    Verstappen sixth in first practice Bahrain, Hamilton fastest

    Max Verstappen opens the Grand Prix weekend in Bahrain with the sixth time in the first free practice.

    Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton is by far the fastest in the opening session.

    Valtteri Bottas finishes second and Sergio Pérez completes the top three.

    Because the race and qualifying will be held in the dark, it remains to be seen how valuable the first practice, which was completed in natural light, will be.
