Sebastian Vettel wins engrossing Bahrain Grand Prix

ferrari-GP-bahrain-vettel-vittoria-media-featFerrari's German driver Sebastian Vettel won the Bahrain Grand Prix, his second title of the three race old 2017 Formula One season on Sunday. Britain's Lewis Hamilton and Finn Valtteri Bottas, both with the Mercedes team, finished in second and third places, respectively. Kimi Raikkonen, also from Ferrari finished fourth, despite encountering a few difficulties. He fought back to finish just off the podium.

Hamilton's race was ruined by a five second time penalty for driving unnecessarily slowly in the pit lane as he battled Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull. Ricciardo ultimately finished in fifth place, an important result for Red Bull, for whom Max Verstappen registered a disappointing DNF.

Ferrari competitive, but Mercedes' poor pit strategy decided Australian GP

Ferrari and its German driver Sebastian Vettel opted for a winning strategy on Sunday at the Australian Grand Prix, with Vettel managing to snatch the 43rd victory of his career.
