F1 Bahrain Grand Prix 2024: Full race schedule for season opener

Published

on

F1 racers are gearing up for the opening 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix THIS weekend – and Lewis Hamilton has one final shot at becoming champion once again behind the Mercedes wheel.

The British legend shocked the world when it was revealed that he’ll be making the switch to Ferrari in 2025.

And over two years on from winning his last race, Hamilton will be determined to get off to the perfect start in Bahrain.

However, 2023 champion Max Verstappen is certainly looking to ruin the party by continuing his incredible hot streak.

Furthermore, the Red Bull racer has a goal of his own – to become only the fourth driver to win FOUR championships in a row.
