The Bahrain Grand Prix was another great motor race, despite the best efforts of the movers and shakers of Formula 1 to mess it all up. Nico Rosberg was fortunate that Lewis Hamilton was knocked into at the first corner by an overly ambitious Valtteri Bottas, while Sebastian Vettel disappeared in a cloud of smoke before the race even began. That left Nico having to feed off Kimi Raikkonen, which was not too hard, while Lewis worked his way back up the order. The midfield provided some spectacular racing, with nine different strategies in the top 10. Dan Ricciardo ended up forth ahead of Romain Grosjean, turning in another polished performance for Haas, while Max Verstappen was sixth. Further back Stoffel Vandoorne scored a point on his Formula 1 debut, the first of many. It was day when there were a number of impressive drives further down the order, suggesting that despite the best efforts of some in the industry, F1 is doing fine…
