Bahrain Grand Prix live stream: preview
The 2023 F1 season has finally arrived, and with it has come the inevitable speculations and pie-in-the-sky theories that we F1 fans are so prone to. Can Aston Martin take a podium? Is Mercedes still struggling with last season’s woes? Will Max Verstappen take home his first-ever season-opening win?
Well, if this week’s testing sessions are anything to go by, all three could be true.
As expected, Red Bull were dominant and the 2023 machine looked balanced and compliant in the hands of both Verstappen and Perez. Hamilton and Russell’s Mercedes looked completely outclassed, and while it’s rumored an easy fix has been found, we won’t soon forget last season.
The real talking point, however, was Alonso’s impressive performance in the Aston. Having posted good times and going it alone after Lance Stroll was forced to miss testing due to injury, don’t be surprised if we see serious setbacks from the British Racing Green clad team this season.
But if we go to Sakhir for the GP proper, will Verstappen be able to achieve success on his bogey circuit? After eight attempts, the reigning champion is yet to stand on the podium, and a win here is sure to bolster his ever-growing confidence.
Further up the grid, look out for promising rookies Oscar Piastri, Nyck de Vries and Logan Sargeant, with McLaren, AlphaTauri and Williams respectively. Piastri in particular has made waves – not just with his on-track performance – so Bahrain will be the tough test to see if he can live up to expectations.
In short, the Bahrain GP looks set to be an exciting opener, and anyone with even the slightest interest in motorsport just needs to tune in. To find out where to get an F1 live stream anywhere in the world, just keep scrolling.
