Bottas's team mate and reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton, who had started ninth after a five-place grid penalty for an unscheduled gearbox change, finished third.

A subsequent Ferrari update suggested their pit crew member had sustained a double leg fracture, tempering their joy at a second win of the season for Sebastian Vettel.

A look at the major talking points from the dramatic Bahrain Grand Prix, where Sebastian Vettel withstood late pressure to win his second consecutive race.

After a tiresome season-opener in Melbourne, the Bahrain race was full of highlights.

And Hamilton said the team were simply lacking pace compared with their Maranello rivals. He had earlier told his team that everything was under control but that, he recognized later with a smile, was not at all the reality. In Australia I think we struggled a little bit with the feel of the auto. "There are a couple of different strategies tomorrow so I will try and eek out every last bit of power and strength from the vehicle". "There wasn't much. At the end of the straight, Valtteri had a bit of a sniff but fortunately he ran out of laps so I'm really happy".

The race enjoyed a climactic finish as Vettel, whose tyres were on the brink, was made to sweat as Bottas came close to overhauling him, but the German held on to top spot by half a second.

Brendon Hartley took the second Honda-powered Toro Rosso to a time that was eleventh fastest, while Sergio Perez's Force India set the 12th fastest time. Friday's practice sessions also offered encouraging signs with Raikkonen heading Vettel in a Ferrari one-two at the top of the time-sheets.


If he is punished for an unsafe release because a wheel was not attached properly Raikkonen could face a grid position penalty.

Running a two-stop strategy, Gasly remained out of trouble and easily pulled clear of his midfield opponents to record his best Formula 1 finish - and with it take his maiden points, having started from fifth on the grid.

"I started ninth so third is not bad at all", Hamilton said. With the VSC on track, Verstappen managed to crawl back into the pits.

"I just hope that we're moving forwards".

"I thought that was checkmate because we need to come in again. He drove into my left rear and gave me a puncture and also destroyed the diff".

Pierre Gasly's Toro Rosso, no match for the Mercedes, fell to Hamilton on lap eight as the British driver moved up to fourth and his lap times were mighty impressive on the harder soft tyres - with the team clearly opting for a one-stop race.

He caught Hulkenberg's Renault in the closing stages but had to settle for seventh, ahead of teammate Stoffel Vandoorne, who used medium tyres to good effect to climb to eighth after his second stop.
