Hamilton wins the Bahrain Grand Prix after Ferrari Disaster!

Lewis Hamilton pounced on Ferrari issues to take his first win of the 2019 season!

It seemed that Charles Leclerc was going to take his maiden victory after dominating the first 40 laps but hybrid issues meant Leclerc limped home to 3rd position.

Hamilton and Bottas both eased pass Leclerc and a late safety car allowed him to stay ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. 15 points gained or 7 points dropped? If there was any consolation, Leclerc managed to get the fastest lap of the race and with that, an extra point.

Hamilton had a couple of great battles with the other Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel. A battle that also ended in disaster for the man in red as Vettel dropped it on the exit of turn 4 which resulted in ruined tyres and a broken front wing! Vettel managed to finish in 5th position.

Behind the top 5, was McLaren’s Lando Norris who came home a stunning 6th! The Renault’s of Nico Hulkenberg and Daniel Ricciardo were on course for 6th and 7th but in a dramatic turn of events, both of them retired on the same lap at the same corner!

Kimi Raikkonen came home a strong 7th for Alfa Romeo Racing with Pierre Gasly in a dissapointing 8th. Alexander Albon took his first points in 9th and Sergio Perez came home in 10th.
