Malaysian GP qualifying



Here's how the grid will line up for tomorrow's Malaysian GP! After a rain hit qualifying session, Sebastian Vettel will be the first Ferrari driver to start on the front row since Malaysia 2013, and an added bonus is he splits the Mercedes drivers. Life can be cruel in Formula One, at least for Vettel! He fell short of pole by 0.076s! The other big surprise comes from the Red Bull garage; both their drivers occupying row 2 and 3 of the grid. It does make me question, did Red Bull overreact on their retirement from Melbourne? But, ties are definitely breaking between Renault and Red Bull after Cyril Abiteboul and Adrian Newey blame each other of incompetence in public!  On the other hand, there is one other team which is relatively happier with their qualification in P17 and P18 - McLaren Honda. Both their drivers said the car performed much better this Saturday despite their back row start for the 2nd time this season, which makes it a 2/2. And to end this eventful qualifying, a big applause to Max Verstappen in the Toro Rosso! Who knew Toro Rosso weren't joking when they signed the 17 year old? Great control for a worthy P6.
