Bahrain GP - Practice Two Results

Results: Karthikeyan 22nd (1:39.649), di Resta 23rd (no time set), Hulkenberg 24th (no time set).

No time set for the Sahara Force India boys as they wanted to get back to the hotel before it got dark for safety reasons; after what happened earlier in the week you can't really blame then, can you? Although having said this they have received a little criticism for this from certain people.

Deputy team principle Robert Fernley said:

"We'll do what our crew are comfortable with and that's leaving in daylight. It's a decision based on emotion rather than logic".

... that really shows how much team spirit Sahara Force India has!

Although this decision not to run means the team has less data, it shouldn't really affect the performance as during FP2 many members of the team were analysing other cars on track - looking at laptime, track temperature and tyre wear data. Meanwhile the other half of the team were doing the Saturday setup work (this includes fitting the race engines and gearboxes) that would usually be done after FP2 was over.

As for Narain Karthikeyan he was last of the runners, once again very slow - 1.8 seconds down on teammate de la Rosa. We'll have to wait for the post-Friday quotes to see the reason.
