2019 Bahrain Grand Prix

Taking his first pole position in just his second grand prix for The Scuderia, Charles Leclerc looked every inch the Formula 1 superstar so many expect him to be.

After a poor start the Monagasque driver regained the lead and headed for a dominant maiden F1 victory. It wasn't to be. With 11 laps to go his Ferrari engine dropped a cylinder, lost power and became an easy pass for both the eventual winner Lewis Hamilton and second place finisher Valtteri Bottas, Leclerc claiming the final podium position and the fastest lap point.
