Formula One: Hamilton takes blame for Bahrain penalty

Bottas was off the pace after the team were unable to bleed off pressure in his tyres on the grid due to the failure of a generator and Hamilton was the team's best chance of at least catching Vettel. If anyone ever thinks I should feel happy with second, then I don't really know what to say.

"With Lewis we never saw it actually".

"We were just saying that we were both pushing". "I had a good feeling yesterday and after a couple of laps (today) I thought everything was making sense". It was his 11th podium. "And then in the second and third stint still the pace wasn't there and the vehicle didn't feel as it did yesterday, so we'll have to find out what the problem was". "It was a really tricky race today".

"I think there would have been a possibility".

He then pitted from the lead to take Soft tires on Lap 10, getting the undercut on Bottas and Hamilton and reentering in 12th. "Lewis could challenge Sebastian".

Hamilton was allowed to pass team-mate Valtteri Bottas twice as he tried to overcome a five-second penalty for slowing Daniel Ricciardo down in the pits.

"The pit lane was my fault, so apologies to the team for losing the time there".

"I try to handle it the best way I can but it eats you up a little bit inside and you have just got to try and cope and move forwards".

'That is exciting and that means all of us in the team have to be operating at our maximum every weekend.

Vettel now leads the title race with 68 points ahead of Hamilton on 61.

Vettel though was on song from the beginning, passing Hamilton into the opening turn as the Brit bogged down on the start. In a 57-lap thrilling race filled with mixed emotions of tension and excitement, only 14 cars managed crossing the finish line, with six retirements.

Verstappen asked his team to match that strategy and he came in on the next lap. It's a moment of realization that if you don't react, you're going to lose the race. After Vettel won the first race in Australia and Lewis Hamilton the second in China, it became clear to everyone that the two would fight it out for drivers' championship.

After the safety auto went in, Sebastian Vettel was leading the race.

The stewards took a dim view of Hamilton's actions - declaring he drove "unnecessarily slowly and erratically" and slapped him with a five-second timed penalty and latterly two points on his licence.

There was some frantic action behind the leaders, with Fernando Alonso battling it out in midfield. "I see the point, but still it's tough when you're on pole and trying to win a race".

'It is the small percentages now which is what racing should all be about, ' Hamilton added. He also sat out his time penalty at this point.

"Thanks to Valtteri for being a gentleman", said Hamilton, who endured a much more hard relationship with Nico Rosberg, his former Mercedes teammate.

Meanwhile, Briton's Jolyon Palmer started a career-high 10th, but finished 13th and last of those who got to the end. Team mate Vandoorne's engine was too sick to even make the start.
