The Bahrain Grand Prix will go down as a classic for years to come and one of Lewis Hamilton’s finest drives. The race was outstanding in many ways with breathless battles for position right through the field as well as a great surprise package in the Force India of Sergio Perez finishing 3rd, ahead of Red Bull, Ferrari and McLaren. Its unclear if we can expect that level of racing at every circuit in this new era but Motorsport.co.uk and its users believe that Formula 1 is finally on the right track.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Hamilton looks like a driver reborn with the new Mercedes whilst Vettel looks distinctly average now he is without the dominant car. Even his teammate looks more comfortable and has been driving with more surety and skill. Vettel isn’t an instinctive racing driver and relies heavily on a car advantage which is probably why he is looking an increasingly frustrated figure in the paddock. Red Bull have pulled things around before for the German but you wonder if Renault and Red Bull can return the car advantage or if Vettel can raise his game. The fans are loving the more driver focused era and well done to Mercedes for allowing their drivers to race, so much for the fans to talk about and analyse and we cant wait for the next Grand Prix in Shanghai!”
Chris Middleton, F1 correspondent of Motorsport.co.uk believes that Hamilton showed everyone why he is the best racing driver of this generation. ”You had to feel that Nico Rosberg would have been an undeserving winner when the safety car looked certain to hand victory to the German by removing the lead that Hamilton had generated. Lewis then pulled it out of the bag the best piece of driving I have witnessed in many years. How Lewis was able to fend off a much faster car at that stage of the race is evidence indeed that what we witnessed was the supreme skills of the most naturally gifted racing driver around at the moment. The Red Bull era is certainly under threat, let’s hope it’s over as I for one want more of that and more of Lewis Hamilton!“
