Very much agree with you, Simoc. Renault is also another major disappointment – they need to step up to allow Daniel to force through the midfield pack.

The Ferrari dilemma

Agreed, Michael. Bahrain has to be their worst performance this season for them to be fighting for podiums. On another note, you would not expect to see Nico and Daniel taking unnecessary risks while racing each other – even more when they’re on different strategies. With 4 cars running on their engines, they have significant data to analyse and evaluate to ensure that top level reliability is achieved. Here’s hoping they start FP1 next Friday in the best possible conditions and experience an incident-free weekend.

Why Bahrain must be Renault's nadir

Absolutely right, Joshua! Fair to say their pit stop strategy was duly performed. A shame that the electric component of the engine failed for Charles but he raced in a commanding manner – enough credible evidence that the Ferrari is certainly ahead this point in time. China just can’t get early enough! 🙂

Why you'd better hope Ferrari bounces back in Bahrain

I definitely completely agree with you – the repercussions of the Brexit would be massive for Formula One, given the significance of English territory since the very early days of motor sport’s pinnacle. However, I think that the current owners should consider this alarming situation as part of their negotiations for the upcoming regulations. Outsourcing or relocation might be plausible solutions.

F1's Brexit dilemma

Having watched the quali yesterday, I genuinely feel that Ferrari are on top and Melbourne was a mere accident as there might be various reasons to explain that. Testing has been very impressive and whether Mercedes have been sandbagging all along till Lewis’ last minute flying lap is irrelevant to me. They have consistently dominated the previous testing sessions, both on quali mode and long-runs. Coming back to the Scuderia, they certainly need to get a better grip on their focus throughout the weekend, sending out Sebastian yesterday with the wrong timing could have been costly and I believe that the onus is definitely on them for winning the Championship.
