Sebastian Vettel won a thrilling and controversial 2013 Malaysian Grand Prix, the second Formula 1 race of the season being enlivened both by rain and two intra-team battles between the Red Bull and Mercedes team-mates at the front of the field.
Pole-sitter Vettel led the race away in his Renault-powered Red Bull, but on the wet but drying track opted to stop early for slick tyres. That proved to be marginally the wrong decision, and fast-starting team-mate Mark Webber was able to leapfrog him during the pit sequence.
At that point in the race Mercedes racer Lewis Hamilton moved up to third, despite pitting outside his old team McLaren's garage initially. He quickly realised his mistake, and soon closed the gap down to Red Bull team-mates Webber and Vettel to make it a terrifically close three-way fight for victory.
The trio provided lap after lap of enthralling racing, but as the race and pitstops unfolded, it became clear that the battle for glory would boil down to the Red Bull pairing. Despite frantic calls from the drivers' pit crew to take care, the two duelled wheel to wheel for many laps in an enthralling battle.
On lap 46 team boss Christian Horner was heard to tell the triple world champion that his dogged attacks against his team-mate were getting "silly" - just as the German finally made the most of his DRS advantage and made a move stick. A disgruntled Webber hung on for second.
After the race Vettel was told by his team that "there will be some explaining to do" while the broadcasters blocked Webber's response when congratulated on his second place finish by his pit crew.
Post-race Webber added: "I want to race as well, but in the end the team made a decision which we always say before the start of the race is how it's probably going to be: we look after the tyres and get the cars to the end. In the end Seb made his own decisions today and will have protection as usual, and that's the way it goes."
