      @blunt – I admit, I like it too. A lot of people dislike Bahrain because they think a circuit in the middle of the desert is boring, but I disagree. I admit that I don’t have much of an eye for photography, but I like the way the muted background colours make the cars look bolder and brighter, and they produce some very dramatic shots – like this one, and this one – even if it is a little boring to look at on television. I’d still much rather look at the desert than something like the colour-changing hotel at Yas Island, which looks like some pulsating alien organ.

    Nice to see some pics of the Force India considering they were unviewed from all televised screening today!

    Six times as many shots of Force India as there were on TV – and that’s only because Webber was going past Di Resta in Q3.

    Haha, Webber looks like he’s posing for an advert in that top three picture. Love this one too http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/redb-vett-bahr-2012-1.jpg
