2008 Bahrain Formula 1 GP – Friday Free Practice

Hamilton Bahrain 2008Ferrari dominated the Friday sessions in Bahrain with Felipe Massa ahead of Kimi Raikkonen both in the morning and in the afternoon. Just before the end of P2 Massa did the best lap of the day, the only lap below 1:32s.

Today was a good day for Williams. Rosberg was 3rd fastest in P1 and 6th in P2, Nakajima not too far behind. The headache of Sepang seems to be over.

McLarens were quite a bit off the pace of Ferrari today. Then in P2, just when the times started to get quicker, Hamilton crashed. He hit the wall pretty hard and damaged the car. He did not get a chance to go for the quick run as most of the other drivers. Hamilton ended the P2 in 4th place, half a second behind Kimi, almost one and half second behind Massa.

Kubica was faster of the 2 BMW Sauber drivers today, significantly faster. Not sure if Heidfeld was experiencing some problems with the car or was simply on different programme.

It looked to be pretty bad day for Renault, especially in P2. Both cars languished around the bottom of time sheets for most of the session. Then they managed to get their act together and Piquet squeezed into top 10. The midfield is however very crowded and there is not much between 8th and 18th …

Same as today, tomorrow you can also follow the action from Bahrain on Live Blog also here on F1Wolf. The Live Blog will be on for Saturday practice and also for qualifying. You can replay Live Blog from Practice 1 and Practice 2 to see what to expect.

    Hope Vettel finishes the race, and I am betting the pole position will have a very interesting competition on saturday, (may be one of the Bimmers?)
