Johnny backs Lewis Hamilton to win third consecutive Bahrain Grand Prix

Johnny has backed Lewis Hamilton to pip Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg to the finish line in Sakhir and record a third consecutive Bahrain Grand Prix win this weekend.

Having successfully tipped the German to win the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, Johnny believes Hamilton, the 2015 champion, will top the podium on Sunday.

Johnny said: "This weekend I expect (Hamilton) to put that right and take what would be a third consecutive Bahrain GP win.

“He's still the man to catch, even if his poor start last time out allowed his teammate to take the spoils."

Johnny will be covering all 21 Formula One races throughout the season on Sky Sports F1 alongside fellow racing legends Damon Hill, Martin Brundle, and Paul Di Resta.
