After a surprising, in many ways, Australian GP, Formula 1 heads to Bahrain for the 2nd round of the championship. Ferrari will try to repeat the win, however this seems rather unlikely! I think everyone expects to see what the Haas drivers can do if their pit crew does its job properly! As an Alonso fan, I’m looking forward to watching him grabbing any opportunity that arises to gain positions.
The model thinks that Hamilton will qualify first. I couldn’t agree more with that! I personally think that Lewis will storm both the qualifying session and the race and will try to prove (not that he needs to) that he drives at the best of his vast abilities. It’s time for Bottas to present some opposition and we hope we have a 3-way fight at the front. The model has placed the Haas drivers much lower than what we should expect in reality. This is because they did not finish the previous race and therefore the model did not ‘see’ their strong performance.
As always, race predictions have been updated after the qualifying session.
Hamilton has received a 5 place grid penalty.
