Despite mostly empty stands and petrol bomb throwing protestors, the 2012 Bahrain Grand Prix went off this weekend without a true disaster. 2011's version of this race was cancelled due to the ongoing protests there. This year, Bernie Ecclestone and crew rammed the race through.
At the end of the day it was Infiniti and Sebastian Vettel who took home the win, his first of 2012 and vaulting him back into the overall championship lead.
For fans of all motorsports it was cool to see Kimi Raikkonen finish second as the former F1 champ had his best run since dabbling in the WRC and even some stock cars in the US.
