Race Analysis – To the Point

Racing Point’s Sergio Perez won the Sakhir Grand Prix while a deflating tire robbed George Russell the shot at victory. Russell passed Bottas to take the lead on the first tour of the 87 lap race. It’s frustrating to retire so soon in a race where we had a racy car and a good chance of doing well.”. Perez had to pit for tires, so he was last at the end of lap 1. “We didn’t give up and we pitted to go onto the medium tire. I then had a lock-up under the safety car and flat-spotted one of my tires. Which is why George exited with the wrong tires (meant for Bottas) and Valtteri left the pits on the same tires he’d arrived with. Then we had to pit George again to correct the mistake.”.
