THE PREDICTION

Lewis Hamilton is the man they all have to beat once again as the seven-time world champion looks to become the outright most successful title holder of all time. Hamilton has won the last four Drivers’ Championships and it will take a sensational effort to prevent him from retaining his title once again. Hamilton has four wins to his name in Bahrain and this season opener could present him with a third successive victory on this track. However, the Red Bull cars look a threat based on their pace in testing and Max Verstappen could be the man to capitalise by claiming the first race of the season.
