Motor racing: Sebastian Vettel wins Bahrain Grand Prix for Ferrari | Reuters

MANAMA Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel won the Bahrain Grand Prix to go seven points clear at the top of the Formula One standings on Sunday, with Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton staging a late charge to finish second.

Hamilton's Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas was third, after starting on pole position for the first time in his career.

The victory was Vettel's second of the season after the four-times world champion won the opener in Australia. Hamilton, who won in China last weekend, crossed the finish line 6.6 seconds behind.
