Nico Rosberg has given a blow on the table with their second victory of the year, by winning a Grand Prix of Bahrain marked from the start by the abandonment of Vettel and the touch of Bottas, with Hamilton. Kimi Räikkönen, despite a plucked unfortunate, benefited from the problems of their rivals and ended up enjoying a career more than placid to add a second new post in one of their circuits fetishes.
Lewis Hamilton, despite being the great dominator of the weekend, failed again in the output -but this time it was not only his fault-and the strategy is not accompanied him. The third place we know very little.
The reliability of Ferrari just with Vettel
On the formation lap, the first blow of script: Sebastian Vettel broke the engine of his Ferrari and was forced to leave before taking the exit. A plucked Valtteri Bottas shone, gaining three positions before getting to the first corner… where it is carried forward to a Lewis Hamilton that, again, came out again very badly. The finn saw the hollow, the English will shut down… but it was too optimistic. The FIA understood that this exceeded what is commonly referred to as an action of her career, and punished him with a ‘drive through’. Goodbye to the dream of Williams to see its two drivers on the podium, to which is joined a new strategy pulling bad with Felipe Massa.

behind, Kimi Räikkönen, who made another exit to make it look, began to pick up while Nico Rosberg went to the victory unstoppable, without any kind of problem. Back, problems for Carlos Sainz: the spaniard touched with Sergio Perez, prodded and ended up weighed down until the end of the grill. That led to a vital change of strategy: we rode on medium tyres, to try to overcome… but back in the pits there was a problem at his second stop, when you picked up your car from the crane and he lost time valuable. A few laps with the car without any performance, he went into his box to leave.
options McLaren were very soon in the hands of Stoffel Vandoorne. His teammate, veteran Jenson Button, he had to leave very soon, when there was no MGU-H, as told by radio. The belgian began a great fight to stay in the points, in which-for the moment – seem to be their only kilometers in a Formula 1 Grand Prix this season. In the end, a tenth-place that he knows to gold.
The strategy began to play a leading role in the second half of the race. Lewis Hamilton, which harkened back to the third place, tried to catch to contrapié Nico Rosberg, but his last stint was too long and lost 15 seconds of life that ended up leaving you with no options to even try to reach a Räikkönen who continues with his love affair in Bahrain: last year I was second.
The other heroes of the day were Romain Grosjean, who was fifth with the Haas, and a Pascal Wehrlein, which exceeded expectations in fighting for the positions of points although at the end he stayed in 13th place. The race was all bent except the first six, which demonstrates the superiority of the above.
