This weekend, we are off to Bahrain for the first leg of two in the kingdom. It will be interesting as this event will be held on the traditional Formula 1 circuit so all teams will have some data on how to set their cars up. The other bonus is that, while the event is in November, the conditions should also be similar to the equivalent regular schedule climate.

Well, Romain Grosjean is a lucky man. The safety capsule appeared to go through the armco but walked away from the accident. Amazing!
Lance Stroll was turned on his head on the next restart in what became a miserable day for Racing Point.
