2012 one of the best years in f1
Checo deserve better
Checo, you are the man !
Si hubiera ganado su carrera seria muy diferente a ahora
Ese dia se le fue la victoria y que se nego por casi 10 años carajo. Ese dia creo que de haber logrado otra historia seria.
Man I miss these golden years. The dynamic tracks, the sound of the engines, the driver line up 😍
the moment when i realize that Checo is a great driver funny how he need to wait for his maiden win for so many years
I remember watching this race live, I was ecstatic that Checo nearly had that win, I was gutted when he went wide I can remember it now watching it on TV. 2012 was a great season though, so many different GP winners.
His first podium in Malaysia GP 2012 😃 ☝️
Checo,you are the man 👏
So close the win 😢💪
Unbelievable it was such an chaotic race and at the time checo really was there to become a legend his speed was so supernatural that the sauber the sister team of Ferrari, he was really there but this big long right hairpin before the back straight cost him the chance of winning in F1 this was the drive that makes Checo an potential F1 race winner in the future nobody thought that Checo would secure his first podium in F1 but shocks everybody with this unique & iconic performance in the Monsun of Malaysia 2012, he went through Canada to monza to secure 3 podium in his 2nd ever F1 season an tremendous success, in Bahrain 2020 he said that if he doesn't win then he will retire from F1 and he does it with the racing point in a race that shocks everyone in an 4 way incident on lap 1 he is settled down to last but than with the memory of Malaysia he shocks everyone to become an F1 race winner and secure the Redbull seat for 2021 and now he is in possible condition to get his home win and maybe the vize champ title or the title in the current 2023 to 2025 future "oh, Checo is a legend" 🤩🤩🤩🥳🥳🥳🥳🏆🏆🍾🍾🍾🍾❤️❤️❤️
Hopefully Checo is just in a dip and he can come back with more podiums after the summer!
If fernando made a mistake that could have got Perez’s first win in f1 and saubers first in f1
bring back F1 in Sepang!
I remember this race. Seeing him go off like that was a bit scary. At that time, this would have been maybe one of the first 4 or 5 races I ever saw. I probably didn't even see it entirely, just kept it on on the background. After that P2, I saw almost every single lap from that 2012 season. What a title fight between Fernando and Seb, just an epic season!
This race was probably huge reason why he got signed by McLaren the following year in 2013. Unfortunately it was the wrong time to join that team.
Best Fernando Alonso win
Sepang >>>>>>>>>> Miami.
