Malaysian Grand Prix: Sebastian Vettel fastest in shortened practice

Red Bull Dominates First Practice Session at Malaysia GP Formula One losing its toughest race, says Hamilton

"I was like, 's**t!'" said Hamilton. "It's about winning races and winning the championship". In Singapore he crashed out on the opening lap after having started from pole, leaving the way clear for Hamilton to win from fifth.

Vettel will start from last in the latest bitter blow for Ferrari.

He spent the rest of the session in the pits and will now start from last place on Sunday, facing an uphill battle to close the gap on Mercedes driver Hamilton.

The Briton posted a lap time of 1 minute 30.076 seconds, edging Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen by a narrow margin of 0.045 seconds. Max Verstappen was third. Everyone but Raikkonen and Verstappen were out doing their flying laps.

"It's part of motor racing", Vettel told Sky F1.

"I hope also that our worst circuits are behind us, like the slow speed, high downforce ones".

"I want to make sure we achieve our best, whatever that means, so we need to extract the maximum, but knowing the race here and the conditions it could be anything". It was a miracle and the guys were awesome. "It's a shame that we couldn't get out". Ferrari are strong, Mercedes are a bit odd for now but I'm sure they'll get quicker tomorrow so we need to improve.

Only six races remain in the 2017 season with Lewis Hamilton sitting comfortably at the top of the standings.

"We didn't get all the test items tested today, but I think that is going to be the case with all the teams".

"I'm sorry for what happened to Sebastian but somehow we managed to turn it around and it is a real surprise to be up here with these guys".

"I really didn't think our auto was well suited to the track, but Lewis' problem opened the door and then I held off Max in the closing stages to take the win". "We were quite happy all day in qualifying but we can always improve".

"I know the ambitions of the team, but it is not like I am going into this weekend thinking that I will go out on the track helping Lewis".

Vettel, who had looked a strong favourite for pole before his problems, said: "We have a very quick auto so we should be able to make up a lot of ground".

"I don't really know where the pole lap came from, I surprised myself", admitted Hamilton. We have more tires than everybody else, we can maybe do something with strategy and then if the Safety Car comes out at a time that suits you, you might come back and you never know what's possible.

Hamilton was over a second off the front-running pace at the end of Friday practice and says to land pole position came as a welcomed present coupled with Vettel's engine issue which sees him start 20 in Malaysia.
