the malaysian grand prix in a thrilling race in sa—pang. there was drama even before the race began, because kimi raikkonen‘s ferrari had a problem with its battery, which ruled him out of the race. lewis hamilton finished second — but extends his lead in the championship standings. tom clarkson reports. this was the 19th and last malaysian grand prix, because the race is not on the 2018 calendar. everybody wanted to lay on a good show, and the sport delivered with its fifth different victor of 2017. sebastian vettel at the back of the grid, this race was lewis hamilton‘s to lose. but mercedes had struggled, and the briton‘s lead lasted just three laps.
6:33 pm
red bull‘s max verstappen charged through with the confidence of the multiple world champion he overtook. with verstappen no threat to hamilton‘s title ambitions, that wasn‘t too troubling. but vettle‘s surge through the field was. the german broke the lap record on the way to the fourth place. victory was the perfect birthday present for verstappen, who turned 20 yesterday. a great start to a new decade, well done! it was bittersweet for vettel, the crash damaged his ferrari, and repairing it could mean a grid penalty next weekend in japan. it wasn‘t the result that hamilton hoped for, but he extended his championship lead to sa point. we‘ve got some work to do with the car. obviously we didn‘t have the pace today, this weekend. there is still work to do, races ahead. the sum that we can for sure when. we‘ve just got to keep pushing. of course he has more to lose than me in the championship. from turn one, i could do my race.
6:34 pm
the car was unbelievable. i had pace. you know, ifi i had pace. you know, if i needed to speed up, i speeded up. it's amazing, it's a very tough race. of course, it's incredibly to win. max verstappen is understandably delighted. lewis hamilton satisfied with his day‘s work to have increased that lead over sebastian vettel in the world championship. but ferrari, reliability really is the ricky heel at the minute. —— the wikilea ks —— the wikileaks heel. vettel hampered during qualifying, hamilton hampered during the race. they need to solve that if vettle has any chance of winning the world championship. it is the japanese grand prix next weekend at the world—famous suzuka circuit. liverpool missed the chance to go fourth after a frustrating i—i liverpool missed the chance to go fourth after a frustrating 1—1 draw at newcastle. before the match, newcastle supporters showed their appreciation forformer newcastle supporters showed their appreciation for former chairman freddie shepherd — the man who brought alan shearer to the club — and who died on monday aged 76. joe linski reports. it‘s one of the
6:35 pm
premier league‘s classic fixtures. two clubs that make free scoring pa rt two clubs that make free scoring part of the brand. they shared values and heroes. rafa benitez is as popular on tyneside as he was with the reds. but the current liverpool side have problems to solve. one of them is finishing. four tried to force the issue, none of them squad. he wondered how. take the ball outside the box, though, and they have a man with better aim. this is why philippe coutinho is liverpool‘s prize asset. staggering money couldn‘t strip him from anfield this summer. he is the premier league‘s precision on. but more of those problems were to surface. liverpool score stunning goals, and then let strange ones in. allowed between defenders and in front of the goal, the ball comes in off his shins. from there, neither side could find the breakthrough
6:36 pm
again. finishing was the problem. for liverpool, those issues outweigh the good things. they still have far to go to be contenders. burnley beat everton 1—0 to increase the pressure on their under—fire manager ronald koeman. a goal from jeff hendrick was enough to continue burnley‘s best ever start to a premier league season. alex gulrajani reports. there‘s always been a sweet welcome mat goodison park, and ronald koeman is trying to make it a little less so for visitors. his raft of new summer signings are yet to find their feet. gylfi sigurdsson guilty of letting an early chance slip by. wayne rooney could only watch on, reunited with the everton bench for the first time since returning, and with a prime view of a burnley team far more custom to reach other. hendrick finishing off a 2a—pass move. the kind of play he expected from the team in blue. yet everton were far from offering up anything similar. a tough watch for home fans picked up after the break. chances crept closer to go.
6:37 pm
—— closer to gold. and ronald koeman called for wayne rooney. three goals since returning, no chance of another today. calvert—lewin got closer, but there was no way through. everton fans making their feelings known at full—time. as did the visiting fans, a sweet start to burnley‘s premier league season continues. we‘ve got to stay resolute and work hard for everything that we can. i thought there was a good mixture today. it was a fantastic goal. i don‘t know how many passes it was, but it was a lot. it culminated in a long ball. i think it was a fantastic bit of vision. and then mixing it up with earthy, nitty—gritty defending, good shape, good energy, and the will and desire to see a game through. i think that mixture is important. i can't complain today about my players. i think we showed
6:38 pm
the right attitude. we showed really that commitment, that aggression, what we need to play and win the game. we had big chances in the beginning, then the game will be totally different. and, you know, if you analyse your opponent of the day, if you go down in the score, that's really tough. arsenal made it six wins and a draw in their last seven matches after a comfortable 2—0 at home to brighton. nacho monreal scored his first arsenal goal in nearly five years, while alex iwobi got the second on a special day for the club‘s manager. tim hague reports. arsene wenger has been coming into work at arsenal for 21 yesterday. -- 21 —— 21 years today. and against opponents brighton, playing in the top flight for the first time since 1984, there was no substitute for experience. the home side continued their fine recent form straightaway. alexandre lacazette hitting the post inside a minute, and the pressure kept coming, with the ball being cleared off the line before eventually falling
6:39 pm
to nacho monreal. brighton have been finding their feet over the past few weeks in the premier league, and they almost found a fantastic equaliser. the brighton goalkeeper had a busy afternoon. a stunning stop to keep it at one, yet the second would come. a beautiful touch from alexis sanchez, the finish from alex iwobi. there might have been more for arsenal. ryan, again excellent. with some help from his defender. but 2—0 was how it ended. a decent 21st for wenger, don‘t party too hard tonight. we lost for the bit in our concentration. —— we eased off a bit in our concentration and our decision—making. concentration and our decision-making. then it becomes a bit harder after 2—0. we tried many times to get close to score the third goal, but it didn‘t come. more positives than negatives. it was a difficult game for us. but that was always going to be the case. when you come to these grounds,
6:40 pm
and certainly with the quality that they've got, the quality that they can bring off the bench. it's about making sure that you're staying in the game. well, let‘s have a look at how the premier league table looks after all of those fixtures. liverpool had the chance to go for. as it is, they are off the pace in seventh. everton‘s woes continue. they are down in 16th, and all. to the season, and pressure on the manager, ronald koeman —— and all. full so can he turnit koeman —— and all. full so can he turn it round in time‘s? sheffield wednesday claimed the spoils in the yorkshire derby against leeds united winning 3—0 at hillsborough. gary hooper struck twice in the first half, but kieran lee‘s effort ten minutes before the end was the pick of the goals as the owls sealed a first win in four championship matches. it saw leeds slip to fifth on goal difference. wednesday move up to 12th. barcelona‘s la liga match against las palmas
6:41 pm
was played behind closed doors at the nou camp following violent clashes on the day of the catalan independence referendum. as spanish police attempted to shut the polls, the barca players came out wearing the catalunyan flag in front of an entirely empty stadium. the club had wanted the fixture postponed, but la liga authorities and the spanish football federation disagreed. barcelona won 3—0. frankie dettori has won europe‘s richest horse race for a record fifth time. he rode the favourite enable to victory in the prix de l‘arc de triomphe. it was a dominant performance from dettori and enable, who led right from the start in chantilly. the john gosden—trained philly was priced at evens with some bookmakers before the race. 25 to one shot cloth of stars came in second just ahead of ulysses ridden byjim crowley. ireland‘s paul dunne shot a

nine—under—par 61on the final day of the british masters to hold off rory mcilroy and win his first european tour title. despite carding his lowest round of the season, mcilroy was unable to surpass the world number 192 and looks on course for only the second winless season of his career. dunne was ina winless season of his career. dunne was in a five—way tie for second heading into the final round but carded seven birdies and an eagle to win by three strokes on twenty—under—par at close house. he sealed victory in style with this chip—in on the 18th. wembley has been hosting the second of four nfl games this season. and there have more protests. three miami dolphin players knelt during the american national anthem, while some new orleans saints linked arms. in what was initially a really low—scoring game, the saints are dominating — 20—0 the score. they ended up scoring two second—half touchdowns to win by 20-0. that's second—half touchdowns to win by 20—0. that‘s all from sportsday. there will be more sport on the bbc news channel throughout the evening. goodbye from us. hello, and welcome to

the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week‘s cinema releases is mark kermode. so mark, what do we have this week? the big release is goodbye christopher robin, a film about the creation of winnie the pooh. we also have reese witherspoon in home again, a likeable if daft rom—com. and daphne, a very interesting and edgy home—grown pic. goodbye christopher robin. i used to make up stories for my kids, so i am fascinated by this. tell me i‘m going to love it. i really liked it.
6:44 pm
i know it has divided critics, but it is basically the story of how the winnie the pooh stories came about. it begins with aa milne in world war i, coming back and suffering from what we now call post—traumatic stress and what they then called shell shock. what we now call post—traumatic stress disorder. he leaves london for rural east sussex and wants to write an anti—war tome, which his wife daphne describes as something that sounds perfectly horrid. and he can‘t write anything, and then one day he is walking in the woods with his young son, chistopher robin, and suddenly, apparently out of nowhere, comes this unexpected beauty and he starts writing poems and stories which touch everybody‘s hearts, particularly when illustrated by his great friend, ernest.
