Mclaren have a policy in place. whoever qualifies ahead gets to choose the pit stop strategy. Hence Alonso got to chose when he would stop. He played it perfectly.

He was alway in control. Didn't try to push his tyres too hard, was happy to sit behind Lewis, as he knew he'd get his chance with the pit stop. Once he was ahead, it was clear he had the pace on Lewis.

Hamilton lost the 2nd position when he was stuck behind the backmarkers during his in lap(stop 2),it must have cost him around 2 secs and when it was Alonso's turn to come in he was clear of traffic and put in a nice in lap and place lost for Hami.

what is suprising is how competent he was in his first race though he did venture out in the grass twice,much much better that what Heki drove especially when u consider that he was a test driver for renault last year.

Its all about engine noice. You can hardly see the cars as they are so fast. Make sure you get a place next to a slow turn. Study the circuit map before you go. You would want to be in one of the accident prone area. You will not want to move once the race starts. so decide before.

Default Prediction: Malaysian Grand Prix

So the 2nd race of the season is just a week away. The teams like Ferrari, McLaren, Renault n all look pretty much up for the constructors championship this year. Ferrari n Kimi got off to a fantastic start this season, and now only if they can keep it goin...

Hope Massa gets going this time, without gettin probs with his car.

A head to head between Ferrari and Mclaren taking the top two rows. Didnt see the session but Rosberg has done well for himself well slotting into 6th I guess.

Should be a fabulous race tom and i'm sure our boys out there will have a blast.

Massa saved our day just when it looked like Mclaren took pole position by Alonso.

It was interesting at the last moment. Kimi took pole, Fonso pipped him and then he was pipped by Felipe soon after.

Massa looks good to take the race 2morrow,from what can be made out kimi is slightly heavier than Massa and Alonso is running pretty light to get into a good postion at start of the race,in race pace the mclaren is no match for the ferrari.
