Bahrain GP: 1-2-3 for Renault-powered F1 drivers

Tags: bahrain

Renault-engined drivers locked out the podium in today’s Bahrain Grand Prix, with Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel taking a commanding win over Lotus F1 Team’s Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean. It is the second year in a row that the Renault RS27 V8 engine has made a clean sweep of the Bahrain podium, and the first time since that race that an engine manufacturer has monopolized the top three.
