Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel took his second win in four races this year as he dominated the Bahrain Grand Prix.   The world champion headed Lotus drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean, who denied Paul di Resta a first career podium in the closing laps.  The Scot had, like Raikkonen, done one fewer pit stops than the other leading runners but could not hold Grosjean.   Lewis Hamilton took fifth for Mercedes as Fernando Alonso rescued eighth after suffering a rear wing failure.  The Spaniard's wing panel twice became stuck open when he used his DRS overtaking aid, forcing him to pit both times for mechanics adjust it.

Vettel's win extends his lead over Raikkonen in the championship to 10 points, with Hamilton third a further 13 behind and Alonso fourth, 30 behind Vettel.  The German held off a challenge from Alonso on the opening lap, losing out through Turns One and Two before re-passing the Ferrari with a brave move around the outside into Turn Five.  He then passed pole-winner Nico Rosberg's Mercedes, skilfully around the outside of Turn Five into Turn Six and drove away into a race of his own, making three stops on his way to a third consecutive victory in Bahrain.  Behind him, Raikkonen used a two-stop strategy to move up to from eighth on the grid to take second, while Grosjean, making three stops, passed Di Resta for third with six laps to go.
