F1 Malaysian GP highlights.

The Malaysian GP was quite a memorable race. There were some incidents which stood out and gave this race a rather controversial air. Number one on this list of highlights would be Sebastian Vettel’s outright disobedience when it came to taking orders from the team head. It all started in the 46th lap when Vettel disobeyed orders to stay behind fellow teammate Mark Webber. The two battled it out and Vettel seized the first place at the checkered flag. After the race Vettel apologized and said that his team deserved a reasonable explanation but he just couldn’t think of one. Can one really blame Vettel? Both winning and following orders are in his blood, he must have been under immense stress to have had to act the way he did.

Meanwhile, McLaren racer Jenson Button had a bit of bad luck too. McLaren showed the same pattern of pit-stop slip ups like they did last year, despite having one of the best and fastest cars on track. Button started off well, when he was able to move to 5th position from 7th, he had an outside chance of having a podium finish because he was making fewer pit-stops. Unfortunately a pit-stop blunder ruined his chances of finishing in the top 3. After a pit-stop his car was released without the right-front wheel being tightened properly and he had to stop half way down the pit lane while his crew rushed forward to rectify the wheel. This incident cost him dearly, and when he was back on track he had slipped to the 14th position. That’s not all, later in the race he had to retire because of severe vibration from the left-front wheel of his car.

Vettel finished first followed by Webber and Hamilton.

The Force India team seemed to be doing well in the practice session, and thought that there would be a good outcome on Race Day, however this was not so. Both racers, Di Resta and Sutil had to retire in laps 19 and 24 respectively due to faulty wheel nuts. The trouble started when they simultaneously called for a pit-stop, they lost considerable time here and the team was not able to figure what exactly the problem was. So they decided to pull both cars out of the Malaysian GP and come back fighting in China.

Lewis Hamilton on the other hand was able to give viewers a laugh. Hamilton’s error came as he pulled in for his first tyre change and immediately steered the car towards the McLaren garage instead of Mercedes. Clearly 13 years on the McLaren team made him momentarily forget that he had switched teams this year. The McLaren team was quick to gesture Hamilton out of their garage lest he waste more time and this incident left a smile on team principal Martin Whitmarsh’s face. Despite this, Hamilton was able to finish third. Nico was right behind Hamilton and could have overtaken him but team principal Ross Brawn insisted he hold station, adding that Hamilton was backing off to save fuel at the team’s request. Hamilton commended Nico’s performance and said that he deserved to win this race.

During is match both players broke numerous Wimbledon and tennis records, including each serving over 100 aces, with the match being referred to as “the endless match”.  Do you wonder how the umpire stayed put for so long?
