PICTORIAL REVIEW: Bahrain Grand Prix

A look back in pictures at last weekend's 2013 F1 Bahrain GP, where Sebastian Vettel took his second win of the year to go ten points clear in the standings
With so many great pictures appearing on Crash.net over an F1 weekend it can be hard to keep track.

So, here we bring you ten pictures that sum up the 2013 F1 Bahrain Grand Prix, where Sebastian Vettel took his second win of the year.


For the second weekend in a row, a Mercedes starts on pole and Nico Rosberg keeps his lead as the race gets underway…
Rosberg is clearly struggling to keep his rivals at bay however, and it doesn't take long for Sebastian Vettel to make a move stick as he sweeps into the lead of the race...
Fernando Alonso follows Vettel through into second but his hopes of victory are ended when he is forced to pit with a DRS issue. It's a problem he will be forced to contend with for the rest of the afternoon...
A fine start sees Paul di Resta make up places early on and – having gone with a two-stop strategy – he takes the lead for Force India as his rivals pit; the Scot holding P1 until he then dives in for new tyres…
Having clashed with Giedo van der Garde's Caterham on lap one, Jean-Eric Vergne becomes the one and only retirement of the race as a result of the damage to his Toro Rosso…
McLaren again struggle to fight at the front of the field, and its drivers find themselves squabbling on track - with Sergio Perez and Jenson Button banging wheels while fighting for position...
A tough race for Ferrari gets worse as a puncture forces Felipe Massa to pit. – it's his second puncture of the race and means he will end up outside the points…
With Vettel leading from Raikkonen, all eyes are on the fight for third and Romain Grosjean is able to take the place with a late move on di Resta's Force India...
Entering the final lap, Mark Webber sits fifth for Red Bull, but Lewis Hamilton and Perez both manage to pass the Red Bull man before the line...
Victory goes to Red Bull however, with Vettel taking his second win of the year ahead of Raikkonen and Grosjean – the result being a carbon copy of the Bahrain race twelve months earlier.
