Lewis Hamilton on pole, Vettel last at Malaysian GP

Lewis Hamilton on pole, Vettel last at Malaysian GP”

Lewis Hamilton snatched his 70th career pole position in Malaysia on Saturday - his fourth consecutive pole at the circuit - as he narrowly beat Ferrari's Kimi Räikkönen by just 0.045 seconds.

In Singapore, Vettel had started from pole only to crash on a rain-soaked first lap as Lewis Hamilton won from fifth on the grid to extend his championship lead.

The Mercedes driver, who now heads the championship by 28 points to Sebastian Vettel, will be looking to further extend his advantage as Vettel's title chances took a major blow during the opening qualifying segment.

"It's part of motor racing so..."

Vettel's engine appeared to stutter as he said over the team radio that he suspected he had lost his turbo, and he drove back to the pits slowly.

"For sure it's not ideal, not what you want especially on a day where you feel you've got it in you, got it in the auto", he said.

"Even though it's a pretty bad day, the race is tomorrow". The 30-year-old Ferrari driver, who is Hamilton's title rival this season, was forced to withdraw in the Q1.

Hamilton will not have to win another race if he triumphs on Sunday and Vettel finishes lower than second.

"We thought we would be late, but we made it, so the guys did a miracle today".

"I'm sorry for what happened to Sebastian because obviously he was very quick through practice but somehow we turned it round". We have a very quick auto and we saved some tyres.

Hamilton's team-mate Valtteri Bottas is fifth ahead of Esteban Ocon's Force India while Stoffel Vandoorne was seventh for McLaren.

Frenchman Pierre Gasly, drafted in as a last-minute replacement for under-performing Russian Daniil Kvyat at Toro Rosso, will make his Formula One debut from 15th on the grid.
