Max Verstappen leads an all Red Bull front row for the 2023 Bahrain GP, and after a thrilling qualifying session, what effect will the weather conditions have on the F1 race in Sakhir?
Both Ferrari cars and Fernando Alonso in the Aston Martin will be looking to usurp the Red Bull pair of Verstappen and Sergio Perez to take the first win of the 2023 F1 season.
Red Bull are favourites, but a mix of the right strategy and tyre degradation caused by the temperatures and humidity in Bahrain could have a bearing on the race.
