Lewis Hamilton wins the Bahrain GP
In Bahrain, on the Al-Sakhir circuit, Lewis Hamilton starts 2021 with a heart-pounding success over Max Verstappen who tries the attack in the final but must give up and give way to the 7-time world champion. Valtteri Bottas closes the podium. Leclerc and Ferrari start 2021 with a 6th place behind the McLaren of Norris and Sergio Perez. 8th place for Sainz with Ferrari
Lewis Hamilton wins the Bahrain GP, the first race of the 2021 World Championship, and starts again where he left off in the triumphal 2020. But if then the superiority of Mercedes allowed him to drive in relaxation mode, today he had to bring out all his recognized talent for keep behind Max Verstappen’s Red Bull, which also appeared in the race better balanced and at times faster than the silver arrows. For once he didn’t win the best car but the best driver.
