The Bahrain weekend kicks off in style, with two Free Practice sessions that looked as though they were going to be dull, until Lewis Hamilton punted his McLaren into the wall. Hear all about it in this F1 Digest.

Free Practice 1

A relatively straightforward session with some struggling with their tyres, some punching above their weight, and some barely making it out of their garages. Plus, a voicemail!

Free Practice 2

What could have been a mundane session was livened up by Hamilton, but there were plenty of other things to note as well. Plus, a voicemail!


McLaren are upbeat, despite the work ahead of them. Bourdais has played down his performance, while Alonso admits he is struggling.
