Ferrari gets first points

Ferrari got its first points of the the season after Kimi Raikkonen finished sixth in the Bahrain Grand Prix and with that gained three precious points.

Felipe Massa the other Ferrari driver finished the race but out of the points in fourteenth place.

It hasn't been a good start for Ferrari this season after failing to gain a single point from the first three races and the Bahrain race may offer a bit of comfort.

Now Force India is the only team that remains pointless. Last year Force India failed to get a single point the whole season.

Back to the race it was a third win out of four for Jensen Button who won the race after starting from fourth the grid.

I think his start helped him put pressure on the front runners and I could see that once he took the lead there was nobody going to stop him from winning.

Last week's winner Sebastian Vettel came second followed by pole setter Toyota's Jarno Trulli who managed to fend off a late challenge from current champion Lewis Hamilton who finished fourth.

In fifth place was Button's team mate Rubens Barrichello who gave the Brawn team some four more points for the constructors' championship.

The last two points places went to Toyota's Timo Glock and former champion Fernando Alonso who finished seventh and eighth respectively.

After finishing on the podium in the Chinese grand prix this time Mark Webber could only finish eleventh.

After two races dominated by the rain, it was good to see a race without rain once again and its not surprising to see that only one car failed to finish this race.

The next race will be the first European race this year at Barcelona. I think the two week break will give all the teams a time to tweak their cars and try and catch up with Brawn GP or else will be decided very early this year.
