The Toyota drivers have locked-out the Bahrain front row and Sebastian Vettel is in P3 and looking very competitive given his qualifying fuel load. The Brawns will want to capitalise on their early season form and Lewis Hamilton looks quite confident sitting in P5. But who is your favourite to win the race tomorrow? Bearing in mind that Toyota have never won a race before, the odds are mixed, and the Red Bull RB5 really does look awesome at the moment. This prediction is possibly the hardest of all the races so far in 2009…
Looking at the fuel loads of each the top ten qualifiers, I would have go with Sebastian Vettel looking the most handiest of drivers out there, but Toyota could surprise and if they get away well on the first lap of tomorrow’s race, then it may not be easy for the following Red Bull and Brawn cars to catch up. Also of note is the fact that Timo Glock is lighter than his team mate pole-sitter, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the German was able to jump Jarno Trulli, a driver who sometimes likes to take a nap during races.
Have your say, who’s your favourite to win the 2009 Bahrain Grand Prix?[poll id=”43″]
