MALAYSIAN Grand Prix 2015 - Sepang International Circuit

Sebastian Vettel ­

Grazia a tuti la scuderia. Oggi ho fatto una grande gara.

Thanks a lot . Today is really a special day.

This is my first win since 2013 and my first win for Ferrai. I am extremely proud. I do not know what to say. But to see all my mechanics after the race was something. I do not know what to say. The team has opened their arms to me. It is the most important that I did not disappoint them. Today what is so important is that I did what I did and won.All the best to the entire people who are at home .

My little girl and all the rest of my family. Today was a great race. I am really happy to have made it happen. It has been a while I have not been on the top step. My first time with the team . The fans are fantastic. It is a great athmosphere. I am very happy. A great care. A lot of positive.

Four times winning Mlaysia is fantastic. It is a very special day and will always remain part of me. Thanks to the fans. Thanks you to all

2013 was my last win. I am speech less. Last year was not a good year. We had a great car but I could not score a lot.

Now this car is fantastic. I think it is incredible. The race is spot on . We beat the team Mercedes. It is great.

It was a great decision to leave the team and I feel it is possible to win the championship. This is my mission. I will bring the championship back to maranello. It is a long way ahead of us.

I want to win and celebrate today.

Ferrari is back today.

It just feels incredible. The atmosphere is incredible. Similar is the win from Fernando or from Schumacher.

Last year was tough. This is the first win since over a year. I missed not only the champagne, but the win. The car suits me. It was in my way.

The last time there was a national Italian anthem was in 2008 in Monza. It is true. I am very emotional today. Just like I was at the time. I have been my entire life with Red Bull.

Celebrating in Monza was unique and celebrating with  Red Bull in China was also unique.

When I grew up Michael was my heroe. We were looking up to Michael Schumacher and when he appeared to help us and advise us... I do not understand how special it is today. I am happy and proud to beat these guys who have been phenomenally strong. To be where we are is an incredible achievement.

I hope to be able to win as much as Michael Schumacher. His car in 96 was not as good as ours this year. Both drivers...dream to come as close as he was from the wins. The target is to win indeed.

The strategy was fantastic. Big compliments to the guys. Lewis was struggling in the first stint. We tried to make the tire last. The second sting it was tough. I was able to have a solid race. I was looking at the top of the chassis and I was thinking I was about to win. It was a great relief when I crossed the line. The chequered flag was a great relief. We have done a massive step over the winter. Well done and great .

I hoped I left enough space for Nico Rosberg and I did.

I am sure that Mercedes will come back and they are strong competitors. I have nothing to prove.

I hope I can be successful. Everyone is free to thi  nk we could be struggling more The secret of the changes is not only money. We were hoping to be where we are since Melbourne. We had a good feeling since the first test and today the key was to look after our tires. This is where we could close the gap compared to Mercedes.

There is fresh wind and lots of new people. So far the atmosphere is great. Everyone is happy to do their job and very passionate. The most important is to confirm the new form of the team to continue catch these guys.

I have three wins in Shanghai.

We have lots of fans there including Kimi. We are looking forward to win there. China is a crazy track and creadyy We did not struggle as much as we thought we would with the heat. The next race is unique and China is a unique track. Mercedes were struggling with hot conditions. Usually however, it is Mercedes who set the pace. Today Ferrari was able to capitalize on the race. But next stage we will see you kit goes .

I dedicate the win to the team. I was amazed by the manpower in Maranello, the number of people working in the race team. I dedicate this win to all the people there in Maranello. It is incredible. I dedicate to the team in Maranello.

Lewis Hamilton. P2

Congratulations to Ferrari. Amazing job. We did the best possible as a team. A great step for the team. But Ferrari was too fast.

We get back together as a team and see where we have been loosing time.

In general the team did a fantastic job. The fans have been fantastic.

The race would have been winnable. But Ferrari did a great job. They were just superior and we were not half as quick as they were.

A fourth stop in that race would have been impossible. If I had done another stop would have been difficult.

I should have run a set of medium soft. I was struggling all day today with the balance. There was a lot of understeer. I was doing everything I could but could not find a good balance. The car was good. I thought I would be going on other tires. But I did the best I could. We will analyse and improve next time.

Going to China is my favorite race. The fans know you are there. The fans are everywhere where we are. It is amazing. I had some good races there.

My assumpution this week-end is that the heat got us and I hope that tnext race we will be there.

Nico Rosberg P3

Nico another podium. I am very pleased. Most amazing day for this titanic battle. I dont know about the tire strategy. Ferrari deserves to race. But we will be back in China a great track for me and we will beat Vettel there.

The fight will continue and we will be back Sebastian Vettel has made a fantastic job. But it is a battle and we will reply and get back to them. They have won this race, but we will get them next race. I lost in qualifying. This is where it all started. I also lost the battle again Hamilton. At least we are getting some good points and it continues and goes on. What a prospect.

It was the plan to come in if there had a safety car. But we did not expect that many people to box in. The pitstop was wide, But it did cost a lot of time. I tried to fight back but I lost a lot. Happy I got close to Lewis but not enough to fight back We underestimated the pitstop. We had planned but we thought it was too risky.
It costs me a lot of time

I closed my eyes at the start and prayed that he left enough space and he did. He squeezed me again other wise I would have touched him. It was a bit like last year....

We are going to fight back later in China and the rest of the season.
