Massa wins in Bahrain

Ferrari's Felipe Massa won the Bahrain F1 grand prix after starting from pole but it was McLaren's Lewis Hamilton who stole the limelight with a record third consecutive podium finish in his first three F1 races after finishing second again.

I think this time Massa did well to take advantage of his pole position and lead the race from the start but towards the end Hamilton put him under pressure and I think its a question of a few more races before we see Hamilton winning his first race. Kimi Raikkonen completed the podium places with third.

It wasn't all that rosy this time around for world champion Fernando Alonso who for the first time this season finished outside the top three places and had to settle for fifth position after Nick Heidfeld snatched fourth from him.

Heidfeld fourth position and teammate Robert Kubica's sixth has shown once again that so far this season BMW-Sauber are the third best team relegating Renault to fourth. Renault had Giancarlo Fisichella finishing in the points in eighth position with team mate Heikki Kovalainen behind him. Toyota scored points for the first time this season with Jarno Trulli finishing seventh.

Australian Mark Webber could not finish a race for the first time this season and he must be hoping that its not a repeat of last season where he could hardly finish a race. His team mate David Coultard also did not finish the race after a driveshaft failure and so Red Bull has a lot of things to think about for the next race in Barcelona.

Three drivers are on 22 points and it couldn't be more exciting but going to Barcelona the question is : will Hamilton win his first race at Barcelona? We will know the answers in nearly a month's time.

Its too close to call now between Ferrari and McLaren .

You're right Tyndale because at the moment the top three drivers from the last three races have come from these two teams. I am just wondering who is going to have a slip if first.
