Massa: Pirelli good for F1

“I'm sure here the difference will be big on the tyres, from medium to hard, even though the degradation may be similar. Many people try to use the medium tyres as much as possible as it's a track that is very hot, [but] I think maybe you're going to see that it's race strategy which can be very important, so it will be no different here.”

With two wins already under his belt at Sakhir, Massa makes no secret of enjoying the BIC, but refused to let slip his key to a good lap.

“The secret is secret!” he smiled, “I don't know to be honest. It's a track I like to drive, since the first race, [when] I was with Sauber. It's a nice track, with a lot of long straights, heavy braking, traction. I don't know why, but I just like it.”

So... so it's good for F1 that it's attracting the vague interest of people who want to see on-track "passing" as opposed to getting the serious attention of the real racing fans who want to see some on-track passing. Hmm...

BAHRAIN F1 GP 2013 - NEW INTRIGUE? Surprise, surprise Masa has suddenly found, despite outqualifying Alonso in 4 of the last 2013 F1 GPs, that he has now lost his previous speed!? Could this be, I wonder, a new piece of shenanigans by Domenicale to weight qualifying and the race result in favour of Alonso...? Vive F1!
