Bahrain Grand Prix 2014: B/R Experts Predict Pole, Race Winner and More

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterApril 4, 2014

The Bahrain Grand Prix is upon us, and our Bleacher Report F1 team are predicting the key results in this year's race.

Mercedes have dominated the early season races, but behind them there are signs that Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull are returning to form.

Additionally, the dry heat of Sakhir International Circuit throws up another challenge for the drivers. With that in mind, how do we see the race panning out?

Here are our best guesses:

How the scores are calculated

The right answer earns you one point, except in the case of total finishers, where you can be two cars either side. If you predict the exact correct number of finishers, however, you pick up two points.
