Hmmm... in China, Fernando was fastest in P3, qualified 3rd and then won the race. Now in Bahrain he was fastest in P3 and has qualified 3rd...

Interesting start for tomorrow's race. I think Vettel will lead after turn 1, and after a few turns, Alonso will pass Nico. In my opinion, Nico will be lucky to be on the podium, with the tyre deg very high on the rears of the Merc. Looks to be an interesting start tomorrow, but I think its between Vettel and Alonso.

It's all set for a duel Alonso-Vettel. I'd bet for Alonso, because he's more used to drive under pressure and because Ferrari tend to improve on Sundays.

Would have loved if Lewis was in the mix at the front....
Will be great a start if Nico is able to hold on surge from Bull and the Horse till first pit stops at least.

Looks like a great race set up for both Force Indias...unless they crash within themselves..

Right, he really came through under pressure in Abu Dhabi 2010 - wait, that was Vettel!

Well he really came through under pressure in Japan 2007 ... oh, wait he didn't, did he?

But he came though under pressure in 2012, right?

The Ferrari seems to be the best car at present, which is why I think FA will win tomorrow.

Difficult day for Vettel. Ferrari will make Massa help Alonso fight Vettel. Interesting to see what strategy RB will deploy if Vettel can't move ahead quickly n stay in clean air.
