Sebastian Vettel Wins Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix (PICTURES)

Sebastian Vettel described his performance as "flawless, seamless" and "pretty dominant" after racing to his second win of the season at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The 26-year-old comfortably finished ahead of Lotus duo Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean for a podium that was a repeat of last year at this race.

"The pace was phenomenal - we surely did not expect that - the car was very quick and it just started to get better and better towards the end when it was quite controlled," said Red Bull's Vettel.

"It was really a beautiful race, flawless, seamless, where you could push every single lap. We took care of the tyres, so overall I'm very happy, and we're in a good position in the championship."
