SEPANG---Lewis Hamilton broke his
drought at Formula One s Malaysian
Grand Prix and led a one-two finish
for the Mercedes team yesterday.
Hamilton beat teammate Nico Ros-
berg by 17.3 seconds at the Sepang
International Circuit, with defending
world champion Sebastian Vettel of
Red Bull third.
It was the first one-two by the Mer-
cedes factory team since 1955, when
it was a dominant force in the embry-
onic days of F1.
Hamilton got away well from pole
position and led throughout, making
up for his retirement in the season-
opening race in Australia and belatedly
winning in Malaysia for the first time,
at his eighth attempt.
"Incredibly happy, my first win here
in my eighth year, so finally got that,"
Hamilton said. "To get a one-two is
quite special, I haven t had many in
The Briton was also quick to mention
the ill-fated Malaysian Airlines flight
MH370, which took off from the Kuala
Lumpur airport adjacent to the Sepang
track earlier this month and is thought
to have crashed, killing all 239 people
"After such a tragedy three weeks
ago, I would like to dedicate this win
to those people and their families,"
Ferrari s Fernando Alonso finished
fourth, ahead of Force India s Nico
Hulkenberg and McLaren s Jenson But-
ton, while Felipe Massa held on for
seventh ahead of Williams teammate
Valtteri Bottas despite being told by
his team to let Bottas through.
After the race, Massa insisted he had
done the right thing in ignoring team
orders, though there were likely to be
internal repercussions as Bottas was
adamant he could have passed But-

Hingis, a former No 1 player, but her
first since Doha in 2007. The final was
the first for the 33-year-old Hingis
since she came out of retirement last
year to play doubles.
Hingis also won Key Biscayne in 1998
and 1999 with Jana Novotna. She and

SEPANG---Williams driver Felipe
Massa is standing by his decision to
ignore team orders to let teammate
Valtteri Bottas pass him in the closing
stages of yesterday s Formula One
Malaysian Grand Prix, saying the
team should recognize he has his own
interests to pursue in the drivers
Massa was repeatedly told to let
Bottas past to enable the Finn to chase
the McLaren of Jenson Button, but
Massa refused to make way, and fin-
ished seventh and Bottas eighth, with
Button holding on for sixth.
"We have two championships,"
Massa said after the race. "I respect
my job, we need to respect each other.
"I don t think things will be different
or strange when I get back to the
garage. I m doing the best I can to help
the team and they need to do the same
as well." The incident evoked memories
of the 2010 German GP when Massa
was ordered to make way for then Fer-
rari teammate Fernando Alonso. Ferrari
was fined for issuing team orders,
which were banned at the time but
have since been approved. Massa has
since said that race was the lowest
point of his career, worse than the
2009 Hungarian Grand Prix when he
suffered a serious head injury.
It also recalled last year s Malaysian
GP when Red Bull s Sebastian Vettel
ignored team orders and passed Mark
Webber for the race win, causing a
major falling-out between the two
drivers. Bottas said: "There was a really
good chance for me to get Jenson, I
was charging really quickly but Massa
disagreed." "I was there, I was fighting,"
Massa said. "It s not like we were on
two completely different strategies. He
stopped just after me and his tires were
slightly better but not enough to pass
me and not enough to pass Jenson as

Hamilton leads Mercedes 1-2 at Malaysian GP
Ricciardo was in fourth place
with 15 laps to go when the team
failed to properly attach a wheel
during a pitstop, forcing him to
stop halfway down the pitlane and
be pushed back to have it replaced.
Soon after, the Australian lost his
front wing, got a stop-go penalty
for an unsafe release from the pit-
stop and then retired.
To make matters worse, the
unsafe release means he will also
get a 10-place grid penalty at next
weekend s race in Bahrain.
It was another tough day for
Ricciardo, who finished second in
his home race in Melbourne, only
to be disqualified after the team
was deemed to have exceeded the
fuel-flow limit on his car.
Raikkonen was hit from behind
by Magnussen on the opening lap,
causing a puncture, dropping him
to the back of the field. He finished
12th, behind Lotus Romain Gros-
jean who did well to make it to
the finish in his Lotus, which has
been beset by engine failures in
the early part of the season.
Rosberg s second place extended
his early lead in the drivers cham-
pionship to 18 points ahead of
Hamilton, and Mercedes already
has a sizeable lead atop the con-
structors championship, but the
German was wary about how
quickly Red Bull appears to be
"They were absolutely nowhere
(after preseason testing) and now
(Vettel) is right in the back of me,
pushing me," Rosberg said. "They
have ramped up their pace, very
very impressive, so we need to
keep on it to keep our advantage."
Vettel, who put a squeeze move
on Rosberg in the run to the first
corner that almost forced the Mer-
cedes into the pit wall, was com-
promised in his attempt to catch
the silver cars by high fuel con-
sumption, and in the end settled
for third place.
"We need to make quick steps
because they are quite far ahead
but I am happy with the steps we
are making," Vettel said. "It s still
a bloody good result to be finishing
right behind them on the podium,
and that is what we need to keep
