For the first time this season a McLaren driver is not the favourite for the race win according to the VitalF1.com users.

Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button have previously been the favourites amongst our readers going into a race weekend, but for the Bahrain Grand Prix a Mercedes has come out on top.

However it isn’t Nico Rosberg who topped the poll after winning his first race last weekend in China, it is his team-mate seven-time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher.

27% of the votes cast believe that Schumacher will win his 92 Grand Prix and first for Mercedes on Sunday. Lewis Hamilton with 24% is second favourite ahead of team-mate Jenson Button with 20%.

Fernando Alonso and Nico Rosberg both took 10% with Kimi Raikkonen taking 5%.

The Red Bull’s of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber again remained un-fancied with both drivers taking just 2% each.

Michael Schumacher 27%

Lewis Hamilton 24%

Jenson Button 20%

Fernando Alonso 10%

Nico Rosberg 10%
