Lewis Hamilton is simply unbeatable this year. It doesn't matter how a race goes, he always ends up on the top step of the podium every time.
Max Verstappen got the most out of his car this weekend but just couldn't get close to Lewis. More of an equipment problem, than a driver problem.
Alexander Albon did finish third, but it wasn't entirely his own doing. He himself was far behind his teammate and would actually have finished fourth if Perez had not broken his car. At least he was in the right place at the right time.
Sainz was beaten by his teammate this weekend, but was very close again.
Pierre Gasly continues his good form with a strong performance in Bahrain. In qualifying and the race, he is the clear leader of AlphaTauri and again scores valuable points for the Italian team.
Daniel Ricciardo could not help Renault move forward, although Renault were seen as one of the outsiders before this weekend.
Valtteri Bottas has recorded another disappointing result in the fastest car in Formula 1. In qualifying, he fell short again. He made a poor start to the race, was unlucky with a puncture. But he wasn't able to recover.
Esteban Ocon was very close to his teammate this weekend, but when it comes to it, Ricciardo is always ahead of him.
Daniil Kvyat may only be able to keep his seat if Yuki Tsunoda doesn't get a super license, but his current performance doesn't give the impression that he wants to stay. Grosjean's crash was not his fault, but in the duel, with Stroll, he might have taken a little too much risk.
George Russell was again very strong in qualifying, finishing just outside the points on paper.
Sebastian Vettel seems to be in better shape in the current Ferrari on Saturday, but on Sunday things will not go smoothly for the German, who again struggled with his Ferrari car this weekend.
Nicholas Latifi finished in a good 14th place, but the gap to his teammate remains shocking.
Quiet race for Kimi Raikkonen who will long for the winter break.
Not a special weekend for Antonio Giovinazzi, but at least he stays close to Kimi.
Kevin Magnussen is busy with his career after Formula 1 and that is reflected on the track.
Sergio Perez showed everyone this weekend that he still deserves a place in Formula 1, but he probably won't get it in 2021. After an engine failure, he missed out on what would've been his 10th podium in Formula 1.
Lance Stroll points his finger at Daniil Kvyat but should have been more careful himself. Kvyat had much less to lose, whereas Stroll has the best car in midfield with his Racing Point. If he's a bit more careful in the opening lap, he'll just score a mountain with points that his team desperately needs.
Everyone was happy that Romain Grosjean was able to get out of his car safely after a major crash. We wish him well in his recovery.
