Fernando Alonso is already in Bahrain. The Sakhir circuit hosts this weekend’s fourth round of the F1 world championship and although the forecasts are not entirely favorable to the interests of Fernando, the truth is that it is one of the circuits for both Alonso and Scuderia Ferrari is a talisman. Fernando has uncorked the champagne from the top of the podium up to now in three occasions, the pilot has achieved the higher number of victories at this track. He did it in 2005 and 2006, both Renault and the two years when he became world champion. After repeated success in his official debut for Ferrari in 2010, including fast lap. In that edition, Felipe Massa finished second, completing a great one-two for Ferrari. The team is the one with most wins in Bahrain, four in seven years.
Fernando arrives in Bahrain conveniently located in the standings with a third place only eight behind the leader. Recently he expressed his concern for this Grand Prix as the car is the same as in Shanghai waiting for developments that will arrive in Barcelona: “Both the Scuderia and I have a good record in Bahrain: the team has won four times there, and I have won three. The last victory was actually in my first race with the Prancing Horse. But the past counts for nothing in this sport, so this weekend we will try to limit damage. ” Fernando expressed caution but also with optimism for the immediate future: “I have faith in the team, and I know everyone at Maranello are giving all to achieve this goal.”
Bahrain Grand Prix joined the Formula 1 calendar in 2004 and has been in charge of welcoming the beginning of 2006 and 2010 seasons. Within hours of the engines begin to roar, the calm is the dominant trend in Bahrain despite the unrest and instability in the country yet. The weather forecasts will be common in these latitudes: 30 degrees maximum temperature, low humidity and no wind for the entire weekend.
