2021 Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix highlights

The Bahrain Grand Prix turned into a tense strategic tyre battle between Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who started from pole, and Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, who subsequently won the race after defending his advantage with more used tyres. Hamilton got in front after pitting earlier, but Verstappen was able to benefit from tyres that were 11 laps younger during the final stint. Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas finished third after making a late final stop for the P Zero Yellow medium tyre, to claim the extra championship point for the fastest race lap. There were a number of different strategies seen throughout the action-packed race, which was shortened by one lap after an extra formation lap.
