They quickly removed it and put another tyre correctly but then he was already a lap down and in the last place. He still managed to fight back upto 9th. It was a case of very bad luck for Massa who could have been on the podium othewise

The race was very good. Loads of overtaking and excitement. Massa was almost going to knock Alonso with him luckily Alonso braked well in time to avoid him.

Nothing against Tifosis but heck why the hell does always micheals team-mates have pitstop blunders happening to him. Seems that Micheal is given way more priority rather then it being equal to both

Nico Rosberg's performance was too good in Bahrain. Even though he is in a good team its one of the best performance from a rookie, he has set the fastest lap for the race and thats something really amazing.

David Coulthard is facing a 10 place grid penalty for Malasian GP for blowing up his engine at the end of the race.

Kimi absolutely bludgened through...hope his car leads him to the championship this year...

Nice to see Alonso take it down to Schumi and emerge on top (I know you Ferrari fans wanna kill me)...

Hope all the other races are equally enthralling and not cakewalks...

1) Alonso, the best overall driver, good overtaker, fast and good defense when being chased
2) Kimi, the fastest driver on circuit, not a good overtaker
3) Montoya, the best overtaker
4) Schumi, fast, excellent strategost, the best defensive driver, verge of cheating, would run others of road if need me (i know i m going to get burned for this...lol)

Default Race Prediction-Malaysia

Ok.. now that the first race was an eye-opener for everyone.. what do you guys think about the upcoming race in Malaysia?
I say
Kimi/Michael/Fernando... top three.. but is gonna be difficult to tell the exact positions.
Button is the dark horse according to me... if he gets a good grid position.. then all my predictions are gonna go out the window.

1)KIMI, 2)ALONSO, 3)ROSBERG... I hope Michel will not have the advantage he had at bahrain because many other teams were running conservative strategy not knowing other's race performance. Malaysia will be an out of the box race...Check out the fastest lap in bahrain and you will know.

renault, ferrari, mclaren and honda look very competitive, also williams were promising... i think its very difficult to choose the winners. gut feel says massa will be in the podium.

Can't say much so soon. Gotta atleast wait till Friday Practice. But Ferrari, McLaren and Renault would be my pick followed by Honda, Williams n Toyota.

And the drivers...again Schumacher Alonso Kimi. There better be a lot more agressive racing than in Bahrain btw these guys

From my view Nico needs a little bit of experience to become a qualifying specialist, no doubt he will master it within a few races. The confidence he has for his age while driving really rocks.
