Sebastian Vettel WINS for Ferrari at the Bahrain Grand Prix - just

Kimi Raikkonen of Finland driving the Scuderia Ferrari SF71H on track during final practice for the Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix at Bahrain

In a dramatic, strategic and unpredictable race, a Ferrari mechanic was injured when he was run over by Vettel's team-mate Kimi Raikkonen at a pit stop.

Another area in which Liberty has big ambitions of expanding is OTT, yet the company's much-vaunted plan to launch Formula One's new live streaming service, F1 TV, have stalled once again after a push to roll out the product in certain countries before the season-opener in Australia were put on hold.

When normal race conditions resumed, Vettel led away from Bottas ahead of Raikkonen, Gasly and Magnussen.

Vettel was the first of the top four to pit, coming in on lap 18 and handing the lead to Bottas. Even as Bottas upped his pace, Vettel began to feel the effects of his tyres degrading.

Asked whether his win was down to Mercedes' level dropping off or Ferrari's rising, Vettel told Autosport: "It's a hard one".

Ferrari announced that it is now investigating as to why Raikkonen was given a green light when one wheel was yet to be changed.

"Them going onto the medium tyre".

Radio exchanges became fraught as Mercedes and Hamilton discussed the scenarios with a crackling signal.

Vettel started on the front row with Raikkonen, and Bottas started third.

Ferrari has been hit with a €50,000 ($61,410) fine by governing body FIA for exiting the pit stop "in a manner endangering team personnel and causing injury". We changed the tyres, I was taking it kind of easy and still catching up, it was going OK. The incident during Kimi Raikkonen's pitstop ended with one of the mechanics being hurt and suffered a fractured leg after being hit by the vehicle. In China it will be a different track and a different challenge, but we have to improve our vehicle and work on it.

Hamilton had his work cut out starting from ninth, and managed to achieve the podium finish he would have been hoping for.

Stoffel Vandoorne was eighth to make it the second consecutive double points finish for McLaren while Alfa Romeo Sauber-Ferrari got a points scoring finish thanks to Marcus Ericsson who was ninth.

Daniel Ricciardo, on the other hand, suffered an electrical problem which shut down his vehicle forcing him to end his race. This meant that their reigning world champion driver would start sixth or lower and he actually started ninth after qualifying in a lowly fourth place. "Max dived on the inside, a good manoeuvre, but a bit aggressive", he said. "I tried to be cautious".

"I think it was a racing incident".

"It's been an important weekend, we need to make sure we keep improving what are the negatives of the vehicle, compared to Ferrari". Verstappen had been involved in a collision with Hamilton on lap two as they battled for position at Turn 1, resulting in a puncture on the Red Bull that forced a pit stop before his retirement.

That was where he looked like staying until Raikkonen's error.

Another superb drive by Frenchman Pierre Gasly took him to a stunning fourth place for the Honda-powered Toro Rosso team ahead of Dane Kevin Magnussen of Haas.

"I was doing the maths in the auto: 10 laps to go, with that pace he's going to catch me", a relieved Vettel said.

"That was a lie". I tried to catch him, but it was just not enough.

"I knew there would be a chance at the end". However, few could have predicted the wild ride we saw today (check out our race report here). "I nursed the tires and it worked, but only just".

The German - like Hamilton, chasing a fifth world championship - saw the fast-finishing Bottas devour his lead in the closing laps but held on to win by 0.7 seconds despite badly deteriorated tyres. Hamilton, who voiced his frustrations over the radio on several occasions, completed the podium in third place, 8.5 seconds behind the front pair.
