The 2022 Formula 1 World Championship started this Sunday in Bahrain with a double for Ferrari: first place for Charles Leclerc and second for the Spanish Carlos Sainz, while the podium was completed by Lewis Hamilton, from Mercedes. The Briton climbed to third place at the last moment, when Sergio Pérez (Red Bull) lost control of his car and was left stranded in the middle of the track.
The current world champion, Max Verstappen (Red Bull), who lost power in his car after being overtaken by Carlos Sainz in the fight for second place in the event, fell out of the fight for victory. Fernando Alonso has been ninth.

Today a new Formula 1 begins; but to always follow the two men who made us enjoy last year. One, Max Verstappen, wants to be the third champion of the last 14 to win his next title race today. The other, Lewis Hamilton continues to have the challenge of being the first in history to win eight wounds.
The reconnaissance lap has begun.
All prepared at the Sakhir circuit, in the Bahrain desert, in the Middle East, a land that Lewis Hamilton has dominated the most with 15 victories. The co-equipiers are already on both sides of the gutter to run to their posts. 57 laps ahead of us. Eduardo Freitas and Niels Wittich replace Michael Massi as race directors. The Formula 1 season begins.
LAP OF FORMATION IN MARCH. All with soft except for the two McLarens that will try to innovate with mediums. Nicholas Latifi has had a hard time getting started, but the supporting lead from last season’s finale has finally started the march on him.
The pilots are already at their posts.

Disappointment in Fernando Alonso who had dropped to tenth place, but fortunately he was able to take over at turn 3 with the position of Mick Schumacher. Nothing to do with his teammate Kevin Magnussen who, shot, is fifth.
| Round 2 | Problems for Mick Schumacher who has dropped to 13th place, good for Esteban Ocon who is already behind his teammate Fernando Alonso. On the other side of the coin, Daniel Ricciardo is last and Lando Norris 17th. Via Crucis for the McLaren with the medium that revives bad times not so distant.
