Keeping Ferrari 's morale high in the Bahrain Grand Prix race which opened the 2024 Formula 1 World Championship , contrary to expectations, was Carlos Sainz , the driver who started this season already knowing that it will be his last in the team of Maranello because from next year Lewis Hamilton will take his place. Starting from the fourth spot on the grid, after a less than perfect start in which he was surprised by Perez, the Spaniard put together a great race which led him to finish on the podium behind the two Red Bulls, very close to that of the Mexican and also having the satisfaction of overtaking his teammate Charles Leclerc on two occasions, who saw his race compromised due to an unexpected problem with his car's brakes which emerged from the very first laps.

The Madrilenian showed a great pace (only that of the unattainable Verstappen was better than his), remarkable consistency and great coolness in taking advantage of the difficulties of his opponents (first Leclerc and then Russell) consolidating third position and in the final going almost catching Perez who after 57 laps crossed the finish line in Sakhir with just two and a half seconds ahead of him. A race also celebrated by Formula 1 fans from all over the world who voted him as driver of the day, but, at least in the immediate future, not by Ferrari.

In fact, what happened in parc fermé immediately after the end of the race did not go unnoticed . After parking his SF-24 in the place reserved for third place, Carlos Sainz headed to the sub-podium where the members of the Red Bull team were waiting for their two drivers who scored the double. Having removed his helmet and balaclava, the Madrilenian looks around for the Ferrari men who he expected to be there to celebrate his excellent result, however making a bitter discovery: there is no man from the Maranello team nearby . A hint of disappointment is inevitable for him. Disappointment that he is unable to hide with his lost look that betrays all the bitterness he felt in those moments . Disappointment which vanished immediately afterwards and disappeared definitively once he got on the podium where for him and for the team (the entire team under the podium celebrating his third place) there was only room for joy.
