Who will win the Bahrain Formula 1 Grand Prix?
We’ll take the safe option and pick Hamilton to take the chequered flag for the third straight year in Bahrain. Don’t be fooled by reports of Mercedes battling in pre-season testing with a lack of pace. It could be real or they may be foxing. Either way, we won’t be writing off their chances.
Hamilton is chasing an eighth world championship overall. If he succeeds, he will surpass the record of seven he shares with motor racing legend Michael Schumacher. There will also be plenty of interest in Schumacher’s son Mick, who makes his F1 debut with the Haas team.
