Mick Schumacher to test Ferrari F1 vehicle in Bahrain

The media is now trying to figure out what exactly changed for the Finn, and the Bahrain GP drivers press conference gave the media the chance to put that question to him.

Team boss Christian Horner backed his driver and said that Red Bull have been struggling with getting the tires into their operating window. "Charles did a very good job today and he deserves to be on pole", he said.

"No-one was expecting to see a gap like that with Ferrari".

Vettel, limited to just one shot at pole after making a mistake in the second phase of qualifying, will be alarmed.

Leclerc's performance was one of maturity that belies his age. Arguably that accounts for some of the gap to Leclerc, but not all of it.

And come next week, we'll see them together again.

Mercedes ripped up the testing form book to dominate in Melbourne a fortnight ago but the silver cars were handed a thrashing under the lamps that light up this Sakhir circuit.

Charles Leclerc will start on pole position alongside team-mate Sebastian Vettel, with world champion Hamilton third.

The first real straight fight between Mercedes and Ferrari of the season.

Bottas has finished on the podium in Bahrain over the last two seasons, and he hopes to continue that run on Sunday. Romain Grosjean was in eighth for Haas but received a three-place grid penalty for blocking Norris in Q1.

Ricciardo's German team mate Nico Hulkenberg, having been impressive all weekend, was a surprise early casualty and will line up 17th.

Pressure building on Gasly: If there's one team where you don't want to underperform at, it's Red Bull. Finishing behind rookie Alexander Albon in the Toro Rosso, albeit by just 0.013s, simply isn't good enough.

Next week, a Schumacher will be behind the wheel of a Ferrari Formula One race vehicle once again.

If that was the case, then he managed to make up for nearly all of his car's deficiencies to close the gap to Russell he has faced in nearly every session this year.

Lance Stroll of Montreal was 18th.

When asked ahead of this weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix if he was startled to see the incident in that match, which has led to an investigation by European football's governing body UEFA, Hamilton said: "It's insane to think that at this time in the world it's still very, very prominent".

Did that mean if they were running in consecutive positions, they were not allowed to battle during the race?
