Can't wait. I'm literally counting down the hours. Only 89 and a half to go.

Anyway, thinking it's time we start discussing the Bahrain round specifically. First question I have:

Who's worth backing (Pole, Win, Podium, Top 8, etc.) prior to first practice this Friday? Who's worth the risk & where does the value lie?

Currently I'm only interested in one bet pre-practice - but it's a risky one: I'm liking the fact the circuit has been extended & for a number of reasons the bet I like is Lewis for Pole.

- The McLaren seems to have good low(ish) fuel pace from testing.
- Lewis & McLaren were looking good late last year. Clearly a completely different track aerodynamically - but his qualifying at the Yas Marina Circuit was simply a pleasure to watch.
- I rate Lewis the highest over one lap.
- In his rookies year & only his third race in Formula at this circuit - he has A LOT of pace over his two times world champion team-mate. Highly impressive!
- I like the chances of Lewis being the fastest through sector 2. No one's better than Lewis at learning a new track (imo).
- Last point - if he has at least a car than is 'almost the best' I'd fully expect him to get pole.

Of course such a risky bet pre-season but I think I'm probably going to run with it.

Interested in your thoughts.

Report LazyRamper March 14, 2010 12:20 PM GMT
According to F1 rules you need to complete 90% of laps to be officially classified.

Is that the lap closest to the 90% figure, or the first lap over 90%? 44/49 is .898 for instance.
