    (CNN)A furious Lewis Hamilton lashed out at his Mercedes team after a dramatic engine blow out handed Red Bull a one-two in the Malaysian Grand Prix Sunday and left his teammate Nico Rosberg with a 23-point lead in the title race.

    Two-time defending champion Hamilton was leading an incident-packed race and looked set to reclaim the championship lead from Rosberg when he was forced out on lap 41 of 56 in Sepang.
      It was the latest in a series of engine and technical issues that have hindered the Briton's bid for a third straight championship and Hamilton was implicit in his criticism of his previously all-conquering team.
