Red Bull driver Verstappen wins Malaysian Grand Prix

Maurizio Arrivabene: “It Was Clear We Had A Very Competitive Car” Malaysian Grand Prix Race

Verstappen's Australian team mate Daniel Ricciardo, last year's victor at Sepang, finished third.

The 30-year-old's qualifying upset left the way clear for Hamilton to chalk up his 70th career pole position.

Perez, who returned to his home town of Guadalajara after the last race in Singapore, has started a fundraising campaign for relief efforts.

The Formula 1 Series waves the green flag for the Malaysian Grand Prix very early Sunday morning.

HAVING taken a 25-point dive to Lewis Hamilton in the championship last time out, Sebastian Vettel is hoping to claw some of that deficit back this weekend in Malaysia.

"Previously, because of my interest in F1 racing, I came alone". The vehicle was unbelievable.

He has won the last three races, including the latest in Singapore that was gifted to him after the Ferrari pair collided into the first corner.

Starting from the back of the grid, Sebastian Vettel has a full selection of fresh tyres available and is hoping that gives him strategy options to use his Ferrari - quickest vehicle on the grid - to move through the field.

Vettel, meanwhile, was handed a 20-place grid penalty after Ferrari made several component changes to his engine before the race.

Kimi Raikkonen will be there to back him all the way and take the action to the Silver Arrows' camp.

"Well, I think it would have been more hard if I had lost the auto somewhere in the race, and it's obviously different but with a collision at the start like that, I think. that was when we had to go to the stewards", said Vettel. "Ultimately it is down in performance, but fortunately it didn't make a difference". We stopped developing the 2017 vehicle quite a while ago to concentrate on next year's auto.

Now the hunter rather than the hunted in the championship race, Vettel doesn't feel under any less pressure to produce results, choosing to focus on each of the six remaining Grands Prix one at a time.

"They had the upper hand on us today".

"Somehow we managed to turn it around and it is a real surprise to be up here with these guys", added Hamilton, who secured his ninth pole of the season at the last-ever running of the race. We didn't have the pace this weekend.

"We've had a great history here", said Carey, who replaced former supremo Bernie Ecclestone in January.

Since signing a new Mercedes contract for next year, Bottas has hit a poor spell of form and he finished fifth.

"I didn't have any pace, that was the main issue. We discussed it (and) Lewis was of the opinion that it wasn't the right moment".

Esteban Ocon rounded off the top ten in the Force India ahead of Jolyon Palmer's Renault, the Williams of Massa and the second McLaren of Stoffel Vandoorne.
