Listen unbridled happiness and frustrations over team radio



Listen unbridled happiness and frustrations over Malaysian Grand Prix team radio.

Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton believes Mercedes’ poor tyre strategy was the main reason in his failure to beat Sebastian Vettel and win the Malaysian GP.

Victory falling away following final pit stop and taking on the wrong tyres Hamilton could not hide his frustration.

With 15 laps left and the Vettel storming away at the head of the field his radio crackled into life, as he was included in a pit wall communication between engineers.

“This is the wrong tyre man,” Hamilton raged.

But his engineer said they had no choice. “The other was well used,” he said.

“I can hear you,” he said in frustration.

When his engineer apologised he fired back: “I don’t know what I am supposed to be doing”

Then his radio crackled into life again: “Lewis you are scheduled to catch Vettel with five laps remaining.”

But he angrily snapped: “Don’t talk to me through the corners. I nearly went off.”

Victory for Sebastian Vettel makes him the most successful driver in Malaysian GP history with four wins, surpassing Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso.

Victory lap radio: “Woooooohoooo!” screams Sebastian Vettel. “Grazie! Grazie! Grazie!”

Pure unbridled joy over the Ferrari team radio. “Yes, yes, yes, yes. Great drive, great drive. Ferrari is back, fantastico!” an Italian voice tells Sebastian Vettel.
