On This Day:
Alain Prost won two races on March 25th. In 1984, he won the Brazilian GP. It was the debut race for two drivers: Ayrton Senna, future rival to Prost, and Martin Brundle. Though Brundle scored points on his debut, Tyrrell were eventually disqualified from the whole season. Brundle went on to become an F1 commentator.
In 1990, F1 was once again in Brazil, and local boy Senna was on pole in the second race of the season. Ferrari driver Prost won, while Senna was also beaten by his teammate Gerhard Berger and finished third.
In 2012, two more former McLaren rivals were challenging the field. Lewis Hamilton had pole, but once again his ex-teammate Alonso won for Ferrari while Hamilton was third. In P2 was Sauber’s Sergio Perez, taking Sauber’s best-ever result outside of the BMW era and his first podium.
Well. What a weekend. Let’s have a look at the race results from yesterday:
Sebastian Vettel won the Malaysian GP after ignoring team orders and overtaking Webber. Nico Rosberg obeyed team orders, however, so Lewis Hamilton came third. Force India had serious pit issues, while Fernando Alonso broke his wing on lap one and was forced to retire.
In IndyCar, James Hinchliffe won the opening race of the season. Simona de Silvestro finished sixth.
FIA Formula Three and Auto GP took place at a very wet Monza. Pascal Wehrlein won race two, while Raffaele Marciello won race three. The two drivers had some very close battles along with Lucas Auer over the weekend.
Japanese driver Kimya Sato won race two of Auto GP, with Luciano Bacheta twenty seconds behind in second.
