Williams junior Latifi opens the score in F2

Williams junior Nicholas Latifi won the opening round of the FIA Formula 2 Championship in Bahrain on Saturday.

Latifi's prospects looked like they had taken a hit early on after the DAMS driver lost the lead as the result of a very poor pitstop.

But the 23-year-old eventually battled his way back to the front to take his third career win in F2.

Prema rookie Mick Schumacher delivered a solid drive that brought the Ferrari junior home eighth, an enviable position as it will allow Mick to start from pole on tomorrow's sprint race reverse-grid!
