F1: Max Verstappen wins F1 season-opener at Bahrain Grand Prix – as it happened

Which means that’s all from me; we’ll see you in a fortnight for the second race of the season, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia – but in the meantime, thanks for your company and comments; enjoy the rest of the weekend. Lap 57/57 This has been a procession: Max Verstappen and Red Bull look – are – untouchable. Lap 53/57 Alonso, by the way, has 98 career podiums so far. Lap 51/57 Hamilton hunts Sainz as we see a rare shot of Verstappen, 10.926 ahead of Perez. He’ll fancy getting on the board here; Alonso is within 0.979s of Sainz, with Hamilton a further 1,790s behind him. Alonso is back in fifth, and does Hamilton have the power to respond?. Lap 37/57 Verstappen comes in, so Perez gets a little go at leading. Lap 35/57 Perez pits, then Alonso, and Leclerc duly moves into third, then Alonso comes out behind Hamilton.
