Jesus Balseiro / Sakhir

The preseason began with chills: the Aston Martin stopped after 20 minutes due to an apparent breakdown. At the wheel the tester, Drugovich. The team talked about an electrical failure that shouldn’t be very important, because the Brazilian returned to the asphalt and exceeded 40 laps. Susto and continue, in the afternoon it will be the turn of Fernando Alonso, which has been removed the installation laps. From now on, the shoots will be much more relevant.

The fastest in the morning was Max Verstappen with two tenths of an advantage over Carlos Sainz’s Ferrari.Impact Red Bull, which maintains the philosophy of 2022 but he takes it to the extreme with some very, very deep hollow pontoons. The SF-23 is not far behind, it is also a single-seater that has no equal in this ‘pit-lane’. Just like a hitherto inconspicuous Mercedes (Russell, 5th by more than a second). The 70 laps passed by Max, Carlos and Albon (Williams, 3rd). Zhou, fourth, was also less than a second behind the Alfa Romeo.

The track is still dirty, the desert sand bathes Sakhir, and somewhat bumpy. Although the ‘porposing’ should not have disappeared completely when the cars still show a slight dance on the straights. The action continues in Bahrain until 7:30 p.m. local time (5:30 p.m. in Spain).
