PLAYERS: Lewis Hamilton
Lewis Hamilton's impressive speed in qualifying hasn't translated into victories this season, but the McLaren driver is confident heading into the Bahrain Grand Prix. After opening the Formula One season with three straight third-place finishes, Hamilton leads the drivers' championship and has displayed a consistency that his top rivals have failed to match. While the Briton may have been frustrated after failing to convert two pole positions into victories, he said ''finishing on the podium for the first three races has been fantastic for us.'' Bahrain organizers hope to host the race this weekend despite protests and political unrest in the area. The event was canceled last year. Bahrain's sovereign wealth fund owns 50 percent of McLaren.
