With a stroke of luck, Lewis Hamilton extended his lead in the Formula 1 rankings at the Singapore Grand Prix earlier this month, despite finishing 5th in qualifying. A first corner collision between closest rival Sebastien Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and Max Verstappen ruled the drivers out of contention, and Hamilton raced to a 28 point lead in the overall standings.
However, this Sunday’s Grand Prix at Sepang International Circuit – the last at the course for the foreseeable future – presents Vettel’s Ferrari team with an opportunity to make some ground back: Hamilton admitted that he is having troubles with his car after a disappointing session on Friday, and his rivals will hope to capitalise on that on a wet course on Sunday.
