Onwards to Bahrain: There’s no time to relax, with the 2017 Formula One season now in full swing. Just one week after the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai, Bahrain is set to host the third race of the new season. Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport have good reason to think kindly of the Bahrain International Circuit: the past three visits have resulted in two victories for Lewis Hamilton and one for Nico Rosberg. What’s more, pole position was claimed by a Silver Arrows driver in each of the last four years (two apiece for Nico and Lewis).
