Vettel puts Singapore crash behind him to focus on Malaysia

01 Octobre 2017

Ferrari does not have the quickest vehicle at most circuits, despite what Hamilton often claims, and Vettel knew he needed to absolutely maximise his result at a place where Ferrari was unquestionably strong, and Mercedes particularly weak.

"We will see, I have a lot of races left and I'm not too fussed about the amount of points".

"As for Japan - it is a very special race for me, as I lived and raced there in 2009". I could continue for a little bit more but the damage was so bad I had to stop anyway.

"You can look at Singapore again and again and it doesn't matter". If degradation turns out to be high, might we see one of these guys take a gamble on one stop? Our two drivers are among the fittest on the grid, so I've no doubt they'll approach the weekend fully prepared as usual. As ever, reliability will be key in these tough conditions, as points are only ever possible with a reliable vehicle, as will avoiding any first-lap chaos, which is always easier said than done.

The undulating 5.5-kilometer (3.4-mile) track - a mixture of long straights and quick, sweeping corners - is also one of the most challenging, and enjoyable, for drivers. "Obviously it's never good to be behind, I'd like to be in front but we're not so I'm not thinking about that", he added.

"Certainly all three of us would have loved to have a different race - championship yes or no - but first we want to race and that's what we set out to do in Singapore, unfortunately all three of us didn't get very far".

He defied the Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage and previously called Islam a "false religion". On Tuesday, Moore won a Republican primary to run for an open seat representing Alabama in the U.S.

"Last time out in Singapore we had mixed fortunes".

"What makes it easier is that you've got longer straights to help you recover and get some wind on your body", said Magnussen. Despite it being a power-hungry track, the changeable conditions mean anything can happen, so hopefully if we prepare well we can capitalise on any opportunities that come our way and break into the points.

Although the current contract at the Sepang circuit wasn't due to expire until next season, the Malaysian Government has already announced that this will be the last race there due to declining ticket sales, viewers and tourism.

Malaysia has had a long and fruitful association with Formula 1. The Sepang International Circuit is more than 60 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur, making the job of attracting a local audience hard.

Turn one is obviously a big spot for an overtake, and the quick change of direction into the narrower turn two provides a lot of different angles of attack for drivers as well as the chance to come back at an overtaking vehicle as well.
