Arabia and the Arabs: From the Bronze Age to the Coming of Islam. Thus the pre-Islamic ethno-linguistic situation in eastern Arabia appear to have been a mixed tribal population of partially Christianised Arabs of diverse origins who probably spoke different old Arabian vernaculars; a mobile Persian-speaking population, possibly of traders and administrators, with strong links to Persia, with which they maintained close contact; a sedentary, non-tribal community of Aramaic-speaking farmers; a Persian clergy, which we know for certain, used Syriac as a language of liturgy and general writing, probably alongside Persian as a spoken language.

Distant views of the majority of the track are also included. Although a portion of the track remains out of sight due to the Batelco Grandstand, you may also follow the the race on 3 giant screens.
Enjoy the cars break heavily after the main straight and take a drastic turn. With overtaking opportunities for the drivers, Turn 1 guarantees electrifying moments filled with joy and adrenaline.
Likewise, the stand offers a more than decent view on bends 2 and 3, and a giant screen to follow the rest of the race. Three separate grandstands make up the University grandstand of the Bahrain Grand Prix.
With a privileged view on turns 2 and 3, hear the engines roar as the cars speed round the curves and head onto a straight segment in full throttle.
Overlooking a good part of the circuit including the desert loops and the back straight, tickets to this grandstand are bargains. The right-hand hairpin, Turn 8, offers great overtaking opportunities as cars are forced to brake heavily.
Felipe Massa tried to make up places after his pit lane-start, but was caught in midfield battles. He went into the pit lane simultaneously with Felipe Nasr in front and Pastor Maldonado behind him.
A swift stop by the Lotus pit crew meant that Maldonado was able to get out ahead and gain two positions.
Sauber driver Marcus Ericsson was running eighth when he came into the pit lane on lap A second pit stop due to problems with the front left tyre meant that he fell out of reach for a points finish.
His Toro Rosso teammate Max Verstappen joined him on the sidelines on lap 34 due to an electrical failure. On lap 34, both Hamilton and Vettel came in for their second and final planned stop, both equipping the medium tyre set.
The undercut worked once more for the Ferrari, as Rosberg emerged behind Vettel one lap later. However, Vettel ran wide on the exit of the final corner on lap 36, letting Rosberg past and damaging his front wing, meaning he had to come into the pit lane for an unscheduled stop on the next lap, leaving him down in fifth position.
His teammate Räikkönen made a second pit stop on lap 40, taking the softer and faster tyres, trying to catch the two Mercedes towards the end of the race.
Fourteen laps before the finish, Räikkönen was fifteen seconds down on second-placed Rosberg, but closing by more than a second per lap. With the Mercedes in front having to make their way through backmarkers, Räikkönen was able to cut down the gap even faster, reaching Rosberg with three laps of the race to go.
Rosberg, suffering from brake overheating over the entire course of the race, outbraked himself at turn one on lap 56, which allowed Räikkönen to take second place from him.
The other Mercedes of Hamilton had brake problems as well towards the end, but was able to control the gap to the Ferrari to take his third victory of the season.
Four-time world champion Vettel however was unable to overtake the Williams of Valtteri Bottas for fourth. The race ended spectacularly when the Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo suffered an engine blow-up on the final straight, just being able to coast his car over the finish line.
During the podium interviews conducted by Jackie Stewart , Lewis Hamilton conceded it had been a tough race, saying: Sebastian Vettel said he felt that he had let the team down with his mistake that cost him a chance to challenge Rosberg for second position himself, but was happy with "a good recovery and still some decent points".
After the race, particular praise from the press was directed at Räikkönen, who returned to the podium for the first time since the Korean Grand Prix , 18 months prior.
German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung called his drive a "cool application" for a contract extension after After Daniel Ricciardo's engine gave up on the finish straight of the last lap, he was already down to his last engine of the season after only four races.
Should he needed to use another one, he would face grid penalties. This added to Renault's problems, after the two Toro Rosso drivers also failed to finish and put more strain on the relationship between Red Bull and their engine provider.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Neither me nor the team expected that kind of performance. We were expecting that we could get out of Q1 but to then qualify P8 was a big surprise.
