It was an interesting race on many levels, more to comeon the podcast, but Ferrari’s Felipe Massa won the Bahrain Grand Prix.
His dominant win, which surprised me as I thought he was light on fuel, sealed a Ferrari 1,2 finish and secured teammate Kimi Raikkonen the top of the Drivers Championship. It also saw BMW’s Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld finish 3rd and 4th respectively moving BMW to the top of the Constructors championship and Nick Heidfeld into second place int he Drivers championship. A great day for BMW and Ferrari to be sure but McLaren struggled all day with Lewis Hamilton having a difficult start and running into the Fernando Alonso only to finish 13tha nd Heikki Kovalainen finishing 5th.
Also a resurgent day to remember as Toyota’s Jarno Trulli finished a respectable 6th followed by Mark Webber’s Red Bull in 7th. Mark’s teammate, DAvid Coulthard, seemed to spend more time complaining about his car than actually getting on with the program.
Be sure to listen the www.formula1blog.com podcast for all the snark and a wrap up of this weekends Grand Prix.
