The 2006 Bahrain Grand Prix Preview

After months of winter testing, it's finally time to end the guessing game and see who is hot and who is not. Tom Keeble previews the opening round at Sakhir and rates the teams' chances of success in the Bahrain Grand Prix

The Formula One circus arrives at Bahrain for the opening race of the season. Having pounded out thousands of laps in testing, it is time to find out which teams have done their homework properly.

Analysis

With a brand new knock-out concept for qualifying, there could be an interesting grid if any of the teams get their strategies wrong. That said, with the return of tyre changes in pitstops, poor qualifying positions are unlikely to prevent the best cars from showing well, so a good race should be in prospect.
