PICTORIAL REVIEW: Malaysian GP

30 March 2013

With so many great pictures appearing on Crash.net over an F1 weekend it can be hard to keep track. So, here we bring you ten pictures that sum up the 2013 F1 Malaysian Grand Prix, where Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel controversially took the spoils...

Enjoy...




Sebastian Vettel leads from pole position - all the runners are on intermediate tyres. Fernando Alonso moves up to second after a good start, but tags the back of the #1 Red Bull into Turn 2

Vettel is one of the first of the front runners to pit and swap from intermediate tyres to slicks. Mark Webber follows a few laps later and does the undercut to take the lead
Mercedes pair Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg emerge as Red Bull's main threat, running 3-4 and seemingly in contention for victory...

Podium celebrations are somewhat muted. Webber is clearly angry and Hamilton also admits he didn't deserve third...
Post-race, Vettel has a lot of explaining to do. He apologises for his actions and admits he 'messed up'...
