Under The Lights In Sakhir, Bahrain

Back to back victories for Sebastian Vettel makes it the perfect start to the 2018 season for the German driver, advantage Ferrari at this very early stage. He was put under immense pressure by the charging Bottas but didn’t falter as the Mercedes closed in. Hamilton did well to salvage what was looking a tricky weekend to claim the final podium position, and performed a fantastic triple overtake on his way. It was double disappointment for the Red Bulls’ who both retired early doors as well for Raikkonen after a horrific pit-stop incident ended his race early. Thankfully the news is positive for the mechanic who was badly injured, we wish him a speedy recovery.

Pierre Gasly rightly won driver of the day with an incredible 4th place finish for Toro Rosso-Honda, he looked on it all weekend long from Friday practice, a corner well and truly turned it seems. Magnussen made amends from Melbourne with a solid 5th place whilst the 2 McLarens' were in the points once more, 7th and 8th. Top 10 – 1. Vettel, 2. Bottas, 3. Hamilton, 4. Gasly, 5. Magnussen, 6. Hulkenberg, 7. Alonso, 8. Vandoorne, 9. Ericsson, 10. Ocon

China

It was Lewis Hamilton who claimed victory in Shanghai in 2017, ahead of Vettel and Verstappen. A repeat result in 2018 on a circuit which Hamilton always goes strong on would be just the tonic to make for an enthralling start to this season.

2018 podium forecast – 1.Hamilton, 2. Bottas, 3. Vettel

Fantasy Game

Vettel’s victory from pole ensured he earned the most points this round, 307 to be precise, and a price increase to boot – now £16.39m. Is the Ferrari man a must pick after such early season promise? Magnussen duly delivered on my tip with a good haul of 147 points, proving good value for money. Gasly was the star of the show however in that department, his 230 owners will be delighted with the 157 points return for their investment of £5/4.69m, a snip. My tips – Hamilton (£16.02m), Grosjean (£8.07m), Gasly (£5.51m).

Last Time Out

Despite an emphatic pole lap it was Vettel who snatched victory from Hamilton in the first race of the season down under, the Ferrari man capitalising on a glitch by the Mercedes team under the VSC to take the lead. From there it was almost impossible to overtake as position was key around Albert Park. Raikkonen held off the charging home favourite Ricciardo to take the final podium position.

Other notable performers in Australia were Fernando Alonso who came who in an excellent 5th position for McLaren at the start of their new era with Renault, and Nico Hulkenberg who finished in a solid 7th place behind Verstappen. It was a weekend to forget for Valtteri Bottas who crashed out in Q3 and could only recover to 8th in the race, he’ll be hoping for a much better outcome this time out. Top 10 – Vettel, Hamilton, Raikkonen, Ricciardo, Alonso, Verstappen, Hulkenberg, Bottas, Vandoorne, Sainz.

Bahrain

Last season it was Vettel who won the night race in Bahrain after a costly 5 second time penalty for Hamilton ended his hopes of challenging for the win. Bottas made it a double podium finish for Mercedes but ended some 20 seconds adrift. 2018 podium forecast – 1.Hamilton, 2. Vettel, 3. Bottas

Fantasy Game

Vettel’s win makes him the top scorer from round 1, amassing a total of 293 points with exactly half the number of picks compared to his main rival Hamilton – 344 to 688! This has seen his price increase to £15.41, making it little to choose between them. Ricciardo backed up my tip for round 1 with a solid return on the £10.5 investment, scoring 183 points (aided by the fastest lap bonus). However, he was the least favoured out of the 2 Red Bull drivers – food for thought perhaps for those on strategy 1? Alonso was the best value for money, with his 5th place finish earning him 163 points for those of you who picked the McLaren driver.

The 2 Haas drivers impressed until their misfortunes in the pits, seeing their prices drop as a consequence of their double retirement. Could Magnussen and Grosjean represent good value for the coming races? My tips - Hamilton (16.23), Magnussen (7.76), Verstappen (10.67).

Will those of you on strategy 1 stick or twist after round 1? Don’t forget to make those bonus picks! Enjoy the race!
