Stat Attack: Sepang
Michele Merlino investigates the records and compiles the stats ahead of the 2013 Malaysian Grand Prix
• Sebastian Vettel has scored points and led the race only twice in Malaysia – when he won in 2010 and '11. He adds to that two accidents and an engine failure. Last year he fell back during the race, and his hopes of winning ended when he collided with Narain Karthikeyan's HRT, puncturing his left-rear tyre.
• Mark Webber started from pole in 2010, ahead of his team-mate Vettel, but was pipped at the first turn and had to settle for second, his only podium finish at Sepang. He was fourth twice in the past two editions. His qualifying performances are particularly striking: in the past nine races in Malaysia he always been in the top 10.
