RACE HIGHLIGHTS: Watch all the action from Perez's brilliant maiden win in Sakhir

Share

Sergio Perez is still waiting to hear whether he will even be racing in Formula 1 next year, but on Sunday evening he put those concerns to one side to drive to a brilliant first F1 victory in the Sakhir Grand Prix.

The Mexican dropped to stone dead last on the first lap after tangling with Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc – who both crashed out as a result – but then began fighting his way back through the field on the short Outer Loop track in Bahrain.

RACE REPORT: Sergio Perez takes sensational maiden win in Sakhir GP as tyre issues ruin Russell's charge

Perez's win was aided by a nightmare race for Mercedes, who had George Russell leading Valtteri Bottas in the first half of the race, only for a pit stop mix-up to ruin both of their races, with Russell's made even worse by a late puncture.

That left the track clear for Perez to take Racing Point's first ever win, with his team mate Lance Stroll in third, and Renault's Esteban Ocon scoring his first career podium finish in second.
