Vettel delight at Ferrari show

formula one

Sebastian Vettel secured victory for Ferrari at the Malaysian Grand Prix yesterday in only his second race for the Italian after a frustrating final year at Red Bull in 2014.

The four-time champion (pictured) finished 8.5 seconds clear of 2014 championship winner Lewis Hamilton, whose Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg was a further four seconds back.

Vettel was reduced to tears as the German and Italian anthems played and he later said: "This feels incredible."

Vettel's team-mate Kimi Raikkonen finished fourth, with Williams duo Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa taking fifth and sixth.
