F1 2018: 5 craziest moments of The 2018 Bahrain Grand Prix

10 April, 2018, 19:51 | Author: Chad Mckenzie
  • Kimi Raikkonen has escaped a grid penalty following his unsafe release in the final moments of FP2

And although Mercedes recovered to finish second and third on Sunday, Bottas was unable to pass Vettel for the lead.

Raikkonen later issued a team statement saying: "What happened to our guy Francesco today at the pit-stop is very unfortunate".

Behind him and Gasly, Magnussen took fifth ahead of Hulkenberg and Alonso, who spared McLaren's blushes with a superb drive after a awful performance in qualifying, trounced by the Toro Rosso using the Honda engine McLaren rejected as not good enough past year.

Raikkonen was immediately ordered to pull over as the mechanic received initial treatment in the pit lane. Hass Ferrari's Kevin Magnussen came in fifth, followed by Niko Hulkenberg for Renault in sixth.

There were also celebrations at Sauber, with Sweden's Marcus Ericsson finishing ninth for his first points since 2015 and the Swiss team's first of the season, but gloom at Williams whose drivers finished last. Moments later, having left his pit, Raikkonen was told to stop, the Finn subsequently climbing from his auto and retiring.

For the first time in the game, Atletico had established a momentum and Navas had to produce a good save to deny Koke as they pressed once again.

Raikkonen had entered the pits in an attempt to put pressure on Mercedes.

Another master strategy call from the Mercedes pit wall sold Ferrari on a two-stop race while the Brackley team's intention all along was dual one-stop races utilising the medium compound until the end (remember, this year's medium tyre is a degree softer but still longer-lasting than the compounds below it).

Raikkonen's left tyre was still being attended to when he slammed on the power and he drove straight into the leg of the mechanic who was badly hurt. "Shanghai has always been a good hunting ground for me, so I really hope that we can go there with some strength", Hamilton said.

Bottas slipped adrift of Vettel after the first stint, the gap hovering around six seconds, but was equipped with Mediums, as opposed to the Softs employed by Ferrari. I don't know more than that.

His team-mate Sergio Perez, and Brendon Hartley were both given 30-second penalties after the race for a mix-up on the formation lap, relegating them from P12 and P13 respectively to the bottom of the standings.

He has also instructed his secretary of agriculture "to implement a plan to protect our farmers and agricultural interests". Beijing responded in kind nearly immediately, announcing plans to impose duties on $50 billion in American products.

"Sebastian Vettel beats Mercedes", was Martin Brundle's reaction to the German's victory on commentary, and the Sky Sports F1 expert described Vettel's ability to nurse his tyres for 38 laps as an "extraordinary effort".

Vettel now leads Hamilton by 17 points after two of the 21 races.

Starting from second place, Kimi Raikkonen looked blazingly fast all weekend, having narrowly missed out on pole himself.

The team, and Raikkonen, had suffered a similar unsafe release from the pits during second practice on Friday, for which they were fined 5,000 euros.
