Heat on Hamilton after Verstappen ambush

  • The German star looked gutted as he made an early exit from qualifying in Sepang

"For his driving, we more or less agree with the other drivers, it's 19 to one", he told reporters.

"If there is a new spec engine or any improvements, that will be with a penalty and we will start last".

Here, we look at the main talking points heading into what could prove to be a pivotal race in this season's championship fight.

"It's cool because we'll work on those and we'll work on better procedures that are more efficient so that we apply them to the races coming up, stuff that we'll do next year, stuff that'll apply to our cars next year, so we become an even better team than we are".

Max powers to win and shows he is the real dealVerstappen turned 20 on Saturday and celebrated by putting his vehicle third on the grid as he continued his strong showings in qualifying this season.

Despite Vettel's effort, Lewis Hamilton extends his lead to 34 points in the World Drivers' Championship. "Dipping in and out of the window is the fundamental story of 2017", Wolff said. How can we fix our issues?

Hamilton has gained 31 points on Vettel in the past two races after problems for the German and his Ferrari team.

"We're still leading the championship, we've still got a great auto, each race is just really trying to understand more about the vehicle because there's constantly something new thrown in the mix, [that] can catch us off guard".


Hamilton rarely gets beaten for pace, especially when starting from pole position.

In theory, Vettel had faster tyres than Ricciardo, and it showed, reducing the time between him and the Australian by more than one second per lap in certain instances.

The young Dutchman was a definite crowd favourite who elicited cheers from the packed turn one grandstand every time he passed it.

This thread was started by reader "cb1965", stating how Hamilton and Vettel "seem to have swapped roles". "There is stuff that has been happening through the weekend that is not acceptable for this great team".

But while Ricciardo on the other side of the Red Bull garage has picked up eight top-three finishes this season - including third in the Malaysian Grand Prix - Verstappen has tasted champagne just twice.

"So, just before we headed for Suzuka we brought Max and Daniel to the Konnou Dojo in Shibuya for a training session in the 300-year-old martial art of Kendo".

Blunt as Marchionne's words are, it doesn't change the reality of Sebastian Vettel's predicament, with the German having haemorrhaged 50 vital points across the two races in Singapore and Malaysia.

"We saw there was a big tailwind, which is affecting you in the tow, and you're in the gust". But a strong showing at Suzuka would sweep away much of the gloom and doom that has followed the Japanese manufacturer around again this season, and hopefully ring in some optimism for 2018.
