Malaysian Grand Prix – Seb fights back, Kimi left disappointed

Vettel goes from last to 4th. Raikkonen unable to exploit front row start.

Sebastian Vettel went from last on the grid to fourth at the flag. It was a performance that confirmed just how competitive was the Ferrari package today. However, Kimi Raikkonen didn’t get the chance to confirm that. He lined up on the front row of the grid, but the warning signs had been there on his lap out of the garage and a problem on his SF70H meant he was unable to take the start.

Seb made a good start and fought his way up the order, passing cars all the way to fifth place. He had taken the start on the harder Soft tyres and, at half-distance, pitted to take on the Supersofts. With these, he then proceeded to put in a series of fast laps which meant he closed right up on third placed Ricciardo.
However, he lost some ground when he was slowed by a backmarker and from then on, he managed his lead over Bottas, crossing the line with 12 points in the bag; something that had seemed inconceivable at the start.
