Not that driving an F1 car is ever easy but with 108 F air temp and fine sand blowing around it had to take a super human effort to finish this race.

and nevermind the fact that the McLaren Mercedes driver that passed Webber's BMW so handily was a back-up test-driver to replace the injured JPM. Also not to shabby for the back-up driver to turn in the fastest lap of the day on the Bahrain circuit.

This season's McLaren Mercedes cars are fast! A few more races and further tuning and they'll get some wins. Still have my fingers crossed that the engines don't blow up.

Lastly, nice to see team Scuderia get their healthy serving of humble pie.

Agree. Watched the race in a sports bar in London with a bunch of other fans, great atmosphere.

A good race indeed. 3rd and 5th for McLaren MB - maybe we are finally on to something.

It is great to see there may be life in McLaren but in my opinion the races this year are a bore. We are 3 races into the season and have yet to see a pass for the lead. Qualifying is a joke as far as entertainment value goes yet I still watch every session because I love F1. Bring back the 12 lap qualifying format or the 10 lap sprint races that have been proposed. This single lap stuff is making me crazy.

Spa last year was a great race. Kimi was unreal!
