It what many had hoped would be an evolutionary change that didn’t reach too far, BMW’s 2008 car has secured pole position for the Bahrain Grand Prix.
In a terrific surprise, Robert Kubica, BMW’s Polish driver, has secured his first ever pole with teammate Nick Heidfeld placing 6th. BMW have methodically moved further up the competitive list and now are half way toward winning a race this season. Congratulations BMW! Formula1blog.com salutes all your hard work and efforts.
It must be said, however, that Ferrari’s Felipe Massa looks to be the quickest man in the field and should prove to be a handful during the race. Massa struggled for pole position as he was behind Nico Rosberg and Fernando Alonso with no clear track to make a run for pole. But that is Formula 1, pole is awarded to the fastest irrespective of the on-track issues and Robert Kubica is the man of the hour. The Smile on Dr. Mario’s face said it all.
