He ended up racing way from everyone and left the rest of the field for dead. Fernando Alonso kept pace but he was forced to pit, gifting Vettel a 30-second gap over him. This gives Vettel his ninth win in a row.
2015 MALAYSIAN GRAND PRIX
Starting second once more and against hot favourites Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes team. Sebastian Vettel pulled off one of his most favorite victories on the Sepang circuit. He stuck close to Hamilton at the start of the race, but because of the heat, the tyres on the Mercedes struggled and had to be changed. Vettel kept going and made only two stops against Mercedes’s three stops. This strategy won the day for Vettel and Ferrari.
