Max Verstappen sets pace in first practice at Malaysian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen sets pace in first practice at Malaysian Grand Prix”

The lights went off, obviously, we did our starts, everyone was trying to move at the start and it was the way it happened.

"Even if the auto may not be in its best shape at every circuit, it doesn't not mean we have to write-off the weekend".

Ricciardo, who led Verstappen in a Red Bull one-two in last year's grand prix and was the first to get a time on the board on Friday, finished 0.757 seconds slower than his team mate. First of all it's done, and second I think it was pretty unfortunate for all three of us so we want to move on. If there is something that you need to change to react quickly and make sure it doesn't happen again then maybe it is a different story, but looking at it now there has been one race where we didn't finish, and certainly it didn't help that it was the one race where Lewis scored a lot of points, but that's the way it goes.

Antonio Giovinazzi, another Ferrari-backed prospect, took over Romain Grosjean's auto at Haas, and the Italian, who stood in for an injured Wehrlein at Sauber for the opening two races of the season, finished 19th.

On April 7, Prime Minister Najib Razak said that the cabinet had agreed that this year's race would be the last, citing rising costs and falling ticket sales. I could continue for a little bit more but the damage was so bad I had to stop anyway. You are not hoping for it to happen again, but it is part of racing and these things happen.

"I don't think it's necessary to discuss", Vettel said in Thursday press conference, the first time since the Singapore TV pen interviews that he had faced the media since.

Red Bull has been improving in recent weeks and looked strong in Singapore qualifying, placing both cars ahead of Hamilton and Bottas. There's not much you can do and therefore not much point in trying to look at it again and again.

The three drivers involved in the Singapore start crash were all placed under investigation by the race stewards but none were judged to be directly at fault, while Verstappen pointed the finger of blame at Vettel for cutting across him starting from pole position.
