    Vettel heavier on fuel than Toyotas




    Sebastian Vettel is set to emerge as the closest challenge to Toyota drivers Jarno Trulli and Timo Glock in tomorrow's Bahrain Grand Prix, according to AUTOSPORT's qualifying analysis.

    The Red Bull driver qualified third carrying fuel that should allow him to complete four more laps than Trulli, and six more than Glock, prior to the first round of pitstops.

    The lap time penalty paid by Vettel for carrying 10.5kg of fuel more than Trulli, accounts for around around 0.37s of his 0.58s deficit to the Italian in qualifying.

    Pitstop prediction:

    1. Trulli 1:33.431 648.5 40.5 14.0
    2. Glock 1:33.712 643 35 12.0
