Will Red Bull struggle in the heat of Bahrain?

MyDrive | Infiniti Red Bull F1 Team – After a difficult weekend in China with their Renault powered engines, Red Bull will be looking to claw their way back into the Championship with a decent points haul in Bahrain this weekend.  Daniel Ricciardo started well although is concerned with their competitive edge in the hot conditions with Danill Kvyat happy with Friday practice session.

Both drivers are looking forward to Saturday although they have voiced concerns with windy weather conditions predicted during practice and qualifying which could blow sand on to the track.

DANIEL RICCIARDO
First Practice Session: Position: 5, Best Time: 1:38.455, Laps: 17
Second Practice Session: Position: 6, Best Time: 1:35.449, Laps: 27
I had an alright session, I think we’re looking pretty good. We’re more or less where we expect to be. We’re a little bit more competitive in cooler conditions so the night session should be good.

The tyre degradation is quite high here, it will probably be a two stop race, but we’ll see. It’s going to be windy tomorrow so we might have some sand on the track.

First Practice Session: Position: 9, Best Time: 1:38.661, Laps: 17
Second Practice Session: Position: 9, Best Time: 1:35.883, Laps: 23
It was a normal long run for me and we managed to get some good laps in. Tyre degradation was as expected but we were disrupted by the red flag.

There is some wind expected for tomorrow and we’ll see how that affects the car behaviour. It was a good Friday for us overall.
