GP Bahrain F1 2017: Results of the race


Exciting race of the GP Bahrain F1 2017, with all the cars pretty close to each other, and with other new goof of the team Mercedes, back in his strategy, as happened in the GP of Australia, and the Ferrari of Vettel has been able to take advantage of her to return to win the race and become leader of the world. If the Mercedes are aiming to win, certainly should not follow the same road by which they are now, since they have the best engine but it is of little use to them with actions as well…

Valtteri Bottas, who yesterday made a great performance and was first ahead of Hamilton, today has not been able to convert pole position into a victory, a penalty for the pilot in Finland. Nor has it been able to with your partner in the race, and finally had to settle with the third step of the podium. The thing is very matched, with Vettel, Hamilton and Bottas leading the championship, and the points that you take in the first few races are vital, because if the teams improve with the evolutions, or if the third party in the discord (Red Bull), the last races will be even more expensive, and the pressure for winning the world cup even more.

By the way, the penalty of 5 seconds that has Hamilton also has helped the English to be first. And speaking of sanctions, following the departure of the previous GP, where Vettel put his car very badly, the commissioners will be more hard with this, even though the German had no sanction. Further back, we have seen Carlos Sainz Jr. has been intruded in an accident that has come out harmed, but the most damage has been Stroll, whose car has been pretty touched. Both have been touched and have been left out today. Those who also have been left out have been Magnussen, Verstappen, Ericsson. It’s a shame!

In terms of McLaren-Honda, deserves a separate paragraph. The Woking/Sakura have returned to perform a nefarious action. Stoffel Vandoorne who has had several problems this weekend, not counting the racing previews, looked like your car was “surrendered” before the start of the GP due to technical problems. The reliability is still bad, and although Alonso has been able to go out and always be stuck in the Top10, in P11 despite the deficit of power of your engine attached to the change of the unit that was yesterday, to have broken (which left them with less power yet), it has also had to retire the car before the end of. It is a pity!

The next appointment I hope it’s more interesting and, above all, that has better luck to Carlos and Fernando. It is only in two weeks, where we will arrive at the GP of Russia. It will be the 4th race of the season, and we are also very aware of what makes Honda the test which will be this coming week in Bahrain, taking advantage of the equipment is already there with all the material. Honda had been raised to test the new specification of the engine, that it seems that will not bring more power, but improvements to the intake to reduce consumption and exterminate the troublesome vibrations of once.
