No point dwelling on Singapore crash - Vettel


Kuala Lumpur: Mercedes AMG Petronas drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas pledged their fans outstanding results at the finale of the Petronas Malaysian Formula One (F1) Grand Prix to be held at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) from Sept 28 to Oct 1. I really love it.

Ricciardo has been looking particularly strong, with his second-place finish in Singapore earning him a seventh podium position in the past 10 races. "All three of us weren't happy but you move on".

Vettel was involved in a first-corner crash with Ferrari colleague Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull's Max Verstappen last time out, bringing an abrupt end to the race of all three.

Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene vowed to keep the pressure on Mercedes.

Red Bull cashed in on Hamilton's misfortune past year.

Vettel said he "moved on" within two days of the incident.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix, Hamilton said he had no issue airing his personal views in public.

"It doesn't mean that the battle is all over, just that it has become more hard".

"My victory previous year was definitely unexpected", said Ricciardo this week.

Despite the uncomfortable conditions the drivers are placed in because of the climate, Hamilton says he always enjoy the endurance test the race presents and is disappointed he will not be returning to the Far East nation next year.

Just the way that exchange happened and the tones of voice used by both driver and engineer show what a great relationship these 2 guys have, it's really not something you see too often in F1.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said then that declining ticket sales, viewership and tourism were behind the decision.

The vast stands at the Sepang circuit, which can accommodate 120,000, drew just 45,000 in 2016 and TV ratings were poor.

The government, he said, was forking out $67 million annually to stage the race.

"I don't look at it that way", he said.

"At the end of the day, hosting Formula One is about promoting the country as a global destination and if the numbers are not there, the investment is not justified".

"I guess we all have a role to play to make a difference in the world".

Fernando Alonso will be able to re-use the engine fitted for the Singapore Grand Prix after no terminal damage was found following the chaotic start.
