F1 » Vettel hangs on to deny Raikkonen victory


Sebastian Vettel led for almost the entire race at Bahrain, but storming Lotus duo Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean made sure it was never comfortable for him at the front.

He got so giddy with the fingers that he put bunny ears over Kimi on the podium. Which could be considered being number two. Not sure that will go over to well once the others see the picture. But outside of that vettel drove a complete race and fully deserved the win.

Don't you find it interesting that Kimi was released from Ferrari to make room for Fernando, returns to Alonso's old team, and immediately demonstrates his quality?
Probably the only think Kimi is missing from his Ferrari experience is the money, and I suspect that will be addressed for next year with whatever top team comes calling, provided he continues to perform. And he should, as his style and his intellect in the car clearly suits the current rules and tire spec.

Kimi's first two stints on the option worked very well, and he pitted with most of the top cars on the prime (their second stint). I wonder if this strategy was a one off, or if the rubbering in of the track allows the options to extend their life enough to take advantage of their pace?
