What was already a disastrous first Formula 1 race weekend for rookie Nikita Mazepin at the Bahrain International Circuit became in the first round of the even worse 2021 season opening Grand Prix of Bahrain

Mazepin, who competed for the 15-round lap in 20th Qualified (last) place, 3363-mile (5The 412-kilometer road circuit in Sakhir, Bahrain, began on Aug.after Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel was penalized for a problem that occurred in the first qualifying round at Mazepin Also, Red Bull’s Sergio Perez had to start from the pits because of a problem in the formation lap
