The combination of sand and wind mixed up the finishing order of Free Practice 3, but did this translate to qualifying as well? F1 Digest will guide you through all the happenings of Saturday in Bahrain.

Free Practice 3

A mix and match session, with the drivers you thought would do well struggling and others shining in the face of adversity. Main ones to worry about: Hamilton and Heidfeld.


Sato slid off track and into the wall which may or may not have ruined some people's laps. Kubica brought home BMWs first ever pole position, whilst Alonso struggled in Q3.


BMW are on cloud nine for their achievement today and are hoping to continue in to the race, Button and Rosberg are also happy with their positions on the grid. Nakajima appears to be letting the side down.
