Maybe Mclaren has a setting for the fast parts, but that new piece is quite slow, and maybe there they are not doing a good time. Probably they are just using last-year setting as reference and the circuit has change enough to make it not valid anymore. :zz:

Karun says the expectations are less, he's just getting experience, even as far as just checking the seat works. He wants to keep out of everyone's way.

Chandhok will go out but neither HRT driver will contest the last 5 or so minutes so they don't get in anyone's way

From BBC Live: Did you know that since the Bahrain Grand Prix started in 2004, every driver that claimed pole after qualifying finished on the podium on race day?
