Charles Leclerc of Ferrari won the Formula One season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday after reigning champion Max Verstappen was forced out with engine trouble with just two laps remaining.

Carlos Sainz made it a Ferrari one-two while Lewis Hamilton snatched third place for Mercedes after Sergio Perez added to Red Bull´s disastrous day by spinning out of the race on the last lap.

“That’s exactly how we should start the season. One-two baby, one-two. Mamma mia,” Leclerc said on the team radio.

Once the race trophy was in his hands, Leclerc said: “I’m so happy. We knew this was a big opportunity for the team and the guys have done an incredible job building into amazing car.

“A one-two today with Carlos – we couldn’t hope for better. It’s incredible to be back at the top.”

“A big, big congratulations to Ferrari, it’s so good to see them doing well again,” said Hamilton.

“It was such a difficult race – we’ve struggled throughout practice and this was the best result we could hope for. We’re grateful for these points.” Credible to be back at the top.”
