    Bahrain: Two pit stops strategy, as an option.

    If the Ferrari car did not find its form in Bahrain, and all the talk of " Yes, the reason for Melbourne failure" was not evident during the FP and Q.
    Should the team use two pit stops strategy (last year the top teams used one-stop strategy) as see if they can close the gap between the front runners?
    Knowing that the pit stop in Bahrain averaging about 25 seconds.

    We need a "focus on 2020" option.


    Disappointed Since 2010

    if they racing for 5th and 6th; and 7th and 8th has no chance to beat them then risking one car might be ok. Not a lot of confidence on the mechanics so it has to be good signs that risking an extra stop could yield results

    Why not... last year Sebastian suffered a lot in the last laps. I would like to see all GPs with more cars trying different strategies.

    Tires tell the tale of 1 or 2 stops.

    Merc cars will probably do one stop.
    Seb will need two as one of them will be to replace the front wing taken off by Max

    I think a lot wend wrong for Vettel and Ferrari in Melbourne. Granted that Mercedes and RBr were really fast, but it was a first race with new regulations. Back in 2012 Mclaren started strong, but Ferrari and RBR cought up quite nicely as well. Ferrari has been strong on Bahrain for years now, even in 2015 Ferrari were very close to Mercedes and Mercedes was very dominant that year.

    Looking at FP1 Aanf FP2, its definitely two pit stops strategy. The difference between the two tyers on light fuel can be about 4-5 seconds.
    Soft for 12-14 laps, medium for 30 laps and finally about 12 laps with soft ones,
