Vettel trouble and Sainz, good output Rosberg
Circuit Sakhir gave us a very interesting race because it brings together the right look for overtaking conditions. In addition the different tire strategies animated the race with many changes of positions in the points but the emotions began on lap recognition in which we were running out Sebastian Vettel by engine problems in his Ferrari that left us without one of candidates for the podium without Jolyon Palmer.
Nico Rosberg based much of his victory in an excellent outlet for the dirty area that allowed him to overcome a more doubtful Lewis Hamilton. The English also had bad luck because Valtteri Bottas who had placed her wake after a great start hit him pretty damaging the Mercedes and by lowering the reigning world champion to sixth place.
Sainz also had problems because Sergio Perez impacted with the back of the Toro Rosso causing a puncture. The Spanish entered the lane pit but the car was badly damaged. Under these conditions it rolled for 28 laps but was final and options safety car was very low, so the team decided to withdraw. Too bad for the Spanish because his partner was sixth Verstappen making it clear that Toro Rosso had the potential to add a number of points.
Rosberg ran away from all these problems and after few laps and had seconds ahead of Kimi Raikkonen did not go well but was placed second due to the problems of Hamilton. From there the German and his team signed a perfect race without any mistakes that earned the win with some comfort. Meanwhile Hamilton came from behind with a damaged Mercedes but even fought for seeking the second with Raikkonen. However Ferrari was well in the strategies and English had to settle for third place.
All drivers of the points signed an excellent career. Daniel Ricciardo was 4th with the Red Bull with an excellent work but was not left behind Romain Grosjean debutant Haas F1 Team that goes far better than expected and already has a 6th and 5th in the first two races of the year.
