2009 Bahrain GP: Car Weight Issues

nicolas bostonContributor IApril 26, 2009

Well done to Bernie & Co. for allowing the disclosure of provisional Formula 1 car and driver weights post quali, pre-race!

I'll save you the team by team summary in relation to the provisional weight listings for the Bahrain Formula 1 Grand Prix as I think we've all seen enough of that analysis!

Red Bull's claim that the Toyota's were running lighter than air itself was accurate.

Kubica's car has less balance than a one legged drunk and as such he's filled his car to the absolute brim.

It's interesting to see that Mark Webber has opted for a relatively light fuel load. It seems he's keeping his car fast in order to pass the back-runners with conviction. I think this will be a good test of Webber's true passing ability. If all goes well and he doesn't crash, mechanically fail or get abducted by aliens, he should see some points.

Oh, and one last thing... When are they ditching young Piquet? The guy's had more chances to prove himself than I've had showers... I reckon Flavio would do a better job in the car at present!
