Todt Left Looking Foolish Over Bahrain

Yesterday I said it was time for Formula One to stand up and tell the the FIA it is wrong in deciding it was appropriate to hold a Bahrain Grand Prix this year. So did they? Well… not in exactly those words…

Bahrain’s Political Football

Well I suppose nobody can say Bahrain was boring this year. The drivers don’t seem to want to go. Some of the teams don’t seem to want to go either. Even Max Mosley thinks it is a terrible idea. Only Bernie Ecclestone appeared to be keen, that is until the FIA decided to reschedule the Bahrain Grand Prix to the end of October – cue some degree of Ecclestone backtracking…

Perhaps it was the excessive levels of hype that the media have been throwing in the direction of the 2010 season? Perhaps we expected too much from Bahrain – it’s not produced many thrills in previous seasons either, an issue that was perhaps overlooked when given the top billing? Whatever it was, we can only hope that the rest of the season generates more interest than the season opener.

Good Weekend

Clearly a good weekend for Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa and Ferrari. Maximum points for the team, with Alonso settling right in …

Three new teams, two returning teams, five new drivers, two returning drivers and still plenty of room for some familiar faces – the 2010 season starts here at the Bahrain International Circuit and on the face of it, it promises to be an intriguing season.

The Main Challengers…

With four World Champions and a raft of young pretenders to the throne, take your pick. The smart money, or at least the money of those not willing to stick their necks out too far, seems to spread between McLaren, Mercedes, Red Bull and …
