F1: Ferrari's (NYSE:RACE) Sebastian Vettel Takes Chequered Flag at Bahrain

“We finally have a competitive vehicle to count on and it is important to recognize the speed with which we implemented the developments, ” Marchionne said.

"I lost two tenths of a second from turn 10 to 11 in qualifying because the DRS did not engage".

Checkout what Lewis Hamilton did to get a five second penalty that probably cost him the race.

He went on to pass the Australian before serving his penalty during his second pit stop before finally passing Bottas in the closing laps and finishing behind Vettel. Once Vettel pitted for the final time on lap 33, Hamilton was back in the lead. "All I can say is that I gave it everything I could". "This was my fault". "I had a good feeling yesterday and after a couple of laps (today) I thought everything was making sense". But when I got to the pitlane it was four seconds. However, it's disappointing for the team to see Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari take home the race victory.

The German is now seven points clear of Hamilton in the F1 World Drivers' Championship while Bottas is already 30 points off the pace in third.

"The beginning for us to be that close was great".

"I did it because there was the potential Lewis could challenge Sebastian".

Bottas struggled with overinflated tyres while leading the opening stint following the failure of a generator on the grid.

Wolff said he did not like the idea of changing the rules of engagement but with early signs being that the title fight will be between Hamilton and Vettel, the team may do so. Vettel took the lead in the absence of Bottas and Hamilton. It's a very tough call. He was not happy with his McLaren car's performance, though, saying "I've never raced with less power in my life" over the radio. "We seem to have a really exciting world championship", Lauda added. He also rued a problem with his auto in qualifying which he believes cost him pole position.

IT MAY have looked like a stroll in the park but Lewis Hamilton said he fought every step of the way to secure his first victory of the Formula One season. "I was oversteering all through the race". I was looking after my tyres, so we were in a really good position.

It was Vettel's third victory in Bahrain and the 44th of his career, a signal that Ferrari not only have a fast and competitive auto again, but also that the team has rediscovered its confidence.

"You need to keep [the race open to both drivers] with only three races down in the season", Wolff said. "I completely understand the decision from the team to request that, and of course I did it". “Losing points for the team is definitely painful.”.

The 2017 Bahrain GP was surely fruitful for Mercedes.
