F errari simply feels at home in Bahrain. Felipe Massa set the first best time in practice on Friday, Fernando Alonso grabbed his place in the sun in the dress rehearsal before qualifying. The Bahrain International Circuit is a special track for the Italians. Scuderia has already won four games there.

Alonso with a spectacular spin

Alonso turned his best lap in 1.33.247 minutes. The Spaniard previously caused a sensation with a spectacular spin at the exit of the second corner. But that didn't get him out of rhythm. His time was enough not to give Sebastian Vettel a chance. The German was 0.101 seconds short of his rival.

Vettel's internal competitor, Mark Webber, came third. The Australian lost 0.133 seconds on top. Kimi Räikkönen didn't quite make it to the front, but with fourth place he underscored the good shape of Lotus. Fifth place went to Lewis Hamilton, who had a moment of shock at the end of training. The left rear wheel suspension of his Mercedes F1 W04 appeared to be broken. With difficulty he dragged himself to the pits.

Force India extremely fast

An upward trend could Book Romain Grosjean for yourself. The Frenchman was now in first place in the classification in the Lotus with the hard tires. On one lap, the medium tires were enough for sixth position.

Force India can also tick off this training session as a success. Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta finished seventh and eighth. Sutil even set the fastest time in the first sector. The Indians have been consistently performing well throughout the weekend. Sutil didn't feel completely at home in the car on Friday, but the long runs made him optimistic about the race. He also assessed the chances of moving into Q3 as positive.

Bianchi's car is on fire

Nico Rosberg appeared not having really found a rhythm with the ninth position. On Friday the Silver Arrows were still fighting with the rear tires. The Sauber honor saved Nico Hülkenberg with tenth place. His team-mate Esteban Gutierrez finished last. However, he also seemed to have other tasks - at least that's what the 29 laps suggest, which make him by far the most industrious drivermade.

The top ten were out of reach for Felipe Massa this time. He set the first best time on Friday. At McLaren there is still a lot of room for improvement with positions twelve and 13. The best of the backbenchers was Charles Pic at the Caterham. Several problems plagued the Marussisa pilots. The KERS went on strike at Max Chilton's, and Jules Bianchi's car even caught fire.
