La Fórmula Uno llegaba en el 2004 por primera vez a Oriente Medio con motivo de la organización del GP de Bahrein.

Está situado en el sur del país, en Sakhir, a 30 minutos del aeropuerto, y a unos 30 Km.de la capital del país, Manamá. Con unas instalaciones expléndidas y completas, pero en medio del desierto, lo que lo convierte al igual que Malasia, en un suplicio para los pilotos y para las mecánicas, ya que aquí, ambos necesitan refrigeración en altas dosis.

Técnicamente el circuito es interesante, pues combina adecuadamente dos largas rectas con curvas delicadas, forzando a un difícil equilibrio entre potencia y agarre, por lo que la carga aerodinámica es media. Los frenos aquí se ponen siempre al límite por el calor y la arena en la pista, sobretodo fuera de la trazada, que convierte el asfalto en una lija con poco agarre, nada bueno para las ruedas.

Bahrain GP: Preview - Haas

UralkalHaas F1 Team is poised to kick-start its 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship campaign with the Bahrain Grand Prix set to open the new season.

Last season was a challenging campaign for Uralkali Haas F1 Team and Formula 1 alike, with the world having to adapt to new rules and protocols. While the 2021 season will commence with restrictions still in place the light at the end of the tunnel is getting both closer and brighter.

The opening round marks the start of a new chapter for Uralkali Haa F1 Team with rookie drivers Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher poised to participate in their maiden grand prix.

Schumacher, supported by the Ferrari Driver Academy, joins Uralkali Haas F1 Team as the reigning FIA Formula 2 champion. He will be the third member of his family to grace the Formula 1 grid, with father Michael winning 91 races and seven world titles, and uncle Ralf victorious on six occasions. Schumacher began his assimilation with Uralkali Haas F1 Team in December 2020, partaking in FP1 at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, before running in the young driver test.

Mazepin first drove a Formula 1 car aged 17, debuting at Silverstone in 2016 with Force India, and has since tested machinery with reigning World Champions Mercedes. Now with Uralkali Haas F1 Team Mazepin will make his championship bow off the back of a runner-up position in the GP3 Series and multiple wins in Formula 2, classifying fifth in the overall standings.

Pre-season testing afforded Mazepin and Schumacher the opportunity to gather valuable experience with the VF-21. Despite the abbreviated program, with testing lasting just three days, Uralkali Haas F1 Team completed 394 laps of the Bahrain International Circuit - equating to 2132.328 kilometers (1325.022 miles) - split between Mazepin (213 laps) and Schumacher (181 laps).

The Bahrain International Circuit will act as Formula 1's curtain-raiser for the third time in history, having held the honor in 2006 and 2010, and marks a return to familiar terrain for Uralkali Haas F1 Team, with the venue hosting two championship events last fall. Uralkali Haas F1 Team has scored 24 points at the Sakhir-based track in its history, taking a strong fifth place on two occasions, 2016 and 2018. Schumacher made his Formula 1 test debut in Bahrain in 2019, with Scuderia Ferrari, and sealed the Formula 2 championship at the venue in 2020. Mazepin also has experience of the circuit, mounting the Formula 2 podium last November, having debuted at the circuit in 2019.

A lot of focus has been placed on 2022 and therefore Uralkali Haas F1 Team has modest expectations for 2021. How important is it to keep everyone motivated throughout a long campaign knowing it is going to be a challenging year?

Guenther Steiner: "I think we've got a few things to keep us motivated through the year. We've got two young drivers that we need to develop, and we will develop over the year. That will come with some excitement, I'm sure of that. Then the light at the end of the tunnel is 2022 where we will be back at our full strength because we regrouped last year and we made a step back to make two forward. For sure, some things will be challenging - also personally to keep on pushing, but I think we can do this. In the end, it's all in nine months, but it's 23 races. We are prepared for it and we'll get it done."

It's no secret that Ferrari targeted straight-line speed gains this year. How encouraging was the performance of the upgraded PU during testing?

GS: "For us it's very difficult to have a back-to-back with the power unit from last year. But I fully trust Ferrari in what they are saying to us as well as what they're doing. We can see on their car that it's better. For us, our testing was mainly focused on getting the two rookies as many laps as possible. We couldn't really do back-to-back as Mick, for example, was only in last year's car for one full day after Abu Dhabi, and Nikita only drove a Haas F1 car for the first time on our shakedown in Bahrain this year. I fully trust in Ferrari and I'm sure that the power unit is more powerful."

F1 2020 had a heavily revised calendar but this year the schedule features 23 events and a return to a more normal schedule. How much are you looking forward to getting back to regular venues?

GS: "To be honest, I didn't like last year's calendar, at least I didn't like the reason why it came to be due to the pandemic. There was a little bit of excitement though visiting new places or going to places we hadn't been in a long time. Now it appears to be more of a normal year, not completely though. Imola as the second race for example, normally that wouldn't be there, but it came back last year. It's good but hopefully the pandemic settles down or goes away completely soon and we go back to things being very normal. Normality, at the moment, is not being normal."

If you were to fast-forward to December's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix what would you regard as a successful season for Uralkali Haas F1 Team?

GS: "I would hope that our two drivers have learned as much as possible and maybe even more than that in order to get ready for next year. If we can get a point or two at some stage - that would be a fantastic result. But we are realistic, and points will be hard to come by. As long as we learn, we improve, and can get back to where we were in the past - I'm happy. It's going to be a hard climb this season, but we will get something good out of it, we always do."

Describe your experience of working with the team now you've had the off-season to prepare and the pre-season test under your belt. What has surprised you the most on the team-side moving up into Formula 1?

Nikita Mazepin: "It's been a great pleasure to be part of the team, especially in these difficult times when Covid restrictions don't allow you to be present with them face-to-face all the time. We started the year working together using virtual platforms and then obviously I was able to get to England and meet everyone. I was extremely surprised at how high the motivation is in the team despite knowing that we're going into a very difficult year. Everyone's putting in the most effort they can."

Has it sunk in yet that after all the preparation, the training, and pre-season testing - this is finally it, with Sunday heralding your first Grand Prix start?

NM: "It hasn't sunk in yet. Obviously, I'm aware it's just literally a few days away now until the lights go out and the first race is underway. It's pretty surreal because the waiting time has been very long. Hopefully everything will go smoothly, and I believe that I'm ready, so I've got nothing to be hesitant about."

How does it feel to know you'll be on the same grid as the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel? Do you view your first start in Formula 1 as both an accomplishment, in joining those illustrious names on the grid, but also just the beginning in terms of making your own mark in the sport?

NM: "To be with these big names in Formula 1, to be sharing the same starting grid, is very humbling and very surreal. I've watched these guys race on TV and I've looked up to their achievements since I was very young. I'm a big fan of the sport itself, every Sunday I used to sit down in front of the TV and watch it. To be together with them is humbling, and hopefully racing with the best I can also learn as much as possible."

Looking beyond Bahrain, and knowing the intensity of the planned 2021 Formula 1 23-race schedule - which events are you most looking forward to?

NM: "I'm aware that the intensity is very high, it's the busiest schedule that there's ever been planned in Formula 1. I'm aware it's going to be very difficult to keep the focus and keep in good shape throughout the whole year. But at this exact time, I'm so hungry for racing, and to just get started - nothing else is in my head apart from those positive thoughts."

Describe your experience of working with the team now you've had the off-season to prepare and the pre-season test under your belt. What has surprised you the most on the team-side moving up into Formula 1?

Mick Schumacher: "My experience with the team has been good. Obviously, we've had the FP1 session and the full weekend together before the test, the rookie day, in Abu Dhabi last season, which was really good. Now having had the first pre-season test with me being an official driver in the team, it's been very nice - I feel super comfortable with the team. We're working hard and I really feel everyone's super motivated. That's also then really motivating for me. I'm happy the season's getting underway now and we really start the work."

Has it sunk in yet that after all the preparation, the training, and pre-season testing - this is finally it, with Sunday heralding your first Grand Prix start?

MS: "Yes, it has sunk in. Obviously, I'm super excited about the first race in Bahrain. Thinking about it, it's thirty years since my dad started his first race, and now I'm starting mine. The fact that I'm in Formula 1 and away to be racing - it feels so amazing. I'm so happy that I'm finally there, finally able to race with everybody, and to show my potential working with a great team. I will learn and improve as a driver and as a human."

How does it feel to know you'll be on the same grid as the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel? Do you view your first start in Formula 1 as both an accomplishment, in joining those illustrious names on the grid, but also just the beginning in terms of making your own mark in the sport?

MS: "Yes, definitely. I have a lot of respect for all of them both as drivers and as people. It's going to be nice starting on the same grid as them and being amongst the top 20 drivers in the world. I'm really happy about that. I'm just really happy that things are getting underway now and I'm close to starting my first season in Formula 1."

Looking beyond Bahrain, and knowing the intensity of the planned 2021 Formula 1 23-race schedule - which events are you most looking forward to?

MS: "I'm definitely looking forward to Spa (Belgium). I think it's one of the most iconic tracks to race at. Suzuka (Japan) as well, it's a track I haven't raced at yet. I've driven a lot of laps on it in a simulator so it's definitely one of the tracks I'm most looking forward to on this calendar that I haven't raced at. Obviously, there are many race tracks that I love, such as Monza (Italy) too. I'm happy to get to all of those tracks in a Formula 1 car and feel the speed in the car. I'm happy, proud and really looking forward to it."

[/URL]Bahrain GP: Preview - Red Bull

"This is what I've been dreaming of," admits Sergio Perez, as he and Red Bull teammate, Max Verstappen look ahead to Bahrain.

How well do you understand the RB16B after pre-season testing?

Max Verstappen: I didn't mind having only 1.5 days in the car and for me the important thing was the mileage and seeing that the set-up changes we made over the test were working. You can't talk about proper limitations yet as we have only driven in hot conditions and every track needs different things, but I have a good feel for the car. From my side the car was stable enough to feel comfortable, there are always things to do better but we are always making improvements and that is what the engineers will do.

After a solid test, what can you say about your hopes for the season?

MV: For sure the test was a positive start for us and you can always be happy when you get that number of laps in and get a good understanding of the car but it doesn't say anything about pure performance. I know people are excited and think we are just saying this, but Mercedes are still the favourites - how can they not be when they have won seven world championships in a row. I'm sure Mercedes also want people to think we are the favourites and put the pressure on us but we are just focussed on ourselves. You can be sure that everyone in this Team and at Honda is pushing to beat them and anyone else who may be quick this year. I see every season as a new opportunity to beat them, but we would be stupid to expect that fight to be easy and look at testing and think we are ahead. I personally can't wait until we are all pushing in Q3, that is when you will see everyone at full power with low fuel and that is the time to see who developed performance wise and then in the race we will see who can keep that performance over a race distance. Let's hope we can be good at both!

Do you have any final words before we head to Bahrain for the first race of the season?

MV: Now I have to deliver and the Team have to deliver so we can try and mount a title fight. We all know our roles and it's good to see Honda and ExxonMobil have been pushing hard over the winter to make sure we have the best possible package in the RB16B for the season. I like the Bahrain track and it will be exciting to see our performance. It's time to see who has got what.

Now the sand has settled after pre-season testing, how do you look back on the three days in Bahrain?

Sergio Perez: It was really positive. There was a very limited amount of testing, especially considering the amount of things we have to run through and check, but I think we prepared well as a Team and I look forward to my first race with Red Bull! It's going to be a process for the first couple of races, just to learn as much as possible and to get up to speed quickly, so we can be in a good position for the season.

What did we learn about ourselves and our competitors?

SP: Overall it's early days, you know, so we will see. I think the more you try to figure out what other people are doing the more lost you can get, so there isn't a lot of point in reading into anything. We just have to wait until qualifying and see where everyone is at.

Being at a new team, how different is the feeling heading into the first round of the season? Are you nervous, excited, both?

SP: This is what I've been dreaming of. I can't wait. I'm really, really excited to see some fans at the track, to finally get to race, I'm looking so much forward to it. I'm going to approach things very relaxed and just deliver to my maximum and we'll see where we end up.

Bahrain GP: Preview - AlphaTauri

AlphaTauri drivers, Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda look ahead to this weekend's season opener in Bahrain.

Pierre Gasly: "I can't wait to go racing! It's the first time we start the season at the same track where we had three days of testing just a short time ago, which is like having extra free practice sessions. It means we have a good idea of what we need for this Sakhir track."

"The aim of the test was to understand our new car, particularly the new aero package in order to get the most out of it during the season. I'd say we had the best ever pre-season test since I joined this team: we did more laps than any other team and it was really productive. Actually, looking at all the teams, the level of performance and reliability achieved in Formula 1 is really impressive, if you compare it to winter testing from just a few years ago, when it was normal for everyone to have quite a few problems. There has been a lot of technological progress.
"We had no technical or mechanical worries, which is very encouraging. Those first laps gave me a good feeling with the car and there are a lot of positives to take away from the test. In the time since then, everyone in the team has worked very hard to prepare for the first race and I hope that pays off this weekend.

"When it comes to the effect of the new technical regulations, I'd say what we saw is that we have a little bit less grip everywhere. You don't feel a difference in terms of how the car handles and behaves and I'd say it's fairly similar to what we experienced last year - a bit worse in some places, a bit better in others. The overall balance is similar, it's just there's less grip so you are slower through the corners. But it's not a big difference. Apart from that, the first time we tested the car it gave us a baseline that worked straight away. We were able to work on fine tuning in some corners and now it's down to the engineers working mainly in the wind tunnel to push to try and find more downforce through the year. But we have a really good base from which to start the year and the car also reacts well to any changes we make to it, which is a good sign. During the test, we didn't push flat out very often, so it's hard to get an accurate picture of the improvement on the PU side, but I know what Honda has done and it was encouraging that we had zero bother on the PU over the three days, even though we did a huge number of laps. We'll get a better idea when we push harder at the first race.

"From a team point of view, it's important to have two drivers who can deliver and Yuki did a good job at the test, doing a lot of laps, which is a good sign. He made no mistakes and did everything that was asked of him. Both of us are ready to attack the season."

Yuki Tsunoda: "Making my Formula 1 debut this weekend in Bahrain is going to be a big step up from Formula 2. During the off-season, I was able to drive some older F1 cars and then we had the three-day test at Sakhir, so with all of that combined I feel I am well prepared. There has been a lot to learn, in terms of the power of the car, how effective the brakes are and, especially unique to Formula 1, how many controls and switches there are on the steering wheel. During the test, I worked on understanding how the car reacts to all the changes that can be made to it, I spent a lot of time studying the data and I feel I have made some progress. Comparing this year's car to last year's, I had a good feeling through the steering and the engine seems to have more power, but although testing went well, we won't know how competitive we are until this weekend, because in testing, everyone is running different programmes.

"I have also worked hard on my physical preparation, training every day and focusing on those areas where I saw I needed to be stronger. I am keen to see what happens in this first race. My approach to the season will be to push hard right from the start, building on my experience to find the limits of the car and I hope that, by the mid-season, it all comes together with some good results. My team-mate is very fast and experienced, and I plan to learn as much as possible from him. I am the first Japanese driver to race in Formula 1 since 2014 and I know a lot is expected of me from the Japanese fans, so I will be trying my best to make them happy. I think I'm ready!"

Bahrain GP: Preview - McLaren

Lando Norris: "It's time to go racing again and I'm really excited to be jumping back into the MCL35M and getting out on track.
"We were only out in Bahrain a couple of weeks ago for pre-season testing and looking further back it was only a few months ago since we raced there, so I'm looking forward to doing it again. I've had some good performances there during my career and it's a track I've become very familiar with. Even though we only had a few days to test, during those days and in the lead-up to this weekend we've been able to learn a decent amount about the car and do some correlation work in the simulator, which has been helpful. Of course, there's still more we can understand to extract every final bit of performance, which we'll need.

"I feel confident and ready to enter my third year in Formula 1. My aim is to keep building on my previous experience and help the team progress as much as possible. I know how hard everyone in the team has been working, both day and night, to get us prepared to go racing again and I can't thank them enough. We've got a long and challenging season ahead but hopefully we can get off on the right foot."

Daniel Ricciardo: "I'm really excited for the of start the season. It's the beginning of a new chapter, my first race in papaya and I can't wait to get started. It's also a special race with Bahrain being the team's home-from-home. In my first few months at McLaren the team has made me feel right at home in such a short space of time. I feel confident and comfortable going into the new season, which is important as I want to get the most out of the car right from race one.

"As a team we made the most of pre-season testing with some smooth running. It was great to get to grips with the MCL35M in just the few days that we had to put it through its paces. I think, naturally, it takes a bit of time to adjust to a new car, but I'm feeling prepared to hit the track come Friday. It's an exciting circuit with a few big braking zones and plenty of opportunities for overtaking. Racing at dusk is always cool and brings an added challenge to the weekend.

"This season looks like it's going to be a competitive one, but I'm looking to hit the ground running, leave nothing on the table, give it my all for the team and hopefully give the fans something to smile about."

Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "This week we kick off another exciting year of Formula 1 after a busy and productive winter for the team. Lando, Daniel and the entire team are fully focused on what will be a highly competitive and thrilling season as we aim to maintain our momentum from 2020.

"It's incredibly difficult to predict the pecking order from testing alone, so we will only really begin to see where everyone is on Sunday. What we can be certain of is an even tighter battle this season with McLaren right in the mix.

"The hard work and dedication from every single person in the team over the winter months, alongside Lando, Daniel and our Mercedes colleagues has been outstanding. A massive thanks goes to all of them alongside our partners and, of course, our brilliant fans. We're ready to hit the track in anger and excited at the prospect of closer racing, great battles and a competitive season ahead."

Bahrain GP: Preview - Aston Martin

Lance Stroll: "The arrival of Aston Martin underlines all the potential in this team; it's a very exciting moment for us all.

"We're continuing to develop as an organisation - that means we'll have more people and more resources to understand the car and how it operates; but we're still understanding how the team is growing. I don't think we were able to show our full potential during the Bahrain test, so there's definitely more performance to come during these opening races, which is exciting."

Sebastian Vettel: "It's going to be a bit of a learning curve in these first few races: for me, it's a new team - I'm still getting to know everyone, still understanding how the AMR21 wants to be driven, and familiarising myself with the team. I'm very excited to be at the start of that journey in Bahrain this weekend. The conditions were very interesting during testing - high winds made it quite tricky to drive - and we know that tyre degradation is always a key factor here. It should make for an exciting race."

• Desert winds regularly deposit sand on the circuit, so there's fairly hefty track evolution across the race weekend as the cars clear the sand and rubber-in the racing line. Pirelli brings its C2, C3 and C4 compounds to this race (Hard, Medium and Soft) - the same as last year. The track surface is particularly abrasive, so expect to see high degradation and multi-stop strategies as default. Pole position is on the left-hand side of the track - it's a relatively short 460m run from P1 down to Turn One.

• In general, passing is relatively easy at Bahrain. Excluding the opening lap and restarts, there were 53 overtakes in last year's race - and 70 per cent of those were DRS-assisted. It's the fifth-easiest track on the calendar for overtaking. Austria and Montreal top the list for most passing action; Monaco, unsurprisingly, is the hardest place to overtake. The majority of passes happen into Turn One, where a following car is assisted by a DRS zone along the straight and heavy braking into a second-gear right-hander, which offers multiple lines for attack and defence. Another popular passing spot is into Turn Four, for the same reasons (DRS assist/heavy braking).

• Safety cars are less likely at Bahrain than at many other circuits. Why? Because the huge asphalt run-offs mean cars are less likely to end up stranded on the track. However, the first race of any season always brings additional reliability worries.

Bahrain GP: Preview - Alpine

Alpine F1 Team makes its official race debut this weekend at the Bahrain Grand Prix. With a productive three-day pre-season test under the belt, Executive Director Marcin Budkowski discusses the opening round of the season.
It's the season start, how ready is the team?

Marcin Budkowski: We had a good pre-season test and we covered solid mileage without any significant reliability issues. We went through our items and, from a preparation point of view, we're in better shape than previous seasons. We have some unanswered questions on the car, though, and we are working through all the data from the test last week to improve our understanding and are planning further tests in free practice on Friday.

How will the team plan the weekend given the shorter practice sessions and the fact we're arriving at the same circuit on the back of three days testing?

MB: It's certainly unique as normally we're used to testing in Barcelona in February before going to Australia for the opening race. By the time we arrived in Barcelona in May for the race, not only does the car evolve, but the conditions are so much different. This year, however, we're returning to the same venue at the same time of the year, so we're definitely more ready for the race weekend than we would normally be at this point of the season.

Some of the tests we did last week were planned on giving us a head start for the race, especially tyre related work. We also have less time on a Friday this year - from three hours of track time to two hours - so that makes preparation work more difficult. That said, the same venue and conditions can play its tricks. During the test, the wind direction turned 180 degrees and that made a difference to car behaviour. That's something we'll keep an eye on.

How are the drivers feeling after the test heading into race week?

MB: Both drivers were positive after the test. Even if it was just three days of running, they both had exactly one and a half days each. Both Esteban and Fernando would agree they had the best preparation possible given the time allowed and they both enter race week having driven the exact same number of laps in the car, counting the shakedown. The A521 is sane, it's responding well to set up changes and we know the areas we can work on to make it quicker.

After the three-day pre-season test, Esteban Ocon is all set for this week's Bahrain Grand Prix. The talking stops, the visor goes down and the Frenchman is raring to unleash the A521 into race mode.

What will it be like to drive the Bahrain International Circuit again on the back of testing there?

Esteban Ocon: In recent months, and weeks, it's a track we've been to a lot. Obviously, we've only had a week off from testing and we're back in Bahrain for the first race, which is exciting. I think it means we'll enter the race weekend more dialled into the circuit and we'll use practice to refine things rather than find things. Testing was good for us. I left there feeling happy with how the A521 felt and how we worked as a team. We discovered some new ideas and now we have to put all that knowledge to work and execute a good race weekend.

How special is racing in Bahrain to you?

EO: I do like Bahrain. It's a circuit, which will hold some very special memories for me forever. My first Formula 1 podium there last season, even if it was on the outer layout, was very special. When I was in the paddock last week, it reminded me of that awesome night. It'd be nice to repeat it again. We'll remain realistic, though, and look to put together a strong race weekend and grab any opportunity that comes up. Anything can happen, especially the first race of the season, and we're definitely looking forward to it.

What are your first impressions of the team and the car after testing?

EO: The A521 was great and I was left feeling happy with all the things we learned and discovered about it. And I'm a big fan of the colour scheme! It was nice to work with Fernando for the first time properly. We spoke regularly over the test, gave each other comments while we were out of the car and exchanged some ideas to help drive the team. I'm looking forward to continuing the collaboration at a race for the first time, but we both know it's time to get down to business and the target is to take as many points home as possible for the Constructors' Championship.

Fernando Alonso makes his return to Formula 1 at the Bahrain International Circuit this weekend and he is more motivated than ever before.

How excited are you ahead of your first race back in Formula 1 in two years?

Fernando Alonso:[/B] I'm very excited for the entire weekend. There has been a lot of preparation for this moment, not only with the team during testing and the work done at both factories over the winter period, but also personally. Ever since I agreed to join Alpine F1 Team, I have put a lot of effort in to be both physically and mentally prepared for this season. I learnt a lot in my time away from Formula 1, especially all the different styles of racing, but I'm now back in F1 and very motivated for what should be a challenging season ahead. It was fun to be back at the wheel of an F1 car for testing, but now I can't wait to go racing.

The team covered a lot of ground during pre-season testing in Bahrain, are you feeling confident heading into this season opener at the wheel of the A521?

FA: We covered a lot of mileage during testing, which is important as it gives you something to build on for the rest of the season. We also completed most of our programme during the three days in Bahrain, so we are relatively pleased on that front. In terms of performance it's too early to tell, and I think we won't know the true pecking order of the grid until the first qualifying session on Saturday where everyone has low fuel, the fastest tyres fitted and full power from the engine. I expect there will be a few surprises.

Do you enjoy racing at the Bahrain International Circuit?

FA: It's a good track with a mixture of corner speeds and long straights. Overtaking is possible here and this means it usually provides an exciting race on Sunday. We've also covered over 2,000km during testing, so we feel well prepared for the circuit and weekend ahead. Although, as we saw during testing, the weather conditions here can have a huge impact on car performance so we are wary of that. I'm aiming for a strong first race weekend back in Formula 1.

Bahrain GP: Preview - Alfa Romeo

It wasn't long ago that the engines stopped roaring at the end of last season - and what a season it had been, full of disruption, surprises and thrills - but in a flash, the winter is gone and we are back in the sunny climes of Bahrain for the first race of the season. If it all has a feeling of dejà vu, it is because we seem to spend a lot of time here in Bahrain: by next Monday, three out of the four last F1 races will have been held in Sakhir, in addition to the three days testing on this very track less than a fortnight ago. But there is no such thing as too much of a good venue, is there?

Despite the short time span, a lot has happened since we last raced a car in anger: we are ready to take the track against new teams, new drivers, on new circuits. And yet, there is a reassuring, familiar feel within the team: Kimi and Antonio return to the cockpit, with Robert on testing duties; the faces in the garage and on the pitwall are the same; the spirit of the team remains unchanged, a family ready to take on this new season together.

The longest calendar ever awaits: it will be a test of stamina, mental and physical, between now and Abu Dhabi in December. We approach the season conscious of the challenge ahead, yet confident in our means and in the path we have taken over the break. The objective, in the words of boss, Fred Vasseur, does not change: to do better today than we did yesterday. As we open the first page of this new chapter, we're ready for the challenge.

Frederic Vasseur: "We are very excited about the start of the season - it's normal. Hopefully we will still be so after the first weekend! Jokes aside, we approach this race with confidence in ourselves: we have done a good job during testing, with excellent reliability giving us plenty of mileage, no mechanical issues and good feedback from the drivers, and we are eager to turn this positive start into a rewarding first race. The big question mark is, obviously, where we stand compared to our rivals: it's something only the track will say. We just need to give our best and have a flawless weekend, then we will assess the situation and have a clearer idea of what we can expect from the season. We expect a close fight across the whole of the midfield and we know the margins are going to be small, so we will need to extract all we can from our package: we have stability on our side, with an established line-up and no internal changes, so we need to make this advantage count."

Kimi Raikkonen: "The first race of the season is always a special moment, mostly because I have missed the racing. It's nice to be back in the car for testing, but what makes this sport fun is driving wheel to wheel and you only get that in races, so there is something to look forward to. I am not looking at the times from the three days we spent here two weeks ago, because there is no point trying to get any idea about what to expect: soon enough, on Saturday, we will have an indication of where everyone is and what kind of battles we have this year. So far, we just have to focus on our work, on improving what we had in testing and on making the most of every opportunity."

Antonio Giovinazzi: "I am really excited about the new season, my third full year in the sport. I feel ready, both in body and mind, and I can't wait to experience the feeling of a race weekend once again. I am not making any predictions on where we will be against our rivals, but I am confident we can have a good season. There is a really good spirit within the team, people are feeling positive and we're all walking with our heads held high, so we are approaching the first race with the right mindset. We all know how crucial the start of the season is: last year, we were able to score points right at the first race and they proved very important for the rest of the campaign, so the aim is to once again start with the right foot and boost the team ahead of this important year."


Bahrain GP: Preview - Pirelli

The three middle compounds from the 2021 tyre range have been chosen for this year’s season-opener in Bahrain on some of the most abrasive asphalt of the season.

C2 as the P Zero White hard, C3 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and C4 as the P Zero Red soft. This is the same nomination as last year’s Bahrain Grand Prix four months ago, but there is a new tyre construction this year for the latest cars. The 2021 cars in fact have reduced downforce compared to last year, under the most recent technical rules.

At the recent three-day pre-season test in Bahrain, teams had the entire P Zero range at their disposal, but many chose to concentrate on the three compounds nominated this weekend. With the track having been used so recently, little about it will have changed since the teams were last there: giving them a stable basis to work from.

The new tyres for 2021 have been designed to improve strength and durability, allowing them to run at lower pressures, while the actual compounds are the same as last year. During testing of the 2021 tyres last November in Bahrain, rear tyre pressure was reduced by 0.5 psi and front tyre pressure by 1.5 psi. Then, following telemetry analysis and the reduction of rear downforce in particular, rear tyre pressure was further reduced by 1.5 psi at recent test in Bahrain. This is now confirmed for the race.

The number of sets allowed per weekend is the same as last year (13) despite the there being an hour less of running, with Friday’s free practice sessions now cut to one hour each.

As was the case last year, there’s a standard allocation for every car in 2021: two sets of hards, three sets of mediums, and eight sets of softs. The nominations for every race this year have been revealed in advance.

Track Characteristics

• The Bahrain Grand Prix gets underway in the evening at 18:00 local time after sunset and is run under floodlights, with track temperatures that can fall quite rapidly once the race gets underway. This in turn affects tyre behaviour and therefore strategy.

• The asphalt (with high granite content) in Bahrain is well-known for being abrasive, increasing tyre wear and degradation. Last year’s race – which featured a red flag and multiple safety car periods – was won by Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton with a two-stop strategy: medium-medium-hard. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who finished second, was one of just two drivers to change tyres four times.

• Sakhir is all about traction and braking rather than big lateral loads. All in all, it’s classified as a medium-severity circuit in terms of demands placed on the cars.

• The third 2022 18-inch tyre test of the year (the second one with slicks) will take place for three days in Bahrain after the race from March 30-April 1. Ferrari will run on the first day, with Alpine running on the final two days.

Mario Isola: "Just four months after having two races in Bahrain, and two weeks after three days of pre-season testing, we're back there for the first race of the 2021 season. During the test we saw many teams concentrated on the compounds nominated for the grand prix, but the conditions we experienced in testing might not be entirely representative of the race.

"The teams also ran a very wide variety of different programmes during just the one condensed session, whereas in the past, with two test sessions, the second session was usually more focussed on tyres. So it's hard to draw many firm conclusions.

"With new specifications of cars and tyres, as well as the shortest pre-season in recent memory, the competition is wide open: especially given that the track characteristics of Bahrain have often resulted in interesting strategic battles, with a number of different tactics used."

So, it seems that Alpine's Rad set up, focuses on 2 large coolers along the centre line of the car.
Leaving smaller sidepods, holding just intercoolers and small rad.
With the turbo air feed looping around the side.

Then theres a flat radiator, sitting behind the engine. Either single wide one or two side-by-side. Its fed from the top roll hoop inlet.


It looks like it has exit ducting, visible through the back of the sidepods.

Algunas reacciones de los equipos tras esta primera jornada de Prácticas:

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It's been a good day again and with the heat and the wind it is not easy to find a perfect balance around the whole lap but overall I would say it was a positive day. There are still things to improve and look into for tomorrow, tyre wise and a bit of balance tuning, plus I think it will be even more windy which is a challenge for everyone in these cars. I am pretty happy with the start of the weekend but tomorrow is a different day and we have to see whether we can do it in qualifying when it counts."

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It feels great to finally get into a race weekend and I'm pleased so far with how things are going. I'm settling in well and taking some steps forwards. If I were to summarize today, I've got some work to do on the short runs as over one lap I don't quite feel the car is within me just yet and I still have to think about what the car is doing, but in the long runs I'm more comfortable and I think the pace is there so that's positive. I think we have some work to do on the soft tyre as there is also room for improvement there, but the car is performing well, we have good pace and tomorrow it will be pretty close in qualifying so we need to make sure we get it right and have a good start to the season."

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - Alfa RomeoThe first official sessions of the 2021 season came and went - and they did it so quickly. With both FP1 and FP2 being reduced to 60 minutes (from 90), on-track action benefitted as teams sought to make the most of their time.Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN had a solid day of work, with Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) and Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) finishing Free Practice 1 - the first official session of the new campaign - in P10 and P11, a very promising sign ahead of tomorrow's qualifying.


The overall team tally of 76 laps delivered plenty of data for the engineers to touch up the set-up ahead of the rest of the weekend - and that's when the real first battle of 2021 begins...


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "A regular first day in which we were able to try various things. Even though the conditions were quite different from what we experienced in testing, the feel of the car was similar, which allowed us to take up where we left off two weeks ago. We had a solid start and were able to work on the set-up. Of course, losing some time because of the incident was not ideal, but we have already so much data from testing that it wasn't a big setback. We're looking forward to seeing where we stand tomorrow: we still have to refine a few things tonight but we should be ok."

Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It was a good start to build on the positive feeling we had after testing. Today's conditions were quite different, it was way hotter in the day, but we are still happy with our pace in both the short and long runs. The field looks really tight, so we will need to put everything together to gain places in qualifying. The shorter practice sessions didn't really affect us much: in the end, we spent a lot of time in the garage in FP1 in the old system anyway so now there is a bit more action on track. We now need to go and find another bit of time with the engineers and get ready for qualifying: the target is to get into Q2 and then see what we are able to fight for."

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A reasonable first day back in the car. I think we started where we left off in testing, which is a good thing. The car has improved in some areas, which is positive, but other areas have got a little bit worse. It's been a tricky day to put it all together but on the whole I'm happy. Here and there we've got some work to do for tomorrow, but if we can put it together, hopefully we can be competitive. We seem to be very close to AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri), Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) and other cars, so tomorrow will definitely be tight, but we'll see what we can do."
Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "I thought having an hour session instead of 90 minutes meant it would be a bit easier, with less time on track - but it was pretty chaotic actually. You feel the half-hour. It goes quick. I think it was quite fortunate that we were here a couple of weeks ago, so we could hit the ground running. I think you need to make the most of that track time.


"I'm still getting there, I still want to find a few things in the car and obviously within myself. In FP2 I made some inroads, but hopefully I'll find another step tomorrow to get more where I want to be."


Andrea Stella, Executive Director, Racing: "The first day of practice for a new season is always very busy, but today was intense, with the length of the sessions reduced from 90 to 60 minutes. Happily, we didn't have any major problems. The team did a good job to ensure both our busy sessions progressed smoothly, and we completed our programme.

"The change of conditions from day to night, and the major variable of the wind always keeps it interesting in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). In addition, the field looks incredibly compact and competitive, so there's a lot of work to do to be ready for qualifying and the race - but we've started with a productive Friday."

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - MercedesValtteri finished the first session of the day in P2 with Lewis in P4. In the afternoon session, Lewis was third-fastest while Valtteri finished fifth. The team focused on long-run pace and optimising the car balance based on our learnings since last week's test session.

Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): The car wasn't where we wanted it by this weekend. It's looking better but still not perfect so we're working as hard as we can. We still have a hill to climb but we're staying positive. We thought Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) would be as fast as they are, so we know they are leading at the moment. McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) are looking great and it's good to see them taking a step. It will be interesting to see how the long runs are.

"Stability - it's all about having a stable car and being able to make the tyres last. That's going to be key in this climate and with the wind we have here.

(On the forecast of a windy Sunday)... That's not great for us! The rear is unstable as it is but I'm sure everyone will be in the same boat - some a little more, some a little less. For people at home trying to understand, when you approach a corner and the rear moves, you're trying to find that tipping point. The tipping point used to be further away with more downforce on the car - now it falls away much quicker than normal. The performance we've lost on tyres this year doesn't help but we'll work away tonight and try to find a way.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): First, the car felt better than in testing. It felt like we're still not yet there with the car balance, but it was a trouble-free day and no big issues. I think the main thing in my mind is that we have plenty of work to do if we want to fight for the pole this weekend.


Inconsistency in the balance, especially in the rear-end was one area to work on from testing and in terms of set-up approach, things improved and the car does feel better but it's not quite yet where we would want it. We still have tonight and tomorrow morning to try and figure it out.


The last long run we did was pretty difficult: I couldn't really put any laps together and the car felt nearly undrivable at times. But it's only Friday and that's why we do practice. We're definitely in the mix. McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) looked strong today, so too Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) as expected. I think we are up there - we're aren't the fastest but we're not too far off it. We'll see tomorrow.

Andrew Shovlin: We've had a productive day. The first session was a bit too hot to be representative but it was still useful for testing the changes we've made to the car since last week and we do seem to have improved the overall balance. The second session had a much cooler track which better matches qualifying and the race so we were able to focus on some single lap practice and long runs at the end. We've still got quite a bit of work to do, especially on the long runs where we didn't look strong. We need more pace and better degradation in order to be competitive but both those problems are linked to the same cause so hopefully we can make some progress overnight.

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - FerrariThe first Friday of free practice of the 2021 season saw Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow tackle a particularly busy programme, making the most of the available track time, which has been reduced by a third compared to last year. Track and weather conditions were very different to those in testing at this track two weeks ago, as can be seen from the lap times. The team worked on fine tuning the SF21, mainly with a view to the race, concentrating on tyre management.

In the first hour, which is always less relevant given the high temperatures and the sand on track, the two SF21s ran on the Soft compound tyres: Charles did 14 laps, one less than Carlos. The Monegasque's best time was a 1:31.993, while his team-mate posted a 1:32.366.

The session began at 18 local time and the team started work in qualifying trim but soon after focussed on the race, doing long runs with each driver on a different programme to acquire as much data as possible. On the Soft tyres, Carlos' best time was a 1:31.127, while Charles, who encountered traffic on his simulation run, stopped the clocks in 1:31.612. For the rest of the time, both drivers worked on tyre evaluation, to assess potential strategies for qualifying with a view to the race. Carlos did 26 laps on the Medium compound, while Charles did the same number of laps on the Softs.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "Today we had very different conditions in the first and second sessions. In FP1 everything felt fairly normal and going into FP2 the conditions changed quite a bit in terms of wind and obviously track temperature. It made the car and the balance trickier, and it brought the field together. We were surprised with how tight the short runs were in terms of performance.


"Every lap I do with the car I get to understand it a bit better, how it behaves and how it adapts to the changing conditions. It takes some time, so it was important for me to have a clean Friday and complete our programme.

Tomorrow it could be a different story again, with different conditions, especially the wind, so we need to take it step by step, building up to Qualifying."


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): Today has been a good day and maybe we didn't expect to be as competitive. Though it's still very early days for now, FP1 was positive on my side and FP2 a bit less. I've been struggling a little bit with the car rear end and didn't manage to finish the lap I wanted to, but even though overall there's still a lot of work to do I can feel there's a lot of motivation in the team and I can see and feel the improvements that have been made since last year. This is good for now.


"Tomorrow will be the day when we'll know exactly where we are compared to the others as this is when everyone will push to the limit; everything will be clear in qualifying. Even though we expect the usual cars will still be at the front, the field is very very tight and I think qualifying tomorrow will be very tight too but this is exciting and this is what we like as drivers to try and make the difference."

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team started the season-opening Gulf Air Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix weekend with a trouble-free Friday practice at the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) International Circuit.

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) ended the day in eleventh place with team-mate Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) - driving his first Friday practice since 2018 - fifteenth under the lights in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir).


New regulations for 2021 means Friday practice has been reduced from three hours to two hours, making every run crucial to the progress of the race weekend.


The first session - under scorching 35C heat - focused on a series of aero evaluations on the A521 with both drivers on Hard (C2) tyres for the early part of the day before finishing FP1 on Softs (C4).


In FP2, held in the evening, track temperature dipped by almost 15C, with both sides of the garage running the Mediums (C3) for the first time of the day and then low fuel on Softs. Esteban and Fernando rounded off their day with higher fuel runs.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It's good to be back in the car again in preparation for a race weekend. I think we've had a solid day as we made an improvement from FP1 to FP2. We've discovered a lot of things between now and testing, so it was good to carry that on during today's practice. We still need to work hard and find more details, though, and there's certainly more potential to unlock from the car. It's only Friday and we know tomorrow is when it counts. I quite enjoyed the shorter practice sessions. It means you have to focus a lot more on each run as every bit of track time counts."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was fantastic to be back in a free practice session today in Formula 1. You feel the extra adrenaline with the traffic and everything going on around you; it's very different to testing. It felt good and I felt the racing spirit each lap, which I enjoyed. We got through our programme in the first session in very hot conditions and then some long runs this evening as the track cooled for FP2. We do still need to fine tune some of the car setup and analyse the data a bit more, but, overall, I'm happy with my day."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "We did quite a lot of work today. For FP1, we tried some different settings on the car and then, this evening, the team did a good job and we were able to improve the balance of the car. I think we made a step in the second session and we improved our pace. Now it's time for us to analyse what we've done and identify the areas where we can make further improvements. We will keep looking forward as a team and continue to work. The aim is to make another further step for tomorrow's practice and get ready ahead of qualifying."

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - Aston MartinSebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It's very busy with less time in the practice sessions, but we were able to get a lot out of it. Every lap helps me get more used to the car and I'm able to find more of a rhythm. I'm still trying a lot of things and learning as I go, so I'm looking forward to going over the data and coming back tomorrow with the insights we have gained. The car was really promising in some corners and less so in others, but that's normal at this stage of the season. We will work tonight to find a more consistent balance. As you can see, the midfield is very tight and everyone is learning quickly, but I hope we will be a factor."

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was great to be back in the car today and I'm excited to get racing again. Today was the first real indication of everyone's performance and you can see that the middle of the grid is very close and competitive. It was a little tricky on track with the high winds - a bit like it was in testing at times. Today's practice sessions also reminded me just how important it is to get the little details right, so we will work hard tonight and go over all the data to find improvements where we can."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "The practice sessions are shorter for everyone this year, but the goals are the same. It's about making sure you're able to complete your performance runs and race simulations. We made progress with both of those objectives, collected a large amount of information and have learned more about the car and its characteristics. We've made progress since we were here for testing, but the conditions were quite windy in the second session, and it's still not easy to have a clear picture of where we sit in the pecking order just yet. On Sebastian's side, he had a disrupted test, so it was about getting him as much track time as possible today. The more comfortable he is with the car, the more he can push. For Lance, it was a productive day and plenty of laps completed as we head into the weekend. We still need to improve our pace over a single lap and that's one of the priorities as we prepare for final practice and qualifying tomorrow."

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I think it's been a good start to the weekend - the car felt strong in both sessions and I'm happy with it. We didn't quite put it together this evening, on our fast lap, but overall, I think there are a lot of positives to take-away from today and I'm excited now to see what we can do in qualifying tomorrow. The long run with high fuel, that we completed in preparation for the race, felt strong so I think there are some good signs but it's obviously only the first day, so we don't want to get ahead of ourselves. We'll fine-tune everything tonight with the engineers and I think we'll be in a good position for tomorrow. I hope that we can get into Q3 in qualifying - that's our target - and if we manage that we should be in a position to fight for some good points come race day."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "It's been a great day - I've experienced my first practice sessions in the car as a Formula 1 driver and it's really exciting. I think my passion has really shone through today and I'm looking forward to showing my full potential behind the wheel tomorrow in qualifying. We've got great pace this weekend as a team and I'm keen to see how I perform tomorrow in my first F1 qualifying session. I'm still learning a lot in the car and it's obviously only my first race weekend so I'm keen to not put too much pressure on myself but I'm looking forward to getting out on track for my first race and seeing what we can do."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "I'm excited to be back on track racing again - we were obviously here testing a few weeks ago but it feels completely different being here in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) for a race weekend. Due to each session only lasting an hour this season, we had a full runplan to get through. It's difficult to learn a lot from FP1 here, due to the high track temperatures being drastically different to those that we'll experience in qualifying and the race, so we focused on some aero understanding during that session. FP2 followed a normal plan - with a medium tyre run, followed by the softer compound. Both drivers put in good laps on the performance runs, which was extremely positive in more representative conditions this evening. The longer runs we completed will allow us to confirm that the data gathered during testing here is relevant for the race weekend. Unfortunately, we saw something we weren't comfortable with in the data on Yuki's car, so we called him in as a precaution, however this was just a few minutes before the end of the session so had no impact on our running. Overall, I think we had a really positive day today and I'm looking forward to qualifying tomorrow."

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - HaasThe opening round of the planned 23-race 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship began with practice on Friday at Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) International Circuit as teams prepared for Sunday's Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix.

Two 60-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - on the 5.412-kilometer (3.363-mile), 15-turn circuit made up Friday's agenda - 2021 regulations shortening each session by 30 minutes over previous seasons. FP1 was hosted under a blazing afternoon sun, with air temperature at 31 degrees Celsius (87.8 degrees Fahrenheit) and track temperature hitting 47 degrees Celsius (116.6 degrees Fahrenheit). FP2's track action, held in cooler conditions in the evening, proved a more representative session for the grid with the second practice session set under the floodlights at the same time, 6 p.m. local time, as qualifying and the race.


Mazepin and Schumacher both ran a total of 16 laps to kick start the weekend in FP1. Running an identical tire strategy, they commenced with an install lap on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium compound followed by some baseline running on the rubber. They swapped onto the Red soft tire later in the session - both setting their fastest laps in the process. Schumacher logged a 1:34.501 for 19th with Mazepin clocking a 1:34.975 lap for 20th overall.


FP2 saw Mazepin and Schumacher sample the hardest compound available this weekend, the Pirelli P Zero White tire, before heading out onto qualifying simulations armed with fresh new sets of the soft rubber. A 1:33.297 placed Schumacher 18th on the timesheet with Mazepin 20th on a 1:33.449. Both drivers ended the session on high-fuel runs - Mazepin running on used softs while Schumacher utilized his earlier hard set.


Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team ran a total of 75 laps on Friday across FP1 and FP2 - 35 by Mazepin and 40 by Schumacher.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "It was very special for me to take part in my first FP1 and FP2 sessions. That alone was very positive. On the technical side the day was quite challenging. There's been a lot of wind around, and it wasn't very consistent.

These cars, compared to Formula 2, are much more effective with the wind in a positive way and also in a negative way. The car was quite difficult at times. Being realistic, we were very fortunate with the conditions achieved on the final day of testing, they were very fast. The track today was much slower and that made driving today much more challenging - for us at least. With 23 rounds you're going to experience very different things. It's about getting the most experience banked and that's definitely happened today."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "FP1 was in really hot conditions, which was something I hadn't really experienced yet. It was cooking the tires up, and obviously the cockpit as well. But it was good for learning - understanding how the car behaves in those conditions. Moving into FP2, we knew the conditions would be completely different. Unfortunately, the wind also changed, it was something that everybody had to get used to and some people were struggling with it - so were we.

Once we got the info on how to approach the corners everything then seemed a bit better. The long run was also interesting for us, and it was more mileage for me really. I felt comfortable in the car, which is a good sign and shows that we did enough work to prepare myself to get in and be comfortable. I know there's a lot to improve from my side still, as a driver I know I have the tools to improve the lap time. I'll be working hard on myself to keep improving and keep learning."


Guenther Steiner: "Even if the results don't show it - not a bad day for us. I was pretty happy with FP1. We got all our laps in and there were no mistakes made, it was solid throughout. The feedback from the drivers was good and the car had a decent balance. In FP2 we were then struggling to find the balance with both of the guys, but that's part of the learning curve."

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - WilliamsDave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: It was hot this afternoon, meaning that the tyre performance dominated the FP1 running. Both George and Nicholas completed their programmes and had no issues with the car. The cooler evening session offered more suitable conditions for qualifying and race preparation and we were able to complete useful running on both cars despite the shorter Free Practice session format this year.

We have had a very successful day, have collected all the data we wanted and had a first proper look at a qualifying and race simulation using the race tyres for this weekend. The performance of the car is still below what we would like, but we are making progress and we are confident that we can push the car hard for the remainder of this weekend, especially on Sunday.


George enjoyed a calm and well-constructed day during which he built-up his confidence in the car, finishing with a well measured stint on the qualifying C4 tyre. Nicholas made a few changes to his car ahead of FP2, but the change of wind for the evening session dominated the balance and he found it a little difficult to recover his momentum from FP1. He will reset overnight and then use FP3 to get himself ready for the key qualifying session.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69293/drivers/66/george-russell): It was obviously tricky conditions today and I think the track temperature was up at about 48 degrees at some points in FP1, which is incredibly hot. FP2 felt pretty good and our high fuel pace was better than expected even with these gusty winds, so I was pleasantly surprised by that. Equally the wind is changing so much at the moment, which affects everybody a huge amount, but I believe our car is more sensitive to these changes. Fingers crossed it is either calm or in a favourable direction tomorrow and Sunday. I think it will be a long and tricky race, but I am looking forward to it.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It was a difficult one today. It was very tricky, and I was struggling to find the right balance with the car. We had different issues in different practice sessions. FP1 was one thing and we tried to solve it and went too far the other way. I wasn't satisfied in FP2 on the low or high fuel, so we have a lot of work to do tonight. We need to dig into the data and see what we can find.

Bahrain GP: Practice team notes - PirelliRed Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) driver Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) headed both free practice sessions today, topping the times in FP2 with the P Zero Red soft tyre. The second free practice session was run after dark in conditions that were close to those we might expect for qualifying and the race, with 29 degrees of ambient temperature and 33 on track.

The opening free practice session was run in much hotter conditions, with track temperatures peaking at 54 degrees centigrade.

With both Friday free practice sessions each reduced to one hour from this year (compared to 90 minutes last year) the teams had one hour less of running in total. This condensed their programmes, with plenty of action from start to finish and less time than before to set a flying lap time.


From the data seen so far, the performance gap between the White hard and Yellow medium tyre is 0.4 seconds per lap, while the gap between medium and soft is around 0.9 seconds per lap.


Mario Isola: "We saw two busy, exciting and very closely-matched sessions, with three teams in the top three places after each practice hour. From the perspective of the tyres, we're satisfied with the performance, which is very much what we expected with plenty of recent testing in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). Teams focussed their work on the C4 soft tyre in particular, having already collected a lot of data on the C2 and C3 compounds two weeks ago during testing. The performance gap between medium and soft is a little higher here than we initially thought, while C2 and C3 are very close. This means that all the tyres can play a key role in the race."

Formula 1 – Temporada 2021 -GP do Bahrein – como foi a Sexta-feiraOs resultados da pré-temporada realizada a 2 semanas atrás tivemos confirmação, Max Verstappen marcou o melhor tempo nas duas sessões do dia de hoje. O que não se previu foi a pouca vantagem entre os primeiros colocados entre várias equipes. Mercedes mostrou que não esta em situação terrível como se previa, o segundo lugar de Bottas na primeira sessão e a 3ªposição de Hamilton na segunda sessão dá esperanças para a heptacampeã do mundo de pilotos e construtores.

Já as esperanças se acenderam para a Mclaren, com o desempenho excelente de Lando Norris nos dois treinos livres (3º na primeira sessão e 2º na segunda sessão). Os motores Mercedes estão fazendo uma grande diferença para a melhora de desempenho da equipe de Woking. Norris ficou bem a frente de Daniel Ricciardo que já tinha avisado que precisa de algumas corridas para se sentir totalmente à vontade na equipe, depois disso, o Australiano deve começar a andar pelo menos no mesmo nível de Norris.


A Ferrari mostrou força, pelo menos já não é a carroça do ano passado, os desempenhos de Leclerc na primeira sessão e de Sainz na segunda sessão demonstram que os dois carrinhos vermelhos podem brigar por algo melhor nessa temporada. Isso se deve muito a melhora da potência dos motores Ferrari que equipam a Alfa Romeo e a Haas. O Desempenho da Haas foi um fracasso total, mas da Alfa Romeo, seus pilotos foram muito bem e apesar da batida de Kimi Raikkonen na 2ªsessão posso dizer que Kimi e Giovinazzi podem ficar otimistas com um bom resultado na prova de domingo.


A Alpha Tauri parece ter um bom carro também, Gasly se destacou nas duas sessões de treinamento ficando entre os 10 primeiros colocados e Yuki Tsunoda também fez um bom trabalho, repetindo o 7ºlugar de Gasly na parte da noite(que marcou posição na primeira sessão).


Destaques negativo para Sergio Perez que ficou bem longe da marca de Max Verstappen, a 6 décimos atrás do Holandês nas duas sessões, a esperança é que na classificação de amanhã e em ritmo de corrida o desempenho do mexicano melhore. Aston Martin e Alpine tiveram desempenhos abaixo das principais equipes. Sebastian Vettel e Fernando Alonso não tiveram destaques na sexta-feira. No caso do piloto da Alpine era de se esperar uma adaptação ao novo carro, no caso de Vettel, ele precisa de mais quilometragem para assumir a posição de primeiro piloto nas próximas corridas.

A Williams melhorou, parece ter superado a Haas, mas ainda precisa de um longo caminho para chegar a disputar posições na zona de pontuação. Essa é a missão da última colocada da temporada do ano passado sem ter marcado um único ponto.


Amanhã teremos a terceira sessão de treinamentos as 9 da manhã. Ao meio-dia teremos a classificação para formar o primeiro grid de largada do GP do Bahrein de Formula 1.

Verstappen es el más rápido en la Q1 seguido por Tsunoda y Hamilton.

A Carlos se le ha parado el motor en su última vuelta de Q1 pero ha logrado pasar el corte en 15ª posición. Alonso ha terminado 7º.

Mazepin se ha saltado el pacto que tienen los pilotos de no adelantarse al preparar la vuelta y ha adelantado a varios para trompear después provocando bandera amarilla y fastidiando la vuelta de todos los que iban detrás, como a Ocon y a Vettel.


Los eliminados en Q1 son:

18 Vettel
19 Schumacher
20 Mazepin

Carlos Sainz el más rápido en la Q2 seguido por sólo una milésima por Leclerc.

Grande también Fernando, que pasa a Q3 al finalizar 9º.

Los Alpha Tauri intentaron pasar el corte con el medio. Gasly lo logró pero Tsunoda se queda fuera.

La sorpresa es ver a Checo fuera. Le anularon la primera de sus vueltas por saltarse los límites. Pasó lo mismo que en Alpha Tauri, quisieron pasar con el medio pero solo lo logró Verstappen.

Los elimnados en Q2 son:


11 Checo

Resultados Sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
Sábado, 27 de marzo de 2021


La primera pole de la temporada se la lleva Max VERSTAPPEN, la cuarta de su carrera. Tras él y a casi 4 décimas ha terminado HAMILTON, que ve cómo esta temporada parece que no le va a ser tan sencillo conseguir poles.

La segunda línea de la parrilla la ocuparán BOTTAS y LECLERC. El monegasco saldrá con neumático blando por el medio de los tres primeros, lo que le da una oportunidad de adelantar a alguno de ellos en la salida.

La prueba de que los Alpha Tauri van bien es la 5ª posición de GASLY, y que además mañana saldrá con el neumático medio.

Los McLaren han finalizado en las dos siguientes plazas, con RICCIARDO quedando por delante de NORRIS, que compartirá línea de salida con su excompañero Carlos SAINZ. Carlos ha sido el único que no pudo mejorar en Q3 el tiempo que marcó en Q2. Creo que terminar primero en Q2 lo ha sometido a demasiada tensión. Esperemos que mañana nos regale una buena salida y una buena carrera de esas que él suele hacer.

Sorprendente la 9ª posición de Fernando ALONSO en su vuelta a la F1 y con un Alpine que no ha dado muy buenas sensaciones. Otro que nos tiene acostumbrados a buenas salidas y carreras.

La 10ª posición ha sido para STROLL.

El primero de los pilotos que podrá elegir neumático es Checo PÉREZ, que se arriesgó demasiado en Q2 con el neumático medio y le salió caro.

Declaraciones de los equipos tras la jornada del Sábado:

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - MercedesLewis qualified P2, 0.388 behind the pole-sitter Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen), with Valtteri just behind in P3. Both drivers will start the 2021 Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix on the Medium tyre.
Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Max did a great lap, nearly 0.4 is a big gap so we have some work to do! The car was feeling good in Q1 and Q2, we took until the last minute trying to find the right set-up and it felt sweet. Just at the end I couldn't get any more from it but still, it was exciting. I'm immensely proud of everyone. We've worked very hard over the last week to try and understand the package that we have. We made some steps forward but we couldn't compete with that last lap Max did. P2 puts us in a position to cause Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) trouble tomorrow.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Today was a lot better than testing. Throughout qualifying I was feeling more and more comfortable. At least we are closer to Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) than we were in testing. We have two cars to battle against one Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) tomorrow. I had to use two sets of tyres in Q1 so I only had one new set for Q3 which put me at a disadvantage. But starting from third at this track isn't bad so I'm looking forward to it. Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) seem to have more stability, particularly in the wind. We have two cars in the top three so we can definitely still fight for the win.


Toto Wolff: We are very excited to have a real fight on our hands. Six different teams in the top ten today and it's clear that simply being "good" will not be good enough this year. But in the final year of these regulations you need to push the needle further to not only beat Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) but also some of the other teams. It's just what the doctor ordered!


Andrew Shovlin: It's disappointing at the first race to be looking at a 0.4s gap to pole but at least we know the performance we need to find going forward. It's also no secret that we've been struggling with the car around this circuit; it's nowhere near as easy to work with as the W11 but everyone in Brackley and Brixworth has been working hard since the test and we've learnt a lot about the W12 and found a more predicable balance, even if we're lacking overall pace. We'd wanted to get both cars onto the medium tyre to start the race which we managed to quite safely. Valtteri was a bit compromised in the final session by having used an extra soft in the first session but overall, it was good effort by the team and drivers, and should put us in a strong position for tomorrow. It's hard to read where we are on race pace from the Friday long runs as we didn't land the car in the right window but we're fairly confident we've improved the rear grip so it will be less of a handful in the race. We might not be on pole but we have two cars at the front and an extra set of the hard tyres, so hopefully we can create some opportunities from that.

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It's a great feeling to be on pole and I haven't experienced a season start like this. After the victory in Abu Dhabi the whole Team has been pushing really hard and even more motivated. There is still no guarantee for the rest of the year but everyone here and back at the factory have done a great job to give me a car like this and they should be very proud. Honda have also been working very hard this winter, just like every year. They are flat out all of the time and like us they just want to win. It is really enjoyable working with them and they are very passionate which I like, so a big credit to Honda for the result today as they have had a great winter. After testing it is always difficult to know where you are and we really didn't know how it would be in qualifying but when you have a lap like that in Q3 and such a good feeling in the car you can be happy. We have to finish it off tomorrow but if I can have a good start I'm confident we can do a good job."
Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "Congratulations to Max and the Team on pole position as that's the perfect way to start the season. On my side I wasn't expecting to qualify in eleventh and obviously it's not an ideal start but we are making progress and I made a good step between FP3 and qualifying, it just wasn't enough. We were absolutely right to use the medium tyres in Q2 but unfortunately it just didn't pay off and I didn't deliver the lap I should have. I went wide at Turn 13 and lost a couple of tenths and the field is so tight that it knocked me out of Q3. It's a shame as the extra kilometres and comparison to Max would have helped me to progress but tomorrow is a new day and anything can happen around this track so hopefully we can make a good recovery."


Christian Horner: "It's fantastic to start the season this way, our first pole at the opening round since 2013 and Honda's first since Senna in 1991. You never really know where you are at the first race of the year when the fuel comes out and the engine modes are turned up. It was nip and tuck in Q2 and it looked like Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) had a small advantage on the medium tyre but then Max came back on the softs. Sergio was unfortunate to just miss out on making it through to Q3. He's got a huge amount of maturity and experience and he's adapting well. He's only had 1.5 days of testing and everything is very new for him in terms of how the car feels, but he will be competitive in the race tomorrow and should not be counted out. The whole Team worked tremendously hard over the winter to put us in this position and Honda and ExxonMobil have also done a stellar job for us. Tomorrow is going to be very tight and Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) have turned it up, everyone wrote them off two weeks ago and they're right up there as we expected. It will be a massive challenge for us to beat them but we're starting from the best possible place."

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - Aston MartinSebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I think it is fair to say the result today is disappointing and not what we wanted. My first lap in Q1 had quite a bit of margin for improvement, but on my second run there were two yellow flags, which made it impossible to progress to Q2. There was a yellow flag at turn one and one later in the lap too. I was just unlucky with my position on the track. On a positive note, the car felt better in qualifying and all the work we have done since testing is taking us in a good direction, so we have the potential to be faster. Even though we are not starting where we want to be, it is tomorrow that counts. Our job is to maximise all the opportunities and see what happens."
Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was a good fight out there today and it is clear that the midfield has become even closer this year because a lost tenth or two will put you in Q2. The AMR21 felt good, but we have got plenty of work ahead to keep improving and to try and push back towards the top end of Q3. I am really excited to get going for tomorrow's race because the first race is always a little bit unpredictable and exciting. We are starting inside the top 10 and with a good start, strong tyre management and well executed strategy, we can target some good points tomorrow. We just need to go away tonight, get our heads down, and keep on improving our understanding of the car."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Lance performed well and did a good job to make it into Q3 today, while Sebastian's result was out of his hands to a large extent. In Q3, our tyre strategy meant Lance was only able to run once, but 10th on the grid leaves him well placed for tomorrow and he will be in the hunt for points. Sebastian was unfortunate to come across two yellow flags on his final push lap, which ultimately cost him a place in Q2. Overtaking is possible here so we will try our best to use strategy to help Sebastian fight his way through the field tomorrow."

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) qualified 19th and 20th, respectively, for Sunday's Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix, the opening round of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship at Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) International Circuit.Both drivers saw their qualifying session end after the opening knockout round - Q1. The run plan for both cars consisted of three timed runs - three new sets of Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires at each driver's disposal. Schumacher was the first driver to post a time in the session with a 1:33.861, but on his return to the pits he was called to the FIA weighbridge - prompting the team to switch to a two-run plan to compensate for time lost. Schumacher returned later in the session to clock a best lap of 1:32.449 for 19th overall.

Mazepin was forced to abort his opening run after a tail wind lost him the rear tires on his VF-21 at turn 13. His second timed attacked netted a 1:33.273 for the rookie - which would ultimately place him 20th. Like his teammate, Mazepin was called to the FIA weighbridge on his return to the pits costing precious time. A subsequent brake-by-wire issue led to a lock-up at turn one on his last run ending any hope of an improved lap time.


Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) of Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing claimed pole position for the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix in Q3 - the Dutchman's fourth career Formula 1 pole. His fast lap of 1:28.997 beat Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) of Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) by .388 of a second.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "The conditions in qualifying were very tricky, they'd changed a lot from FP3. Obviously, the temperature had dropped down and the wind had turned around, and these Formula 1 cars are very wind-affected. I had an issue with my brake-by-wire and I locked-up on the rears at turn one. The pedal just went long, it's something we need to look into. It wasn't something I expected, and I hadn't had it happen before driving in the test here or in practice. Hopefully that won't happen tomorrow. There's still plenty to look for but this was always going to be difficult coming into qualifying."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "I enjoyed the experience a lot. In general, I was happy with my performance today, I'd say I was about 95 percent happy with my lap. I had one little moment with it where I felt I could have done better. To be honest, after having had a disruptive run, it was kind of ok. The car had felt good coming from FP3 and the communication with the team was really good. There's definitely room for improvement on my side, so I'm just looking forward to being able to get into another qualifying soon. The race is going to be interesting as we see how the cars are going to behave in windier conditions. My main focus is to learn and to gain experience and build on that for the future."


Guenther Steiner: "We were pretty happy with our performance earlier in FP3. We got everything done that we wanted to do - it was difficult circumstances with the heat, but the guys did a good job. Then in qualifying, maybe not everybody saw, but we had both cars stopped on the FIA weighbridge. We wanted to do three runs each with both cars, but the time gets very short to do them - we couldn't do all that. With Nikita, with rushing, something went wrong with his brake-by-wire setting. That's when on his third attempt he spun - his rear brakes locked up. All-in-all the result doesn't look great, but the guys now have their first qualifying under their belt. They experienced about all the issues you can have in qualifying - not least both of them getting stopped on the weighbridge, that was a new one for us. At least they know how do to that now."

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa RomeoThe predictions of pre-season turned out to be right: it's one hell of a tight field, from the front to the back of the grid. On a day when the smallest margins made the difference between an early exit in Q1 and going all the way to Q3, Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) and Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) delivered a solid performance to qualify just outside the top ten.
With their improved C41 pushing them, both drivers cleared the first obstacle, Q1, which so many times last year proved an unsurmountable hurdle. In the second segment, fighting for a place in the top ten, we were less than a tenth away from achieving the goal.


The result, with Antonio in P12 and Kimi a row behind, in P14, leaves us in an ideal position to target points in tomorrow's race. With a free choice of tyres and a long evening of racing ahead of us, we're ready to race right in the middle of this epic fight.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "Our target was to put both cars in Q2 and we did it. We even got really close to the top ten and to miss out on Q3 for less than a tenth really shows the progress we have made compared to last year. It's a good reward for the team after the good work put in over the winter. We have proven that our optimism after testing was well-founded and that we can be a lot more competitive this season. There's still a lot of work to be done, however. We need to keep fine tuning our package to be able to be consistently in the top ten and regularly fight for points, but we have definitely made some big moves in the right direction."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "Not a bad result for the first qualifying of the year: of course, it could have been a bit better, as I made a couple of small mistakes here and there in my laps, but it could have been a lot worse. We made a few changes to the car after the morning to anticipate the conditions and perhaps they didn't work as well as we expected, but we are still in a good position for the race. We'll need to see how the weather is tomorrow, do our best and see what we can get out of the race. We are confident our package is better and we can fight for a good result."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "We can be really happy with this result as tomorrow we will start just outside the top ten and with a free choice of tyres. We have a very good opportunity to achieve a good result as we saw how our performance was close to the cars ahead of us. Today helps us confirm the positive feeling we had after testing: we have improved compared to last year and we feel we can have a lot more fun this season. Our focus is now all on tomorrow: it will be tricky, especially with the wind, but we can bring home a good result. We need to put everything together - strategy, start, pit-stops - and get the maximum out of our cars, but we can definitely aim for the points."

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm really pleased with my performance today, it's one of my best Qualifying positions I've had with the team. For the first race of the year it's important for us to show some good potential for the season ahead and I think we've managed to do that today. Only using the medium tyre in Q2 was a huge risk, but we managed to make it work, and hopefully we can use this to our advantage tomorrow in the race. I'll try to make the most of the position we're starting from on the grid- I think there's clearly an opportunity for us and I will do everything possible to get as many points as I can for the team."
Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I'm a bit disappointed if I'm honest, I showed I had the pace on the medium tyre in Q1 and I felt confident with our strategy going into Q2, but I just didn't have the grip during those final laps. It's a shame to not be starting the race further up the grid but we know the race pace is there, so let's see what we can do tomorrow. I'll analyse the data tonight with my engineers, ahead of the race tomorrow, as I am continuing to learn from every lap that I complete. There are still lots of positives to take-away from today - it was my first Formula 1 Qualifying session and I'm feeling confident in the car. I think we're still in a reasonable position and have the potential to make our way forward during the race."


Jody Egginton (Technical Director): "We were fairly happy with the performance of both car's this morning - having dealt with the problem on Yuki's car overnight - and both drivers seemed happy with their cars during FP3. Qualifying takes place during cooler track conditions here in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), but both cars performed well in Q1. Yuki and Pierre completed strong laps on the soft tyre, so we decided to optimise the race-start sets, by having both cars on to the medium compound for Q2. Pierre made that work - he was one of four drivers to get through to Q3 on the mediums - however, Yuki wasn't able to extract the best from the tyre in the second session. He's put in a really good performance already this weekend, so I'm really pleased with that. Pierre had two strong runs on the soft tyre in Q3 and is starting in a good place tomorrow to pick up some great points. I'm really looking forward to the race now."

Pierre Gasly sugiu no meio dos dois pilotos da Mercedes, na terceira posição a frente de Valtteri Bottas. Sainz jr., Ricciardo e Norris completavam os 7 primeiros colocados.

Lance Stroll esperou a pista ficar vazia para entrar na pista e marca sua volta a 3 minutos no final, que rendeu a 6ªposição.

Quase ao mesmo tempo, os pilotos voltam para a última tentativa. Bottas foi o primeiro a marcar a última volta, passa a entrar na casa do 1 minuto e 29 segundos, se colocando na terceira posição no grid de largada. Hamilton chegou a tomar a pole position, mas Verstappen não só confirmou a pole como marcou 1:28.997, o único a fica na casa do 1 minuto e 28 segundos. Max abre o ano com a pole position e com a chance de largar a frente no campeonato.

Hamilton larga na segunda posição, podendo desafiar Verstappen na corrida. Na segunda fila, Valtteri Bottas com a outra Mercedes que parece estar melhor que se previa. Charles Leclerc completando a segunda fila, a Ferrari claramente melhorou em relação a temporada passada. Na terceira fila, vão largar Pierre Gasly com a Alpha Tauri que se destacou muito no final de semana e Daniel Ricciardo da Mclaren que também mostra força nesse começo de temporada.

Lando Norris ficou a 47 milésimos de Daniel Ricciardo e abre a quarta fila que terá o espanhol Carlos Sainz jr. que teve problemas no seu carro no final do Q1 e até deu sorte em ter voltado ao treino e não ter terminado o treino ali. Completou os 10 primeiros colocados, Fernando Alonso e Lance Stroll, sendo que os dois superaram muito seus companheiros de equipe na Alpine e Aston Martin.

Szafnauer said that the situation his team faced was hard to accept, especially after so much effort had been made over the winter ahead of Aston Martin's F1 return.


"I'm not happy," he said. "And when I say I'm not happy, I mean I'm not happy for our two great drivers; I'm not happy for the 500 great men and women who designed, built and are now running our new car; and I'm not happy for our sponsor-partners or our fans, either.

Seguimos con más reacciones de los equipos tras la sesión de Clasificación:

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - FerrariQualifying went well for Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow, with Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) fourth fastest and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) eighth.Saturday evening in Sakhir confirmed that work on the SF21 has produced progress in terms of performance, as can be seen in a comparison with qualifying at the last race here when neither Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) driver got to Q3. Today, both of them made the cut, in full control of the situation, so that Charles and Carlos were in the fight for the top three rows on the grid.


As has often been the case, Leclerc did a fantastic job of getting the most out of his only set of soft tyres, stopping the clocks in 1'29"678. It was good enough for fourth, under a tenth of a second off Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) in third.


Unlike his team-mate, Sainz opted to go for two runs. On used Softs he posted a solid 1'30"536, but on the second run he made a small mistake in the first sector and had to settle for 1'30"215, which put him eighth in the end.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): We know now where we are in terms of qualy pace and it's a pleasant surprise, as we didn't expect to be here, but today we need to keep our feet on the ground. It's only the first qualy of the year and it's run in very strange conditions.


I think we should be satisfied as a team with the step we made since last year, so to be so far forward on the grid feels great. I have been struggling in FP2 and FP3 as I could not find the feeling with the car but I worked quite a lot on the driving and in qualy I was actually quite confident I would be able to do the lap I wanted.


I feel confident for tomorrow but it's going to be difficult as other cars around us seem to be very strong in terms of race pace and are starting on Mediums, so it's going to be tricky to keep them behind. Also, it's not going to be easy because of the wind, but that's the same for everyone.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): A very positive day for the team. I think we can be happy with where we are. We had that very big shock in Q1, with the car turning off, but thankfully I could start it again and made it to the pits. It's not always easy to recover from that, but we managed to have a very strong Q2. I'm obviously not happy with my last attempt in Q3. I went for it, but I'm probably lacking a bit more knowledge on the car and I couldn't put together a clean lap. It is what it is.


In general, though, I'm happy. I've been improving throughout the sessions, with good pace and very few mistakes so I want to keep gaining experience with the car and building confidence on a one-timed lap.


There will be time to analyse Qualifying in depth next week, but now I want to switch my full focus to tomorrow's race. I'm looking forward to my first ever race with the team and we'll give our best to gain positions and finish as high as possible.


Laurent Mekies: A good qualifying session, with both drivers getting through to the final part: something we have not seen since Silverstone last year. Charles, Carlos and the whole team have tackled the start of the season working methodically and with determination, going into the smallest detail to get all the potential out of the package. Today, we saw the first fruits of this work and we hope to see more tomorrow, when the points are given out. We know there's still a lot of work to be done, but we cannot deny that the first real comparison with our opponents proves that our efforts seem to be going in the right direction, although a clearer picture of the hierarchy will only emerge after three or four races. Now we have to focus on preparing for what will be a long and difficult race, run in conditions that could be very different to those we have seen so far this weekend."

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - MercedesLewis qualified P2, 0.388 behind the pole-sitter Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen), with Valtteri just behind in P3. Both drivers will start the 2021 Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix on the Medium tyre.

Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Max did a great lap, nearly 0.4 is a big gap so we have some work to do! The car was feeling good in Q1 and Q2, we took until the last minute trying to find the right set-up and it felt sweet. Just at the end I couldn't get any more from it but still, it was exciting. I'm immensely proud of everyone. We've worked very hard over the last week to try and understand the package that we have. We made some steps forward but we couldn't compete with that last lap Max did. P2 puts us in a position to cause Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) trouble tomorrow.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Today was a lot better than testing. Throughout qualifying I was feeling more and more comfortable. At least we are closer to Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) than we were in testing. We have two cars to battle against one Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) tomorrow. I had to use two sets of tyres in Q1 so I only had one new set for Q3 which put me at a disadvantage. But starting from third at this track isn't bad so I'm looking forward to it. Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) seem to have more stability, particularly in the wind. We have two cars in the top three so we can definitely still fight for the win.


Toto Wolff: We are very excited to have a real fight on our hands. Six different teams in the top ten today and it's clear that simply being "good" will not be good enough this year. But in the final year of these regulations you need to push the needle further to not only beat Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) but also some of the other teams. It's just what the doctor ordered!

Andrew Shovlin: It's disappointing at the first race to be looking at a 0.4s gap to pole but at least we know the performance we need to find going forward. It's also no secret that we've been struggling with the car around this circuit; it's nowhere near as easy to work with as the W11 but everyone in Brackley and Brixworth has been working hard since the test and we've learnt a lot about the W12 and found a more predicable balance, even if we're lacking overall pace. We'd wanted to get both cars onto the medium tyre to start the race which we managed to quite safely. Valtteri was a bit compromised in the final session by having used an extra soft in the first session but overall, it was good effort by the team and drivers, and should put us in a strong position for tomorrow. It's hard to read where we are on race pace from the Friday long runs as we didn't land the car in the right window but we're fairly confident we've improved the rear grip so it will be less of a handful in the race. We might not be on pole but we have two cars at the front and an extra set of the hard tyres, so hopefully we can create some opportunities from that.

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69312/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 15th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 17th for the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix. George's posted his fastest time of the session during Q1, with a 1:31.316 to make it through into Q2 for the first qualifying session of the year. Nicholas continued to improve throughout Q1 and posted his quickest time with a 1:31.936.

Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Following a solid practice session in the heat of the afternoon, both drivers were reasonably happy with their cars and ready for the qualifying session. We knew that the tyres would behave differently in the cooler conditions of the evening and we were also conscious of the big change in wind direction. To get the most out of the Q1 session we opted to complete three runs so that each driver could get a feel for the different conditions before they attacked the final run hard and with confidence. We had mixed fortunes with the yellow flags at the end of Q1 with Nicholas being unable to use DRS on the final straight as a result, but George largely unaffected.


George completed an excellent lap and, with some drivers missing out due to the yellows, he set a time quick enough for a place in Q2. Our decision to run three times in Q1 meant that we had no new Soft tyres left, but nonetheless, making Q2 was an excellent result and we can now plan to race with the Alfa Romeos and possibly with Tsunoda. Nicky couldn't quite extract the same performance as George on this occasion, but he will start only two places back, and given his strong high fuel pace, he has an excellent chance to race with George.


The last couple of weeks in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) have been intense and busy, but the team have worked very hard and as a result achieved a creditable result today, outpacing some fundamentally quicker cars. The dedication of all those who have been in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) since the test, as well as all those who have supported from the UK, is outstanding and testament to a great team spirit.

George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69312/drivers/66/george-russell): That performance was the absolute maximum today and I am really happy. Even though we have made a step closer to the front of the field, the Alfa has made an even greater step, so I wasn't expecting to get into Q2 today. I am really pleased we managed to put a clean lap together, get the most out of it and sneak into Q2. It's going to be a tough, long race but we need to capitalise where we can and not make any mistakes.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It was tough today and I am not completely satisfied. We have been struggling all weekend to find the right balance of the car, as well as get some consistency and driveability. However, the qualifying session for me was the best the car has felt so far this weekend. The wind switched around 180 degrees and the car handled completely differently, but I still struggled out there. It will be a long and exciting race tomorrow though and we will see what we can do.

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team will line-up for tomorrow's season-opening Gulf Air Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix with Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) ninth and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) sixteenth on the grid after a bittersweet qualifying under the lights at the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) International Circuit.
On his return to Formula 1, Fernando was in inspired form to advance to Q3 and put his car in ninth on the grid for tomorrow's 57-lap race.


It was a case of misfortune on the other side of the garage as Esteban was eliminated in Q1 with a yellow flag on his second push lap ending his hopes of progressing to Q2, as he missed out by just 0.070secs.


Both drivers attempted two runs on Soft tyres in Q1: Fernando through comfortably in seventh place. In Q2, the Spaniard advanced to Q3 for the first time since the 2018 Monaco Grand Prix with a 0.045secs margin to the cut-off.
He elected to do one run on new Soft tyres in Q3, which was good enough for ninth place, 0.034secs adrift of eighth.

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It was a very disappointing qualifying on our side of the garage. Unfortunately, the yellow flag meant I had to lift off through sector two and I lost quite a lot of lap-time as a result. It's unfortunate as there was pace for a lot more today. I think as a team we've worked well all weekend during the practice sessions and had a good set-up on the car for qualifying, so it's disappointing not to show our potential. Tomorrow, we still target points. Anything can happen and we'll push hard to make up some places and comeback. The weekend is not over."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "We have to be pleased with our qualifying session today. I wasn't totally confident with the car balance in any of the practice sessions this weekend. In qualifying, though, the temperature was a lot cooler and I was able to attack and feel the car a little bit better. It was really exciting to drive these cars again with low fuel and peak performance from the tyres. Qualifying is always amazing to experience in Formula 1 and I have missed that feeling! The plan for tomorrow is to attack and score points. We'll try to make up some positions from our starting spot but we have to be wary of the cars around us as some of our competitors are starting on the Medium tyres so it will be a close race."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "We have mixed emotions after today's qualifying with Fernando in ninth and Esteban in sixteenth. On a positive side, it was nice to see Fernando going into Q3 and that's a good start to the season for him. However, it was bad luck for Esteban to not make it further than Q1 with a yellow flag hindering his second run. The potential was there for a solid team result. Tomorrow is race day and we'll try to push even more. We've made gains in each session so far this weekend, so let's see what happens when the lights go out."

Bahrain GP: Qualifying team notes - PirelliAfter a Q1 session run exclusively on the P Zero Red soft tyres, four teams - Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull), McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) and AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri) - elected to start Q2 on the P Zero Yellow medium C3 tyre. Both Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) drivers as well as Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) and AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri)'s Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) will start on this tyre tomorrow from the top 10 on the grid. Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) in the other Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) set his best Q2 time on the medium but qualified in P11, making him the first of the runners with a free tyre choice tomorrow.

All the drivers used the soft tyre for Q3 as expected, with Verstappen going fastest after the first run. He maintained his advantage during the final decisive run, putting together three fastest sectors to claim his fourth career pole. Verstappen was also fastest in every free practice session held so far.


Track conditions remained warm and dry for qualifying, with ambient temperatures of 30 degrees and track temperatures that were slightly warmer, in the region of 33 degrees.


In the past, the 57-lap Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix has proved to be one of the most strategically interesting races of the year, and this is likely to be the case again tomorrow. An incident-packed grand prix last year, with safety cars and red flags, means that there's little meaningful strategy data from last time and the teams are effectively starting from scratch. The abrasive track surface with high degradation makes a two-stopper the most likely scenario - but the exact two-stopper selected will depend on each driver's tyre availability for tomorrow.


There are many two-stop strategies that are similar in terms of overall time, but the quickest one in theory goes as follows: two stints on the P Zero Yellow medium tyre of 18 laps each, plus one central stint on the P Zero White hard of 21 laps: set to be the strategy for all those who set their best Q2 times on this tyre.


The second-quickest two-stopper instead uses all three compounds: the soft for 14 laps, the hard for 24 laps. and the medium for the final 19-lap stint.

A soft-medium-medium strategy is slightly slower: this would use the soft for 15 laps and then two sets of mediums for 21 laps each.


Another two-stopper uses two 16-lap soft tyre stints and one 25-lap hard stint (probably as the middle stint). This last strategy can be a favourable one with cooler conditions. In terms of overall time, that's similar to the above - and, as always, all permutations are possible.


Mario Isola: "Once more there was a big difference between the day and night sessions, which made the strategy and set-up calculations more complicated. There are a number of possible race strategies, depending also on the tyres each driver has available. Nonetheless, there were several teams that felt the medium tyre was the best option to start the race on tomorrow: four of the top 10 will start the race on the yellow medium C3 compound, including the top three, and this will give them more strategic options. However, there are a number of options and the cooler temperatures expected tomorrow might mix up the strategies even more. The new Formula 2 format, with two races today, were also interesting. There were some impressive runs on the soft tyre in the second race especially, as part of an alternative strategy that helped some drivers make big gains from the back of the field - influenced also by the safety car."

Bonita clasificación, sobre todo por las ganas que habia jeje La tuve que ver en diferido, hoy haré lo posible por ver la carrera pero me tienen "ensobrinao".

Mazapán está claro que, diga lo que diga, no ha cambiado, es un sobrado que viene a hacer lo que le salga de los webs, pero al estar tan atrás no se le oirá mucho, esperemos.

Fernando pues genial, desde luego no da la sensación de haberse ido, hace lo de siempre: meterse donde los demas no lo hacen por errores o no ser tan regulares. En esa Q3 "tenian" que estar Perez y Tsunoda peeeeeero....esa declaración post carrera no la veo una sobrada (una predicción mas bien) y tambien diria que la época del anti-alonsismo rampante ya pasó.

¿Hamilton no queria oposición? Pues ahi tiene, esperemos que dure eso si...

En esta pista, al menos, parece que la Unidad Motriz Honda dispone de un mejor ERS que la del fabrcante alemán Mercedes, que se han encontrado con un poco mas de 'de-rating'.

Cuando el ERS "se vacía", como el rozamiento sigue ahí a final de recta aunque vayas con el pedal a fondo, la velocidad comienza a caer. Esto se veía mucho al final de la gran recta del circuito chino de Shanghai, al final de recta, en unos autos antes otros después, se onservaba en el gráfico como las rpm estaban a tope, pero la velociad empezaba a disminuir, no permanecía constante, a la velocidad terminal.

Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 28 de marzo de 2021


Lewis HAMILTON comienza la temporada en lo más alto del podio, aunque esta victoria la ha tenido que pelear mucho más de lo habitual. Su estrategia le ayudó a conseguirla.

VERSTAPPEN se ha tenido que conformar con la segunda plaza. Después de perder la primera posición con Hamilton en la primera parada ha logrado alcanzarle y adelantarle pero por fuera de la pista, teniendo que devolver la posición.

El podio lo ha completado BOTTAS, que al final hizo una parada extra para poder llevarse la vuelta rápida.

Carlos SAINZ no ha hecho una buena salida pero su carrera ha sido muy sólida. Ha comentado que ha tenido que aprender cómo se comporta el coche en aire sucio.

Fernando ALONSO estaba teniendo una buena carrera hasta que comenzaros sus problemas de frenos, al parecer debido a una obstrucción por restos de la pista. Una lástima su abandono porque habría puntuado fijo.

Ha sido una carrera entretenida que comenzó con una vuelta extra de formación al quedarse parado Checo, que logró poner en marcha el coche para poder salir desde el pit lane, volviendo hacer una gran remontada finalizando 5º.

Esperaba otro Vettel pero este es un "error" suyo muy común y encima en directo le echaba la culpa a Ocon. Cada vez menos esperanzas de ver un resurgimiento de este piloto (ojalá me equivoque).

Carrera divertida, ojalá esta paridad en cabeza sea habitual.

GP do Bahrein – 1ªEtapa do Mundial de Formula 1 – 2021Um começo de campeonato disputado na abertura do Mundial de Formula 1. Em Sahkir, Max Verstappen era o favorito, mas Lewis Hamilton acabou levando a vitória em um grande duelo realizado na noite de Sahkir. Valtteri Bottas completou o pódio com a melhor volta da prova.
Confira a analise da corrida:
Tudo certo para o começo do campeonato, mas a 1ªtentativa de largada foi anulada, O Carro Sergio Perez apagou e ele parou na reta final do circuito, a largada foi abortada e os 19 outros pilotos tiveram que fazer uma nova volta de apresentação. Para a sorte do mexicano o carro pode ser religado e Perez acabou indo para os boxes, largar por lá mesmo.

A segunda tentativa de largada foi bem sucedida, Hamilton foi para o ataque em cima de Verstappen e Leclerc foi para o ataque em cima de Bottas. Enquanto Verstappen fica na frente de Hamilton, Leclerc acabou superando Bottas e passou a 3ªposição. Os dois pilotos da Mclaren disputavam a 6ªposição, mas a corrida teve que ter a intervenção do Safety Car devido à batida do russo Nikita Mazepin, logo nas primeiras curvas.

Após 3 voltas de duração de Satefy Car, com a retirada do carro acidentado da Haas, a relargada aconteceu na 4ªVolta, Gasly e Norris disputavam posição e acabou o piloto da Mclaren levando a melhor, já o piloto da Alpha Tauri acabou com o aerofólio dianteiro quebrado, no que provocou no comprometimento da prova do piloto francês e no acionamento de um Safety Car Virtual para retirada de destroços da pista.

Após o rápido Safety Car Virtual a prova recomeça na 5ªvolta. Bottas foi para o ataque em cima de Leclerc, a ultrapassagem aconteceu na 6ªvolta, na reta dos boxes o piloto da Mercedes recupera a terceira posição. Bem que Leclerc tentou ainda retomar a frente, mas Bottas se segurou bem do ataque do piloto da Ferrari.

Norris passou a atacar Leclerc. Ocorreram ataques em duas voltas. O Monegasco segura o primeiro ataque, mas no segundo ataque (Que acontece na 9ªVolta), Norris supera Leclerc e passa para a 4ªposição. Ao mesmo tempo, Lance Stroll passa Fernando Alonso e sobe para 7ªposição. Lá na frente, Verstappen abre 1.8 segundos de Hamilton e 6.2 segundos Bottas na terceira posição.

Fernando Alonso foi o primeiro a fazer a primeira parada nos boxes na 12ªVolta. Na volta seguinte, Norris, Leclerc, Stroll e Giovinazzi fizeram sua primeira parada.

Dos líderes, Hamilton parou na 14ªVolta, juntamente com Ricciardo, Ocon, Raikkonen e Russell. Nas voltas seguintes, o piloto da Mercedes passou a andar mais rápido que Verstappen e Bottas, ambos com os pneus desgastados fizeram as suas paradas nas voltas 17 e 18. Com isso, Hamilton passou para a liderança da prova, com Verstappen, Perez, Bottas nas 4 primeiras posições.

Sergio Perez vinha em grande recuperação, mas com pneus desgastados não pode resistir ao ataque de Valtteri Bottas que voltou a terceira posição. Chevo parou na 20ªvolta. Na parte intermediária, Vettel e Alonso proporcionam um grande pega pela 8ªposição. Mesmo sem pneus, Vettel se mostrou um adversário à altura de Fernando Alonso. Se aproveitando dessa briga, Sainz jr. superou os dois campeões mundiais ganhando a 8ªposição.

Esse grande pega acabou 2 voltas depois, o piloto da Aston Martin já tinha um desgaste excessivo e continuou caindo de posição, travando pneu como aconteceu na volta 23 até ir para a sua primeira parada na volta 25. Já Sergio Perez vinha em grande corrida de recuperação, fazendo belas ultrapassagens e com uma tática diferente já vinha na 8ªposição após superar Carlos Sainz jr.

Na entrada da 27ªVolta, Perez supera Stroll e assume a 7ªposição, mostrando uma promissora prova de recuperação para a sua estreia pela Red Bull.

Verstappen vinha tirando diferença para Hamilton. Quando os dois estavam bem próximos e prestes a começarem uma briga acabou Lewis indo para os boxes na 28ªvolta e colocando pneus duros. Na mesma volta parou o canadense Lance Stroll.

Verstappen liderava a corrida de novo. Na 31ªVolta, Bottas foi para a segunda parada, mas a parada foi desastrosa, atraso de mais de 10 segundos para trocar os pneus levou o finlandês a cair para a 5ªposição, atrás de Leclerc e Norris. A sorte do finlandês é que ambos fizeram a parada o que fez retomar a terceira posição, mas suas chances de disputar a vitória foram por água abaixo. Já para Fernando Alonso a prova acabou na volta 32, os freios deram problemas, no que obrigou o Príncipe das Astúrias a parar.

Verstappen tentava levar seus pneus o mais longe possível para usar pneus mais macios na parte final da corrida. Enquanto isso, Raikkonen passou Russell por fora na curva 5, uma bela disputa entre os dois. Apesar de toda a luta do piloto da Williams, Kimi acabou passando a 10ªposição, mas depois acabou superado por Yuki Tsunoda da Alpha Tauri.

Sainz jr. parou na 38ªVolta, Verstappen e Vettel eram os únicos com apenas 1 parada nos boxes. Perez vai para a terceira parada na 39ªVolta, voltando para a 7ªposição. Stroll chega a se aproveitar dos pneus frios do Mexicano e supera o piloto da Red Bull, mas logo Perez conseguiria recuperar a posição sobre o piloto da Aston Martin.

Verstappen foi para a sua derradeira parada e acabou colocando pneus duros, a 16 voltas do final da corrida. Não era o pneu ideal, mas só tinha esse pneu de novo a disposição de Verstappen. Hamilton voltou à liderança, com 8.2 segundos sobre Verstappen. A partir daquele momento Max teria que tirar essa margem de tempo para lutar pela vitória.

A cada volta o piloto da Red Bull vinha tirando diferença sobre o piloto da Mercedes, era o pega da corrida. A mais ou menos 10 voltas do final, Ocon é tocado por Sebastian Vettel e ambos rodaram. O tetracampeão do mundo teve total responsabilidade nessa manobra. Os dois voltam para a pista e a bandeira amarela dura pouco. Naquela altura, Verstappen já tinha reduzido a diferença de Hamilton para 4.4 segundos.

Enquanto isso, Carlos Sainz jr. superou Lance Stroll e ganhou a 8ªposição. Um pouco mais a frente, Perez passou Ricciardo e subiu para a 6ªposição.

As atenções da corrida estavam voltados para a disputa entre Hamilton e Verstappen pela vitória. Era certo que o Holandês iria chegar nessa disputa e essa disputa começou na volta 52, mas foi na volta seguinte que a corrida acabou se definindo.

Verstappen foi com tudo para superar Hamilton, por fora na curva 5 e acabou realizando a ultrapassagem, porém, essa ultrapassagem foi feita fora da pista e Verstappen teve de devolver a liderança para Hamilton. Nas voltas finais, Lewis manteve a ponta até cruzar a linha de chegada. É a sua 96ªvitória da carreira, conquistada com muito suor e provando que a Mercedes tem um carro competitivo para disputar o título, contrariando todos os prognósticos negativos na pré-temporada.

Max Verstappen acabou sem a vitória e com um frustrante 2ºlugar após dominar praticamente o final de semana inteiro. A Red Bull que tem o melhor carro nesse começo de temporada acabou não concretizando seu domínio em vitória.

Sem chances de vitória na reta final, Valtteri Bottas fez uma parada extra para ganhar o ponto da volta mais rápida na última volta, a missão foi cumprida com êxito com a volta de 1:32.090. O 3ºlugar já estava mais que garantido, apesar dos problemas que ocorreu em uma das suas paradas. Os 37 segundos atrás do vencedor é uma desvantagem irreal pelo que aconteceu na corrida.

Os três primeiros estiveram bem a frente de Lando Norris que fez uma excelente participação com seu Mclaren-Mercedes, ainda que tenha ficado longe de disputar na parte da frente acabou ficando na 4ªposição e na frente de um dos pilotos da Red Bull. Por falar nele, Sergio Perez teve uma excelente prova de recuperação, da largada nos boxes para a 5ªposição no final da prova, superando a Charles Leclerc na última voltas. O piloto da Ferrari tem um carro bem melhor do que tinha em 2020, mas ainda esta patamares abaixo das equipes favoritas e o 6ºlugar foi o máximo que se podia obter hoje.

Daniel Ricciardo em sua estreia pela Mclaren não foi tão brilhante como Norris, mas levou com competência a 7ªposição para casa e ajudou a sua nova equipe no Mundial de Construtores. Carlos Sainz jr. deixou boa impressão na sua estreia pela Ferrari, apesar de uma posição não tão brilhante como a de Leclerc. É um 8ºlugar com cara de posição promissora para esse começo de ano.

Yuki Tsunoda batalhou muito na sua estreia e sai do Bahrein com a 9ªposição que foi ganha na última volta em cima de Lance Stroll da Aston Martin, um bom começo para o filho de lawrence stroll. Kimi Raikkonen e Antonio Giovinazzi ficaram a um pé da zona de pontuação, uma pena, mas pelo menos é um alivio para ambos que tem a possibilidade de brigarem por pontos de forma decente em 2021. Giovinazzi acabou atrapalhado por uma parada desastrosa na sua primeira troca de pneus.

Esteban Ocon foi o único piloto da Alpine a terminar a prova, mas longe dos pontos e mostra que o carro não é tudo isso e o francês não disse ao que veio nesse final de semana, mas dá um desconto a atuação apagada pelo toque que ele levou do Vettel.

A corrida de Sebastian Vettel foi bem ruim, tirando o destaque na briga com Alonso, ignorou bandeira amarela na classificação, punido no grid e mal na corrida. Além do 15ºlugar, dá mostras de que vai precisar de muito mais se quiser voltar a ser o velho e bom Vettel de anos anteriores, acabou punido em 10 segundos de acréscimo no tempo final de corrida por causa do toque em Ocon. George Russell fica logo a frente de Vettel.

Mick Schumacher não teve muito o que fazer, só levou seu carro até o final e ganhou experiência na sua estreia. Pierre Gasly e Nicholas Latifi foram para os boxes e não cruzaram a linha de chegada, mas foram classificados por terem completado mais de 90% da prova.

Daqui a 3 semanas, a Formula 1 volta a se encontrar no GP de Emilia Romagna, segunda etapa do Mundial, no Circuito Enzo e Dino Ferrari em Ímola.

La vi en ingles y un momento que entrevistaron en vivo al de Aston Martin, mencionó en 5 minutos como 6 veces lo que les habia perjudicado el tema del "low rake", creo que hasta Brundle y Croft hicieron despues algun comentario chistoso sobre el tema.

Si alguien debiera estar capacitado para conocer mejor que nadie esa medida, serían los mismos técnicos del equipo Aston Martin que hasta que les vino la "inspiración" y comenzaron a poner en pista autos con un "parecido" grosero al del equipo Mercedes del año anterior, siempre habían diseñado sus autos con el concepto de "high rake" :risitas:

"Sensaciones" de los equipos después de la carrera:

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - MercedesLewis secured his 75th win for the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) F1 Team this evening with a stunning drive in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir). A slow pit-stop on lap 30 cost Valtteri the chance to fight for the win, with the Finn coming home P3 in his 80th race with the Silver Arrows.

This evening, Lewis broke Michael Schumacher's record of most laps led in F1, which previously stood at 5,111. Valtteri scored an additional point for the fastest lap of 1:32.090 on the final lap of the race.


P1 and P3 secures the 15th podium place at the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix for the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) F1 Team, a new record. This victory was Lewis' fifth in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) making him the most successful driver at this race. Russell Braithwaite, Chief Financial Officer, accepted the Constructors' trophy on behalf of the team.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Firstly, can I just say it's the first time I have seen fans in a long time, it's so good to see people out here and everyone keeping their distance and staying safe. I'm so proud of what Formula One has been able to do, to start on a normal schedule this year and wow, what a difficult race that was! Definitely by stopping early, we knew it would be difficult, but we had to cover Max and keep the track position in the lead. They have had an amazing performance all weekend, so it was going to take something pretty special to get the win tonight. We stopped for that last stint and trying to find the right balance between pushing hard and saving tyre performance for the end of the race was difficult. And Max was all over me right at the end but I just about managed to hold him off. It was one of the hardest races I've had for a while so I'm really grateful for it and massively thankful for the men and the women back at the factory and here, for continuously pushing the boundaries and never giving up, even if we do feel we're behind. But we love the challenge, I love the challenge, I love what I do.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): We lost a lot of time on the slow pit stop otherwise it was a close race with Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull). The cars were quite close on pace but if you lose 10 seconds like that, racing against Max and Lewis, you are not going to get that back. On a personal level it's not satisfying but at least as a team, we have more points than Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull). It was the right thing at the end to stop for new tyres and set the fastest lap so we have an extra point. The car was more drivable today, it was better than yesterday and we are continuing to make steps forward. Hopefully we can make further progress. We have three weeks of work ahead of us before Imola. If you had said at testing that we would have two drivers on the podium and be top of the Constructors' table after the first race, we would have taken it.


Toto Wolff: If somebody had predicted this would be the result on Sunday, I wouldn't have believed it. If you are 100% honest with yourself, we are still lacking pace in qualifying. Today we were definitely competitive, and the strategy made all the difference. We made a bold call in the beginning to take track position and the lead of the race, then at the end the racing gods were on our side. Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) was never the strongest race for Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) and they have never traditionally been the quickest out the blocks, so after today I have no doubt that they are going to be extremely difficult to beat in 2021. We have a real fight on our hands - and we're all excited about the prospect of a really close battle for these championships!


Andrew Shovlin: Days like today remind us why we do this! Everyone in Brackley and Brixworth have been working flat out since the test; we knew that we had our work cut out but today was a great reward for all the extra hours that everyone has been putting in. Our hope going into the race was that we'd be able to put Max under a bit of pressure. Lewis did that brilliantly and was able to stay within undercut range which enabled him to take the lead at the first stop. He pushed the tyres pretty hard at the start of that second stint to gain the position and we were starting to drop too early. That's what forced us to come in when we did. It was earlier than we'd have liked but Max was close enough to try and undercut Lewis so we had to make a move. A few seconds behind, Valtteri was having a strong middle stint, and although we didn't have the gap to undercut Max, we boxed at a point where we thought they may be afraid to go to the end and wondered if they would let us undercut them and take P2.


Unfortunately, we had a problem at the stop and lost precious seconds and places which prevented Valtteri from being in the mix at the end, but it also allowed Max to offset his strategy to Lewis. Honestly, once that had happened, we didn't think we'd win, but Lewis did an amazing job with the tyre management and defending. We're well aware this championship will be close so when we had an opportunity to go for fastest lap with Valtteri we took it, earning him and the team the extra point. It's great to walk away from here leading the championship but we're under no illusions that this will anything other than an incredibly difficult championship to win. We've made good progress in the last week or so, but Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) have the better package at the moment and if we don't improve, our lead may be short-lived.

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - Red Bull

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "We definitely made good steps forward today but it's of course a shame not to get the win. We were having to manage a couple of issues throughout the race which I had to drive around so we will have to look into that but there are positives to take from today and the whole weekend. Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) did the undercut but we stuck to our strategy which was working fine, the problem is that with these cars, it's so hard to pass and once you have that track position it's pretty powerful. As soon as I got close enough to Lewis I had one shot and I just went outside of the track at Turn 4 so I gave the position back, but by then my tyres weren't in a good state anymore to put the pressure on. We have to look at the positives, we are taking the fight to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and I think that's great, it's good to start the season this way and we managed to score some good points for the Team. We will analyse what we can do better as there are always things you can improve and it's great to get Honda's 200th podium this weekend. Now it's full focus on the next race."

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "Considering my race almost didn't happen today, I think overall we can be pleased with today and take away the positives as the pace was really good and the potential is there. On the formation lap, all of a sudden the car shut down and I was so close to jumping out but I stayed in and somehow the car got going again which was a miracle really. That meant we had to start from the pit lane which wasn't ideal but we managed to recover and I was just happy to complete the race and get that important mileage under my belt. It was really important to get that and of course it is a shame that Max didn't win the race for the Team but it will come I'm sure and we will get there. We've got a lot of data to analyse now so that we understand everything and make sure we come back stronger at the next race in Imola."


Christian Horner, Team Principal: "First of all, congratulations to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), it was a great race today. We are all racers in this Team and to lose by such a small margin obviously hurts but the positive is that we have put in a strong performance all weekend and pushed Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) all the way. Max was nursing an issue from early on, how much of an affect that had during the race I'm not sure but he drove his heart out as always and we can't ask for anything more than that. He got the pass done to re-gain the lead but ran out wide and was instructed to give the place back, which he did immediately and then he pushed Lewis to the line. Hats off to Sergio as well in what was a great comeback drive for him, especially after starting in the pit lane. He kept a cool calm head after the issue on the Formation Lap and was able to deliver a strong points haul. I think the biggest winner today is the fans, this race sets up a great season and I really hope we see Lewis and Max have many more battles. The fact that we've been so competitive this weekend is a good signal for the championship. If we're frustrated with second place, then that's not a bad place to be and shows the determination within the Team. We're certainly in the fight and ready to take on the season."

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Very happy. A good result not just for myself but for us as a team. A good amount of points for this first weekend, I stayed out of trouble and I'm very happy. It's encouraging that we were able to fight with pure pace. It's a good start - big thanks to the team here and everyone back at the MTC."
Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "First one down! I think overall it's been a good weekend. We can't complain with that result. I think from the team's perspective as well it's good to hit the road with fourth and seventh. I think there's plenty to learn from. I wasn't that impressed with my race. We couldn't find the pace, so every time I tried to get a bit more out of it, it wasn't really there - but I think there's plenty to take from the race, plenty to learn from. If what I felt was an okay race ended with a P7, we're looking alright. We'll take the positives and learn from the data. Overall, a good weekend for the whole team, and a good first race for McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren). Thanks to the guys back at MTC and here at the track for their hard work and preparation."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "We've had a great start this weekend to the 2021 season. Congratulations to the whole team - here in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), back home at the factory and also, especially, to our colleagues at Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), who worked really hard with our team over the winter to make sure we were ready to hit the ground running at the opening race.


"Today the team executed the race very well, while Lando and Daniel drove strong races to bring us home in P4 and P7. It gives us good points in a Constructors' Championship that looks already very, very tight. We had the third-quickest car today, but we acknowledge there's going to be a tense battle for that spot this year. We leave Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) committed as ever to working hard, improving our car and ensuring we're still as competitive at the final race as we were at the first."

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - Aston Martin
Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "I'm pleased to come away with a point, but it is fair to say we wanted more from today. We had a strong first half of the race and we made up some positions. I felt comfortable in the car and we were racing hard against the cars around us. We tailed off a little bit in the second half of the race on the hard tyres, but there are plenty of positives to take away. I enjoyed some good battles too, especially with Fernando (Alonso) early on. We know there are some areas where we can improve and everything we have learned this weekend will help us in the races to come. We have a few weeks before the next race to work on those things."

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It was quite a tricky race. We tried to do something different with the strategy - by stopping only once - but it did not pay off in the end. I think we made the right decision to try it, but by the end of the race my tyres were falling off the cliff. The start of the race was strong: I made a good start and I was well positioned after lap one. But it was not easy to make progress after that. I picked up a small flat spot and we had to extend the first stint to try and make the one-stop strategy work. In the end, it just wasn't possible to score points today. Even though it has not been the best weekend, we have continued learning together and understanding where we can improve. There is definitely the potential to take some good steps forward in the races to come."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "It was important to mark Aston Martin's return to Formula 1 with a finish inside the points. Lance drove a strong and intelligent race, making the two-stop strategy work well. I don't think there was much more on the table, especially considering the long final stint on the hard tyres. In terms of race pace, Lance was there or thereabouts with the midfield pack, which is encouraging, but it is clear the new regulations have impacted more negatively on teams - such as ourselves - running a low rake aero philosophy. Sebastian's race was always going to be tricky with having to recover from the back of the grid and we switched him to a one-stop strategy to give him the best chance of scoring points. In the end, it was too much of a stretch and his tyre performance fell away quicker than we had anticipated. We will take the positives and negatives from the first weekend of the season and work hard over the next few weeks to be more competitive at the next race in Imola."

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team missed out on points in the season opening Gulf Air Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix with Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) thirteenth and

Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) - on his return to Formula 1 - retiring under the lights at the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) International Circuit.It was a bright start for both cars with Fernando passing Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) on the outside of Turn 1 on the first lap to take eighth with Esteban gaining three places after a quick getaway off the line. Fernando was locked in an early battle with a string of cars with his pit-stop - for Mediums - on lap 11 allowing him to jump a number of drivers after a slick 2.5second stop by the crew.

Esteban was always knocking on the door of points and he pitted on lap 13 for Medium tyres. Fernando was in the box again on lap 29 for Hards but his evening ended early as he retired with overheating rear brakes as a result of debris in the brake ducts.


Esteban pushed on - striving for points - with a pit-stop for Hards on lap 31 putting him in the mix. His chances of breaking into the top 10 were hampered when Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) collided into the back of his A521 at Turn 1 on lap 44, causing Esteban to spin. The Frenchman ended thirteenth at the flag.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It wasn't the result we wanted today, but there were certainly lots of positives. We were fighting for most of the race with a number of cars with fun, wheel to wheel battles. Even with Seb [Vettel] at the end, he locked up and went into me. He apologised, we all make mistakes, and that happens sometimes. We were just a little bit short overall today. Qualifying didn't help us as it meant we always had places to gain. We showed our fighting spirit during this race and that's quite important. We move onto the next race as a team, aiming to get back to scoring points."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "Firstly, it was great to be back racing in Formula 1. The start was fun, we gained some places and I had some enjoyable battles with old colleagues. However, it was disappointing to not see the chequered flag in the end. The issue we had after the second stop was a rear brake issue as some debris entered the brake ducts and overheated the temperatures of the car. Looking at the race it was very close in the midfield, and just a couple of tenths seems to change the order quite significantly. I think it's going to be a very interesting and competitive season to watch. We'll go again and fight hard in Imola."


Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director: "It's not the best start to the season for us as we had our fair share of bad luck throughout the weekend; both in qualifying and the race. Both cars made a good start and gained some places on the first lap with Fernando holding firm in the top ten. After his first stop we had a small issue that forced us to reduce the performance of the car, then after the second stop, a sandwich wrap paper got stuck inside the rear brake duct of Fernando's car, which led to high temperatures and caused some damage to the brake system, so we retired him for safety reasons. It was a very unlucky first race for Fernando considering how strong he looked. Esteban drove a solid race today starting from sixteenth and was heading towards a possible points finish. But then he was hit by Sebastian [Vettel], which led to some damage to the car. We've got some work to do ahead of Imola to bring more performance to the car to fight in a very competitive midfield where each tenth counts. We're all looking forward to having another go in just a few weeks."

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - Ferrari
The Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix provided Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow with a first indication of the quality of the work carried out over the winter, both in terms of the car itself and how the team worked. Sixth and eighth place finishes for Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) respectively are a good starting point for a season that's going to be long and hectic.

With two teams clearly ahead of the pack, the fight to be third best is very close, as was seen in qualifying and Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) was in that fight from the first to the last lap. Yesterday, the Scuderia seemed to have won that particular contest, today the situation changed, but the gaps were still very small. Making a comparison with the race run on this track four months ago, the progress was clear to see, relative to our closest competitors, as well as to those at the front of the field, the latter gap still being quite a big one. Particular attention went into planning relating to tyre management and here too this produced results. There's still a long way to go, but we seem to be on the right road.

Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): It's a nice start and a good feeling and I am reasonably happy with the race today. I cannot be extremely satisfied with P6, but at the end of the day we need to look at where we were last year and it's clear we have made good progress.


I had a very good start. I found myself in third place and managed my tyres quite well in the first stint. I think there was probably a bit more left in them, but we had to stop and try to push the others towards different strategies, which was the right thing to do, but it might have cost us a little bit in terms of pace at the end of the race.


All in all, it was a good race and a positive weekend and we made a good step forward compared to last season. We're still not where we want to be, so we need to keep working and pushing very hard to get better in the coming races.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): I think we had a solid first race today. It was very important for me to complete all the laps and keep building experience with the car. Maybe that's the reason why this time I didn't take too many risks at the start and it cost me a couple of places. I was curious to see how the car reacted in the dirty air of a race start and I knew I would have the opportunity to fight back once I got into my rhythm.


Once the race settled a bit, I started pushing lap by lap and I think we showed a very strong pace with the Medium tyre and especially with the Hard tyre during the last stint. I also managed to pull of some good overtakes.


Today I'm happy for the work we have been doing the entire weekend. Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) wants more. I want more. But it has been a promising start and we'll keep pushing to get there.

Mattia Binotto: That was a very intense race. It was the first of 23 stages of what will be a very long season and we must take each one as it comes, working calmly and with determination, just as we did this weekend. In the race, we struggled a bit more than we had done in qualifying, but we acquired plenty of useful data that will allow us to understand where we must improve.


There's a long way to go, but we will continue working to improve in all areas. Now our attention turns to the next round in Imola, which is special for us given that, along with Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza), it is a home race for us.

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauriYuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I'm happy I managed to score points in my first Grand Prix - I think this race showed how great the performance of the car is. I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed still as I lost a few positions on the first lap - due to being too cautious - and had to work throughout the race to recover these. I've learnt a lot here in Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir), which is really positive, and I will take this with me to Imola. I had some strong overtakes during the race and, for me, overtaking Fernando was quite an emotional experience, he's a Formula 1 superstar that I've grown up watching, so that was pretty exciting. I'm really proud of my performance and I'm looking forward to seeing how we do next time out."
Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm obviously very disappointed right now because we've had a very strong weekend since we arrived. Starting from P5 I was hoping for some good points today, but my race was pretty much over after the contact with Daniel in lap one. I broke the front wing, I had floor damage and I was obviously very far behind after just one lap, so my race was almost finished from there. It's a big shame because we've shown some good pace all weekend and we haven't managed to get the rewards of that today, but I think there are still quite a lot of positives to take-away from this weekend and that's what we'll look at for Imola."


Franz Tost (Team Principal): "After a satisfying qualifying session yesterday, Pierre started on the grid today in fifth position and Yuki in 13th. The start of the race was good, with Pierre coming back in the first lap to keep his fifth position. Yuki had a reasonable start too, but then he was passed by a few other drivers - behind Ocon he then had to brake quite hard, causing a flat-spot on the front right tyre which meant he started feeling some vibrations. After the safety car, Pierre had a collision which caused damage to his front wing, coming down to corner five, therefore we had to pit him to change it - which of course took some time. Maybe the softer compound would have prevented the accident, as the grip on the mediums after the safety car was quite low. From then onwards, Pierre's race was compromised as he also had damage to the floor, which meant quite a big loss of performance. Nevertheless, in his last stint he showed some fantastic lap times and was really one of the fastest out there. Unfortunately, we had to retire him towards the end of the race for a suspected gearbox issue that we need to investigate further. At the end, he couldn't score any points, but he did a fantastic job in qualifying yesterday and he showed the race pace was there today - he was just unlucky.


"Yuki had his first race in F1 and I must say he really did a fantastic job. We told him his aim was to come back from the first lap with a healthy car to be able to run his race, and that's exactly what he achieved. He showed a lot of good overtaking maneuverers - I believe he was the car that completed the most overtakes - and his lap times were also very competitive, with the medium tyre as well as with the hard compound. He deserved ninth position and it was really nice to see how he fought against Kimi, Lance and others - I think we can look forward to the season ahead with him. He is the first Japanese driver to score points in the debut race, and it's great he achieved this result with us. I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone at Honda for putting in so much work over the winter months to provide us with such a competitive PU, essential to our performance. Even if I expected a better result this weekend and today we couldn't get it together in the way we should've done, having a really strong package makes us look forward to Imola now."

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - Alfa Romeo
11th and 12th are probably the cruellest positions in Formula One - just outside the points. To be tantalisingly close to the top ten but still to miss out hurts, but we can take pride in the way we raced tonight. On an evening with only two retirements, we held our own in the midfield, fighting as equals and demonstrating we have made a big leap forward in performance compared to the last time we raced here in Sakhir.

Kimi and Antonio kept their noses clean at the start, running in the points for big swathes of the race as the different strategies played out across the board. In the end, there was no reward, but the result - and, most importantly, the way it was obtained - can give us reasons to be optimistic for the future.


The gaps are close and marginal improvements can catapult us right into the top ten: the fight is on, starting in Imola in three weeks' time.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "Tonight gave us a strong indication of the progress we have made in the last twelve months. We raced with authority, leaving the Alpines and an Aston Martin behind us and finishing on the tail of the other Aston. Even though we leave Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) with no points, we do so having reclaimed our place in the midst of the midfield - and results will surely come soon. We demonstrated to be the able to fight in and around the top ten and we can look with optimism to the rest of the season. It was an eventful race, even though the low attrition rate - just two retirements - meant we had our work cut out when aiming for a place in the points. We take a lot of positives, however, knowing we can go to the next race in Imola, in two weeks, ready to battle again for a place in the top ten."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It wasn't a bad race, we had some good fights and the car behaved nicely, but it's disappointing not to bring home points when we were in the top ten nearly all night. Had the race been a few laps longer, we probably would have been able to catch the cars in front but we will keep trying. The car felt good, as it did in testing, so it is clear we have made a step forward compared to last year: we still have a bit to work to close the gap with the top five teams, but we keep fighting to find that little bit extra."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "Compared to the start of last season, we are much faster and have a much better car so we can be happy about the step forward we have made. It wasn't enough to bring home points today, but we are very close to the top ten and we can consistently fight for the points. My race was good, I think I got everything I could out of the car, but of course we lost time at the first pit-stop. In the end, mistakes do happen and we have to learn from them and make sure we don't do them again next time; without the issue, I would have probably been close to where Kimi ended. Now my focus is on Imola, racing again in my home country and hopefully achieving a good result to make the Tifosi at home happy."

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team opened its 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship campaign with Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) 16th while Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) was unable to finish at the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix.

Schumacher took the start from 18th position on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium tires and stayed out of trouble across the first lap. At the restart Schumacher suffered a spin through the turn four right-hander but was able to keep going after a brief trip through the gravel. Schumacher came in after 14 laps, taking on another set of medium tires, before making a second stop on lap 35, switching onto the White hard tires. Schumacher kept his head down for the remainder of the 56-lap race and took the checkered flag in 16th position in his maiden event.


Mazepin started from 19th position on the medium tires and sought to make gains through the opening sequence of turns. Unfortunately, Mazepin picked up a snap of oversteer on cold tires through the kerbs on the right-hander of turn two and spun through the gravel, making contract with the barriers. It brought his debut grand prix to a close after just a few hundred meters due to the damage sustained to the VF-21. Mazepin was able to extricate himself from the car and walk away uninjured.


World Champion Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) opened the new campaign with the 96th victory of his Formula One career, holding off Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing's Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) by seven tenths of a second. Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) classified third.


Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team will return to action at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, to be held at the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari), from April 16 to 18.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "It was very simple - I made a mistake. It was just one of those things. My start had been good, I got into turn one taking the outside line. I was then going through turn two and I was really trying to avoid Mick (Schumacher) as he was close and got too much on power - the tires didn't take it. They were cold, I got on the kerb, took too much throttle and spun. It was totally my mistake, it's very disappointing. I'm very sorry for the team as they deserved to do much better than that. Obviously, there's always positives you can take - the learning experience is obviously there."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "In general, I'd say I was 90 percent happy and 10 percent not - because of the mistake I made, the spin, at the safety car restart. Luckily the car was still drivable, everything was alright so I could keep going and continue to build on my experience through the race weekend. Obviously, after that I went through the C3 and the C2, which felt really good. It was a bit of a shame that I wasn't in the pack to be able to at least try to be close to the guys for a few laps. Fortunately, I did get through things like blue flags and I caught up to Nicholas (Latifi) - so I was able to feel how it was to follow a car closely and have DRS. Overall, I feel like I've learned a lot, and hopefully I'm able to convert that into something positive for the next race."


Guenther Steiner: "We had a 50 percent success rate today. Mick (Schumacher) did a very good job - I think he learned a lot today, and the team learned a lot, the strategy's working. Nikita (Mazepin), obviously, we all saw had a spin on the first lap which compromised his race. He doesn't feel great about it, but we put it down as learning. He will get back at it again at the next race weekend, for sure he's learned from this weekend. In general terms, the team worked very well over the whole weekend together with the drivers. I think they've all started to gel as a team. They've been working together, they understand each other. These things always take time. It's very complex - the whole sport is so complex, and it's only time that gives you some solutions. You cannot force these things and you cannot buy them. Every day we are together working is a plus."

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - Williams
George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69332/drivers/66/george-russell) finished 14th whilst Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) had to retire on lap 52 due to a suspected boost leak in the Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix. The Briton started 15th and the Canadian 17th, both on the soft Pirelli tyre.

George ran a two-stop race, pitting on laps 13 and 36, each time for the medium compound. Nicholas also made two planned stops on laps 14 and 32, again for the medium Pirelli tyre on each occasion.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: We had a mixed day today, with George showing good pace and race craft to finish P14, and close behind Ocon; all the work, which we began in testing two weeks ago, paid off with three well-managed stints. Unfortunately, Nicholas's race became very difficult early on when a suspected boost leak in the power unit cost him power and driveability. He was having to manage the power unit extensively, which began to cost him a lot of time and ultimately caused him to spin. Once he was no longer able to stay ahead of Schumacher, we chose to retire him from the race to protect the car from any potential damage.


It's good to get the opening race of the season under our belts and we now head back to base with a clearer picture of the relative strengths and weaknesses of the FW43B. We have a couple of weeks to review and improve the car before we regroup for the next race in Imola. We are looking forward to going back to such a fantastic track and are confident that we can combine the experience gained this weekend with the success that we enjoyed in Imola last year.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69332/drivers/66/george-russell): It was nice to be racing and I had a good little tussle at the beginning, making a few places and losing a few places. I thought it was a well-executed race. The first stint was tricky but the second and third were as good as can be and our relative pace was quite strong. That was the maximum today and I think our relative pace was good. I'm now looking forward to Imola and assessing where we are there.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I was pleasantly surprised with how the handling of the car felt in the race. We were expecting something quite tricky to handle but, irrespective of the issue that caused us to retire, I was surprised with the driveability of the car. It's still not where we want to be, but I think that was a positive going forward.


Straight away from the first laps, even with the laps to the grid, I felt we were getting some oscillations in the engine with power and it seems we had a suspected boost leak which is why we had to retire in the end. We tried to stay out for as long as possible, hoping that a few cars might retire, but in the last half of the race we were just circulating and not really racing. It's not how you want the first race to go but that is just motorsport sometimes.

Bahrain GP: Race team notes - PirelliThe Bahrain (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/1/sakhir) Grand Prix turned into a tense strategic tyre battle between Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen), who started from pole, and Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton), who subsequently won the race after defending his advantage with more used tyres. Hamilton got in front after pitting earlier, but Verstappen was able to benefit from tyres that were 11 laps younger during the final stint. Both drivers ran different two-stop strategies.

Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) finished third after making a late final stop for the P Zero Yellow medium tyre, to claim the extra championship point for the fastest race lap. Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) also stopped three times on his Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) debut, finishing fifth after having started from the pitlane. AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri)'s Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) was the only other three-stopper, following a first pit stop due to a contact.


Temperatures were much cooler on race day than they had been previously during the weekend, with 21 degrees ambient and track temperatures of around 25 degrees, as well as gusting winds.


There were a number of different strategies seen throughout the action-packed race, which was shortened by one lap after an extra formation lap. In total, we saw five different strategies in the top six.

Mario Isola: "Tyre strategy was at the forefront of this exciting race, with Hamilton and Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) twice stopping earlier than Verstappen and Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) - meaning of course that Hamilton had to complete a longer final stint, which he managed brilliantly. All three compounds performed strongly throughout the race, with Verstappen also doing a long middle stint on the medium. We saw a number of different strategies, with five of the finishers using all the compounds during the race, and two three-stoppers in the top five as well. The strategies also reflected the tyre sets that each driver had available for the race."

Algunas novedades técnicas vistas durante el GP y captadas por N. Carpentiers:

La galerie technique du Grand Prix de Bahreïn

Au menu de la première galerie technique de la saison : le capot moteur de l’Alpine et les secrets qu’il abrite, l’impact du règlement sur les voitures à assiette plate, comme la Mercedes et l’Aston Martin, et l’étrange bosse du moteur fabriqué à Brixworth.

https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/03/f1-technique-bahrein-2021_alpine_fr_2.jpg

DANS LA GROTTE DE LA MONTAGNE ALPINE

Lors de la présentation de la monoplace française et durant les essais d’avant saison, on s’est beaucoup interrogé sur le volumineux capot moteur de l’Alpine, clairement plus large que celui de ses concurrentes. Grâce à nos images exclusives, on en sait maintenant un peu plus.


Si l’apparence de l’A521 évoque celle de la Ligier JS5, en exagérant un brin, c’est parce que des conduits d’alimentation en air ont été ajoutés sur les côtés. Il s’agit des conduites en carbone que l’on voit ci-dessus (voyez le trait jaune).
Comme ils contournent le radiateur central par les côtés, ils prennent de la place de part et d’autre de l’axe longitudinal.

Ce qui explique l’embonpoint pris par la carrosserie à cet endroit par rapport à la Renault R20.

https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/03/f1-technique-bahrein-2021_alpine_fr_1.jpg

Examinons ce qui se passe sous le capot. L’Alpine conserve un radiateur central, installé au-dessus du moteur dans le sens de la longueur et entour par les deux conduits mentionnés plus haut. Il semble plus fin que celui de la RS20, mais se prolonge loin en arrière. Ce radiateur est alimenté par une entrée d’air centrale, sans que l’on sache actuellement s’il s’agit de l’entrée triangulaire au-dessus du casque du pilote (1) ou de celle qui est située derrière le casque (2 – mais dans ce cas, comment le moteur thermique serait-il alimenté en air ?).


Sous cet échangeur central, un plus petit radiateur est installé transversalement. C’est lui qui est alimenté en air frais par les deux gros conduits latéraux mentionnés plus haut, qui élargissent le capot moteur.

https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/03/f1-technique-bahrein-2021_alpine-3.jpg


On peut penser que les ingénieurs d’Enstone ont ajouté cet échangeur transversal – absent sur le châssis de l’an dernier – pour qu’il prenne en charge une partie du refroidissement auparavant assuré par les radiateurs installés dans les pontons.

Ce qui permettrait d’amincir les radiateurs et par conséquent les pontons. Sauf que cela ne paraît pas être le cas. En effet, si leur entrée a été rabotée (flèches bleues), les pontons ne semblent pas beaucoup plus étroits que sur la Renault. Or, l’Alpine a souffert par forte chaleur, ce qui pourrait poser un problème les mois d’été. Bref, on en sait plus, mais pas encore tout… pour le moment ! Marcin Budkowski a annoncé que la voiture recevrait une “bonne” mise à jour à Imola dans trois semaines.

ASTON MARTIN ET MERCEDES TOUCHENT LE FOND… PLAT

Même si Lewis Hamilton s’est imposé dimanche à Bahreïn, il ne pilotait pas la voiture la plus rapide, pas plus que son équipier, ni les pilotes Aston Martin.


Après avoir produit une “Mercedes rose ” l’an passé et profité des bienfaits du concept aérodynamique imaginé par Brackley, l’équipe de Lawrence Stroll semble cette fois souffrir d’avoir imité Mercedes.


L’AMR21, comme la W12, possède un empattement long et une assiette relativement plate, soit un “rake” faible comme on dit dans le jargon (la notion de “rake” en F1 est expliquée ici (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/2/)). Apparemment, ces monoplaces ont davantage souffert des règles aérodynamiques introduites cette année (en gros la découpe des bords du fond plat) que les voitures courtes et penchées de l’école Red Bull (avec un fort “rake”). Ce que suggère la comparaison des temps de qualification par rapport à l’an passé :

https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/03/f1-technique-bahrein-2021_gains-pertes.jpg


Si on confronte les temps de qualification du Grand Prix de Bahreïn 2020 avec ceux de l’édition actuelle, on remarque que toutes les monoplaces ont perdu du temps, en raison des mesures aérodynamiques introduites par le règlement technique (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/reglement-technique-f1-2021-explique/3/). Mais certaines ont été plus durement affectées que d’autres. Ainsi, la Mercedes et l’Aston Martin ont perdu grosso modo sept dixièmes de plus que les autres monoplaces.


“Après avoir analysé les données des tests et de ce weekend, il est clair que les nouvelles règles aérodynamiques ont impacté les voitures avec une philosophie à assiette plate (faible ‘rake’) plus que les châssis ayant une assiette penchée (‘rake’ élevé)”, a expliqué le patron d’Aston Martin, Otmar Szafnauer (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-features/portrait/otmar-szafnauer-lingenieux/).


“Plus particulièrement, les changements apportés aux dimensions du fond plat et au profil de l’arrière des voitures ont eu un profond effet négatif sur les châssis à faible ‘rake’ alors que les autres voitures, comme les Red Bull, AlphaTauri, McLaren et Ferrari, n’ont pas autant souffert.”

https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/03/f1-technique-bahrein-2021_aston-martin_2bis.jpg


C’est la raison pour laquelle les ingénieurs d’Aston Martin ont modifié en profondeur le fond plat de l’AMR21. Sur la nouvelle version, la découpe débute avant ce qu’exige le règlement, de sorte que le bord du fond plat présente une ligne plus droite, moins cassée que la version utilisée pendant les tests (comparez les traits jaunes). Un choix a priori curieux (puisque le soubassement perd de la superficie), qui s’explique sans doute par des possibilités accrues, ou simplifiées, de générer des vortex.


Par ailleurs, une série de petits déflecteurs a été ajoutée (flèches rouges), afin de générer davantage de vortex le long du fond plat pour contribuer à sceller les bords du diffuseur. Le but ? Créer une sorte de paroi (comme les jupes de jadis) protégeant le diffuseur des turbulences causées par la rotation des roues arrière. L’AMR21 reprend par ailleurs le dessin des déflecteurs “coffrés” imaginé par Mercedes (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/trouvailles-techniques-essais-f1-2021/) (flèches bleues).


Si Aston Martin a réagi très rapidement, ce n’est pas le cas de Mercedes, qui a plutôt joué sur les réglages (hauteur de caisse, suspension) pour améliorer le comportement de la W12, sans introduire de nouvelles pièces.

https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/03/f1-technique-bahrein-2021_mercedes-moteur.jpg

UNE HISTOIRE DE BOSSE

On savait que Mercedes avait modifié le collecteur d’admission de son V6 hybride (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/f1-aston-martin-amr21-loupe/2/), mais on ne l’avait pas encore vu et on se demandait pourquoi la McLaren ne présentait la même excroissance que la Mercedes ou l’Aston Martin.


En ôtant le capot des monoplaces propulsées par Brackley (dont la Williams), on mesure l’ampleur du changement. La forme en trapèze plat du collecteur est devenue cylindrique, comme on le voit en comparant la W11 et la W12 ci-dessus. Le collecteur répartit uniformément, pour chaque cylindre, la quantité d’air nécessaire à une combustion complète du carburant.


En F1, les collecteurs d’admission à longueur variable sont autorisés. Ils permettent de faire varier à loisir la longueur du conduit d’admission et profiter ainsi des régimes d’accord. La nouvelle forme du collecteur du bloc M12 optimise le travail des trompettes d’admission amovibles. Mais il faudrait pouvoir regarder à l’intérieur pour en savoir davantage.

https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/03/f1-technique-bahrein-2021_moteur-mercedes_mclaren.jpg


McLAREN SUIT UNE AUTRE VOIE

Ce qui est certain, en revanche, c’est que le capot moteur de la McLaren ne présente pas de bosse, comme la Williams et contrairement à la Mercedes et à l’Aston Martin.


La raison tient au système de refroidissement choisi par Woking. La MCL35M conserve en effet le large radiateur central installé au-dessus du moteur (flèche rouge). Elle ne présente donc pas d’arrête au sommet du capot moteur, mais une section déjà large, de telle sorte que la protubérance ne ressort pas au niveau du collecteur.


La Mercedes et l’Aston Martin, elles, ne possèdent pas de radiateur longitudinal, mais plutôt un échangeur trapézoïdal placé derrière le V6 (flèche bleue). Leur capot moteur est donc étroit en son sommet et s’élargit ensuite pour épouser la forme du collecteur.

https://f1i.auto-moto.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/03/f1-technique-bahrein-2021_alpine-4.jpg

DES PICS SUR LE FOND PLAT Sur le plan aérodynamique, les monoplaces ont déjà évolué depuis les essais tenus il y a deux semaines.


Comme on l’a expliqué ailleurs (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/trouvailles-techniques-essais-f1-2021/), c’est la région du fond plat, et plus particulièrement la zone située devant les pneus arrière des F1, qui reçoit toute l’attention des aérodynamiciens. À la suite des changements introduits dans le règlement technique, les écuries explorent plusieurs pistes (concrètement, en ajoutant ou déplaçant de petits déflecteurs verticaux) afin de récupérer l’appui perdu. C’est ce qu’a fait Aston Martin, comme on l’a expliqué en page 2, mais elle n’est pas la seule.


On a ainsi vu Fernando Alonso et Esteban Ocon tester deux versions du fond plat de l’Alpine. Toutes deux introduisent un nouvel élément devant les roues arrière : quatre ailettes dans la version 1, une seule pièce crantée dans la version 2, au lieu de trois éléments pendant les tests.


La mission de ces ailettes est de dévier le flux d’air et de produire de petits tourbillons afin de contrecarrer les turbulences provoquées par la rotation des roues arrière (le fameux “tyre squirt” (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/4/)). Jusqu’à cette année, la partie désormais retirée du fond plat protégeait le diffuseur de ces perturbations.


Comme on le voit ci-dessus, la version 2 ajoute deux déflecteurs supplémentaires (flèches rouges) et redouble le déflecteur métallique (flèche blanche). Le rôle de ces pièces ? Générer de petits vortex (schématisés en jaune) le long du soubassement afin d’aider à sceller les bords du diffuseur, comme le faisaient les entailles et encoches désormais interdite (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/4/)s.
