Charles Leclerc wins dramatic Bahrain F1 GP as Ferrari bring home one-two

While Charles Leclerc led a Ferrari one-two with teammate Carlos Sainz, the prancing horse once more at a mighty gallop, their Red Bull rivals were left reeling from the brutal body blow of a double failure for both their cars. Passed twice in two laps, Leclerc fought back both times to regain the lead and then hold it for a deserved victory. “The last two years have been incredibly difficult for the team,” said Leclerc. “Ferrari are properly back with a one-two, where the team should be,” he said. Leclerc had narrowly held his lead from pole through the opening corners as the race swiftly turned into a straight fight between him and Verstappen. He edged ahead though turn one but Leclerc was having none of it. The pair repeated the duel immediately afterwards on the next lap, Verstappen nicking the lead and Leclerc counterattacking to take it back.
