  1. Ahahaha ! Cool pictures !

    Maaaaaan, look at Ricciardo ! This guy is so hungry to be famous… that Vettel should be extremely careful with this guy. I think Vettel’s days are numbered. Ricciardo looks dangerously handsome, charismatic and fast !

      @corrado-dub – Yes, and by comparison Vettel is a mere four time champion with Schumacher-esc brilliance…

      1. ….aaaand back to reality :)Good comment WilliamB

    2. I don’t think that Vettel is interested in fame. He has a rather low profile, considering what he has achieved. As for the “fast” part of your statement, we’ll see. I don’t think that Ricciardo is going to beat Vettel on equal conditions just yet, but at least it seems that he’s already closer than Webber.

    3. Ah, the one who just won the last nine races?

    4. I think you may be stretching the definition of “numbered”. He’s only 26, and he is defending his world championship for the fourth time in a row. Doesn’t sound like he is facing any imminent threat to me.

  2. Anyone knows what will be the McLaren livery for this race? Or they keep the “mobil” one?

    1. Apparently it’s the same livery as they used in Melbourne but without all the “Mobil” logos, except for where they usually are. Also, they will be running (or testing) a new nose by the looks of it.

      1. Actually its a new livery for this race. It will be a ESSO sponsored livery.

      2. I’ve heard mentions of Esso logos. Not sure what to make of that.

        This is McLaren’s new nose: Not a fan.

        1. @npf1 You are right about Esso – I’ve just seen a picture. It could be Exxon in Bahrain then…

          Same here regarding the nose. The original didn’t look too bad compared to other “finger” noses, but this new one is a step backwards aesthetically. If it gains them a few tenths though, I’m all for it!

        2. Now this McLaren new nose is an obvious evolution from their previous bad design, this is good news for them.

        3. Possibly not the world’s favourite oil company, but it’s local branding I guess, like Proton on the side of the Lotus (quite fitting, given its current performance) and whatever product the Mercs are advertising this weekend.

          Sarcastic applause to McLaren for actually making the nose look worse. I hope it’s a second slower.

  3. Ricciardo is smiling more than Bon Jovi. It’s getting really annoying.

  4. That’s a very smiley set of pictures! (apart from Kvyat)

  5. Nice pictures! I wonder what that Mercedes sign could be?

  6. Nice pictures!

  7. NOT a single Sauber pic. Lotus, Redbull, Ferrari, Caterham, Force India, Toro Rosso, McLaren, Mercedes, Williams….The only 2 teams out of your photos….Sauber and Marussia.
    Not so fair.

  8. Does Kimi ever smile?
