You are very welcome.

I'm excited for Bahrain, but feel bad that Melbourne doesn't get the opener. It's always such a fantastic atmosphere with beautiful scenery.

But Bahrain will give us some better racing, that's for sure.

I was hoping that teams would be able to choose their own tire allocation again this season.

The wind will be blowing towards the SSE which means the track will be quite fast and the final corner will be especially tricky.

The wind helps you through 4, 6&7, 9&10 and 13.

Why will the last corner be tricky? If the wind is blowing to the SSE, the wind will improve as you go through the apex.

Don't forget that the start straight is north/south with the last turn at the southern end.

You're going from cross wind to head wind, and can cause understeer on corner exit, or a loss of grip if you're not careful. Making it tricky, it's tricky to rock a rhyme that's right on time, but it's not impossible.

I am excited

Let’s see if Red Bull is legit or if Mercedes have made a complete fool out of the F1 media yet again.

Only 6 days ago Toto about the low rake:



I think in about 6 days the gremlins are gone. :wink: No diva at all.

It's the usual mind games. Like in war tactics you need to appear weaker than your opponent. If you win from the underdog position you undermine his mood.

Nevertheless, still hoping for upfront battles, whoever it may be.

With the torrential rains and flooding in Australia right now it's actually a blessing for F1 that it's in Bahrain this weekend.

Probably never going back, makes everyone’s life easier, and the teams will learn to work around it. One of the many things that will change permanently after the pandemic.
