    Default F1 - Malaysia - Spoiler alert

    Renault went up in flames during practice. It was being pushed back in the pits when the incident occurred. Apparently caused by fuel leak.

    Kimi had reported problems during practice, which turned out to be a torch left in the cockpit behind the accelerator pedal. No wonder performance was down . Ferrari are making too many mistakes, from tactics to err .. .misplaced tools. Maybe to problem is the tools

    Daniel wins in Malaysia, thanks to Hamilton engine failure on lap 41

    2/ Verstappen
    3/ Roseberg (had 10 second penalty for overtaking move on Raikkonen)
    4/ Raikkonen
    5/ Bottas

    Vettel out first lap - crash between Vettel, Verstappen and Rosberg

    Roseberg extends his championship point lead

    Edit - One of the best races for some time. Very tight tussle between Red Bull team mates before Hamilton's mishap.

    Hamilton's post race interview. Is he allegeding a conspiracy?



    He is not the first one to lose a championship (if that is how it turns out) because of lack of Mercedes reliability. Both Hakkinen(2000) and Raikkonen (2003) have been there before him.

    Interesting that only he is having the ongoing engine issues, is it his driving style, takes more out of the engines?

    he also has a different set of mechanics and engineers. perhaps that is a factor?

    moody little thing, isnt he?

    Someone forgot to calibrate the torque wrench. Another problem solved, lets move onto the next one.

    I thinks its Karma for this incident

    Complete sook.

    Throwing his toy out of the pram.

    No humility or "hey, Ive won two world chanpionships with these guys and they've been great. Sometimes its just out of your hands".

    Never liked him. He can drive, unlike Vettle who cant.

    Cangrats to Dan. Was there to pick up the pieces.

    Looking forward to suzuka

    I believe Suzuka is expected to suit the red Bulls

    They are usually 'up there'.

    Another 30hp would help them.

    Im betting max is going to be fairly handy around there.

    Im enjoying watching Max. Definitely think he is skating on thin ice with his ontrack and offtrack antics at times.

    Im sure there is imense pressure for him to win from all corners of that red bull team. As Webber said yesterday on the podium... Multi 33

    Max is still on a learning curve. he is fast but he has had some less than ideal results because he gets mixed up in stuff.

    Lauda said if he doesnt learn, other will teach him (my paraphrase). He mentioned when Senna started, Senna deliberately wrecked his qualifying lap. When he went to talk to him Senna had a very terse, rude reply. Next race meet, after Lauda qualified first, he circulated slowly waiting for Senna and then stopped in the middle of the track to block Senna. Senna came to him fuming in the pits. Lauda said to him we both want to win, you do it to me and I will do it to you. After that they got on ok.

    Vettel penalised for first lap accident in Malaysia. He will get three place start line penalty in Japan.

    Hamilton's engine failure at Malaysia was caused by first, loss of oil pressure, followed by big-end bearing failure. They have not determined the cause for the loss of oil pressure.

    Seeing as the distribution of the slippery stuff is almost as important to the cooling of the engine as it's other coolants (glycol/air) for it to go missing in the middle of a Grand Prix is a fairly lamentable situation.....
    Quill shaft failure?
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    It would be interesting watching Hamilton's reactions, if he had a Quill shaft failure at each of the remaining rounds, not that I am wishing ill on anyone, just a hypothetical.
