Malaysian Grand Prix 2017: Five drivers who need a good performance

Formula Farce? Every driver runs out of fuel in F1 support race

Red Bull's Max Verstappen gave himself a flawless 20th birthday present by winning the last Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday, while Lewis Hamilton stretched his Formula One world championship lead to 34 points.

Hamilton secured the 70th pole of his career in qualifying, and his fourth straight in Malaysia, while Vettel failed to set a time because of an engine problem.

Hamilton, a three-time world champion, then produced a flawless performance to increase his standings lead over Vettel to 28 points with just six races remaining - starting at the Sepang International Circuit on Sunday.

Lewis Hamilton extended his lead in the Formula One world championship with a second-place finish at the Malaysian Grand Prix but his Mercedes team now head to Japan with more questions than answers.

"I'm sorry what happened to Sebastian but we somehow turned it around, it is a real surprise to be up here with these guys".

Separatists Vow to Defy Police Ultimatum Over Catalonia Vote

"It has been an awesome atmosphere but I think even this year will be very wonderful". "Considering the issues we had with the auto, it's a good weekend".

His Mercedes team-mate and title rival Nico Rosberg had collided with Sebastian Vettel at the start and fallen to the back.

Vettel clocked a new lap record to go quickest in second practice with his Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen second. "But who knows, maybe we're back after a year or two, I don't know". "Tomorrow is a long race and it will be tough for tires".

"I feel positive, the debrief was one of the best debriefs we have had". If the Italian team can maintain its edge over Mercedes for the rest of the weekend, it could provide Vettel with the flawless opportunity to recover some of the 25 points he lost to Hamilton two weeks ago when he crashed in Singapore. The lights went off, obviously, we did our starts, everyone was trying to move at the start, and it was the way it happened.

"Fridays are when you play around and try some things", Vettel said.

Max Verstappen qualified third ahead of Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo, while Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas was fifth.

"I think it would have been more hard if I had lost the auto somewhere in the race", the German, a record four-time victor in Malaysia, said.

Fans throng into the track to see Red Bull's Max Verstappen, who won the Malaysia Grand Prix 2017, at the podium in Sepang October 1, 2017.
