    2010 Bahrain Grand Prix

    Now that Winter testing is now officially over, attention now turns to the 1st race of the 2010 F1 season.

    There's no doubt that this is one of the most keenly anticipated F1 seasons for some years because of:
     
    - the return of Michael Schumacher Smiley And the return of Mercedes Benz as more than just an engine supplier Smiley
    - the fact that there are no fewer than 4 current or former F1 World Champions in this year's driver's championship Smiley
    - the best drivers happen to be in the most competitive cars (especially Alonso moving to Ferrari & Button moving to McLaren) Smiley
    - McLaren and Ferrari appear to be quick again (after their disastrous starts to the 2009 F1 season) Smiley
    - some interesting rules changes for the 2010 season Smiley
    - a number of new teams joining the grid Smiley

    All in all, Bahrain promises to be very exciting for all the above reasons Smiley Smiley Smiley

    I hope we see much more overtaking as a result of the greater competitiveness and increased unpredictability Smiley

    Ross Brawn is targeting victory in Bahrain - he's a very smart guy and wouldn't make such a statement without good reason Smiley

    Webber is not making any predictions about the 2010 season

    http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/81817

    And Jenson Button is also pumped up for the 2010 season

    http://www.itv-f1.com/News_Article.aspx?id=47846

    Meanwhile, the rumour is that US F1 have asked the FIA if they can miss the entire 2010 season Smiley SmileySmiley

    Just browsed through the Formula1.com website launches section, and the new Lotus car and its livery gave me goosebumps - legendary British Racing Green & Yellow to race again (hopefully!)

    Re: 2010 Bahrain Grand Prix

    WOW thanks Misha!! 

    TVU player looks very promising. As for channelsurfing, will they just put a little link of F1 on that list and that's it? I cant wait to see the first practice, gotta watch every second of it.

    Atzporsche  welcome , glad to be of help .                                                                                                                                                                    TVU player is the best of three  -  only   (last season they had 2 channels , one Chinese and one Danish , so commentary in this two languages )  but pic. is very good and , almost , never freeze .

    Yes , on channelsurfing , will be at least 2 links / icons / channels for F1 . Commentary in English and Spanish , but pic. was prone to freeze .  Problem might be here , we have speed of 15 Mb/sec  in Dubai .

    Have a good connection and enjoy the new season           Smiley

    Re: 2010 Bahrain Grand Prix

    They are running rosberg on the fast setup and schumi on the "endurance" one.

    Re: 2010 Bahrain Grand Prix

    Let's see what happens when it comes to qualy. I can't imagine a half second gulf still remaining between Rosberg and Schumi.


    Re: 2010 Bahrain Grand Prix

    It seems tire degradation will be a mayor factor in the race, so a lot will come down not to which driver is the absolute fastest on this track, but rather which drivers are able to manage the right pace for the tires, and that is what most of the teems have been working on in todays practice sessions. So probably the order by which they qualify tomorrow may not have as much relation to how they reach the finish line as much as usual.

     

    Also it is said that the Sauber is really good on the tires and has less wear than the top 4 teams, so maybe they may give a surprice towards the end of the race

     

    Just hope there are no crashes in the first laps caused by overexited drivers
