Strategists Reno, probably waiting for the beginning of the rain, so detained their riders on the track, which further led to the loss of positions, because the rules in the end were those who had dropped in for a fresh set of tires. Problems with wear rubber re-emerged from Mark Webber, which completely ruined the start and was forced to go the distance to stop in the pits four times. Zheskie kit also summarized and Lewis Hamilton, who had to make an unscheduled pit stop for a few laps before the finish, which is why he only finished the race seventh. But Hamilton’s team-mate – Jenson Button was able to redeem for Australia: Malaysia Briton finished second, and third place to attack Webber could still protect Nick Heidfeld, Renault brought the team the hundredth podium in its history. Alas, the gathering ended with the Grand Prix of Malaysia for Vitaly Petrov. The landing was so hard that the car broke Petrova steering.
