It was the race that showed the world what George Russell could do and what Formula 1 would be losing if Sergio Perez doesn’t get a 2021 seat.

Edd Straw, Scott Mitchell and Mark Hughes have an enormous amount to cover in the Sakhir Grand Prix episode of The Race F1 Podcast.

Every aspect of Perez’s recovery from last place to a shock first win and Russell’s stunning weekend at Mercedes is debated in depth, including the earliest hints of the skillsets that were key to how both drivers impressed in Bahrain.

As ever, the entire field’s performance is dissected and assessed by our panel, with Esteban Ocon, Carlos Sainz Jr, Daniil Kvyat and the two rookie debutants getting plenty of praise.

But it’s less happy listening for Charles Leclerc, Alex Albon and Valtteri Bottas.
