Bear necessities Brit F1 sensation Oliver Bearman, 18, beats Lewis Hamilton in first ever F1 GP as Max Verstappen wins in Saudi ArabiaBearman shared a beautiful moment with Lewis Hamilton after the race

OLIVER BEARMAN finished seventh in his first ever Formula One race in Saudi Arabia – even beating Brit legend Lewis Hamilton. Chelmsford-born Bearman qualified in 11th for the Jeddah race but managed to move his way up through the field with some impressive overtakes and some strategies from rivals going in his favour. It may also come as a surprise that Bearman only passed his road driving test in May. However, the teen did finish directly behind P6 finisher George Russell, who went over with Hamilton to congratulate Bearman after the race. Bearman also had a cheeky mid-race comment when trying to overtake Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg for P9, telling his engineer the Haas was “so slow” before completing a move.
