Sepang, 29th March 2015

For Scuderia Ferrari, today’s win is the 222nd, the first since the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix, while Sebastian Vettel is now on 40 wins.

Maurizio Arrivabene: “This is no one-man win: it’s a success for the whole team, which has been working impeccably at all levels. Seb was just unbelievable today, and Kimi was able to put on a fantastic charge from the back. The whole team has showed a great deal of discipline, just like a Swiss watch-or should I say, an Italian one! Today, the whole team gave me great emotions and I wish to thank everybody, including the women and men back Read more of this post

Romain Grosjean finished just shy of the points whilst Pastor Maldonado had to retire from a promising but ultimately rather frustrating Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang International Circuit. Romain ran as high as third during the race, but later traffic and an induced 360° spin meant a P11 finish. Pastor suffered from a first lap puncture then had to retire nine laps from the chequered flag due Read more of this post

“I really enjoyed that! I’m very happy to have scored my first ever points in F1 and to end seventh! I think we did a great job as a team. The first few laps were a bit tricky for me as I was struggling a lot on the Medium tyres, so we boxed early for the Hard ones and that worked perfectly, the car felt great. We had a few good fights with other competitors and it was good fun. This was the right Read more of this post
