Usually so impressive, Mercedes is in the uncommon position of having a point to prove at the Bahrain Grand Prix this weekend.World champion Lewis Hamilton must overcome the frustration of being denied victory at the season-opening Australian GP by his own team's careless computer error. Although the Finn insists he has "processed" out the negativity from his Melbourne mishap, It was hardly the way to impress his bosses.He can ill afford further slips, considering his contract expires at the end of the season. Mercedes will decide at some point this year whether to keep him. He won three races last year and will probably need to do better to prevent Mercedes choosing someone else.Sunday's race will also further show whether McLaren has finally turned the corner, following a switch to Renault engines on the back of three miserable years with Honda.
