Mobil 1, Red Bull dominate opener

KUWAIT: Mobil along with Red Bull Racing is one of the most successful teams in recent Formula One history, winning 62 Formula One Grand Prix races, four Drivers’ and four Constructors’ World Championships during the last 17 years. The vast knowledge and expertise needed to succeed in Grand Prix Racing fits perfectly with the Mobil 1™ team’s approach: It’s about clear thinking, extensive research, and a combined effort of technology and creativity.

Max Verstappen made a dream start to the 2023 campaign as he romped to victory during the Bahrain Grand Prix, leading home team mate Sergio Perez in an emphatic Red Bull one-two finish. The Dutchman didn’t disappoint as he kicked off his title defense perfectly. From the off he proved too tough to challenge for the field and eventually came home to finish nearly 12 seconds ahead of his teammate, Perez who took P2.

Starting from P5 on the grid, Alonso struggled in the early exchanges after being hit by teammate Lance Stroll on the opening lap but he quickly shrugged off any adversity to fight Lewis Hamilton and Carlos Sainz on track for the final step on the podium. The veteran driver first pulled a great move at turn ten to slip down the inside of Hamilton before he then out dragged Sainz down the back straight to claim the 99th podium of his illustrious career.
