F1 Bahrain GP 2024 – Race Results

Max Verstappen of Red Bull won the 2024 Bahrain GP as the Formula 1 season started with a bang - find out the full results for the opening race


The 2024 Formula 1 season finished in the same way the last ended with Max Verstappen taking a dominant victory in the Bahrain Grand Prix, comfortably finishing over 22 seconds ahead of Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez, to get his quest for a fourth world title off to the best possible start.

Any optimism at the start of the race was quickly extinguished when Verstappen pulled out over a second on Charles Leclerc on the first lap, and from there he raced into the distance and the Ferrari dropped down the field, eventually finishing fourth. 

Carlos Sainz, in his final year with Ferrari, looked racy and overtook his teammate to move into third, but was eventually passed by Perez as the superior Red Bull made a mockery of the field. Mercedes drivers George Russell and Lewis Hamilton both had issues with their power unit during the race, and they eventually finished fifth and seventh, respectively. 

McLaren pair of Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri finished sixth and eighth, each behind a Mercedes, with the top 10 rounded out by the two Aston Martin cars of Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll
