After comfortably winning in China, Lewis Hamilton has been beaten by Nico Rosberg in the practice sessions before this encounter. This could mean his German teammate is set to put up more of a fight in the Middle East. Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel are also both within touch of the two time champion in the Ferraris.
All this means that we could be in for a more exciting race than the processions in China and Australia. Another Ferrari win such as that in Malaysia could be possible due to their lighter tyre use in the extreme heat. On the soft tyres the Italian team were up to 0.5 seconds a lap faster than the Mercedes. Although it is unknown how much fuel was in either car, meaning it could be very different in the race.
Meanwhile, at the other end of the race McLaren-Honda could be ready to finally get close to the points. Fernando Alonso has said that the car could make it to the second qualifying stage this weekend, and he had the 11th fastest time in practice.
