2015 Malaysian Grand Prix – Race


Sepang, March 29, 2015 – Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel took the first win for Ferrari since Spain in 2013 and his own first victory since Brazil in 2013, using a two-stop strategy in the hottest possible conditions and on very abrasive asphalt to finish in front of both Mercedes drivers. Vettel started on the P Zero White medium tyres and stopped for the mediums again on lap 17, finishing the race on the P Zero Orange hard compound from lap 37. His fourth victory in Malaysia – the 40th of his career – means that he is now the most successful driver in the history of the Malaysian Grand Prix. [Read More!]

A DOUBLE POINTS FINISH AND A RECORD


March 29, 2015
Max Verstappen finished the Malaysian Grand Prix in seventh, with his team-mate Carlos Sainz right behind him in eighth, the Spaniard ensuring he has a 100% record for finishing in the points in his two race F1 career! While there was a feeling the first round in Melbourne had not been a thriller, today's 56 laps of the Sepang circuit produced an interesting race, an unexpected winner and 10 points for Scuderia Toro Rosso. In addition, at the age of 17 years 5 months and 27 days, Max Verstappen becomes the youngest F1 points scorer in history. [Read More!]

Malaysian Grand Prix Sepang, 29th March 2015


For Scuderia Ferrari, today’s win is the 222nd, the first since the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix, while Sebastian Vettel is now on 40 wins.

Maurizio Arrivabene: “This is no one-man win: it’s a success for the whole team, which has been working impeccably at all levels. Seb was just unbelievable today, and Kimi was able to put on a fantastic charge from the back. The whole team has showed a great deal of discipline, just like a Swiss watch-or should I say, an Italian one! Today, the whole team gave me great emotions and I wish to thank everybody, including the women and men back at the Maranello factory, for putting on an incredible effort over the last months, burning the midnight oil. Now we’ve got to be realistic, keep our feet on the ground and our concentration at a high level, because Mercedes is still a formidable contender. After the race our President Mr. Marchionne congratulated the whole team. He’s really one of us, he likes to stay away from the spotlight but still gives us a powerful contribution. And he’s a real Ferrari fan!”. [Read More!]

“Able to mix it with the others”
Sepang International Circuit, Sunday March 29

Despite failing to get both cars to the flag, the Malaysian Grand Prix marked a significant step-up in performance for the whole McLaren-Honda team.

The two MP4-30s were the only cars to start the race on the Hard (Prime) tyres, but were able quickly to switch to the Medium (Option) when both boxed during an early Safety Car period. Jenson was delayed at his stop by an issue with the left-front, and was also hampered behind Manor’s Roberto Merhi, who failed to catch the cars in front ahead of the restart. [Read More!]

After a quite a promising qualifying to the Malaysian Grand Prix on the Sepang International Circuit, the race ended in disappointment for the Sauber F1 Team: Felipe Nasr had to pit on lap two after he made contact with Kimi Räikkönen’s Ferrari. The mechanics had to fit a new nose to his car, and, as a result, his chances were significantly reduced. He finished in P12.

Crosstown traffic


And a mixed-weather afternoon
It was a rather eventful qualifying session for Lotus F1 Team with Romain Grosjean setting the eighth fastest time and Pastor Maldonado the twelfth in a mixed-weather afternoon at Sepang.

Both car progressed through a dry Q1 and were quickly readied for the dry start to Q2, with Romain getting in a clean lap before the rain started and Pastor falling just short of the time required to enter the top ten session. [Read More!]

MALAYSIAN GP: QUALIFYING


March 28, 2015
Exciting Qualifying session, today in Sepang. Here our team and drivers' quotes...

Max Verstappen (STR10-03, Car 33)
Third Practice Session - Best lap: 1:40.989, pos. 9th, 18 laps
Qualifying - Best lap: (Q1) 1:40.793, (Q2) 1:41.430, (Q3) 1:51.981, pos. 6th
"I'm very happy, it was a good session this afternoon, especially Q3. In Q1 and Q2 I wasn't totally comfortable with the car, but we had a good end of Q2. I was smiling when it started to rain, because that's what I like. I'm Dutch so I'm used to driving in the wet, even though here it's a completely different story. P6 is a really a good position to start tomorrow's race. I'm really looking forward to it and even if we seem to struggle a bit in the longer runs, I'm not worried and hopefully we can score some points." [Read More!]

STEP BY STEP
Sepang International Circuit, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Saturday 28 March 2015
After a promising start to the weekend in yesterday’s free practice, we experienced a more challenging day at Sepang today. Will Stevens, whose pace had been within the 107% time throughout Friday’s running, suffered a fuel system problem in FP3, which we were unable to get on top of in time for qualifying and therefore he was unable to take part. Roberto completed two runs in Q1 and improved by over half a second from run to run, but his second lap was ultimately 0.4s shy of the 107% time. [Read More!]

Q1 was held in dry conditions, but in Q2 a tropical rain storm came, which meant the first laps were crucial. Marcus Ericsson put in a great performance and made it into Q3 with P10, while Felipe Nasr only missed out on Q2 by a narrow margin. He was 16th. [Read More!]

“Real progress is being made”
Sepang International Circuit, Saturday March 28
McLaren-Honda will start from 17th (Jenson Button) and 18th (Fernando Alonso) on the grid for tomorrow’s Malaysian Grand Prix.

Both drivers did two runs apiece in the opening Q1 session. Jenson continued to shave tenths off his lap-times throughout the session, eventually finishing with a 1m41.636s best. By contrast, Fernando proved immediately quick, setting his fastest time of the session on his first flying lap, but failing to improve after fitting fresh tyres and having another go. [Read More!]

Malaysian Grand Prix - Sepang, 28 March 2015


Kimi Raikkonen: “Today it was simply a bad time to go out, we should have been out earlier. I did try to pass Ericsson but he was there trying to do his job; it’s not an unlucky situation but it was a mistake. Tomorrow we’ll try to climb some positions, for sure we have the speed but we are quite far from the front and when you start in this position is not going to be an easy race. Obviously there is going to be more risk in the first corner, but we’ll try to make the best out of it tomorrow.” [Read More!]

“We’ve always gone pretty well in the wet and there are still some things we can improve, but fourth is a good result for the team. The second row is a good starting position and we should hopefully have some battles tomorrow. We’re behind Mercedes and Ferrari, but we are ahead of the Williams and the conditions were tricky, so that’s good, step by step we are improving and heading in the right direction. Tyre degradation will be high, so it will probably be a three-stop race tomorrow. If we can finish in the top four, that will be good. [Read More!]

Lewis Hamilton
Australia was a great way to start. To pick up where we left off last year was awesome. But if 2014 showed anything, it's that putting together a whole season is never easy. Winning the first race is just one small step in a long journey and I'm not reading anything into it. The next step is Malaysia and that's all I've been focusing on since we left Melbourne. I can't wait to get back out there and I can't wait to get to Sepang. It's a great circuit, a home race for PETRONAS and a country I really enjoy going to. The people are so welcoming and the support we had there as a team last year was amazing. Of course, the race itself is really tough with the heat and humidity. But I feel ready for anything right now and the aim is to repeat last year's performance. It took me eight attempts to win this race when I finally made it to the top step last year and I don't plan on waiting that long again... [Read More!]

Kuala Lumpur’s Sepang International Circuit was first in the spate of modern tracks in emerging markets for Formula One. The likes of Bahrain, China, Singapore, South Korea and India would later follow, but Hermann Tilke’s first foray into Asia set a new standard and lay pressure to modernise on the historic European circuits. One feature the more traditional venues could not apply is the tropical Malaysian climate, which has unleashed spectacular downpours on Formula One sessions over the last 15 years. Williams’ only victory at Sepang came in 2002 with Ralf Schumacher leading home teammate Juan Pablo Montoya in a 1-2. [Read More!]

We finished the race and got some points which was positive, and there are things we can learn; I think on paper sixth was the best for us today. It was a shame for Dany, I feel for him I hope we have a smoother weekend in Malaysia. In terms of where we need to improve, the main issue is the drivability and the power, there are pretty big chunks that we know we need to find there. Beyond that it’s hard, as with the chassis itself I don’t think we’ve really been able to test it to its limits yet due to the other issues we’ve had. We’ve got a lot of work to do, but we have got a lot of information from this weekend which will help us ahead of Malaysia.” [Read More!]

The drivability has been tricky; we suffered a bit this time last year, but there are a few more issues this year which weren’t expected, but it’s how it is and we need to try and sort it out.

AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX – MELBOURNE, 13TH MARCH 2015


Kimi Raikkonen: “It was a typical Friday of free practice. In the first session I could not drive very well and it was difficult to put a good lap together. So, for the second session, we made some changes to the car before the long-runs and, in the end, the feeling was better. Now if we can put everything together and find a good lap, we should be OK. It was a positive day overall, and the feeling hasn’t changed since winter testing: I think the whole package has improved. On the other hand, it’s only Friday, and we know we still have a lot of work to do”. [Read More!]

Pre-season test three: Barcelona, Spain, February 26-March 1, 2015


“Barcelona represented the final opportunity for the teams to assess the interaction between our latest tyres and the 2015 cars, which as we have all noted appear to be significantly quicker than last year’s cars. We’ve seen a difference of up to two seconds, and that gap could be even bigger on the softer compounds. Because of this, the way that the tyres work with the cars has altered, which clearly has an effect on set-up and strategy. Although we had track temperatures that peaked at 31 degrees centigrade, conditions were still generally much cooler than we will typically see at most of the races, so this is another factor that has to be considered, particularly in the case of the hard tyre. The teams were able to test the entire range of 2015 P Zero tyres in Barcelona, which have a new rear construction this year, including the supersoft, which has a brand new compound as well. The soft compound set the fastest time of the test: two and a half seconds faster than last year’s pole time. Although there were some brief periods of rain, we only saw limited running on the intermediate tyre. Compared to last year though, it’s clear that most teams are already well-prepared for the season ahead.”
