Short Preview of Bahrain Grand Prix 2015:
Bahrain International Circuit is a dedicated F1 circuit and will be the first race in the middle east this season, Pirelli will bring white-medium and Yellow-Soft tyres to the Bahrain grand prix . THe temprature will be a lot more higher than compared to Chinese and Australia grand prix earlier in the season but since the race is set to start in the evening the condition of the track wont be as hostile as it were in Malaysia last week.
The circuit itself offers four long straights combined with slow corners which means teams will be looking to setup cars to achieve good top speed without giving away the mechanical grip for the slow corners. While drivers do have overtaking opportunities shown by the statistics with only half the races won by driver starting in the pole positions.
Last year it was Nico Rosberg who registered the fastest lap time and started the race in pole position but it was Lewis Hamilton who won the Bahrain Grand Prix. Hamilton used a two-stop strategy and we can expect the same this year as far as the weather is concerned their is not chance of rain but drivers will feel the hottest track temperature of the year in Bahrain.
