The 2021 season in Formula 1 has started. Bahrain had a lot to offer – Mick Schumacher directly beat his teammate Nikita Mazepin.
Update from March 28, 7:34 p.m .: The first race is over – and it was extremely spectacular! In the end – as usual – Lewis Hamilton won. From a German point of view, it was a used day. Sebastian Vettel was penultimate, Mick Schumacher last. After all, both made it to the finish – in contrast to four other drivers.
Vettel crashed and Schumacher also had problems. The tires were a real challenge. After the race, he explained his little mishap in the early stages of the race: “With cold wheels too early on the gas – then there was a spin.” In contrast to team mate Nikita Mazepin, he brought the stubborn Haas to the finish – first victory for Schumi junior!
Formula 1 in Bahrain: Here the first race is on TV and in the stream
First report from March 25th: Munich – The start of a Formula 1 season is always particularly exciting. Because the true balance of power is only revealed in qualifying and in the race. Because the Australian Grand Prix was postponed to November this year as a result of the corona pandemic, the start will take place in Bahrain this time. The race can be seen live on TV and also in the live stream – albeit not for free.
On the last weekend in March, the run will take place in Sakhir, it will be the 18th edition. Last season there were even two races within a week on the Bahrain International Circuit – with different routes. The second was officially the Sakhir Grand Prix. Both races will be remembered forever by the fans.
Formula 1 in Bahrain: memories of Grosjeans fire accident and Perez’s maiden victory
In the first, Romain Grosjean touched Daniil Kvjat’s Alpha Tauri with his Haas car after take-off and flew off. When it hit the edge of the track, the racing car went up in flames and broke in two, but the Frenchman only got burns.
A week later, Sergio Perez, completely surprisingly, took the victory at Racing Point after he had even fallen back to the bottom of the field in the meantime. It was the first F1 racing success for the Mexican in his tenth year.
Formula 1 in Bahrain: Russell’s star as a Hamilton replacement rises
George Russell, who took over the Mercedes from Corona-infected Lewis Hamilton at short notice and drove it to second place on the grid, also caused a stir that weekend. In the race, the young Brit, who actually drove for Williams, seemed to be hurrying away from everyone, but a failed pit stop deprived him of the well-deserved reward for his brilliant performance. Since this performance at the latest, it seems clear that the future of the series winner will belong to him.
Record winners in Bahrain are Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel with four triumphs each. The record world champion also won the official Bahrain Grand Prix 2020 – the first of the two races in Sakhir.
