Vettel wins in Malaysia

Sebastian Vettel triumphs in Malaysia ahead of Mark Webber and Lewis Hamilton
Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel wins the 2013 F1 Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit after a tight scrap with team-mate, Mark Webber.

Vettel, who started from pole position, slipped back to second following the first round of pit stops, and then trailed Webber until late on, when the two went wheel-to-wheel, with the German eventually re-taking P1, albeit not without controversy after the team had instructed them to hold position.

Lewis Hamilton meanwhile took the final spot on the podium for Mercedes, with Nico Rosberg following him home in fourth in the sister car.

Felipe Massa rounds out the top five for Ferrari with Lotus pair Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen in sixth and seventh. Nico Hulkenberg, Sergio Perez and Jean-Eric Vergne complete the points' scorers.

Sebastian Vettel.. The one man team. Absolutely demonstrated his worth as a selfish brat today. Even had the audacity to try and be friends with Mark after the race. Going to make it increasingly difficult to find a replacement for Mark. Who wants to be a number two to that?!?!

Seb disobeyed team orders , abused his tyre to get infront of Webber and then Webber obeyed team orders and stayed behind. Webber was clearly faster in the latter stage of the race until his was told to slow down. F1 is a f**
