2010 Bahrain GP – Saturday Practice – Alonso fastest

Fernando Alonso 2010 Bahrain GP

Fernando Alonso - Fastest in final practice for 2010 Bahrain GP

Fernando Alonso was the fastest driver in the final practice session of the 2010 Bahrain GP weekend, second place in FP3 belongs to Nico Rosberg who was about 1.5 tenths faster than his team mate Michael Schumacher (4th fastest time in FP3).

There is one certainty already after FP3. As the HRT team failed to get Karun Chandhok’s car ready he completely missed all the practice sessions and therefore will not be able to take part in the qualifying and the race. He will have to wait for his F1 debut for another 2 weeks. That also means we still need to wait for another F1 race featuring 24 cars … or not ? – see this tweet


Both Virgin Racing and Lotus managed to get times below 2:00.000, while Bruno Senna managed to get time less than 10 secs off the pace of Alonso.

Earlier in the session a wheel nut failed on Timo Glocks VR-01 causing the whole wheel to come off. Luckily nobody was hurt, both Glock and Bruno Senna behind him managed to avoid the contact with loose wheel on the track. The wheel nut failure was apparently caused by faulty wheel gun.
