Lewis Hamilton showed that old habits can be hard to break for some of the best drivers in the world.
Hamilton is in his first season (and second race of the year) driving for his new team Mercedes after spending his entire career with McLaren Mercedes. So when he entered the pits for his first stop of the day in Sunday's race at Malaysia, Hamilton saw the McLaren crew at the ready and pulled right on in. Oops. (Video at the 33 second mark above.)
Sebastian Vettel won the race in a fun display of F1 team orders. He passed teammate Mark Webber for second after he was told not to push the pace as the two were going 1-2. Hamilton finished third after Mercedes boss Ross Brawn told his teammate Nico Rosberg to keep a gap back to fourth.
