The Alternative Bahrain GP Preview.

After two remarkably boring races this is just what F1 needs, a trip to Bahrain! Tilke may have an unjustified reputation for designing boring tracks and just one look at the Sakhir circuit makes you realise that his reputation for designing boring tracks is actually completely justified.

Things will be different from previous weekends though, for starters you wont be able to hear the crowd snore over the sound of the engines, not because they've turned up the engines, more to do with there not being a crowd. Praying for rain will be fairly futile, asking the divine for a sand storm might work though.

Things to look out for - Camels.

my my ty. you have got the hump..haven't you? what is wrong? you not a desert snake?

anyway, I am surprised at your tilke comment. as I have said before, if you are given a flat piece of ground and told that you must have turns of certain radii, certain straights etc etc, really there is little that you can do. have a look at cota, where undulating ground was provided, and see what a good job tilke did there.

The track in Turkey is pretty good as is Spa of course. In fact most of the old style tracks are pretty good. For me the worst is Valencia. Im always surprised not to see a forklift truck offloading a lorry during the race.

As for the actual topic - A wild stab in the dark but I reckon one of the Mercedes will win.

Marko the doctor of RB seems to be doubting even the timeframe (number of weeks) I suggested on here at the time of the first winter test that Renault will need to fix their problems, it looks like he is not willing to wait any longer.
Those on here that questioned the timeframe (number of weeks needed) that I said Renault will most probably need to fix their problems should go read Marko's ultimatum to Renault.
People will argue that improvements had been made, yes that's correct, but the job is still not complete.
