  • The punishment Ferrari have received for Bahrain GP pit incident

Vettel snatched an opportunistic win for Ferrari in Melbourne two weeks ago, despite Mercedes clearly having the faster auto.

The German, victor past year on this circuit, lapped the 5.4-km Sakhir track in a time of one minute 27.958 seconds on Saturday, edging Raikkonen by a margin of 0.143 seconds.

The major tussle in the early laps saw Lewis Hamilton, who started P9 after a gearbox penalty, versus Max Verstappen, who made a flying start from 15th place.

Verstappen says crash was 'a bit odd'
It all leads up to Sunday's race, which starts at 4.10pm BST and where Hamilton and Vettel will again expect to lead the pack. Vettel won in Melbourne , profiting from an error by Mercedes to finish ahead of Hamilton, who was leading from pole.

"I think I came on the radio with 10 laps to go and said 'I have everything under control, ' but I admit that was a lie - there was nothing under control". I really tried to keep it as clean as possible.

"I was just really grateful that my auto wasn't broken and I could continue".

Bottas had closed five seconds in five laps and was right on Vettel's tail as they entered the final lap - but a half-hearted move into the first corner was not enough and Vettel was able to hang on. However, following his first pit stop, he lost his track position to Hamilton, only to regain it by passing the Brit halfway through the race. But that led to Bottas, who had better tire wear, threaten him for the latter part of the race. Both Mercedes were now gradually whittling away the gap to the race leader, but Hamilton was audibly fretting over the team radio about what he needed to do to gain the upper hand.

"I am 17 points down already after just two races".

Three drivers retired from the race and they were big names.

Knebel threw a 95 miles per hour fastball for ball two, then stumbled to the ground and left with the assistance of trainers. The pregame festivities featured, among other things, a bald eagle landing on the field as a symbol for the United States.

The mechanic was standing next to the car's rear left tire, with his back turned to Raikkonen, and did not notice the Finn suddenly pulling away. The incident also cost Raikkonen a near-certain podium. That's when an unsafe release during a pit stop injured one of his pit crew and ended the Finn's evening. Two laps later, Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly gave way with good grace and yielded fourth place to Hamilton.

Magnussen was fifth for Haas and Renault's Hulkenberg sixth followed by the McLarens of Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne. The duo didn't have much space to work with because of Fernando Alonso's McLaren on the racing line, with Verstappen looking to squeeze the Brit wide, only to end up running over the Mercedes' front wing.

The former champions are now the only team yet to score points this season after Force India's Esteban Ocon secured 10th place.

Not since 1982 has a driver who won the first two F1 races earned the world championship.
