Erm I'm still waiting for the Barcelona testing times to provide a better indication of who has the upper hand in development.

Very tight it will be, but I think Kimi will be the winner.

I'm sorry that I'm going to miss this race. I will be in Rome, therefore, I have to look try and find a bar where to see it.

Can Raikkonen keep his title lead? no doubt about this (yes)
Can Bmw maintain their stunning form? yes and don't be surprised if they win one of the next few races
Can McLaren fight back? i think Hamilton will be very fast at Barcelona
And what of the rest: Toyota, Renault and Williams ...
Surely Trulli and Rosberg are the best drivers after the top 6 (Ferrari, Bmw, McLaren)

Ferrari Drivers used the same units they had in Malaysia, even though Massa had the option of using a new one. Presumably he reasoned the Sepang unit had only done half a race distance and so he could use it in Bahrain and perhaps even use it more aggressively than Raikkonen could , so he was quicker Than kimi

No kimi was just slow in bahrain :p
i think main reason to use old engine for massa was to get fresh one for this race!
