Meg is joined by Spanners to recap the 2023 season opener at the Bahrain Grand Prix. They kick things off by highlighting Fernando Alonso’s strategic third-place win that landed him on the podium with Aston Martin (1:26); discussing Ferrari’s disappointing performance, with Leclerc not finishing and Sainz on the defense (12:32); and reviewing Verstappen’s first win at the Bahrain GP, where he maintained a solid lead (17:01). Then, they touch on the midfield competition and where they land among one another, plus the performances from the rookie class (28:40).
