A delayed post!jenson-button-1_1391756c

Jenson Button wins third win in the initial four races at Sakhir circuit in Bahrain. Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull Racing was second. The difference between the two was that latter was stuck for most of race behind Toyota. Also, it seems like Ross Brawn has given Jenson Button has given a lot of confidence this year apart from a fast car. It now talk of every town whether Jenson Button can bring home the championship at the end of the season.

Kimi Raikkonen brought home Ferrari’s first points of the season.  Also called by Montezemolo, the morale boosting points!

Lewis Hamilton came fourth with a strong race and an impressive pace. He started using KERS optimally to go as high as second. The new found pace has made the team believe that they can win races this year and its not too late.

All the focus now shift on the verdict FIA will be giving to McLaren during mid-week!


Bahrain GP: Toyota 1-2 to make the season open!

Jarno Trulli and Timo Glock will start tomorrow’s Gulf Air Bahrain GP at 1 and 2 position respectively followed by Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull _jarno-trulli-toyotaRacing. Toyoto used their experience of pre-season practice at Bahrain and if they finish in this position tomorrow, will open the season open.

The most promising part of the qualifying was the pace of Lewis Hamilton of McLaren who split Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello of Brawn GP.

With the field catching up on double diffusers and other developments Brawn GP are feeling the heat! Much dreaded will be a double diffuser on a Red Bull car as Vettel achieved third qualifying with 10.5 kg more weight that Toyota of Jarno Trulli!!

The two Ferrari are at 8 and 10 as Felipe Massa qualified 8 and Kimi Raikkonen 10. If they aren’t able to gather a point in this race it will be their worst start ever!!!

Adrian Sutil qualified 16 but impeded Mark Webber and was handed a 3 place penalty.

The best part however is the season is open and upto developments by the time championship enter European phase.
