Well that was enlightening, was it not? At the end of the third and final day of pre-season testing in Bahrain before the first Grand Prix of 2024 at the same venue next weekend, the entire F1 applecart appears to have been upset. For Max Verstappen was neither the first, second, nor third fastest but down in fourth place, over 0.4sec behind Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari.
