The race on the second track configuration in Bahrain promises to be interesting and tight. Short circle, little space, persistent problems with roundabouts.
This time I decided to make my choice against the Ferrari team, despite the fact that Leclair showed a pretty good result in qualifying, becoming the fourth. Nevertheless, the language does not turn to call Ferrari the third force after Mercedes and Red Bull. Drivers from Racing Point, Renault, McLaren and even Alpha Tauri are unlikely to agree with this question. Leclair himself confirms this: You need to remain realistic. I do not think that we will be as fast as in qualifying – I doubt that my car is the fourth fastest, but I will try to achieve the maximum result.
A week ago, Leclair qualified 12th, but the Monegasque could not significantly improve his position, finishing 10th. In fact, he moved up two places only due to the retirements of Stroll and Perez, who were faster than him. Vettel had a similar situation – 13th at the start and 11th at the finish. The new track configuration retains three straights where Ferrari drivers will be vulnerable. I think that the race for Vettel and Leclerc is unlikely to be very successful, so I don’t think the Monegasque will get into the top 6. However, bookmakers are in no hurry to bet against the top 6 for as long as they like, but not in the opposite direction. Therefore, you will have to bet against Leclair’s getting into the top 6 not directly, but indirectly. I believe that Gasley and Riccardo will be higher in the final protocol.

I would also like to take a chance and bet that Sainz will be in the top 6. A week ago, McLaren performed great Norris 4th, Sainz 5th, despite the fact that they started 15th and 8th respectively. High odds for this event allows you to take risks.
In the absence of Hamilton, three drivers will fight for victory at once: Bottas, Verstappen and Russell. The fight will be tight, and given the short circle, circular traffic, possible incidents on the track and the appearance of safety cars, it is unlikely that the dominance of one of the pilots will be too great, so I propose to put on not too large breaks in the group of leading pilots.
