Reigning world champion claims his third victory of the 2015 season at the Sakhir circuit
Lewis Hamilton made it three wins out of four in the 2015 Formula 1 World Championship with an impressive display in Bahrain on Sunday.
The British and Mercedes driver, who has previously won in Australia and China this year, took the chequered flag at the Sakhir circuit, ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.
The victory extended Hamilton's lead at the top of the driver standings over team-mate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who finished third and fourth in Bahrain respectively.
Hamilton increased his lead over Rosberg in the standings to 27 points. The Briton now has 93 points to the German's 66.
It was a second successive victory for Hamilton in Bahrain after he pipped Rosberg in a thriller in 2014.
Hamilton had started the race from pole position, his fourth in a row, and got away smoothly to dominate the race from the front.
