Bahrain Grand Prix: F1 2021 Results !! Lewis Hamilton wins first race of the season

Lewis Hamilton won the Bahrain Grand Prix 2021 for Mercedes, the First race of 2021 Formula 1 World Championship Series.

Mercedes ran a different strategy with Hamilton that gained him the lead after he undercut Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in the first round of stops. But Red Bull didn’t react, running a medium-medium-hard tire strategy to Hamilton’s medium-hard-hard that looked to swing back in its favor in the second half of the race. Verstappen had to pass Hamilton on track in his final stint, the race climaxing with an on-track fight in the closing laps.

Despite getting ahead with four laps to go, Verstappen was told to hand the place back to Hamilton as he briefly leaving the track as he passed him. After that, Max was unable to get ahead again and Lewis hung on for a fine victory.
