Question::: How Many Cars On The Grid In Bahrain?

23 posts in this topic

I must admit that I am lost as to how many cars will show up at Bahrain and onwards. USF1 seems doubtful, Campus the same, Sauber? I have no idea, Lotus maybe a posibility but at leasdt we can expect Red Bull,McLaren,Ferrari. Thats a start but with that many guaranteed entries watching the racing could be like Indy a few years back, like who cared who won!!!!

Campos & USF1-nope

Virgin-if they find the spare parts yes but so far looking doubtful

BMW Sauber-of course, they're flying in Jerez, Kooba was quickest yesterday!

I'd say 22 cars would be there not including US F1 or Campos. Of course, if Formula One wanted to try and get the best chance to have 26 cars on the grid, then they should let somebody like Stefan GP in, who seem genuine and ready.

I hope so but I think it is going to be very hard for them.

i know its going to be tough, but usf1 all winter long looked millions of people in the eyes and said that they would be on the grid at bahrain.not people just in the usa but people around the world! iam not sure if the team ever said it would take place in pre season testing,but they did say that they would be on the grid at bahrain.i wont give-up untill i turn on speedtv on 13/3 /10 to see if it worked out.

I can't go against the majority on this one: From everything we've heard and seen in the last month, 22 would seem the most likely.

Well it seems that USF1 is about to "Pull the Plug"for 2010 and Campos don't seem real secure if Dallara are still constructing the Chassis, so what other teams will Bernie allow to compete this year ?? just to make up the grid numbers and not forgetting the MONEY for his pockets.

What a bloody c#ck up from the word go IMHO

I think that all of the teams apart from USF1 will be in Bahrain. I do hope that we do see all the cars on the grid.

I think Campos are hanging on by a thread & hopefully Stefan GP replace USF1 so 26, but realistically 24!

USF1 out of it !!

Campos well who knows but would have to be a Grid Filler at the very best, if they could afford to get a car to the track!!

Stefan GP - got me tossed this one, they have a car, who knows how competitive it will be, and they want to be in Bahrain, but Bernie and all the other upper eschelion SEAT polishers in this Farcial form of Motor Sport appear not to want them to compete ??

Like WHY.. at least they will fill some grid spots not like the Ëlected" newcomers that have no bloody hope.

So I guess my question is back to the original!

How many cars on the grid in Bahrain??

24. Unless Ferrari withdraw their opposition to Stefan GP and the FIA grant them a slot. Personally, I don't see either of those scenarios materialising.

Nah, HRT is full of middle-aged ladies suffering hot flushes and osteoporosis :D

:lol: I was expecting a comment from Steph there, something along the lines of "well you would know"!

But yes, an unfortunate acronym for a team name! :lol:

Ah, a Hamilton fan. As the Esteemed Founder of the First Church of Hamilton, I bid you welcome! T-shirts are on the rack, virgins are to the left of the altar and cheese to the right. Bring your own scotch. Amen.
