Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel held on by the skin of his teeth to win a tense Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix in his 200th race start on Sunday. His tires fading, the championship leader took the checkered flag only 0.6 seconds clear of Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas, who piled the pressure on in the final 10 laps. Bottas’s team mate and reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton, who had started ninth after a five-place grid penalty for an unscheduled gearbox change, finished third.
