Going into the round, [[Brawn GP]] driver [[Jenson Button]] led the Drivers' Championship by 6 points from team-mate [[Rubens Barrichello]]. Barrichello led [[Sebastien Vettel]] of [[Red Bull Racing]] and [[Timo Glock]] of [[Toyota F1]] by 5 points in second.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/motorsport/formula_one/standings/default.stm|title=FIA Formula One drivers' world championship Standings 19 April 2009|date=2009-04-19|work=[[BBC Sport]]|accessdate=2009-04-22}}</ref>. Brawn GP led the [[2009 Chinese Grand Prix|Chinese Grand Prix]] winners Red Bull Racing by 16½ points in the [[2009 Formula One season#Constructors|Constructors' Championship]]. Toyota were a further point back and the only other team to hit double figures.
[[Scuderia Ferrari|Ferrari]] were yet to score a point, and failure to do so in Bahrain would have resulted in Ferrari's worst ever start to a season in [[Formula One]].<ref>{{cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/motorsport/formula_one/8007019.stm|title=Ferrari predict end to poor form |date=2009-04-19|work=[[BBC Sport]]|accessdate=2009-04-22}}</ref>
Their previous worst start also came when they were Constructors' Champions; in the [[1980 Formula One season|1980 season]] the team scored no points until the fourth race, the [[1980 United States Grand Prix West]], where [[Jody Scheckter]] finished fifth.
[[Force India]] introduced a revised floor and diffuser in Bahrain for the [[Force India VJM02]], as well as an upgraded front wing and reprofiled sidepods. Force India driver [[Giancarlo Fisichella]] welcomed the upgrades, hoping the car's lack of downforce would be addressed by the new modifications.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.formula1.com/news/headlines/2009/4/9226.html|title=New floor and diffuser for Force India in Bahrain |date=2009-04-22|work=Formula 1.com (Formula One Administration Ltd)|accessdate=2009-04-24}}</ref>
===Practice and qualifying===
Three practice sessions were held before the race; of which two were held on Friday April 24, 2009, with the first in the morning and the second in the afternoon. Both sessions lasted 90 minutes with weather conditions hot and dry throughout. The third session was held on Saturday morning and lasted for 60 minutes.
At the end of the first practice session, [[Lewis Hamilton]] set the fastest time of 1:33.647 in his [[McLaren]] car, ahead of the two [[BMW Sauber]] cars of [[Nick Heidfeld]] and [[Robert Kubica]]. [[Williams F1|Williams']] [[Nico Rosberg]] continued his quick practice form with the fourth fastest time, followed by the Brawn of Jenson Button, the McLaren of [[Heikki Kovalainen]], Brawn’s Rubens Barrichello, and Ferrari's [[Felipe Massa]]. Red Bull’s [[Mark Webber]] and the other Ferrari of [[Kimi Raikkonen]] shared the ninth fastest time, completing the top ten.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/results/7920910.stm|title=Bahrain GP practice results |date=2009-04-24|work=[[BBC Sport]]|accessdate=2009-04-24}}</ref> Nico Rosberg was fastest in Friday's second practice session, topping the timesheets with a time of 1:33.339, followed by [[Fernando Alonso]] in the [[Renault F1|Renault]] and Jarno Trulli in the Toyota. The Red Bulls of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber were fourth and fifth, with Button close behind. [[Adrian Sutil]] of Force India put in an impressive laptime to finish seventh in the standings, with Toyota's [[Timo Glock]], Brawn's Rubens Barrichello, and Williams' [[Kazuki Nakajima]] rounding out the top 10. The BMWs of Heidfeld and Kubica could not repeat their times from the first session, and were classified in seventeenth and twentieth, respectively.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/results/7920910.stm|title=Bahrain GP practice results |date=2009-04-24|work=[[BBC Sport]]|accessdate=2009-04-24}}</ref>
In third practice, Glock managed the fastest time with a 1:32.605 before his car rolled to a halt due to brake problems, and there were improved times from Ferrari and McLaren. Felipe Massa managed the second fastest time, with Raikkonen in fifth. Rosberg was third fastest, and Hamilton posted the fourth fastest time. [[Nelson Piquet, Jr.|Nelson Piquet]], Kubica, Nakajima, Trulli and Heidfeld made up the top ten.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/results/7920910.stm|title=Bahrain GP practice results |date=2009-04-25|work=[[BBC Sport]]|accessdate=2009-04-25}}</ref>
The qualifying session on Saturday afternoon was split into three parts. [[Jarno Trulli]] achieved his fourth career pole position, and his first since 2005, whilst his team-mate Timo Glock qualified second. This marked the first time Toyota had put both cars on the front row of the grid. Sebastian Vettel qualified third, with Jenson Button behind him. In fifth was the McLaren of Lewis Hamilton, with Rubens Barrichello in sixth. Renault's Fernando Alonso managed seventh place, and behind him Felipe Massa, Nico Rosberg and Kimi Raikkonen completed the top ten. Kovalainen, Nakajima, Kubica, Heidfeld and Piquet made up 11th to 15th on the grid. Those knocked out in the first session and classified 16th to 20th were Sutil, Buemi, Fisichella, Webber and Bourdais.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/results/7921031.stm|title=Bahrain GP qualifying results |date=2009-04-25|work=[[BBC Sport]]|accessdate=2009-04-27}}</ref> Webber was controversially blocked by Sutil near the end of his qualifying lap (Sutil claimed he didn't realise Webber was on a flying lap), preventing him from posting a fast time. As a result, the stewards gave Sutil a three-place grid penalty, demoting him to 19th position.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/8018039.stm|title=Trulli on pole as Toyota dominate |date=2009-04-25|work=[[BBC Sport]]|accessdate=2009-04-27}}</ref>
Timo Glock got off to a perfect start from second on the grid and took the lead. Jarno Trulli was running second, but had to fight off Lewis Hamilton in the first corner, who had passed Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel from fifth on the grid after a flying start. Button had also overtaken Vettel, who was running a heavier fuel load. Kimi Raikkonen, meanwhile, had pushed his Ferrari up to sixth place, making up four positions from the start. Further back in the field, there was damage sustained to the cars of Felipe Massa, Nick Heidfeld, Robert Kubica and Kazuki Nakajima, all of whom had to pit early to replace their front wings, whilst Heikki Kovalainen lost track position after running wide. Massa also complained of problems with his KERS system, and was advised to turn it off.
At the start of lap 2, Button passed Hamilton to claim third position. The McLaren of Hamilton then kept Vettel's faster Red Bull at bay, and only when Hamilton entered the pits on lap 15 did Vettel finally pass him.
Since both the Toyotas were running light on fuel, they made their [[pit stops]] early, with Glock in on lap 12 and Trulli on lap 14. The Toyota team opted to put both their drivers onto the slower, harder compound tyres for the middle stint of the race, opposite to the strategy being run by the other teams. By the time Button had made his stop on lap 15 on the softer tyres, he had made up enough ground over Trulli in just one lap to come out in front. Glock, who had once led the race, had lost so much time on the tyres that he stayed behind Hamilton in seventh place even after the McLaren driver had completed his pit stop.
Vettel's pit stop on lap 18 placed him ahead of Hamilton, but just thirty metres behind the slower-lapping car of Trulli, preventing him from challenging Button for the lead. Button took this opportunity to pull out a 7.5 second gap between himself and Trulli by lap 22.
By lap 34, Button had increased his lead to 15.6 seconds, putting him in clear control of the race. By the time the second round of pit stops were completed for the front runners, Button was ahead of anyone else, this time on the harder tyres. Toyota's tyre strategy had not paid off, and Vettel, on the softer tyres, put in some fast lap times once Trulli had his second stop and was no longer in Vettel's path. After his own stop, Vettel (now on the harder compound tyre) ended up just in front of the Toyota driver, the very opposite of the situation after the first pit stops.
On lap 44 there was drama with Raikkonen and Glock fighting for sixth position, with the Finn just edging out Glock at turn four. Rubens Barrichello had lost a lot of time earlier in the race after failing to pass the KERS-equipped Renault of Nelson Piquet. However, he showed the pace of the Brawn car by ending up just in front of Raikkonen, even after having one pit stop more, then pulled away from him in the final laps.
On lap 48, falling oil pressure on the Williams of Nakajima caused the only retirement of the race as he crawled into the pits.
Button drove home to his third victory of the season, 7 seconds clear of Vettel, who was pushing particularly hard in the last laps. Trulli crossed the line 2 seconds behind Vettel, with Hamilton finishing fourth. Barrichello took fifth, Raikkonen sixth, Glock less than a second behind in seventh, and Fernando Alonso finished eighth, 52 seconds behind Button.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/8019347.stm|title=Brilliant Button wins in Bahrain |date=2009-04-26|work=[[BBC Sport]]|accessdate=2009-04-27}}</ref>
