Malaysian Grand Prix strategy guide

Malaysian Grand Prix strategy guide

World championship leader Lewis Hamilton hailed an wonderful turnaround Saturday after taking pole for the Malaysian Grand Prix with title rival Sebastian Vettel condemned to the back of the grid. Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen sure hope so. Welcome to being a 20-year-old.

"With races two and three back-to-back and without the possibility to top up, we filled the cars for both races before the start of race two".

The victory was the second of Verstappen's grand prix career, after a first in Spain past year, and came a day after his birthday.

Hamilton, who suffered a similar championship setback to Vettel a year ago in Malaysia when his engine blew while he was leading, downplayed the Singapore race as the season's decisive turning point.

"I believe we have a strong package and we are full of confidence". The auto was unbelievable.

The drain cover was subsequently removed by a marshal with FIA F1 race director Charlie Whiting and FIA safety director Laurent Mekies heading out to assess the damage. However, the race is due to take place in the intense heat of the afternoon at 15:00 and if the sun is out track temperatures are likely to rocket above 50C. Stewards made a decision to take no further action.

Hamilton added: "I went into the last race thinking I would lose a lot of points to Sebastian, so to come out the other way around it was a real surprise. Ultimately it is down in performance, but fortunately it didn't make a difference".

With the absence of the Formula One (F1) race at the Sepang International Circuit starting next year, the circuit will not be left idle or risk becoming a "white elephant" project, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said.

"They had the upper hand on us today. I think we can not finish fifth but we try to finish seventh", Steiner said. We didn't have the pace this weekend.

"We just have to maximize every opportunity we get", Hamilton said, offering some sympathy to Vettel.

Sharing his views was Bottas, who is now in third position with 212 points, but looking motivated to bring home glory as well as to chase Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari who is in second place.

"I didn't have any pace, that was the main issue. I didn't make it hard for him". We need to focus that we stay stable year-to-year, not just one year up and down because then you create a wave-effect and you never get a grip of what you're doing.

Force India's driver Perez also gave his support Thursday to the protesting sports stars.

Speaking to the press ahead of what is scheduled to be the last Grand Prix to take place in Malaysia, with the circuit not being contracted for the 2018 season or beyond, Raikkonen said: "To be honest I don't know if we're gonna miss it".
