We catch up with F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel who made it two from two with another victory from pole, this time at the Malaysian Grand Prix. Sebastian was particularly happy to see his old BMW pal Nick Heidfeld taking third place on the podium...
'What an amazing day! I don't think I could be any happier right now! Everything was perfect, especially the start which was very important. The race itself was really tough and you had to stay focused the whole time.
The tyres played a decisive role in today's race because they degraded so quickly. You had to know exactly when and where to attack. But in the end we did pretty well.
'We don't have that much time to party given that the next race in China is just a week away'
KERS was also good but not perfect. We had to deactivate it from time to time but it luckily worked for the majority of the race. We will work out the variables in the next days and weeks.
For now I am really happy with the win, which we’ll celebrate tonight. But we don't have that much time to party given that the next race in China is just a week away. There’s not much time to rest.
But before I go, I have to say a few quick words about Nick Heidfeld: his third place was more deserved and it proves what happens when you write someone off too soon. My former BMW colleague did an amazing job and I am sure he also feels like a winner today.'
