if he loses some space the team might push him into the role of a second fiddle to Kimi. I think Ferrari may be justified in doing that .. Kimi keeps his cool and tries to get the best what he can out of a race .. Massa doesn't seem so.

If i remember from the last race it looks a bit different when you need to overtake someone. The driver who is trying to make the pass is subjected to the turbulent air flow of the car in front of him which impedes his pace. Especially when they try to do that in a corner or a u turn or s bend the car which performs the overtaking manuovere experiences a lag allowing the car which he passed to regain his position ... But i din see this kind of an issue in the Australian GP ... Any thoughts on this ????

To an extent, the drivers will be affected by the dirty air flow coming from the driver in front.
Of course this depends on the type of circuit.
As Melbourne is made of typically second gear corners, the effect of the dirty air is not of a great concern as compared to circuits with high speed corners.

Correct me if i'm wrong though.
