The heartbreak heard around the world, with Charles Leclerc just 10 laps from victory in Bahrain, when a cylinder failing on the ICE caused him to limp home and gift wrap a win to Lewis Hamilton. RJ and King break it all down in what was a wild weekend in Sakhir:


– The ballad of Charles Leclerc: From pole position and a victory in the bag, to a misfired cylinder with 10 to go and a third-place finish
– Mercedes pick up a 1-2 from Ferrari’s misfortune, HAM wins, BOT retains 1-point lead
– VET spins out during battle with HAM, suffers collapsed front wing, finishes 5th
– Renault suffers double DNF with 4 to go – HUL retires from 6th, RIC from 10th
– VER just misses out on a podium – and lucky to escape punishment for driving into SAI
– NOR finishes “best of the rest” in 6th for McLaren
– RAI 7th, GAS 8th – but questions rising about his standing against VER
