After the next round, Bottas returns to third place, who managed a overtaking maneuver and thus got ahead of Leclerc. Verstappen slightly increased his lead over Hamilton.
Peréz has the fastest lap behind him, who already has one pit stop on his account. In last place is Gasly, who had problems with the vehicle, but continues.
We are already in the seventh round and we can see what the individual distances are at the head. Verstappen is 1,770 ahead of Hamilton.
After the fifth laps, there are the first changes compared to the starting grid. Leclerc took third place in front of Bottas, and since Gasly had problems with the vehicle, Norris came to his place, overtaking Ricciard.
Ranking after round 5:
1. Verstappen (Red Bull), 2. Hamilton (Mercedes), 3. Leclerc (Ferrari), 4. Bottas (Mercedes), 5. Norris (McLaren), 6. Ricciardo (McLaren), 7. Alonso (Alpine), 8. Stroll (Aston Martin), 9. Sainz (Ferrari), 10. Giovinazzi (Alfa Romeo).
The safety car has already left the track, so we can consider the Bahrain Grand Prix successfully restarted. So we have the initial complications behind us and we believe that it will be an interesting start to the new F1 season.
However, the virtual safety car is still activated! Pierre Gasly lost a piece of his vehicle and one of the turns was not managed by Mick Schumacher and ended up off the track. However, he had already returned to her.
We are in the third lap and after that the safety car will be withdrawn from the track. Meanwhile, Pérez went into the pits for new tires.
Mazepin is therefore already withdrawn from the track and the rest of the VC can watch from the pits. This is not an ideal start for a new F1 player, he must hope that it will turn out better next time.
This put the safety car on the track. Special equipment must come after Mazepin’s vehicle. They had to lift it with a small crane, which is a clear signal that the vehicle is completely immobile.
A yellow flag is displayed! Russian pilot Nikita Mazepin parked his vehicle off the track and today’s race ends very prematurely for him!
The pilots set off for their opening round. Nothing serious happened after the start, the position is preserved as on the starting grid.
The Bahrain Grand Prix has just started and therefore the new F1 season!
The race has just started.
The pilots are back at launch. So there should be nothing to stop Bahrain from starting.
We are still waiting for the beginning, the pilots set off for one more warm-up lap. Sergio Pérez parked his vehicle next to the track and this caused minor problems. Therefore, the warm-up round is repeated and Sergio Pérez will start from the pits.
The warm-up round was completed successfully. The pilots are back on the track and soon the Bahrain Grand Prix can start.
The pilots get on the track, before the start they still complete the warm-up lap.
I wish all F1 fans a pleasant Sunday evening! Today the Grand Prix of Bahrain will start a new year of F1 for us and we are definitely looking forward to it. The winner of yesterday’s qualification was Max Verstappen from the Red Bull team and will thus have the most advantageous position. However, we believe that the first VC will be very interesting and that we may see a possible surprise. In the meantime, check the position on the starting grid, we will log in again shortly before the start.
I welcome all motorsport fans to watch this online text broadcast. In it, we will focus on F1 together, specifically at the Bahrain Grand Prix, which starts on the program at 5:00 p.m.
The new F1 season is here! It will be started by the Grand Prix of Bahrain and we definitely have something to look forward to. There are 23 races waiting for us in the new season. In Bahrain, the track is 5,412 meters long and will run 57 laps.
