In Focus: 2023 Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix

Mar 072023

The 2023 F1 season opened with a bang in Bahrain; and while the Silver Arrows didn’t come home with the result they wanted; a packed 23-race season offers plenty of opportunity for a heroic comeback.

Lewis Hamilton finished fifth and George Russell seventh. Lewis made up two positions on the opening lap to run in fifth for most of the race, which became fourth when Charles Leclerc retired but he lost out to Alonso in the closing stages. George dropped to sixth at the start with a slow first stop relegating him to eighth. He ran close to the Aston Martin of Lance Stroll throughout but was unable to pass for seventh.
