I was pretty pleased with the outcome of my Australian GP predictions, so here’s my bash at predicting the Bahrain Grand Prix!
Pole Position: Nico Rosberg – Mercedes
Having won the first race, I think Rosberg will be really up for this. He needs to be beating Hamilton on saturdays early in the season to give him a chance to control races, therefore giving him a bigger chance of victory. Never discount Hamilton though, he doesnt have 50 poles for no good reason.
Race Winner: Lewis Hamilton – Mercedes
Lewis is in a similar position to Nico in some ways. He hasn’t beaten his team mate in any of the last 4 races, going back into 2015. I think it will an all Merc front row and I fancy Lewis to edge Nico over the race on strategy. I think he’s more capable of making an alternate strategy work for him.
Podium: Hamilton – Rosberg – Vettel
Toro Rosso double points finish
Hulkenberg to finish ahead of Perez
