Kimi Raikkonen fails to start in Malaysia

Despite being unable to seal an eighth win of the season, Hamilton still opens up his gap at the top of the championship over nearest rival Sebastian Vettel.

Max Verstappen capped a ideal birthday weekend with victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix and then hailed his Red Bull team for giving him an "unbelievable" vehicle.

After his vehicle broke down in qualifying, Sebastian Vettel did a great job to go from last to fourth in the Malaysian Grand Prix. "That goes against my heart but you live to see another day".

Hamilton could do nothing about Verstappen but, despite expressing concern about his car's lack of pace, was pleased to gain ground on Vettel on a hard weekend for Mercedes.

Having professed surprise at putting his vehicle on pole position, Hamilton could not live with the race pace of Max Verstappen - who took the second victory of his career as Red Bull won what could be the last race in Sepang.

Having been visibly moved as the Dutch national anthem played on the podium, he pointed to his early move on Hamilton as the turning point. Given the trouble that we have experienced with the vehicle, it is a good weekend.

TCU exposed that much. "That's what TCU thrives off of - being the underdog", senior cornerback Ranthony Texada said. Their defense got gassed just like anybody would, and Rudolph isn't the same quarterback when he's under pressure.

The final Petronas Malaysia Formula 1 Grand Prix race went out with the kind of bang it deserved.

It was only two years ago at this very same venue that Verstappen raced with the panache of a veteran to become the youngest Grand Prix driver ever to score World Championship points with an impressive seventh place.

Hamilton, however, still accomplished what he came to do-extend his lead over Sebastian Vettel in the championship race, with Hamilton finishing second in Sepang and Vettel down in fourth place. "If they finished the races as they should have performed, we would not have increased our points advantage, but would have lost many points to them". "I don't think we had the pace".

Vettel's relentless charge through the field ultimately earned him a fourth-place finish, while he even threatened to grab third from Ricciardo late on. The Dutchman, son of former Formula One racer Jos who made his debut in 2015 and was promoted to Red Bull part way through last year, took his first win on his Red Bull debut in Spain last year.

'It is always a special thing when you are able to extract a little more out of the auto than it is willing to do'.

Bottas wished to help Hamilton but Vettel pitted on the 28th lap for a successful undercut.
