Malaysia 2013 - Rate the race // Rate the tense and unpredictable race at Sepang

Published by Christine

It was a race weekend we thought would be dominated by rain, but in fact, the action was overshadowed by all the drama within teams. Team orders, now legal, have caused friction on many an occasion, but behind all that, there was some great racing to behold - overtaking moves aplenty, changes of leader, and several incidents throughout.

As mentioned above, the team orders situation became apparent at not one, but two teams this weekend. Mercedes and Red Bull both had to fight their drivers over the radio, to very different conclusions.

As well as the relationship drama, there were also a lot of good drives throughout the field. Where would you place your driver of the day vote, those who managed their tyres well, those who fought for position on track, or someone else?

Finally, a couple of items on the management of the weekend - from the FIA's insistence of including double DRS wherever possible, to the apparent lack of interest from stewards. They'll claim they have more information than we do, but I certainly saw a few things that could have done with investigating!
