Headlines after Melbourne lamented the lack of overtaking in F1. But the Albert Park track has never been suited to passing. The Bahrain International Circuit is the opposite, though. With long straights and heavy braking zones, we've seen some action-packed races in the past.
This year's Bahrain GP was proof you should never jump to conclusions in F1. Like the pecking order, the quality of the on-track action will differ from race to race. Under the lights in Sakhir, we witnessed a brilliant show, with an exciting array of battles, overtakes and incidents.
We're not biased or anything... but one of our stand-out moments was Lewis' three-car overtake on the fifth lap. Battling his way up the order, Lewis drew alongside Fernando Alonso's McLaren with the help of DRS and opportunistically darted to the right as he caught Nico Hülkenberg and Esteban Ocon. He dived up the inside of them both, making it a three-car pass!
If only the race had lasted a few laps longer, an overtake for the lead may just have happened too...
