Bahrain - A lost day
Sakhir, 12th February - The weather conditions at Bahrain didn't change for the whole day and the visibility in the capital Manama was extremely scarce and the helicopter for medical assistance in case of emergency at the track could not start. The Sakhir circuit remained in silence and the three teams - Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, BMW and Toyota - participating in these test sessions remained at the box.
Another extremely precious test day has been lost. There are just over twelve test days left before the start of the 2009 Championship. Tomorrow the Scuderia has planned the test session with Kimi Raikkonen behind the wheel, but it is still not clear what the weather will be like. The forecast is not very optimistic.
