Formula 1 came back with a bang for the first round of the 2022 season, as Charles Leclerc returned Ferrari to the winner's circle.

It wasn't an easy race win, with Leclerc having to fend off the relentless Max Verstappen, as the reigning World Champion pursued in his Red Bull.

Could this be the championship fight – Leclerc vs. Verstappen with the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton hanging gamely on?

Looking back over the 2022 Bahrain Grand Prix are RacingNews365.com F1 journalists Dieter Rencken, Mike Seymour, and Thomas Maher.

Should Red Bull be concerned about their reliability after a double DNF near the end of the race? And are McLaren doomed to a poor year after their atrocious start to the season?

Meanwhile, have Haas taken over at the head of the midfield as Kevin Magnussen revels in his new role?
