Verstappen takes his second career victory as Daniel Ricciardo secures a double-podium for Red Bull, but a disastrous weekend for Ferrari somehow gets worse after the finish. Red Bull's Max Verstappen sealed victory at the Malaysian Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton finished second to extend his lead in the championship standings. Hamilton had started on pole for Mercedes but was passed by Verstappen early on and had no answer to the pace of the Dutchman throughout, with the second Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo taking the final step on the podium. 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. Vettel had started from the back of the grid after an engine problem meant the Ferrari driver could not set a time in qualifying, but he fought hard to finish fourth and limit the damage in the title race. Vettel had started the weekend promisingly but his race was summed up as he collided with the Williams of Lance Stroll on the in-lap. It left his Ferrari with suspension damage and he hitched a lift on the side of the Sauber of compatriot Pascal Wehrlein.
The four-time world champion opted not to pit under an early safety car, giving himself the chance to stop just twice and get the upper hand on the three-stopping Mercedes drivers of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. The start saw Hamilton make a clean getaway to remain ahead of Vettel and Rosberg, with the latter failing to make a move down the inside at turn one as he had planned on Saturday. Felipe Massa picked up a couple of positions off the line to move into fifth, whilst teammate Valtteri Bottas dropped outside of the top ten. Both of the Sauber drivers made a good start on the first lap as Ericsson moved further up into the top ten, but the Swede soon brought his race to an early end by spinning off the track at turn one when attempting an overtaking move. With his car beached, the safety car had to be deployed.
He is a four-time Formula One World Champion, having won consecutive titles from — with Red Bull Racing ,  and is regarded by many as one of the greatest drivers in the history of the sport. The following year, Vettel became the youngest driver ever to win the World Drivers' Championship,  also helping Red Bull win their first World Constructors' Championship. Soon after, it was announced that Vettel had signed a three-year contract with Ferrari for the season. He has one younger brother, Fabian, and two older sisters: Melanie, a dental technician, and Stefanie, a physiotherapist for disabled children. Vettel lives in Thurgovia , Switzerland amongst other racing drivers and is a fan of German football team Eintracht Frankfurt. Vettel provided the voice of character Sebastian Schnell in the version of the movie Cars 2 dubbed for German-speaking audiences. Vettel was in a relationship with, and is now married to, Hanna Prater, a childhood friend.

Formula 1 Midseason Retrospective: The Big Guns
Formula 1 seems intent on going out with a bang as Malaysia stages its last grand prix after 18 years. Valtteri Bottas and Kimi Raikkonen had been lucky enough to negotiate the same kerb only moments earlier without sustaining any damage. But Grosjean was not so lucky, his destabilised machine spinning wildly across the gravel beds before impacting hard into the tyre wall. Fortunately, the 31 year-old Frenchman was unharmed as the session was red flagged with just under half an hour to run. The next thing I knew, the tyre was not there anymore and I was just spinning and heading for the wall. FIA race director Charlie Whiting visited the scene, and the session was not restarted as he ordered an inspection of all of the drain covers, which may have to be rewelded in place to ensure that there are no repeats of the incident for the rest of the weekend. First there was the fallout in the wake of his social media support of recent protesting by American athletes, and his implied criticism of US president Donald Trump.
