World championship leader German Sebastian Vettel expects today's Bahrain GP to be decided by strategic decisions and the management of tyre wear.

Just as in China last weekend, when the race was decided by similar factors, Vettel said he felt confident that by saving tyres he and Red Bull were in with a chance of more success.

The three-time defending world champion finished second in Saturday’s qualifying.  He said: “It will be all about tyres and tyre degradation tomorrow (Sunday) once again. We will see what happens but it’s good to start from front row.”
