Sebastian Vettel's victory in the Bahrain Grand Prix - the fourth different winner in as many races - has again turned the F1 point standings on their head, with the German returning to head of the table.

Despite a poor start to the year, Vettel was the surprise leader after Malaysia, and returned to P1 with his first win of 2012. He should have been followed by Jenson Button, but the Briton's late retirement saw him fail to score for the second time this season, and dropped McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton just one place instead of two.

Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso also vault above Button, who remains tied with the Spaniard on 43 points, while Chinese GP winner Nico Rosberg occupies sixth spot.

Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean both climb the order after snagging useful points hauls, while Felipe Massa finally opened his account and Michael Schumacher doubled his tally after coming from 22nd.
