Verstappen tops wet opening Malaysia F1 practice after delay

Sebastian Vettel needs to show his character at Malaysian Grand Prix to get F1 title challenge back on track

"Singapore was unfortunate for us three". Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on how you like your press conferences, none of the drivers were keen to throw blame around, with Max Verstappen calling it "a very unfortunate moment".

Hamilton capitalised and went on to win from fifth on the grid, opening up a 28-point lead - enough to retire from the next race and still be top of the standings. "With things like this happening, what can you do?"

"Obviously, it's never good to be behind, we'd like to be in front, but we're not, so we've got to take it from there".

"My approach is right, so why should I change something?"

"You have some obligations you have to look after".

Pierre Gasly's presence in the second session ensured that Marcus Ericsson and Carlos Sainz spent much of their time sitting quietly while the assembled media put questions to F1's next big potential talent.

A third-lap cloudburst made the track nearly undrivable, but despite a spin on to the grass and a minute-long pit stop to clear debris from his damaged auto, the peerless Michael Schumacher proved king of the wet by managing to lap five seconds quicker on intermediate tyres than the other drivers tip-toeing around on full wets. "I've just got to make sure I keep performing as I have been".

"The lights went off, we did our start, everyone was trying to do his start and then the way it happened it ended up pretty bad for all three of us, but that's the way it went".

"But I am quite confident we can be loser tomorrow".

This weekend Formula 1 farewells Malaysia. I remember 2005, I think, in karting, I raced together with Esteban (Ocon) and Charles (Leclerc) in minikart.

F1's motorsport managing director Ross Brawn welcomed the inclusion of the Championship for this weekend's Malaysian GP.

Lamentable also is the loss of one of the most challenging races on the calendar.

"You always know that with used tyres it is not fantastic to do a lap but I still improved my lap time by 0.4s".

"We just need to see tonight if we can improve the balance of the vehicle a little bit and then we can see if we can challenge the Ferraris, but they look very competitive", Verstappen said.

Following on in quick succession after Singapore is the Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang circuit.

On April 7, Prime Minister Najib Razak said that the cabinet had agreed that this year's race would be the last, citing rising costs and falling ticket sales.

Thirteen other drivers headed out and completed an installation lap before pitting, with the Mercedes, Red Bull and Force India duos choosing to stay in their respective garages at first.
