Red Bull Dominance Grows Further
Red Bull’s fingerprints were all over this race considering who the top-two racers were, and the Bahrain GP was just the latest installment in the brand’s high vantage point over the landscape of Formula One.
Lewis Hamilton has, so far, been unable to improve upon a dismal 2022, whilst Charles Leclerc constantly finds himself looking at Verstappen’s rear tyres. As impressive as the Dutchman is, the Bahrain GP was devoid of drama from the get-go, as a Verstappen victory looked entirely elementary.
Alonso Back In Business
Excitement for the new season is certainly still high, and the return of Fernando Alonso to the podium was pleasant to see, but it’s becoming more and more clear that this is the Max Verstappen show, and the rest of the competition are mere spectators.
It had been two long years since Alonso’s last podium finish and the Spaniard is quickly reminding us all that he’s not quite past his best yet. He could present the biggest threat to Verstappen this season - meaning that the upcoming Formula One campaign really will be a battle between the old sage and the young master.
Same Old Problems For Ferrari
Charles Leclerc’s early dismissal from the race sums up everything about Ferrari’s rotten luck right now. The Monacan got off to a good start and was sitting pretty in P3 before his car experienced difficulty, ending his chances right there and then.
It seems that Ferrari can’t catch a break right now, and the same can be said for Mercedes, who endured ‘one of the worst days in racing’ as Toto Wolff stated, before adding that Red Bull had ‘set the benchmark’.
The painful reality for Mercedes is that they are being overtaken by the competition and need to find a plan B to avoid falling behind any further.
It was business as usual for Red Bull at the Bahrain Grand Prix, and it’s going to take a massive overhaul for their dominance to even be tested by the rest.
