Normal service resumes then?

Two-time defending world champion Max Verstappen got his defence of his world title to an excellent start with a routine win in the Bahrain GP. The Dutchman, a driver who we have touted for greatness for some time, is finally justifying the hype surrounding him.

Here at, we have been very vocal in our praise for him, but also felt Verstappen needs to work on his temperament. With that issue now appearing to be rectified, the rest of the F1 grid will no doubt be put on notice.

In Sunday’s race, which was the first race of the season, Max Verstappen finished on pole with Sergio Perez, Verstappen’s Mexican teammate second and Fernando Alonso in his Aston Martin third.

Last year’s title rival Charles Le Clerc, didn’t finish the race, in what was tough weekend for Ferrari.

This up-and-coming F1 season will be strange, because there will be no Sebastian Vettel, who retired last season. Canadian Lance Stroll replaces Vettel as the second driver for Aston Martin.

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton will be a part of the chasing pack in his Ferrari, but if last season is anything to go by, he will do to outscore teammate George Russel, who has impressed in the sport for some time.

It’s going to be hard to look past world champion Max Verstappen, the early signs are that his Red Bull car is the car to compete against. Here’s to hoping that there will be a firm, but fair rivalry between Sergio Perez and Verstappen.

In a racing weekend that has seen Bahrain come under scrutiny for matters off the track, it’s refreshing that the matters on the track are being talked before anything else.

Next up for Max and the chasing pack of the two-time world champion is the Saudi Arabian GP, which will be held between 17-19th March.
