Monegasque Charles Leclerc has won the second round opening of the FIA Formula 2 Championship in Bahrain, the curtain raiser to the F1 race. The 19-year-old driver soon took the lead after starting in sixth place on the grid, and after a tyre change mid-race –ssomething most of his rivals chose not to do – made up the gap between 14th place and the lead in just eight laps.

A driver of the Ferrari Driver Academy, Leclerc beat Italian Luca Ghiotto into second place, and Englishman Oliver Rowland in third.

Leclerc is now at the head of the F2 championship, six points ahead of Russian Artem Markelov.
