Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton had a royal battle on track in Bahrain, unfortunately ending in yet another mistake from the Ferrari man.
Vettel has been showing signs of suspect behaviour under pressure in the last few months, the end of his 2018 championship challenge being the most obvious example, and the German former World Champion would once again crack in the heat of battle in Bahrain, spinning under pressure when racing against the Hamilton driven Mercedes on the 39th lap.

The incident, which would lead to Vettel also losing his front wing when heading back to the pit lane, would be a curious one. Having brilliantly withstood pressure from a charging Hamilton on previous laps, Vettel would spin the Ferrari whilst trying to get back on the power and reduce the space between himself and the reigning World Champion, giving yet another look at the cracks that have been forming in Vettels armour over recent seasons.
A shame, considering the great battle that was unfolding between the two most successful drivers in the current field, and something that will no doubt come back to haunt the German once again as the season progresses.
