Avoiding bad weather

The Ferrari, Toyota and BMW Sauber teams went to Bahrain this week to try to avoid the bad weather that has been disrupting pre-season testing in Spain and Portugal in recent weeks. But even going to the desert does not guarantee success. Today at Sakhir there was a sandstorm. The track closed after a few laps were run in the morning. Robert Kubica managed a total of 22 laps, Felipe Massa 17 and Timo Glock 14.

Maybe it would have better to have stayed in Europe...
