He completed the lap in 1:27.211. The speeds increased as the day went on and fresh rubber made the track more driveable.

The Red Bull RB9, designed by £10m-a-year Adrian Newey, looks like it could be as dominant as its predecessors. But with Mark Webber’s contract ending this season, Christian Horner does not want Lewis Hamilton to replace him. He said: “Lewis is a fantastically quick driver and he has expressed interest in driving for the team in the past. But it wouldn’t have been right for the team. I have great admiration for the talent he has but I don’t think Lewis and Sebastian would be the right combination.” Related Articles // More Like This dummySebastian Vettel becomes sixth most successful Formula One racing driver of all time, as controversy over Malaysia win continues The podium at the Malaysian Grand Prix was arguably the glummest and perhaps the most embarrassing since Michael Schumacher’s controversial win in Austria in 2002.It has drawn dissimilar comparisonsdummySebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing could destroy Formula One with increasingly ‘unhealthy’ dominance Sebastian Vettel and his team Red Bull are setting a predictable trend of winning races and dominating Saturday afternoons by claiming pole position – too often.But Red Bull Racing’s Christian HornedummyAdrian Newey and Christian Horner receive gigantic hug from Sebastian Vettel after he wins fourth F1 World Championship With three races left of a 19-round 2013 Formula One season, Infiniti Red Bull Racing have sealed the double, becoming consecutive four-time Constructors' World Champions and claiming the Drivers'' 123     « Previous ArticleNext Article » Subscribe to MotorTrades insight As featured on NewsNow: Motoring news News 24/7 MotorTrades Insight are now official news providers for NewsNow.
