Can't wait. Now coverage is on Sky - its wall to wall F1 at the weekend .

Lets just hope the championship is a bit closer than last year though.

All the best Lewis, Jenson and Paul

Set my alarm to start but was too tired 4hrs sleep) to watch the race, saw the start. Just seen results on the website. Will be able to rewatch the race this afternoon on Sky in peace and quiet.

Nice results. looking forward to an exciting year, hoping Lotus will add a bit of extra spice to the races and results.

I got to watch the race because I was woken up by a small child I was hoping to watch the race later on Sky+.

Well done Lewis - now more of the same tomorrow and, in particular, Sunday please.
Good luck Jenson and Paul too.

It was indeed. The mark of a great driver, being able to win with sub-standard machinery .

Huge fan of Michael Schumacher, looks like their 2012 car is still a dog. Nice to see Red Bull not dominating... I was very impressed with Perez and Sauber in Malaysian GP!

I am not sure the Mercedes is a dog - admittedly its not looking too great at the moment, but is better relative to the front runners than last year's car. However, I think Nico Rosberg is showing his rather limited ability. He needs to up his game pretty quickly....

Nice to see the conspiracy theorists are out and about, claiming that Perez was ordered by the Ferrari-powered Sauber team not to beat Alonso

Well done Nico and Mercedes! I didn't think Nico had that sort of performance in him.

Fantastic race, loads of overtaking, drivers keeping it hard but fair. Jenson in particular with some brilliant manoeuvres . Roll-on Bahrain.

Yeah, nice to see lots of overtaking.
The cars and drivers seem to have a similar quality, so we might be looking to a very close championship this year.

The teams seemed to have worked hard on their 2011 cars and designs making them a competitor, opposing the Sauber Redbull.

Were Redbull sleeping after 2011? Or will they really pose a threat towards the 2012 championship?

You can never write-off Red Bull because a) they have Vettel b) Webber is no slouch either, but most of all c) they have Adrian Newey. They obviously got most out of the blown diffuser last year - and so have a lot of ground to make up now that that loophole has gone - but I would not bet against them yet....

Mercedes seem to have got their act together - although I wonder what would have happened to their tyres if it had been hotter?

Can't wait for Bahrain next week!

Its nice to see a fellow F1'er around the forum!  I can't wait for Bahrain, I think it will really help see who is the real deal in the season so far.  If its hot enough it should really stress the cars and show some possible weaknesses.

I'm not sure about Merc, their double DRS, as I've heard it called, might make a difference in qualy, but their race pace in the first two races was way off.  Your right Warsprite about the tires, it will be interesting to see how Merc does on hot tires.

Don't count out Lotus, I don't know what really happened with Kimi in China but they have looked good in practice and qualy.  Going from 2nd to 14th in 2 laps was horrible to watch and I'm not even a Kimi fan.

His tyres were obviously in bad shape toward the end of the race, but I think he must have completely shot them when he went wide on to the marbles - I can't remember the lap or who the dice was with at the time as thre was soooo much going on in that final third of the race! - I have never seen that level of drop off before. But yes the Lotus looks pretty handy - and I think Grosjean is showing he can actually be a really good driver.

Qualy for Bahrain was good, Redbull seems to have found their pace.  I was hoping for Rosberg to be higher up.  Good luck to JB, hope he can win it!

I think Bahrain is going to be a race where the pitstops will decide the winner.
The heat and track is going to take it's toll on those tyres, esp on corner 10. Wrong line and those tyres will pay the price.

Redbull seem to have found their pace, Maclaren are still ahead I think. Mercedes is 1 car down, due to MS having tail problems in Qualy.
Ferrari, well that is something else. Sunday drive through the desert? Points? If they are very lucky.

Good Luck to JB and LH.

If Lewis didn't have bad luck he would have no luck at all.....

What was Rosberg doing? TWICE - to Lewis then Alonso?

The race wasn't as good as China and still no one has claimed dominance yet, I guess the European campaign will be more forth telling.  I was very happy for Kimi and Grosjean with the effort they gave. 

As far as Rosberg goes.....WTF?!?   I hate it when stewards say they will investigate after the race, that just takes away from the spectacle and where people truly come across the finish line.  I still have yet to read anything on what kind of penalty Rosberg should/will serve!?!

One last thing....WHY IS KARTHIKEYAN RACING!  What a joke for F1, only the finest should be racing.

Article 10.4 of the F1 sporting regulations says: "Manoeuvres liable to hinder other drivers, such as deliberate crowding of a car beyond the edge of the track or any other abnormal change of direction, are not permitted."

The stewards need to learn the rules.

But the weird thing is that Rosberg radio'd that Lewis had HIM off the road!! I see the stewards are taking no action, but to me that was downright dangerous....

McLaren look hopeless on race pace.....

Karthikeyan brings money and is just about good enough for a superlicence - there has been plenty worse than him in the past - but probably not many

NO PENALTY FOR ROSBERG  That sets a dangerous precedent IMO.  They covered this issue last year with extreme blocking, you must leave room at least the width of a car when blocking.

I wonder what was different about Rosberg's move and Schumacher's on Barrichello a few years back? Seems odd. Maybe Lewis was behind the Mercedes and when he actually got alongside he was off the track? i.e. it was his choice to continue with the move as opposed to back off? as opposed to Barrichello who was alongside Schumacher who then tried to send him into the wall....

Seems inconsistent though given how dangerous Rosberg's manoeurvre was.
