    Ferrari have always been strangely better at this track than they usually are anywhere else. Was in 2016 where Vettel absolutely walked away with it at the front and everyone though the Ferrari was able to challenge the Merc until normal service was resumed next race. Whats the temps out there? Ferrari tends to get better in the heat.

    It will be very hot RasputinLives . The sort of heat that requires air conditioned everything.

    Maybe it was that race I was thinking of F1Brits_90. I knew it was a second race in a season.

    Good to see McLaren really making a step forward today. Slower that Toro Rosso, and slowest Renault powered car...

    It really is not looking good, is it.

    Magnusson has certainly found his mojo in the Haas. A very strong performance today to carry on from Australia.

    Apparently there is an emergency meeting Mclaren had to explain where all the pace went

    Bahrain GP: Ferrari on fire and McLaren's emergency meeting

    I don't want to say this appears to be a knee jerk reaction but being slower than a Toro Rosso with its former engines as well as barely escaping Q1 in front of its major investors has landed with real egg on their face:facepalm:

    Suggestions are all the senior bosses reputation are on the line from Brown, Neale and Bouillier. It seems Bouillier is the one going to take the flak if things don't improve

    I hope Kimi makes an effort to go down the inside of Vettel at the start..he should be angry after what happened in Melbourne

    True but as we know they just ruin kimi on pit strategy As the pount of no return was passed in hungary when clearly shown how they would rather finish 1st & 3rd with a vettel win than kimi wins a ferrari 1-2

    Maybe Kimi should do it and say nobody told me we weren't allowed to race or I think I deserved victory comment

    It is not like Seb would hold station if he was told to anyway:whistle:

    If Kimi wanted to be the favoured driver maybe he should have pulled his finger out at some point over the past decade?

    He's been fast for these two races, but does anyone seriously expect that to continue? Ferrari are trying to win championships.

    That is a good point because for the last few years have been quite a number of races where kimi might as well not turned up so anonymous. But then you have sympathy because the weeks when he has rolled back the years & shouldve won ferrari be crafty & secretly ruin him like monaco/Hungary 2017 & Austraila 2018. So surely times he must thought why bother he's seemingly allowed to win up until the point he can

    Hamilton was waiting his pit stop, detaining Vettel for a couple of seconds,
    to the detriment of himself and to help Bottas.
    But it is not fact that he could fight for win
