    Default Race results

    I haven't seen the race, only picked up some information from written reports, so if anyone wants to fill any gaps, go for it.

    1/ Verstappen
    2/ Hamilton
    3/ Ricciardo
    4/ Vettel
    5/ Bottas

    Vettel drove from last to 4th and then crashed with Stroll on the warmdown lap after the race.

    Stroll finished 8th ahead of his team mate Massa in 9th

    Sainz DNF

    Raikkonen was unable to start due to technical difficulties.

    Default Ferrari engine dramas - Malaysia

    Vettel had engine failure which preventing him from qualifying. Raikkonen had engine failure which prevented him from starting the race. Vettel had a new engine. Raikkonen had an engine which had done 3000km. Ferrari have identified that both engines had the same failure. Both failures were a failure of a deal in the connection between the engine and the turbo. The part is not a sealed part, so should not bring any penalties.

    Default Vettel gearbox

    Ferrari had fears that Vettel's gearbox may have been damaged in his accident with Stroll on the cool down lap after the race was over.

    The engine was immediately flown to Italy for examination. It appears only minor damage was to the casing of the gearbox and Vettel will be able to use the same gearbox in the next round without penalty.
