Lewis Hamilton on pole as Sebastian Vettel starts at back in Malaysia

"I would have loved to be on third today, but that half a tenth was actually Max's birthday gift from me and I wanted to start on fourth really, because that's where I started previous year and I won".

"I'm sorry what happened to Sebastian but we somehow turned it around, it is a real surprise to be up here with these guys".

"Today we arrived and the auto was much better but still it looked like Ferrari was a little bit ahead, so some big calls to make ahead of qualifying".

Hamilton's ninth pole this season and fifth in Malaysia also leaves him ideally placed to make another huge stride towards a fourth title, with Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel having to line up last on Sunday after failing to set a time.

With Vettel at the back of the field, Raikkonen will lead Ferrari's charge after missing out on pole by a mere 0.045 seconds.

Ex-Formula 1 driver Felipe Nasr says he wants to get back to racing next season.The former Sauber driver contested two seasons with the Swiss team until the end of past year, when his backer Banco do.

Vettel had surprisingly held the upper hand over Hamilton throughout practice but suffered an issue in the final session and required a new engine.

"I did all I could today and I think we both got the most out of the vehicle", Ricciardo said.

"The race is tomorrow not today". We've saved some tyres so that's a positive but it's a very bad day. It happened, there's not much you can do, and therefore not much point in trying to look at it again and again. But when it was moved previous year to two weeks after Singapore, a growing problem became a crisis.

Ferrari's Friday display and Mercedes' struggles will be welcomed by Vettel who trails Hamilton by 28 points in the overall standings with six races left.

"Even if we got the greatest of deals - do it for free for example - what's the product?"

Azlan said the Malaysia Grand Prix had always attracted strong support from motoring fans in Asia. "I don't know whether he feels pressure". You always find some things to improve but the auto has behaved nicely all weekend.

The drain cover was loosened by Bottas' Mercedes, which went through the corner shortly before Grosjean.

Raikkonen became 5/2 second favourite after qualifying with Verstappen available at 8/1 for the win.

Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo are complementing each other extremely well and as Ricciardo has quoted, Max brings out the best in him.

The Australian sensed an opportunity on Sunday. "Yesterday's interruptions mean nobody really has a clear understanding of the long run pace, but I think we can come away with a strong result". Over the course of qualifying he managed to lower that to a new track record of 1:30.067 and in the process took his eighth pole position of the season.
