Hamilton hoping for a decent finish

Verstappen blames horsepower surge for crash

Hamilton will now meet Mercedes strategists and engineers to discuss the radio technical issues from Bahrain, plus the information he's given over the radio while on the track. When it crossed the line, the Ferrari had barely a shred of rubber left.

Hartley trailed the field in the second practice session in Sakhir, recording the slowest time of 1 minute 32.908 seconds, more than 3s slower than Raikkonen.

"Surgery OK. I have to thank all of the people anxious".

But he will now be bumped down the order following an unscheduled gearbox change on his Mercedes.

Things could have been a lot worse for the Briton, though.

A blistering first lap brought the Dutchman right on the heels of Hamilton, but in an attempt to elbow his way past the Mercedes driver, the pair made contact.

"It was unfortunate", said Verstappen, who will start 15th. Max did not need to squeeze Lewis as much as he did.

WHO stresses on prioritising universal health coverage
The UN General Assembly on Dec 12 in 2012 adopted a resolution emphasising health as a critical element in worldwide development. The day was first marked in 1949. " Universal Health Coverage: everyone, everywhere " is the theme of the celebration this year.

"Lewis was trying to go around the outside and at one point I was ahead". "I don't think it's justified to give us this kind of shit question and making up a story out of nothing".

Why is it then that the FIA gave Ferrari a measly 5,000 euro fine for an unsafe release during free practice, as Kimi Raikkonen was forced to pull over with a loose wheel.

While Raikkonen was blameless for the accident (the light had, after all, gone green) he has been criticised by fans for barely acknowledging the chaos in his wake as he trudged back to the garage from his stricken vehicle. If [McLaren's] Fernando [Alonso] was in their auto, he would have got points for Red Bull. Ricciardo and Verstappen will have left Bahrain not only ruing their misfortunes but fearing for their seats after Gasly's performance in the sister auto.

Lewis Hamilton says Max Verstappen's move that resulted in them colliding in the Bahrain Grand Prix was "silly" and disrespectful.

Hamilton said the team would be reviewing his communications with race engineer Peter Bonnington, while stressing how busy races can be for the guys in the hot seats on the pitwall.

The opening two rounds of the 2018 F1 season have proved disappointing for Verstappen, with costly mistakes in Australia resulting in a sixth-place finish and a retirement in the third lap in Bahrain following a second-lap clash with Hamilton. Two races into the Formula One season he's already disgruntled and with good reason considering rival Sebastian Vettel has won them both. When I was within their vehicle, I'd have got points for RedBull.

"I hope he is learning through these situations".
