Motor Racing - Formula One World Championship - Bahrain Grand Prix - Race Day - Sakhir, Bahrain

QNET sponsored Marussia not only achieved its primary objective of a two-car finish in Bahrain over the weekend, but at the same time won back 10th place in the Constructors’ Championship standings.

Max took the chequered flag in 13th place, up from 15th in Malaysia the weekend before.

There were contrasting fortunes between Max and his team-mate Jules however. The luck that the Frenchman so badly needed evaded him once again and he could achieve no more than 16th place after nursing a damaged car following a 13th lap coming-together with Adrian Sutil.

A fantastic build-up gave way to a spectacular 57-lap show that was full of action and close racing, in which Max was able to enjoy a good fight with the Caterhams and one in which he ultimately triumphed (see picture of Max’s car with the Caterham’s green car trailing behind).
