The Grand Prix of Bahrain

The fourth race of the 2015 Formula 1 season is here, and the Bahrain International Circuit at Sakhir is the venue for it. This will be the 11th time that a Grand Prix will take place in Bahrain, and for a second year in a row, the race at BIC will be a night race.

The odds are predicting another close race between Mercedes and Ferrari, a week after Sebastian Vettel kept both, Lewis Hamilton the race winner at Shanghai, and Nico Rosberg, honest throughout the weekend in China.

However, there are many other surprises and notions in store for us this weekend that we have to watch-out for, when all the 20 cars take to the track in Sakhir. So, for your benefit, we have made a list of the 10 best things you should definitely take notice of during the 2015 Bahrain Grand Prix

#1 What will be Rosberg’s tantrum this time?

Rosberg has to win to keep his critics shut

Accusing your teammate is not a noble thing to do, but drivers, especially the ones under fire, always tend to that, in some way or another. Most of the times, in general, we hear about the lack of preferential treatment from a squad, but, Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg went one better last weekend.

After the chequered flag dropped in China, Rosberg, during the post-race news conference, in front of the whole F1 press corps, alleged that Lewis Hamilton had ruined his race-pace by backing him up into Sebastian Vettel. Although, Hamilton said he was just managing is race efficiently, but that did not amuse the German.

The jury is still out on whether the current World Champion did actually compromise his teammate’s race or not, but one thing is for sure; Rosberg is bringing his A-Game this year, at least in the tantrum department.
