Not sure what I want to see more more, Ferrari making a fool of themselves for the second race in a row, or Hamilton's engine blowing up again....

    Oooooh, @afrodude41 broke the rule ;) 

    Luckily this time if Hamilton’s engine blew and Vettel won he’d still be leading the WDC :) 
  • JiggyJiggy Member Race Steward
    Spoiler: Hamilton's engine blows, but then so does Vettel's.

    Marcus Ericsson wins the race because Petronas does a heel turn on Mercedes to go back to their old love.

    It's the final Malaysian GP, I feel we're due a shock result like that to send it off with a bang. Come on Marcus!

    The first and only win for Mclaren Honda is on the cards surely?

    Malaysia is the most underrated circuit on the calendar. High attrition rate, unpredictable weather and probably in the top 3 for racing. I'm going to miss it. 

    It's also one of Hamilton's least successful circuits. And one of Vettel's most successful. With Mercedes' likely to dominate Suzuka it's now or 2018 for Ferrari.

    Yeah, it was insane. The amount of people who said Max should have braked was what surprised me the most. When you look at the replays, it's clear VET and RAI were going to collide if they had properly cleared Max.

    It's because it's Max. It was like that for Maldonado too, at some point he was getting blamed for accidents that legit weren't his fault.
  • JiggyJiggy Member Race Steward
    So Pierre Gasly is replacing Daniil Kvyat for Malaysia. Looks like telling the team to shut up and then crash 2 laps later, on two seperate occassions, is about all they could take from him.

    Not that surprising, looking at his performances, but I don't think highly of Gasly as a talent either, so yeah. We'll see.
  • MBKF1MBKF1 Member Moderator
    Makes sense to get Gasly in there for a few races, it gives him time to get up to speed before a full on attack in 2018.

    I felt bad for Kvyat when he was dropped by Red Bull last year, but you have to say he's just not delivered at all since then. Kvyat's doing a worse job against Sainz than even Palmer is against Hulkenberg, it's right for him to go.

    But what are they gonna do for next year with Sainz leaving for Renault? There's no one in the young driver programme who's ready. Surely they can't keep Kvyat again. Personally I'd like to see Buemi have another crack at F1. I know he's been out of it for a few years, but he's still young at 28, has loads of experience from WEC and Formula E, and is a champion in both.

  • JiggyJiggy Member Race Steward
    That experience could help them with feedback to Honda for engine development too tbh. Buemi is not a bad pick with that in mind.

    I would love to see both Alguersuari and Buemi back in the team.

    Well, they did it. They posted a full race on the official YouTube channel, and what a cracker it is, too. (Though, it is only going to be up for 19 days, so you know, better get those YouTube downloaders going!)

    Here's hoping they post more classic races in the future. Or, you know, make their entire archive finally accessible.

    I love that old intro sequence. Brings back memories of when I was a toddler watching F1 with my dad!

    Clearly, given Merc's pace today, this championship is so over for Vettel.

    Alguersuari has retired so won't be back, I'd like Da Costa to finally get a turn.

    You're doing this on purpose because, after Singapore, you're hoping you'll jinx Vettel into another DNF again, right?

    I'm on to you Colt, they've fixed the drain. B)
  • GoldenColtGoldenColt Member Team Principal
    I'd love to deny it, but we both know you're right.

    Yeah, even Alonso was faster than them, so maybe he'll come back and take the title.
