rari driver Sebastian
Vettel held off a tre-
mendous late charge
from Mercedes rival
Lewis Hamilton to win
the Bahrain Grand Prix
yesterday and take the
overall lead in the For-
mula One title race.
Hamilton was catching
the German on every lap
but ultimately ran out of
time and finished almost
seven seconds behind.
"The car was really
amazing to drive," Vet-
tel said. "Lewis was a
threat towards the end
and with the traffic you
Vettel and Hamilton
were level with a win
each, but Vettel's second
victory of the season and
44th of his career puts
him in command head-
ing into the Russian GP in
Sochi in two weeks' time.
"We just have to make
sure we keep it going. But
for now the team has done

Vettel said. "I had a good
feeling yesterday and af-

I thought everything was
Mercedes driver Valt-
teri Bottas finished third
after starting from pole
position for the first time.
It was his 11th podium.
"I didn't have enough
pace today and we have
to find the reasons why,"
the Finnish driver said.
"It was a really tricky race
today. I was oversteering
all through the race."
Ferrari's Kimi Raikko-
nen was fourth.
Bottas made a clean
start but Hamilton was
beaten for pace by Vettel,
who overtook him head-
ing into the first corner.
"Sebastian was in my
blind spot so I didn't
know where he was,"
were also hit when the
British driver was given
a five-second time pen-
alty early into the race
for driving too slowly in
the pit lane and holding
up Red Bull's Daniel Ric-
ciardo, who was fifth.
There is strong mu-
tual respect between
three-time F1 champion
Hamilton and four-time
champion Vettel, and the
British driver gave him a
warm handshake after
Vettel completed the
57 laps of the 5.4-kilo-
meter (3.4-mile) track
in 1 hour, 33 minutes, 53
seconds, for his third win

fought back, taking the lead back with
four laps to go by gaining a lap on her
opponent, and finished on 59 points.
Kirsten Wild of the Netherlands won
bronze with 35 points.
"Before the race I didn't really want
to get a lap," Barker said. "I just wanted
to win the sprints and I was just kind of
forced into it by other people getting
laps and there was no other way to win
the race so I thought, 'yeah let's do it.'"

her world title in the women's Keirin
event. Vogel beat out the No. 3-ranked
