Lewis Hamilton teases Formula One fans over future with social media post

Lewis Hamilton teases Formula One fans over future with social media post

Hamilton had been off the pace all weekend in practice but his Mercedes stormed back in qualifying to set a lap record of 1min 30.076sec, a whisker ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.

Hamilton gave up third place in Hungary in July to let Bottas pass him, as a return favor after Bottas had earlier let Hamilton overtake him in order to chase down the Ferraris of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, who finished 1-2. "The key area we are going to need to focus on tonight will be getting the maximum out of the tyres over one lap".

A record four-time victor in Malaysia, Vettel desperately needs a fifth victory after his title hopes were dealt a severe blow at the last race in Singapore, where the German crashed out on the opening lap to clear the way for Hamilton to win. Nor for the Malaysians themselves because of the troubled financial situation here, or Liberty Media, who do not regard it as the sort of race they really want on the calendar. "I've been struggling with the auto today, so we have to review and try to understand where we have gone wrong with the balance", said Hamilton.

"I'm very grateful. It's always a special thing to be able to extract a little bit more out of the auto than it's particularly willing to go. I'm sorry for what happened to Sebastian and it is a real surprise to be up here with these guys", Hamilton said.

"I didn't sleep very well, just like all my engineers as well, because we didn't know whether we would fix the issue or not".

Hamilton, who retired from a dominant lead with a blown engine in Malaysia past year which eventually cost him the title, capitalised on Vettel's misfortune to take victory in Singapore.

Former army officer elected Ukip leader
Henry Bolton , a former soldier and police officer, won UKIP's seven-person leadership election with 30 percent of the vote. UKIP's finances are shaky, with some party staff working on reduced salaries in order to keep the organisation functioning.

"It's been a decent day", Vettel told Sky TV. "But there wasn't really enough time so we had to stay with it and it's also a risk changing the vehicle again". "I've just got to make sure I keep performing as I have been".

"Certainly all three of us would have loved to have a different race - championship yes or no - but first we want to race and that's what we set out to do in Singapore, unfortunately all three of us didn't get very far". "You are never going to make the flawless lap but it's a bit more painful when you get so close".

Lewis Hamilton once again made the difference for Mercedes as the Briton celebrated his 70th career Formula One pole in Malaysia on Saturday.

Now the hunter rather than the hunted in the championship race, Vettel doesn't feel under any less pressure to produce results, choosing to focus on each of the six remaining Grands Prix one at a time.

Max Verstappen split Raikkonen and Hamilton in Q2, but fell back in Q3, ending up third fastest, nearly half a second away from pole. Bottas was followed by Force India's Esteban Ocon, McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne, the Renault of Nico Hulkbenberg, the second Force India of Sergio Perez and the second McLaren of Alonso rounding out the top 10.
