Formula One: Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel wins Bahrain Grand Prix

MANAMA (AFP) - Germany's three-time defending world champion Sebastian Vettel won the controversial Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday.

The Red Bull driver - who extended his lead in the title race - led home the Lotus's of Finland's Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean of France.

It was the same finishing order as last year's race and saw Vettel pass Jackie Stewart on the all-time winning list with his 28th Grand Prix win.
