So Nico Rosberg, what a way to mark your 10th Anniversary in Formula 1.
Just as he did on his debut in Bahrain in 2006, he set the fastest lap of the race, but unlike 10 years ago, he topped that with a win, his second of the season. Life is looking good at this early stage for the Championship leader.
It was also the 10th Anniversary for Toro Rosso at the weekend too and they celebrated their first ever points in Bahrain when Max Verstappen came home 6th.
On a much lesser scale, Bahrain 2006 was my Formula 1 commentary debut. It’s one of the reasons I quite like returning to the Kingdom, it’s always nice to head back to the place where my F1 career began.
And to be fair it’s also a great Grand Prix to work at , the organisers go out of their way to help the media do their jobs and the facilities really are first class. As you can see, our Sky F1 commentary box has a great view of the pit lane and we’ve got plenty of room to work in. I can see Ted Kravitz marching up and down all afternoon from this vantage point.
