F1 2024 Bahrain GP – Practice 1 Results

The 2024 Formula 1 season got underway with FP1 at the Bahrain Grand Prix


RB were the surprise leaders after Free Practice 1 at the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix, with Daniel Ricciardo posting the fastest time of the session, just 0.032 seconds ahead of Lando Norris in the McLaren

The second McLaren of Ocasr Piastri was third, just over two tenths off the pace set by his fellow Australian, then Yuki Tsunoda in the second RB was fourth. Though it should be noted all four of the front runners did their fastest time on the soft tyres. 

Max Verstappen ended the session in sixth place and was complaining of gear shifts in his Red Bull throughout. Charles Leclerc was the fastest Ferrari in eighth, with George Russell in the Mercedes sandwiched between the pair. 

Gusty conditions caused a few snaps over the course of the hour, though the session isn’t representative of conditions for the race or qualifying.
