Nico Rosberg is lucky that Mercedes built him a tank that went through the 2016 Malaysian Grand Prix undamaged. Rosberg was lucky on multiple other counts too, including that he had a clean getaway [Mercedes can’t take that for granted anymore] and the two VSC periods that helped him climb back up the order.
Daniel Ricciardo had a great result to win the race, but will drivers not want to be on the podium with Ricciardo though, given his love for the ‘shoey’? Mark Webber was smart, he threw away Ricciardo’s shoe – the other podium victims need to learn from him.
Given how much the FIA loves clamping down on everything that’s fun in F1, maybe they will ban the shoey on the podium too? A BIG thank you to Red Bull Racing for allowing Ricciardo and Verstappen to race fair and square.
Lewis Hamilton made the race interesting – not sure if it was thanks to his engine failure, post-race comments or both. Hamilton believes that ‘something or someone doesn’t want him to win this year’ – and he’s right. We tell you who this person in the Mercedes garage is, who has been mercilessly trying to keep Hamilton from winning.
