Speedy Seb Succeeds in Sakhir

 

A super speedy Sebastian Vettel succeeded at the Sakhir International Circuit in Bahrain, securing he and Scuderia Ferrari's positions at the top of the championship standings.

Valtteri Bottas led the pack away after securing the first pole position of his F1 career. Unfortunately, it was short lived as he was quickly passed by Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.

Vettel dominated the race, capitalising on rival Lewis Hamilton's misfortunes. During his pit stop, the Mercedes driver was accused of driving too slow and holding up Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo. Hamilton received a five second time penalty for his actions.

Vettel speedily crossed the line, securing another victory for he and the Scuderia Ferrari team.
