Sebastian Vettel wins the Bahrain Grand Prix for Ferrari!
The second race of the season came down to a thrilling cat and mouse game between Ferrari and Mercedes, with Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel holding off the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton at the finish on a set of soft tires that had been on the car for 39 laps, while both his rivals were on fresher medium tires.
On lap 36 and something you never want to see happened: Kimi came in to change tyres and as he drove off, the mechanic on the left rear wheel was knocked over. He suffered fracture of the shin and fibula and is recuperating.
The desert saw many battles along the grid, standing out Pierre Gasly, finishing fourth in the Toro Rosso Honda, and Marcus Ericsson, ninth for Alfa Romeo Sauber.
