“Missing: Podium Finishes. If lost, please return to Maranello.” That’s an advert you might find in tomorrow’s Italian newspapers.
Of course, I jest, but Ferrari once again had a very anonymous race in Bahrain today as Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen crossed the line in ninth and tenth place respectively. They scored as many points as they have championships: three.
Having shown an impressive long-run pace during practice, many expected Raikkonen and Alonso to be in the fight for the final podium position behind the Mercedes drivers, but neither could get close to eventual third place finisher Sergio Perez. After making three stops, the safety car worked against the Italian marque, and ultimately denied its drivers any decent points.
Speaking to NBCSN’s Will Buxton after the race, Alonso made no secret of his disappointment after recording his lowest finish at the Bahrain Grand Prix since 2008.
