  • Vettel victorious over charging Bottas at Bahrain Grand Prix

Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel won for the second time in as many races Sunday but the Italian team's victory was overshadowed after one of its mechanics suffered a broken leg when he was hit by Kimi Raikkonen's vehicle during a pit stop at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Verstappen's puncture came as a result of contact with Hamilton, as the Dutchman had just made a move down the inside of the Mercedes at Turn 1 but then his left rear came into contact with Hamilton's front right.

Sebastian Vettel took pole position at the conclusion of Saturday's qualifying session followed by Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen.

The evening got even better for Ferrari, with Hamilton managing only fourth. "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".

"I need a little bit more confidence with the vehicle, which is not where we want it to be yet", Vettel said.

Valtteri Bottas tried to catch Vettel but fell short by just 0.699 seconds.

Brendon Hartley clocked the slowest time in practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix but believes signs are promising for the Formula One race.

"From pure pace tomorrow, I would say the two Ferraris are clearly the favourites". He admitted that this weekend was now going to be a case of damage limitation. A disastrous pitstop for team mate Kimi Raikkonen left a Ferrari mechanic injured on the ground and forced the Finn's retirement. Hamilton, who voiced his frustrations over the radio on several occasions, completed the podium in third place. That was quite intense. "The vehicle has been excellent".

In the lead, Hamilton was 5.3 seconds clear of Vettel after 22 laps, an advantage trimmed to half a second by lap 25 with Bottas five seconds adrift in third.

Either way - it's promising to see a Ferrari auto being quickest here - after they were clearly second-best in Melbourne. "We can't be happy with this", Bottas said.

Hamilton was serving a five-place penalty for changing his gear box so early in the season and he fought from ninth to earn a third-place finish.

Drivers must use gearboxes for six consecutive races before being allowed a new one. Hamilton's problem was caused by a hydraulic leak sustained in Australia.

Four-time world champion Hamilton, who created a minor controversy when he showed his approval on social media earlier in the day of the retention of grid girls at the Monaco Grand Prix, said before his penalty had been announced that it had been "a normal Friday". The team's Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo set the fastest lap in Melbourne as he battled Raikkonen for the final podium spot, with the outfit's boss Christian Horner saying the former champions' auto was actually quicker than Ferrari's.
