So lets get chatting all things Bahrain! Obviously a classic race last time here in 2014, will we be treated to a similar race again?

Can Nico Rosberg get ahead of Hamilton and make up ground on him in the championship?
Can Ferrari challenge Mercedes again this weekend?
Will McLaren-Honda make it out of Q1?
Is Pastor Maldonado actually going to finish a race?

Mercedes might be in trouble. Going on a limp here and say that Ferrari has a real shot at winning this race. Only thing that worries me, is their hard tyre-pace. Red Bull's race pace seems to be alright too. Toro Rosso's however is not. I don't expect points from Verstappen.

If they could get on top of the reliability then they could really make huge strides forward :)
Looking at the speed trap data, they simply need speed...they're about 10 kph down on Williams and Mercedes.
No point having speed if you can't even complete a lap though. They aren't aiming at those teams, just beating Renault is good progress.

That must be the first time since the start of 2014 that a Mercedes has been beaten in the dry in qualifying (excluding failures etc). If Vettel shows anything like the pace he had in the race runs on Friday, he honestly has a chance at winning this. 

Rosberg pretty dismal though. No matter who is in the opposite car, a 6 tenth gap is really bad.

I'd like to see a side by side Hamilton and Rosberg quali lap EDIT: They were beaten at Austria in 2014 by Williams

I have achieved Grade A in GCSE Maths, I'm sure that matches whatever equivalent he did!

On a serious note though, good qualifying session! Can't believe it's 6 tenths between the Merc's again, same situation in Australia. I just hope Lewis can keep Seb and Rosberg behind him in the race.

If Jenson retires after one or two laps then that will surely be some new record for retiring within the first five minutes of 4 of the 5 sessions in a race weekend!

I love how you lot show a total lack of respect to rosberg, just out of interest have any of you ever achieved what he has? lol
I haven't disrespected him in anyway. I think that all F1 drivers what ever results desearve respect just by being there. Boyhood dreams and all....

and here was me thinking you were uneducated,, yeah he trumped that standard grade mathematics when he learnt 4 languages :-) lol I love the banter in here

Its all a light hearted joke. Besides this is his field and he is being comprehensively beaten in it. Well so far this year.

Yep, on Ted's Qualifying Notebook he talked about that and he actually asked Lewis about it and whether he'd now stay with Bell. He definitely had a Bell in qualifying though.  He said he was kinda experimenting between them and Arai.

yeah bet he had plenty experience experimenting with bells :-)


remember its only banter lol

What are you, 11?! :p

But I wonder how much difference the helmet actually makes, I wonder whether there's a noticable difference when he's wearing them both.
