What a race.<br /><br />The <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/04/22/race-recap-2013-bahrain-grand-prix-follows-the-template-of-this/">first line of</a> last year's <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/bahrain+grand+prix/">Bahrain Grand Prix</a> recap was, "The sand, the wind, the penalties, the contact and the one crash - all of them collided to make the Bahrain <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/f1/">Formula One</a> Grand Prix a surprise affair from day to day and lap to lap."
