Lewis Hamilton makes a statement in Bahrain and gets jewellery exemption

The British driver had made clear on Thursday his belief that F1 was responsible to make a positive impact and raise awareness of issues in the countries it visits. The helmet did not breach the FIA’s rules on drivers making political statements but Hamilton’s fracas with the governing body over the wearing of jewellery rumbled into a new season. On the track at the first meeting of the new season, it was Aston Martin that caught the eye, confirming that their exceptional step forward over the winter, indicated at testing, had been no false dawn. For all that the Sakhir circuit is something of an outlier in performance terms, this was confirmation that Aston Martin can expect to be a player at the front of the field this season.
