The first race weekend of 2010 F1 season is here, it is time for the round one of 2010 Prediction Game. We have several new drivers, new teams, in fact more teams and drivers than we have had for very long time. We have new team mate rivalries, we also have four world champions on the grid. Predicting the outcome of the first race is never easy. This year the new rules made the predictions even more difficult. Unlike last year no clear favourite for early season wins emerged after the winter testing although Ferrari, Red Bull, McLaren and Mercedes are expected to lead the pack. We may get a bit clearer picture after the practice sessions on Friday and Saturday …
The season kicks of in Bahrain where hot and dry weather is expected. This year Bahrain GP will be run on longer configuration track than previously. Slow twisty section (between turns 4 to 14 – see diagram) was added. Obviously as result we will not be able to compare the lap times with those recorder in the past. The new Bahrain lap is 6.299km/3.914 miles long. The race length is 49 laps (308.405km/191.642 miles).
2010 Bahrain GP starts on Sunday March 14 at 15:00 local time (12:00 GMT, 20:00 Hong Kong).
The predictions have to be placed before the start of the qualifying session (Saturday March 13, 14:00 local time, 11:00 GMT, 19:00 Hong Kong). Remember – this year we are predicting top 10, pole position and fastest lap ! Predictions can be changed, amended, there is no limit on the number of changes as long as they are made before the start of the qualifying. Some Bahrain GP predictions were already placed under the Champion Prediction post – I moved them all here for the sake of better orientation .
So, go ahead and make your predictions for 2010 Bahrain GP – pole, fastest lap and top 10. Good luck !
