    Friday analysis - advantage Ferrari in Bahrain

    Ferrari came out on top in both Friday’s practice sessions for the Bahrain Grand Prix, and even discounting Felipe Massa’s overall fastest time of 1m 31.420s which was set with a low fuel load on the dusty and slippery track, the red cars appeared to have a four-tenths advantage over their closest challenger, the McLarens, which were chased by BMW Sauber and Williams. We take a team-by-team look at the early progress in Sakhir…

    Ferrari
    Felipe Massa, 1m 32.233s, P1/1m 31.420s, P1
    Kimi Raikkonen, 1m 32.350s, P2/1m 32.327s, P2

    Massa was happy straight away with his set-up, and really got going in the afternoon as track conditions improved. After his recent ill fortune, he was relieved to be the fastest man all day. Raikkonen did not seem at all put out by his team mate’s speed on his final run, and the two of them exuded an air of quiet confidence.

    McLaren
    Heikki Kovalainen, 1m 32.868s, P5/1m 32.752s, P3
    Lewis Hamilton, 1m 32.705s, P4/1m 32.847s, P4

    McLaren spent a lot of time honing brake performance on a track that is notoriously hard on the stoppers. Kovalainen had a trouble-free day and was third fastest in the afternoon, but Hamilton damaged his MP4-23 after it got away from him over the slippery kerb in the fast chicane. The damage is repairable, and in any case he was due for a change of engine and transmission.

    BMW Sauber
    Robert Kubica, 1m 33.333s, P7/1m 32.915s, P5
    Nick Heidfeld, 1m 34.106s, P14/1m 34.023s, P17

    Kubica and Heidfeld pursued different programmes in each session. The Pole went for the fast times, especially in the afternoon, and was encouraged to be close to the McLarens again. The German did the race running and reported no technical problems, but was not entirely satisfied with the balance of his F1.08.

    Williams
    Nico Rosberg, 1m 32.415s, P3/1m 33.022s, P6
    Kazuki Nakajima, 1m 33.121, P6/1m 33.098s, P8

    To the relief of everyone in the team, Williams bounced back after their tyre temperature problems in Malaysia. Rosberg was very quick in the morning, and remained in the top six in the afternoon. Nakajima shadowed him closely, and likewise reported no problems.

    Red Bull
    David Coulthard, 1m 33.788s, P9/1m 33.048s, P7
    Mark Webber, 1m 33.950s, P12/1m 33.782s, P13

    Coulthard looked strong all day on a circuit he likes, despite being less than fully satisfied with traction and rear-end stability. Webber was happier in the afternoon.

    Toro Rosso
    Sebastien Bourdais, 1m 34.235s, P15/1m 33.197s, P9
    Sebastian Vettel, 1m 34.321s, P16/1m 34.787s, P20

    Bourdais was pleased to be able to get into the groove in the morning, and to stay there in the afternoon as he made the top 10 on his first acquaintance with the track. Vettel, however, had a tough day. He found his STR2B a handful in the morning, with low levels of grip, and not much better in the afternoon, and faces an evening of data study with his engineers to make significant set-up changes for Saturday morning.

    Renault
    Nelson Piquet, 1m 33.981s, P13/1m 33.247s, P10
    Fernando Alonso, 1m 33.815s, P10/1m 33.755s, P12

    Piquet felt he had a productive afternoon and was quite optimistic for Saturday, but Alonso struggled for grip all day, and had that unnecessary incident with Adrian Sutil in the first corner right at the end of the second session.

    Honda
    Jenson Button, 1m 34.915s, P18/1m 33.710s, P11
    Rubens Barrichello, 1m 35.174s, P19/1m 33.966s, P16

    Button felt that Honda made a reasonable start to their weekend, while Barrichello did a lot of brake work. Even so the Brazilian admitted that he lacked confidence in them and was thus losing time during his new-tyre runs.

    Toyota
    Jarno Trulli, 1m 33.539s, P8/1m 33.822s, P14
    Timo Glock, 1m 33.929s, P11/1m 33.856s, P15

    Neither Toyota driver had any real problems, apart from one undisclosed glitch on Glock’s TF108 in the morning.

    Force India
    Giancarlo Fisichella, 1m 34.892s, P17/1m 34.388s, P18
    Adrian Sutil, 1m 35.429s, P20/1m 34.405s, P19

    Fisichella struggled with understeer and oversteer initially, then lost his chance for a new-tyre run in the late afternoon due to a problem with his Force India’s rear wing. Sutil, too, lost his good run in the afternoon after the incident with Alonso.

    Super Aguri
    Takuma Sato, 1m 36.536s, P22/1m 35.288s, P21
    Anthony Davidson, 1m 36.145s, P21/1m 35.712s, P22

    Both Super Aguri drivers reported problems obtaining a decent balance, partly because of the crosswind and partly because of the general lack of grip for most of practice.
