    All nice shots, Just the one with the driver on fire is a little disturbing.
     
  9. I find the one with Sutil and the Dolphin more disturbing myself! :chuck:

  12. The Brawn cars test with heavy fuel loads according to the BBC F1 website. I wondered why they were so far down the board today in practice.
     
  13. Great Quali session and good to see another team on pole. This season is shaping up very nicely, and the BBC coverage just gets better.
     
  14. Here are the weights of the cars

    Pos Driver Team Weight (kg)
    1. Trulli Toyota 648.5
    2. Glock Toyota 643.0
    3. Vettel Red Bull-Renault 659.0
    4. Button Brawn-Mercedes 652.5
    5. Hamilton McLaren-Mercedes 652.5
    6. Barrichello Brawn-Mercedes 649.0
    7. Alonso Renault 650.5
    8. Massa Ferrari 664.5
    9. Rosberg Williams-Toyota 670.5
    10. Raikkonen Ferrari 671.5
    11. Kovalainen McLaren-Mercedes 678.5
    12. Nakajima Williams-Toyota 680.9
    13. Kubica BMW-Sauber 698.6
    14. Heidfeld BMW-Sauber 696.3
    15. Piquet Renault 677.6
    16. Sutil Force India-Mercedes 679.0
    17. Buemi Toro Rosso-Ferrari 678.5
    18. Fisichella Force India-Mercedes 652.0
    19. Webber Red Bull-Renault 656.0
    20. Bourdais Toro Rosso-Ferrari 667.5


    It looks like Vettel is the quickest again. Also Hamiltons McLaren-Mercedes seems quick now
     
  15. Shows what an awesome lap Trulli did over Glock then. Rosberg also did a great job. But that looks very promising for Mr Vettel.
     
  16. Gah! Rubens, what happened?

    Seems Mclaren (Lewis) is at same pace as the Brawns. :)
     
  19. It's really beginning to bunch up at the front now. Brawn, Toyota, Red Bull, Mclaren (Hamilton anyway) and Renault (Specifically Alonso) seem to be around the same pace in Bahrain anyway.
     
  20. :woot2: it starts...... have fun everybody !!
