Vettel wins in Bahrain

Sebastian Vettel triumphs in Bahrain ahead of Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean
Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel wins the 2013 F1 Bahrain Grand Prix after a dominant performance.

Vettel, who started from second, took the lead from pole sitter, Nico Rosberg on lap 3 and then lead throughout, bar for when he relinquished top spot for a short while after his first stop. The three-time F1 world Champion eventually won and took his 28th career victory by 9.1 seconds.



Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen meanwhile battled through from eighth on the grid and made his two-stop strategy work to claim the runners-up spot, with team-mate, Romain Grosjean third, the Frenchman passing the Force India of Paul di Resta and demoting the Scot to fourth in the latter stages.

Lewis Hamilton rounded out the top five for Mercedes, with Sergio Perez sixth and Mark Webber seventh, the Aussie losing two places on the final lap. Fernando Alonso, Nico Rosberg and Jenson Button completed the points' scorers.
