Free Practice 1 from Bahrain // Formula 1 World Championship 2012

Published by Christine

Under something of a cloud, the action in Bahrain gets underway with the first of three practice sessions. Nico Rosberg will likely still be riding high on a cloud of his maiden win, but with higher temperatures, Mercedes will want to get as much tyre information as they can ahead of the race. Meanwhile, Force India are already shaken up by troubles in the country, but are concentrating on the job in hand as best as they can. Ninety minutes of practice coming right up, who can get off to a good start?
