Vettel wins Malaysian Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel heads home team-mate Mark Webber for a Red Bull 1-2 with Nico Rosberg third for Mercedes.
Sebastian Vettel took victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday ahead of team-mate Mark Webber as Red Bull Racing finally realised the potential it had shown in the opening two races.

Vettel took the lead from team-mate Mark Webber at the start and then headed the pack pretty much throughout. It was a welcome - and some might say crucial - result for the Milton Keynes-based outfit after reliability woes cost the team victories in Bahrain and Australia.

Nico Rosberg took the final spot on the podium for Mercedes followed by Robert Kubica's Renault and Adrian Sutil, who held off Lewis Hamilton, to take sixth for Force India.

Felipe Massa was seventh for Ferrari with Jenson Button eighth and Jaime Alguersuari ninth in his Toro Rosso. Nico Hulkenberg took the final point in tenth.

raj, how do you mean Sutil cocked up Lulus race? By not letting him past? :rolleyes: As soon as Hami came up against another Merc engine, thats the result, even with new soft tyres that allow him to be 1,5 sec faster. Just not good enough that dude, compared to a certaing young german :D

We post and bitch because we care about F1. I have been watching F1 since 1981, that's almost 30 years. F1 has never been the farce it is these days. I want my F1 back! As a long time loyal fan I think I'm entitled to criticize what I deem fit. If we (and others like me) aren't allowed to vent our frustration for the sad state of affairs F1 has come to, then the status quo will remain and no hope of improvement is in sight. So, thanks for your advice but no, I will not shut up and I will bitch and moan as I see fit, I'll make my voice heard any way I can, and I can only hope other discontent and disillusioned F1 fans do the same. We are the reason F1 exists.
