Now, let’s talk about Oliver Bearman for a sec. This kid stepped in for the unwell Carlos Sainz at Ferrari. And boy, did he make an entrance! Qualifying 11th might not sound too flashy, but his debut? Stellar. Bearman crossed the finish line in seventh place. Not too shabby, especially considering it was his first time out.
