Hamilton’s intentions to cut points were ruined with a poor start that forced him to pick up. Max Verstappen was 2nd with Red Bull. Bad day for the Spanish pilots Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz 17º 16º without chance of reaching the points.
Hamilton came out very badly and that conditioned the race. The English put into action was very slow and went from second to eighth place in just a few meters. Rosberg held the first position and its wake of the cars stood Ferrari and Red Bull that controlled quite well throughout the race.
A Hamilton he had to overcome and it took a lot during the first few laps. From the second stint and with the help of the strategy could go beating pilots Force India, Ferrari and Red Bull to reach the third position. Meanwhile Rosberg had a race without mistakes and not feel pressure from Hamilton to think he played Verstappen.
The Dutch driver again made a great career that allowed him to get the second position after fending off Hamilton in the last laps. The English tried but everything was decided just two laps to the end when Hamilton, in one of his attempts, went along a curve blaming the Dutch because it seemed that he had changed his career to defend his position.
Ricciardo was not such a good career in Sepang and was sixth behind Ferrari drivers and burdened by a bad pit stop. The points the completed Perez, Hulkenberg, Massa and Bottas .
Carlos Sainz Jr. was 17th and described the race as a disaster. In the initial part, it became 14th but after passing through the pit out in traffic and could not overtake because such was ahead of Fernando Alonso who put things very difficult to overtake. Perhaps it was one of the few moments when the Spaniard who sported finished 16th and very disappointed with the performance of his McLaren-Honda was very slow throughout the weekend.
