Dillmann will be hoping that holding pole on Sunday proves as useful as it did on Saturday for Leimer, who duly sailed across the finish line two seconds ahead of Coletti while Alexander Rossi in his first GP2 Series race successfully held off a rapidly closing Felipe Nasr for the final podium position.
It's Fabio Leimer's second win of 2013 and his fourth in his four seasons of GP2 Series competition, and it puts him firmly at the front of this year's championship battle along with Stefano Coletti. Both of them are now locked together and tied on 54 points - already 19 points ahead of third-place man Nasr just three races into the season.
All in all it had been the perfect birthday week so far for the Swiss driver, who turned 24 on Wednesday. Can he now make it a clean sweep by storming through from eighth on tomorrow's grid to also win the sprint event? Given his form o far in Bahrain, you surely wouldn't be at all surprised if he did!
