DRIVERS 1 – Lewis HAMILTON (Mercedes) 2 – Sebastian VETTEL (Ferrari) 3 – Nico ROSBERG (Mercedes) TV UNILATERAL Lewis, your first Bahrain pole – you said on Thursday how important it would be to be on pole this weekend – and an emphatic one as well.

TEAM REPRESENTATIVES – John BOOTH (Manor), Rob WHITE (Renault Sport F1), Eric BOULLIER (McLaren), Maurizio ARRIVABENE (Ferrari), Monisha KALTENBORN (Sauber), Toto WOLFF (Mercedes) PRESS CONFERENCE Toto, we’ll start with you.

MONZA, Italy — Next year’s F-1 schedule consists of a record 20 races and runs from mid March until the end of November. All 19 events this season are retained and India joins, although it remains tentative until the new circuit passes the FIA inspection.
