Bahrain GP 2017

With Bahrain Grand Prix approaching, here are my predictions for both qualifying and race. For the first time this year, the Mercedes drivers are expected to fill-up the front-row with Raikkonen starting 5th despite his phenomenal performance there last year. Race predictions will be updated after the qualifying.

I actually think the Ferraris will be very strong this year and may grab the pole and the victory. I hope Red Bull can also join the battle although I doubt it. Poor Alonso will at least get some confrontation since he will be allowed to race at Indy 500 later this year.

Qualifying predictions were pretty good this time! The top-8 are in the exact same order except Hamilton and Bottas! Regarding the race, it was correctly predicted that Vettel would pass both Mercedes and take the win while Lewis would jump ahead of his teammate.
