Winning for the Ferrari will be really difficult though we dont know what fuel strategy the red cars are running. A podium may not be out of the reckoning. One point to note is that while the Renault and the Mclarens are running one race old engines, the Ferraris are running brand new ones so just maybe the Renaults and Mclarens may just have to take care of their powerplants because Sepang is one killer of a race in terms of heat. The Bridgestones seem to be working well here though

All said and done i'm really looking forward to Nico Rosberg race. It would be great to have him on the podium. Williams form seems to be really good and BMW Sauber must be eating their heart out. I expected BMW to do much better than they are doing at the moment. But hats off to Cosworth for those great engines

My prediction is Kimi in 1 or 2 and alonso not in podium. Kimi came 3 from 20 in the last race.

VERY GOOD VICTORY for Fisico ... Very well done Fisichella .. good cool drive into Second by Alonso
Very well executed pitstop strategy by Renault ..
Badluck to Button and Honda .. Poor pitwork by Ferrari and MS .. Good drive for last few laps by Massa soaking immense pressure from MS .. Montoya a very solid drive for Fourth

He is justifying the AD on his car ....... "KEEP WALKING" By JOHHNY WALKER.

Now that the race is over ... i can't stop thinking bout the Body language of the renault drivers.

Alonso = Coke without Fizz

Fisichella = All Champagne

Signs of team taking sides with Fisichella more this year as they know Alonso will be switching to Mcleran next year?

Why would you say that? They were running different strategies. Alonso's strategy had a goof up, so he came second. Fisichella didn't get new engine because the team liked him more, because regulations let him due to last race.

I was expecting Ferrari to be on top but still it worked good for them by ending up 5th n 6th from the back of the grid. But MS pit stop could have been judged better to give him another position up. Well, Kimi crashing out again due to suspension failure. McLaren better be stong cuz if it goes on like this..they wouldn't b on top for long.

Finally Renault on top

I didn't. There's a world of difference between a car built by Williams and one built by Sauber. Williams have won multiple world championships. Their cars are capable of running at the front along with the McLarens, Ferraris, Renaults and Hondas. In comparison, Sauber are nowhere. Remember the Mercedes story? They were languishing at the tail-end of the field when they were "Sauber Mercedes". It was only after they joined forces with McLaren that they came up. To me, team BMW Sauber is all hype and no go.

This race showed us how strong the Renaults are. I expect them to continue this way all season. All the others will have to work extra hard if they are to challenge Renault's supremacy.

I didn't know Kimi had a suspension failure. Did he? I thought his mistake, in that case I take back what I've said above.

Very good day for Renault, good drive by Fisi and Alonso was also very good making 3 up in the first few seconds of the race. Kimi had to pay for his own mistake. I think this time Ferrari's strategy didn't work quite well.
