Malaysia - From Max Verstappen's dominance to Ferrari's woes at Sepang, here are the top five moments of the 2017 #MalaysianGP. 

Victory for Verstappen

During a season filled with crashes and technical issues, Red Bull's Verstappen rewarded himself with the perfect birthday gift by not only winning but dominating throughout the #MalaysianGP

Verstappen demonstrated impressive pace during qualifying with his car perfectly set up for the race. All it took was an early overtake of then race-leader Lewis Hamilton and the Dutchman was never challenged at Sepang. 

Verstappen's team mate Daniel Ricciardo was third ahead of Vettel, who weaved through the field to finish fourth after starting at the rear of the grid due to engine issues. Vettel's amazing feat was marred by a crash during the 'çooldown lap'.
