Mercedes AMG Petronas scored a one-two finish at the Bahrain Grand Prix with winner Lewis Hamilton edging teammate Nico Rosberg by just a second. The wins marked the second straight one-two finish for the Silver Arrows and extended the team’s lead on the summit of the Constructors’ Championship. Mercedes AMG currently has 111 points, leading comfortably against closest pursuers Force India with 44 points and McLaren with 43 points.

Despite finishing second to Hamilton, Rosberg still lead the Drivers’ Championship with 61 points. Hamilton is second in the Drivers’ Championship with 50 points. At third is Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg with 28 points. Hulkenberg was fifth at the Bahrain Grand Prix while Force India teammate Sergio Perez was third. Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull Racing was fourth.

Hamilton was all praise for his teammate Rosberg, saying that it was tough race and it has been a long time since he had such a contest. He remarked that Rosberg drove fantastically well and had the pace on over, although Hamilton managed to hold on. He said that when one is racing a teammate, the pressure is really intense and they both knew that they had to “bring the cars home for the team and for the championship.”

He added that the second one-two finish is just fantastic for them. The win allowed Hamilton to claim his 24th Formula One career victory and his third for Mercedes AMG Petronas. Rosberg also claimed his 14th F1 career podium and his 12th for the team. Hamilton quipped that he is proud to have joined racing legend Juan Manuel Fangio with 24 Grand Prix wins.
