I have been looking for the option using the google app itself, but when selecting the settings button inside, it does nothing, only stays in the same screen without the options in the second and third panel. So I dont know how to delete the bar on the main screen.
enter image description here

Besides the method that changes the launcher (that I havent tested yet), all the methods suggesting to disable google app or google search does not work because it does not uninstall or force the stop of the google app/google search inside the installed apps. So the idea its changed to how to disable google app in oreo 8.1.0.

Click and hold on the bar and drag it toward the the trashbin or remove text.

If that does not work then check out this article https://www.androidpit.com/how-to-remove-the-google-search-bar-from-your-android-homescreen

  • This was my first try and it does not highlight the bar nor appears the remove or trash option. I'm reading the article you suggested.
