Sebastian Vettel finished first at the Bahrain GP this weekend to post the first win for Red Bull this season, with team mate Mark Webber finishing fourth.
The race was without incidents as there were continued protests in the troubled Gulf kingdom. 2007 champion Kimi Raikkonen finished second in his Lotus while teammate Romain Grosjean finished third to earn his first podium finish. Kimi drove an excellent race to get past the highly competitive field to finish second after starting ninth on the grid. Kimi got past Webber, his teammate Grosjean in nicely timed smart moves. Next, he was closely in pursuit of the race leader Vettel who was told to conserve his tires. Both pitted at Lap 40 and then the pace of the Red Bull was too good for the Lotus to get near it eventually ending Kimi's challenge.
