F1: Leclerc leads Ferrari 1-2 as both Red Bulls retire in Bahrain

The opening race of the 2022 Formula 1 season provided a lot of surprises, with Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz completing a 1-2 finish at the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday. Lewis Hamilton salvaged a podium finish thanks to a double retirement from both Red Bulls.

Reigning world champion Max Verstappen started in second place behind Leclerc and kept the position throughout most of the race. The second Ferrari of Sainz and second Red Bull of Perez kept the status quo in third and fourth for most of the race as well, with the main action up front coming after the first pit stops.
