Gasly gets new engine in Bahrain
Pierre Gasly retired early in the opening race of the season having lost power, with Honda tracing the issue back to the MGU-H. After investigations, it was found to be an incident that also affected the turbocharger and damaged Gasly's internal combustion engine (ICE), meaning modifications have had to be made and parts replaced.

"During the race in Australia, we had an issue with the MGU-H and turbocharger on Pierre's car and this had the knock-on effect of also damaging the ICE," Honda F1 technical director Toyoharu Tanabe said. "Therefore, in Bahrain, Pierre will use a new ICE, MGU-H and turbocharger. The MGU-H and turbocharger have both been modified, in light of what we learned in the first race.

Vettel believes the gap to the Aldo Costa designed Mercedes was exaggerated during qualifying in Melbourne and suspects it is closer to 0.3s or 0.4s per lap.
In an interview ahead of his Formula 1 milestone, Sebastian Vettel said, “I am happy with Ferrari. I think last year we made a huge step forward and we want to keep on improving. For sure I’ve enjoyed being part of this development process. About this year, it’s too early to tell.”

“I remember Ferrari since I was a child and have always wanted to drive a Ferrari. With my family, I visited Fiorano one day, but of course, I could only watch what happened from behind the fence without any interaction. So now, to be part of the team is the coolest thing ever.”

However, he says it is clear to see that Mercedes has the fastest car in Formula One despite Ferrari taking the first victory of the season.
