Oh and Max Mosley has been banned from the GP, lol.

Bahrain Prince asked Mosley not to attend

Sheikh Salman Bin Hamad Al-Khalifa, the Crown Prince of Bahrain, says it would be inappropriate for FIA president Max Mosley to attend this weekend's race following revelations about him in a tabloid newspaper.

The FIA head was originally scheduled to attend the race, but a spokesman said on Thursday he would not travel to Bahrain as he was busy with legal matters.

"The FIA President was originally scheduled to attend the race in Bahrain but legal matters have detained him in London," he said.

The Times newspaper, however, reports that the Crown Price of Bahrain had asked Mosley not to attend the event in order to keep the focus on the grand prix.

It it unknown if the letter had been sent before or after the FIA confirmed Mosley would not travel to Bahrain.

"In light of the allegations, I suspect you may be deliberating on your planned attendance at the Grand Prix here in Bahrain later in the week," The Times quoted the Crown Prince as writing in a letter to Mosley.

"I therefore felt it important to convey the position of Bahrain and its people.

"Clearly of paramount importance is the success of the event for all concerned the Kingdom of Bahrain, Formula One and spectators. The focus quite rightly should be on the race.

"With great regret, I feel that under the current circumstances, it would be inappropriate for you to be in Bahrain at this time."

Ferrari and Massa dominate day one
Bahrain GP - Second practice

Ferrari this afternoon continued its domination of the opening day of practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix with Felipe Massa lapping almost a second clear of team-mate Kimi Raikkonen and leaving the rest trailing behind.

Massa saved his hot lap until the final minutes of the session, stopping the clocks with a best time of 1:31.420s, over a second faster than his own pole position at the circuit 12-months ago. Raikkonen topped the timesheets for much of the 90-minute session but will be content with his position.

Heikki Kovalainen led the way for the McLaren Mercedes team with the third fastest time while Lewis Hamilton ended the day fourth fastest and with a heavily damaged car.

Exiting turn six late in the session, Hamilton ran wide and with all four wheels on the kerbing, the MP4-23 swapped ends and shot Hamilton into the barriers on entry into turn eight. It was a fairly heavy impact on the right hand side of the car and the team will have plenty of work to prepare the car for Saturday practice.

Robert Kubica was a solid fifth fastest in his BMW Sauber while Nick Heidfeld again failed to show a great deal of pace in the sister F1.08 and was 17th of the 22 runners. Nico Rosberg and Kazuki Nakajima showed well for Williams Toyota with the sixth and eighth best times with the Red Bull Renault of David Coulthard in between.

Sebastien Bourdais impressed with the ninth best time in his Toro Rosso Ferrari, using soft tyres early on for a quick stint and a time that held up throughout the session.
Sebastian Vettel meanwhile struggled for pace and was 20th fastest.

Nelson Piquet rounded out the top ten for Renault while Fernando Alonso could have improved on his eventual 12th position had be not got himself into an unnecessary battle for track position with Adrian Sutil later in the session. Baulked by the Force India driver, Alonso proceeded to out-brake himself and then make contact with the side of Sutil. Still, it livened up the session.

Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello were 11th and 16th for Honda with Mark Webber and the Toyota duo of Jarno Trulli and Timo Glock in between. Given Toyota, like Ferrari, tested for six days at this circuit in the off-season, it is a disappointing start to the weekend for the team.

Towards the back and Giancarlo Fisichella edged out Force India Ferrari team-mate Adrian Sutil for 18th position while the Super Aguri Honda duo of Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson brought up the bottom of the timesheets behind Vettel.

Day one is complete and so far it is easy for Ferrari.

Hamilton unhurt in practice crash
Plenty of work for McLaren Mercedes in Bahrain

Lewis Hamilton emerged unhurt from a high speed crash during afternoon practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix on Friday.

The 23-year-old McLaren driver and championship leader lost control of his MP4-23 exiting turn seven, before hitting the barriers at an estimated 200kph.

The impact damaged the right hand side of the MP4-23, and Hamilton returned to the Sakhir pitlane on the back of a recovery motorcycle. It was the only major incident of the three hours of free practice today.

Also towards the end of the final 90-minute practice session for the day, Fernando Alonso collided with Force India's Adrian Sutil, causing the pair to spin.


The Spaniard seemed to lock the rear wheels of his Renault, causing him to misjudge an overtaking manoeuvre on his German rival.

News in brief from Bahrain
Photocopiers, investigations, surprise visits and more...

There are many stories emanating from the Formula One world, some having more importance than others. Here is a quick mix of the happenings taking place and information appearing in Bahrain.

Photocopier problems
In the Bahrain circuit's media centre on Thursday, several journalists tried to photocopy the News of the World article concerning FIA President Max Mosley, which has been making the rounds. Unfortunately, no self-service photocopier was available, as is the case at other tracks. The people in charge of the press room could not provide photocopies of the article either after explaining that their photocopier was suffering from technical problems...

Investigation underway
Max Mosley is planning a detailed response to News of the World and will undoubtedly bring the newspaper to court. An investigation is under way in order to identify the persons who put the plan to work; it has been said that answers will appear by the end of the month. Apparently, the British publication is preparing a sequel to their report, set to be published on Sunday.

McLaren at pitlane's end
After spending the first two races of the season in Melbourne and Sepang nestled between Red Bull and Toyota, McLaren was relegated to the far end of the pitlane in Bahrain after the circuit's organisers were ordered to do so.
Bernie Ecclestone had arranged for the team to settle into the larger garages despites its lack of recorded championship points last season in order to accomodate McLaren's need for a larger area in which to park its large motorhome. Following the objections of a few teams, the rules were applied and the team sent down the garage lane. Lewis Hamilton commented that he did not mind the peace and quiet of the new location.

Villeneuve makes an appearance
1997 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve is the surprise guest of the Speedcar series race in Bahrain this week-end, saying he was participating for the pleasure of it but also to see "my friends, the drivers, and the journalists." The Speedcar rides are similar to those of the NASCAR series, on which his career objectives remain focused: "I have to find a budget, and for the time being there's nothing. I'm starting from zero, but there is no better sales pitch than oneself and I'm still motivated. We want to stay in Montreal anyway, and from there it's very easy to race in the United States."

Australian F1 audience
Channel 10, the Australian television station which airs each Grand Prix, revealed that the 2008 edition reached 11th position in the ratings for that week behind a culinary show. 1.2 million viewers watched the very eventful race, including 627 000 in the State of Victoria where the Grand Prix was held. Only 199 000 watched from New South Wales, which includes Sydney, the country's largest city.
