HONDA COMES IN FOURTH PLACE IN BAHRAIN! [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 03-12-2006 12:17

There were no shortage of strong-looking teams in Bahrain. Excellent performances from Renault, Ferrari, McLaren, Honda and Williams mean that the prospects for a season of close, competitive racing look excellent.

But at the other end of the scale, the first race of the season produced ONE CLEAR LOSER - TOYOTA. Despite having one of the biggest budgets in the paddock and two highly-rated drivers in the shape of Ralf Schumacher and Jarno Trulli, the team found themselves battling with the backmarkers throughout the weekend.

It's too bad Honda had the two mechanical issues (clutch at the start for Button and gearbox for Barrichello), I think they could have gotten closer to the podium if it weren't for those issues and the fighting between the team mates early on -it seemed like they were losing 2 seconds a lap while they were trying to get ahead of each other rather than helping each other.

Didn't Button finish 5th? (I didn't see the whole race).

At least untill now that was the best start for BAR (now Honda) ever! Hopefully in Sepang they could have sorted out the problems. I think both should be able to finish in points.
