Grand Prix of Malaysia F1 2017: Results of the race

Malaysian GP, says goodbye to Formula 1 with this race edition F1 2017. And it does so with maximum stresses between some riders and the movements that occurred on the track. And so, not even the lap of honour, that the cars go pretty slow, and picking up the rubber quietly or waving to the fans, have been respected. Vettel has been impressed with the Williams of Stroll that saw him not by the mirrors and in the end has resulted in some damage to the Williams and the Ferrari of Vettel shattered with damage severe enough. The big winner of this edition has been Lewis Hamilton to wide a little bit of his advantage in the world being today second. Yes, second, because the pace of the Red Bull has been very good here and Max Verstappen has been proclaimed victorious.

Vettel, which came out last after a fault in its engine yesterday due to a bad mounting of the same in the holder, and that forced him to not be able to contest the ranking and part of the free 3, has been able to climb today up to the 4th square and save a little bit of the dramatic situation that was going on at Ferrari to see how in the last GP of Singapore lost part of its aspirations in a race that could be dominated and taken advantage of Mercedes. And all by a wrong move of Vettel as he cried out enraged the Italian press. Meanwhile, his team-mate was not so lucky, which yesterday managed to be second in qualifying and today it has been forced to retire before the race in which I could have been on the podium. Kimi or if you want to be able to get out for a problem they do not yet know what it is.

on the other hand give the congratulations to Stoffel Vandoorne who yesterday came 7th and has managed today to maintain that square. In contrast, Fernando Alonso came out 10 things have been complicated more. Since yesterday was more back and in career also has seen as it has not been able to finish in the top10, losing the starting position and being 11th in the parting of the GP of Malaysia. In addition, Fernando has been involved in some of the struggles of the race with drivers such as Kevin Magnussen and also with the own Sebastian Vettel. The pilot spaniard has been criticised by Vettel who said that she had opposed the step, in order to favour Ricciardo. While Magnussen, who has had words risqué has been Alonso, which gave him the reason to Hülkenberg for what you commented a few races for a similar incident… and that also ended up with an “idiot” to the pilot dans.

Carlos Sainz has not had an easy race, because in the end he had to leave due to a problem in the electrical part of your Renault engine. By the way, and what has been said earlier with Vettel-Stroll, apparently the FIA has analyzed the crash and will have no consequences for any of the two, so that both drivers go out without penalties to consider an incident not deliberate and without serious consequences. And what about the final conclusion of all the GP what would it be? As the world continues to face Hamilton, unless something happens in the 5 races remaining, Red Bull have a better chassis without a doubt by the pace that have been imposed today despite the fact that behind take a Renault engine and that I don’t know what has happened to Fernando in this race, and yesterday in qualifying, however it is true that the performance of Vandoorne has been exceptional here and it deserves that position.

Next appointment, in the GP of Japan in Suzuka, which takes place in just a week. So we will return next weekend with the results of the sessions and also will tell you the most relevant news items that happen this week if there are any. In terms of the contract of Alonso, it seems that it will be announced after the GP of Japan, so we hope that you will make official the renewal with McLaren-Renault for 2018 or if by some surprise you will, that I don’t think so. And maybe that contract with Toyota for LeMans, who knows. Although I don’t think that will be discussed now, but later or the next year.
