GPFans' F1 BAHRAIN GP PREDICTION
There is no form guide heading into the new season with testing only forming part of the picture.
Max Verstappen looked comfortably within his limits when setting the fastest lap time at the same venue last week, with Ferrari also looking confident with the ability of the F1-75, so expect the win to fall into either the Scuderia or Red Bull's hands.
Plenty of teams have teething issues to solve should they want to reach the end of the first grand prix of the year but one thing is for sure, we could not be more excited!
