Ferrari to change engine of Vettel's auto as precautionary measure

Red Bull's Dutch driver Max Verstappen celebrates on the podium after winning the Malaysian Formula One Grand Prix in Sepang

Kimi Raikkonen admitted to feeling disappointed after narrowly missing out on his second Formula 1 pole position of the season in Malaysia, falling 0.045 seconds short of Lewis Hamilton in the final stage of qualifying.

Romain Grosjean triggered the late suspension after a high-speed smash between turns 13 and 14.

"It was interesting in these conditions but it was actually nice to get these runs in the wet and dry today.This afternoon, we weren't that competitive looking at Ferrari, but it looked like Mercedes struggled aswell".

Hamilton's time was good enough for sixth place, one ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas, and both Mercedes drivers complained of a lack of grip all afternoon.

"If you look at the last two races, we're not happy and we're not proud of them". I have very little power.

He was exonerated from blame for the Singapore crash by stewards, but many observers felt the four-time world champion was at fault as he had forced Verstappen towards Raikkonen.

"It's been a decent day", said Vettel.

Raikkonen, who was behind Vettel in a Ferrari one-two during Friday practice, reversed the finishing positions when he set a time of one minute, 31.880 seconds around the Sepang Circuit. "The session was immediately red flagged, cutting running time by 20 minutes and depriving the teams of more track time after wet weather caused a delayed start to the opening practice session in the morning", read a report published on ESPN F1. "I made some mistakes on a new set of tyres but apart from that it was a pretty straightforward day".

"We can all play a role in trying to make a difference in the world", Hamilton said. "It's a shame I couldn't get it where it belonged for them".

Best one-liner: With Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen starting second and third on Sunday's grid, ex-F1 driver Johnny Herbert couldn't resist bringing up their Singapore collision during the post-qualifying interviews.

"If we can focus on ourselves, we can still improve". "Then we basically didn't race". We are close but we're not quite there.

The weather improved enough for the session to take place, though it was of little surprise when Vettel and Sauber's Pascal Wehrlein slid and spun off the track in the hard conditions. The race begins at 8am on Sunday, October 1.
