Fernando Alonso has won this race thrice and Ferrari have won it another three times beyond their 2010 win together. They are clearly the favorites.
The first Grand Prix I ever watched? Bahrain 2006. Good battle between Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher. The next year Nick Heidfeld made Fernando Alonso look silly. I'm more-than-convinced that if you planted some trees around this track and had built in the U.K. or France or whatever in the 1960s it would be a firm favorite on the calendar. It's not a bad track at all, a little too long, but mostly it's just weird and new and different and that makes it uncomfortable.
Nico Rosberg won the last race against teammate Michael Schumacher. Other drivers to beat Schumacher on the same team as him? Felipe Massa, Rubens Barrichello, Eddie Irvine, and Johnny Herbert. Rosberg's career is going nowhere.
Lewis Hamilton has finished third in the first three races after completing three full seasons since his World Championship. That's three threes, or 27. 27 was one the numbers that Gilles Villeneuve used, the other being 12 (three times Hamilton's car number: 4). Jacques Villeneuve used both 12 and 27 when racing in CART. Jacques Villeneuve was second in his first F1 season, first in his second, fifth in his third. Lewis Hamilton? Same story. Both have driven NASCAR vehicles, both have dabbled in music, and both have displayed different hair and facial hair styles throughout their careers. Villeneuve was the third Canadian driver in F1, the first being Al Pease, who was born in England, where Lewis Hamilton was born.
