Bahrain 2008: The race // Robert Kubica aims to turn pole position into a race victory

Published by Mr. C

Race day is upon us and yesterday's stunning qualifying lap from Robert Kubica has given Formula 1 some light relief following a week of bad press and controversy. We may have awoken to yet more newspaper allegations this morning, but today is all about the racing.

For the first time Kubica gets to lead the field for the installation lap, and then hopefully into the first corner. He has the advantage of being on the clean side of the grid, and the assumption is he's running lighter than the cars behind. Whatever happens the first corner and lap will be must-watch-blink-and-you'll-miss-it television.

Further back we have have Trulli, Rosberg, Button and Alonso all putting their respective teammates to shame. What can they do from back there, and who'll pick up the last of the points positions? The battle of the midfield is sure to be exciting today.

The UK's television coverage begins in just a few moments, it's also online. Live timing screens will hopefully be offering a better service than yesterday.

Please let us know how and where you're watching as well as any thoughts you have on the build up and the race.
