BBC Sport - F1 Malaysian GP: Lewis Hamilton makes perfect start in Malaysia

Hamilton's perfect start in Malaysia

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton makes a strong start to the Malaysian Grand Prix, aided by team-mate Nico Rosberg overtaking rival Sebastian Vettel off the line.

The Briton controlled the race from the first corner, with Rosberg finishing second behind him.

Hamilton retired from the first race of the season while Rosberg won, and victory at Sepang reduced his deficit on his team-mate in the championship to 18 points.
