Malaysian Grand Prix
April 10, 2011 by staff
There were no accidents, a lot of overtaking, shredded tires, bits of flying cars and even a little rain to add to the mix. For the more technically minded there are plenty of KERS and the use of the reduction of friction (DRS) as well.
But it was a desperately disappointing afternoon for Lewis Hamilton. On Saturday, he knew it was only slightly better corner negotiated away from taking positions poll here. But it was overcome by a tenth of a second yesterday and limped Vettel in seventh, behind not only German but also his team-mate Jenson Button, who finished second, Nick Heidfeld, Mark Webber and the Ferrari duo of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, who had seen off the pace all weekend.
A thrilled Vettel, who has won five of the six races dating to last season, again had problems with the KERS. In Australia, the Red Bulls had not used the system at all and yesterday, half of the race, Vettel was informed by his team did not use it anymore.
But when crossing the line that screamed: “Fantastic work guys every week is a pleasure to be with you Thank you – Yes.”
He later said: “It was another great day I thought I had a great start, but then I saw Lewis very close and I saw something black in my mirror and I knew it was one of the Renault, but I could not be happier. Of who I am today. ”
It was another good race for Renault, as Australia won a podium position. This time was no Heidfeld and Vitaly Petrov, who were third.
Was another good day at the office of the F1 rookie Paul di Resta, who was tenth again, winning a second point, and finished ahead of teammate Adrian Sutil? Although, after a horrible start, Webber made a good recovery to finish fourth.
But apart from the joy on the faces of Vettel is the most enduring image was crushed expression in Hamilton. He suffered tire problems throughout the afternoon after making a stop early. There were also three stops and Alonso, one of a number of drivers for it under pressure; in fact he found the back of him.
Hamilton later said. “This is racing, I think I started second and did everything possible to keep up and I really I have little to say at first I was stuck behind Heidfeld, Jenson had inside me. And Heidfeld on my outside so was crushed at the first corner.
“It was difficult to defend without hitting them. Throughout the race, my tires it was that on hand too soon, that has made us a new box before, the whole time we were at the beginning of boxing. My tires are made at the end. Only is one of those days. “
