The much-awaited Formula One season kicks off with a thrilling start at the Bahrain GP this weekend. As the first race of the 2024 season, it sets the stage for what promises to be a remarkable year for F1 enthusiasts worldwide, featuring a whopping 24 races spanning from March to December.

Many fans expect Red Bull and their star driver, Max Verstappen, to continue their winning streak. Verstappen dominated last year’s races, winning 19 out of 22. But with more races and tough competition ahead, this season promises to be full of surprises and fierce battles on the track.

Here in this article, we’ll explore who’s expected to shine on the track and why. Get ready for a fast-paced showdown in the desert!

3. George Russell

George Russell, known for his promising talent, faces a pivotal moment as he prepares for the Bahrain Grand Prix. Despite his skill behind the wheel, Russell struggled during qualifying sessions, starting at P8 and P7 on the grid in the previous sessions.

However, a brilliant final lap in Q3 saw him secure the third position for the race, signaling a potential improvement in performance.

Yet, doubts remain about the consistency of Russell’s Mercedes car, which has often caused him and teammate Lewis Hamilton to grapple with pace issues during races. As the lights go out on race day, all eyes will be on Russell as he navigates the challenging Bahrain circuit and seeks to translate his qualifying success into a podium finish.

2. Charles Leclerc

Charles Leclerc, a formidable force on the track, enters the Bahrain Grand Prix with high expectations. His impressive lap time during qualifying sessions placed him in a promising position, although it fell short of securing pole position.

Despite this, Leclerc’s history at the Bahrain circuit is notable, having clinched both pole position and victory two years prior. Additionally, his recent extension with the Ferrari team underscores his role as a key contender in the 2024 season.

While he faces stiff competition from rivals like Max Verstappen, Leclerc remains a strong candidate for success, particularly in his pursuit of securing the fastest lap during the race.

1. Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen, the reigning champion, is set to dominate the Bahrain Grand Prix with three consecutive championship titles. His dominant performance in the previous year, winning 19 out of 22 races, solidifies his status as the favorite for the World Drivers’ Championship. As a Red Bull Racing star, Verstappen has consistently demonstrated exceptional skill and determination.

With the Bahrain Grand Prix marking the start of the 2024 season, he aims to secure his fourth consecutive championship title. With an expanded calendar featuring 24 races and a pool of talented contenders, the road ahead promises fierce competition. Despite the challenges, Verstappen remains unfazed, ready to defend his title and showcase his prowess on the track.
