F1 – Malaysian GP – Race

Hello MiniFans!

The Malaysian GP is over and the championship is on fire… Specially for Lewis Hamilton who couldn’t finish the race. After a problem at the start for Nico Rosberg the championship changed so much. Want to know what happened? Keep reading!

At the start Vettel crashed with Rosberg. The Ferrari driver had to retire while the Mercedes one had to recover all the positions. Sergio Pérez made a great start and was on third position, but after the virtual safety car was gone, the mexican driver lost the positions with Verstappen and Kimi.

Fernando Alonso who started on last position, was recovering a lot of positions and was fighting for the top ten fighting with Carlos Sainz and after that with Romain Grosjean, who spun after the overtake of the spanish driver and had to retire.

Rosberg was making his comeback overtaking Nasr and Button, but after that he overtook Palmer and   entering the points.

On front Verstappen was faster than Kimi and tried to overtake him, but the finnish driver entered to boxes, but after that he found Rosberg, who overtook him after making contact with the Ferrari driver, causing a 10 second penalty to Rosberg for the collision.

Talking about penalties, Ocono received two 5 seconds penalty for speeding on pitlane, maybe he still doesn’t know the maximum speed on pitlane.

On front Verstappen was attacking Ricciardo for the second position, but the change of the race arrived when we saw the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton on fire after blewing up his engine. Everyone was remembering the famous multi 21, but Red Bull left their drivers to race, but they respected each other and could finish the race with a 1-2 victory.

Just before the end of the race and after the problem of Lewis we saw Gutiérrez losing the front left tyre.


Victory for Daniel Ricciardo with Max Verstappen 2nd and Nico Rosberg who finished 3rd. The three drivers made a shoei at the podium and the top 10 was completed by Raikkonen, Bottas, Pérez, Alonso, Hulkenberg, Button and Palmer reaching his first points in F1.

Next race will be at the home of Honda, who will come with the new update of the engine. The Japanese GP will come really soon and we can’t wait to see what will happen between Mercedes. See you but remember… Be mini-good!
