formula-one-world-championship-formula-one-paddock-club-bahrain-driver-celebration-grand-prix-experiences-quinteventThe 2015 Formula One season is moving right along, stopping in Bahrain for the fourth grand prix of the season. With Australia and Malaysia already in the history books and China around the corner, Mercedes AMG Petronas driver and reigning F1 Champion, Lewis Hamilton, and Scuderia Ferrari and former four-time World Champion, Sebastian Vettel, are the two all eyes are on.

Vettel gained momentum after his move to Ferrari at the start of this season, and blew past the powerhouse Mercedes AMG Petronas team during the 2015 Malaysian Grand Prix last weekend. The question moving into China and Bahrain is whether or not Hamilton will be able to place himself in first to keep the lead in the standings, or will Vettel surpass him once again and take first place on the leaderboard.
