Red Bull Racing's Team Principal Christian Horner was disappointed after Sebastian Vettel lost victory at Bahrain due to a spark plug failure. Vettel did his best to limit the damage and finished the race in 4th position behind the Ferrari-duo and Lewis Hamilton.

Horner said after the race: "It was cruel luck with Sebastian today. He drove a great race and was pulling away at the front. We had a very good pit-stop with him and he was controlling the lead comfortably until Lap 33, when he had a sudden loss of power. He was then powerless to defend from the Ferraris and Hamilton but drove extremely well to retain fourth position.

"It gives us valuable points but, ultimately, it's very disappointing to lose such a great opportunity for a victory."
