Sebastian Vettel admits he had "nothing under control" in Bahrain

Momentum shift? Red Bull and Ferrari are prising open the Mercedes grip

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff believes his team had put itself in with a 90 percent chance of winning the Bahrain Grand Prix and lost out on points that could prove decisive this season.

Mr. Vettel was not the victor at the Shanghai International Circuit during any of his 4 championship-winning campaigns, only making the podium once in his Ys 2010 to 2013 dominance of the motorsport.

Pierre Gasly's fourth place marked his first points in Formula 1 - not since Kevin Magnussen in 2014 has a driver scored their maiden points with such a high classification.

World champion Hamilton had to settle for second then third in the opening two races of the campaign, with technical difficulties costing the Mercedes driver.

Both have won four championships and, this season, are battling to secure an historic fifth title. "These tyres were done - they were done for the last 10 laps".

"I think I came on the radio with ten laps to go saying I had everything under control but that was a lie. I thought Bottas would catch me and I just tried to keep it as clean as possible". I tried to catch him, but it was just not enough.

Ferrari showed great pace all weekend and there would have been no guarantee for Mercedes of a Hamilton victory even if he hadn't been forced to start from ninth after a grid penalty. "It was damage limitation".

"If you had offered us second and third on Saturday, I would have taken it straight away".

Ferrari pit crew member, Francesco Cigarini is recovering following surgery on a double leg break after being struck by Kimi Raikkonen during a dramatic pit stop failure at Bahrain.

By now Vettel had built a gap of seven odd seconds over Bottas with Hamilton a further nine seconds adrift. Daniel Ricciardo, running a solid fourth, pulled over moments later with a suspected electrical issue prompting the deployment of the virtual safety auto.

Verstappen pitted and re-joined, but his race was over when, like Ricciardo, he stopped and retired. Hamilton passed all three of Fernando Alonso, Esteban Ocon and Nico Hulkenberg simultaneously into turn one.

Vettel pitted after 19 laps, passing the lead to Bottas, and rejoining fourth. Bottas was able to cut the deficit by one second a lap and soon found himself on the gearbox of the Ferrari.

Cape Town - Mercedes have admitted they were "probably a little bit too slow" to recognise the threat of a one-stopping Sebastian Vettel in Bahrain.

And Lewis Hamilton was favorite to win the season-opening Australian Grand Prix after his pole position lap was nearly a second quicker than the second-placed Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen.

Hamilton's frustration has continued from Melbourne, where a team computer error gifted Vettel the victory.
