Malaysia was an own goal for Ferrari, and the second in two weeks. It was similar to Singapore, in that Ferrari had the car - or even the cars - to win the race, but tripped over itself. This time it was power unit problems rather than a crash at the start.
Sebastian Vettel's issue at the end of practice three forced a change of V6 engine and MGU-H, and after that rush he hit a turbo problem in Q1 and started last. Ferrari's best hope of victory was then Kimi Raikkonen, but he was struck by a suspected turbo problem on the formation lap.
Given that Raikkonen had qualified only 0.045 seconds behind Lewis Hamilton, there was every chance he could also have finished ahead of the Mercedes driver and helped Vettel's title hopes.
