F1 2015 - Malaysian GP

A major surprise occurred during the Malaysian GP of the F1 2015 season and that surprise is that even though Sebastian Vettel transferred to the Scuderia Ferrari team, his win will put both the Mercedes F1 drivers on the line. His first win for the season marks Ferrari's first win since 2013. Mercedes' Hamilton left in 2nd place while Rosberg placed 3rd. Looks like the former world champion is seeking revenge against last year's world champion after all.

Next race is at China on the 12th of April.
