Highlights of Bahrain Grand Prix 2013 through the lens
Defending triple world champion Sebastian Vettel opened up a clear lead at the top of this year's title race on Sunday when he cruised to victory for Red Bull in the Bahrain Grand Prix. The race finished without any disruption amid tight security and despite earlier clashes between police and Shiite protesters in villages in the Gulf kingdom.
Vettel - who beat Lotus duo Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean in a repeat of last year's finishing order - proved himself as a master of the conditions in a hot and dusty desert contest. It was the 25-year-old German's second win in four races this year and the 28th of his career as he repeated his victory of 2012.
The German's victory saw him move into sixth on the all-time list of Grand Prix wins taking him past Jackie Stewart. He now has 77 points as leader in pursuit of a fourth successive championship triumph, 10 more than nearest rival Raikkonen.
