The 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix provided valuable insights into the upcoming F1 season, which has kicked off with a record-breaking 26 races. Despite the lack of significant action during the race, it still offered a glimpse into what we can expect in the races to come.

Key Takeaways from the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix:

1. Alpine’s Struggles:-

The launch of Alpine’s new car generated excitement among fans, with its lightweight carbon fiber design. However, the performance of their drivers and the car itself in the Bahrain Grand Prix was disappointing. Both drivers qualified poorly and finished even lower in the race. It seems that Alpine lacks both qualifying and race pace, indicating a challenging season ahead. Adding to their troubles, the team’s technical director has resigned from his position.

2. Ferrari vs Ferrari:-

With Hamilton’s arrival at Ferrari in 2025 on a two-year contract and Leclerc’s signing of a multi-year contract, Ferrari has solidified its driver lineup for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, this leaves Carlos Sainz without a car for the 2025 season. Determined to secure a seat, Carlos steps up his game. Impressively, he secures a podium finish at the Bahrain Grand Prix, outperforming his teammate. Throughout the race, Carlos showcases his brilliance by overtaking his teammate twice, who was struggling with braking issues. It is evident that these two drivers will fiercely compete until the very last race. Regardless of the outcome, Formula 1 fans can rest assured that they will be treated to an exhilarating spectacle.

3. Maclaren:-

In contrast to the previous season, McLaren had a rather impressive start to this season. The car appears to be the third fastest on the grid in terms of race pace. If McLaren can replicate their remarkable on-season development from 2023, they will soon be in a position to challenge Red Bull for a podium finish.

4. Aston martin’s Helplessness:-

As fans of the sport, we all admire Fernando Alonso’s fierce determination, regardless of his podium finishes. Alonso never fails to entertain us with his daring overtakes and strategic maneuvers. However, it is disappointing to see the new Aston Martin underperforming, as it fails to equip Alonso with a competitive edge. We can only hope that the engineering team can address their performance issues and restore the lost pace they had in early 2023.

5. Russell’s redemption:-

Following an extended period with Mercedes, Hamilton is now set to leave the team and move to Ferrari. This decision opens up the position of the number 1 driver at Mercedes, which Russell has an eye on. Russell, who had a challenging season in 2023 with no podium finishes, is now presented with the chance to establish himself as the leading driver at Mercedes. Despite facing car heating issues, Russell’s performance at the Grand Prix in 2024 showed promise.

6. Another year of dominance ? :-

It was anticipated by multiple F1 experts that the RB20 would dominate the race. It is not shocking that Red Bull claimed all three podium spots at the Bahrain Grand Prix. With the 2023 car already perfected, the Red Bull engineering team had ample time to focus on the RB 20. The latest package is significantly quicker, more stable, and more precise, making it a comprehensive upgrade. Therefore, it is no wonder that the leading Red Bull car finished a staggering 50 seconds ahead of the second-place car.

7. Max’s 4th World Driver championship:

Max Verstappen, a three-time championship winner, had an exceptional 2023 season with record-breaking performances. He is undoubtedly eager for the upcoming 2024 season. It appears that Red Bull has equipped him with a formidable car capable of winning a fourth championship. Verstappen displayed immense confidence in the car’s performance, evident from his victory with a staggering 50-second lead. While it may be premature to label him as a four-time championship driver, considering the second-best car finished nearly a minute later than Verstappen, it seems highly likely that the fourth championship is within his grasp.
