2008 FORMULA 1 PETRONAS MALAYSIAN GRAND PRIX.

Malaysia hosted its first F1 race in 1999. Surprisingly this circuit is owned and operated by the Malaysian Airports.

This track is known to be the finest of tracks world wide because of its clothespin design.

Recently this track has taken a trashing from Mr Bernie Eccelstone for being the worst maintained Venue.
One of my fave track, and yes the best looking track. This was the only track where Ralf Schumacher won his first and the only win of his life in 2002.

All set to see the first race. My money on Raikonnen this year again, but its going to be a lot tougher, I'd assume!

It will be a tough fight between Kimi, Lewis and Fernando. It would be very interesting to see who wins this season. Our own Giancarlo Fischecella if he comes below 10 spots would be an achievement.

Also, the Motogp is starting off this season with a night race at Qatar this Sunday. And, here i am putting my money on Casey Stoner and followed by Dani Pedrosa and Rossi.

I guess Fernando will be a tough choice to be honest. Though a good driver, the car is slightly off the pace. Its almost a second slower than the McLaren and the Ferrari. But, well its a funny game so you never know. But being a True Alonso fan, thanks for mentioning his name in the list.
