  1. That second ferrari shot of the F138 is stunning and is now my new screen saver! Love how the nose looks!

  2. The Mercedes really does look wonderfully pointy from the side. And that second picture of Perez looks amazing- more like a painting than a real picture.

  3. The second Ricciardo pic though…. Awesome!

  4. Rosberg looks pretty warm in the garage:


    I also noticed that Bottas is running a curved rear wing and Maldonado a straight one. Is the curved wing from the launch spec?

  5. Is it Zain or Zoin on the McLarens? I assume it is Vodafones company in Bahrain?

    1. Zain. They’re a Kuwaiti telecom group, and a regional partner of Vodafone.

    2. @force-maikelthis articlegives the gist of their connection, but yes in essence it’s the Bahrain part of Vodafone.

    3. Yeah, Zain are a major presence in the mobile marktet in the Middle East.

  6. Zain
    It was Vodafone for several years and was changed few years back to Zain

    1. Germany does have a race. But fully agree on the others, especially France.

    2. They can’t afford it. And the race-sanctioning fees aren’t the problem – their eco omies are rubbish.
