Ferrari Storms Back in Bahrain

MANAMA Bahrain -- Brazilian Felipe Massa led Ferrari to a one-two victory at the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday, 3.3 seconds ahead of teammate Kimi Raikkonen who seized the championship lead from McLaren's Lewis Hamilton.

Massa's sixth career win brought him his first points of the Formula One season, at the same Sakhir desert circuit as his pole-to-flag victory last year.

World champion Raikkonen collected the 50th podium finish of his grand prix career and the Finnish 'Iceman' took over at the top with 19 points, three clear of BMW Sauber's German Nick Heidfeld, after three races. Hamilton, teammate Heikki Kovalainen and Poland's Robert Kubica are level on 14.

Hamilton endured a nightmare afternoon, finishing 13th and lapped by the Ferraris after making an agonisingly slow start and then running into the back of Fernando Alonso's Renault. McLaren was also leapfrogged at the top of the constructors' standings by BMW Sauber.

Kubica finished third, after becoming the first BMW Sauber driver to start a grand prix from pole position, with Heidfeld a close fourth.

BMW Sauber has finished on the podium in all of the first three races of the season, and has 30 points to Ferrari's 29 and McLaren's 28.

Kovalainen was fifth, ahead of Toyota's Italian Jarno Trulli and Australian Mark Webber in a Red Bull. Germany's Nico Rosberg took the final point for Williams.
