• Felipe Massa has won the last two Bahrain Grands Prix, and also scored the pole position and fastest lap in the 2007 race.

• Kimi Raikkonen has finished on the podium in the last four races at Sakhir, coming home third three times in a row from 2005 and second last year. In 2006, the Finn came through to third from 22nd on the grid following a suspension failure in qualifying. His comeback, gaining 19 places, was the biggest of the last 15 years, beating the record of Juan Pablo Montoya (20th to 2nd in the 2005 German GP) and Jarno Trulli (22nd to 4th in the 2006 US GP).
