Hamilton top in Bahrain first practice

Lewis Hamilton, in the first race since becoming the most successful driver of all time, dominated first practice at the Bahrain Grand Prix. Hamilton was 0.449 seconds ahead of team-mate Valtteri Bottas in second place, with Racing Point's Sergio Perez in third, nearly a second off the pace. It was an unrepresentative session, not least because the teams spent some of it assessing 2021-specification tyres. It was held in daylight with qualifying and the race in the dark.
