F1 2023 Bahrain Grand Prix: How And Where To Watch

The 2023 F1 season is set to kick off with the highly-anticipated Bahrain Grand Prix. Red Bull and Max Verstappen will be looking to defend their drivers’ and constructors’ championships, while Ferrari will be aiming for a strong start like last year. With the recent pre-season testing, the F1 world has been making predictions on what to expect from the season ahead, and the Bahrain Grand Prix is no exception. Aston Martin has shown significant improvement with their AMR23, which could pose a threat to Mercedes who ended third in the Constructor Standings of 2022.

The current lap record is held by Pedro de la Rosa with a time of 1:31.447 in 2005.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
