Man, I miss the Schumi-Brawn-Todt days. They won a good bunch of races just on their race strategies. Somehow I dont think Domenicali is upto the mark. How can they gamble/mess up with Massa's Q1 lap

What a mess by Ferrari again!

The car just couldnt go any faster. Kimi was on the limits in Q2 and the spl diffusers beat him left & right! :(

Interesting qualifying session today. The Brawnies have done it again. Mclaren not up to the mark and Ferrari goofing up once again. The Toyotas are looking good and Vettel was shining too. Turn 1 should be interesting tomorrow. If the rain doesnt play havoc, this should be another win for Button.

I read somewhere that Kimi's KERS was off during qualifying, he was just carrying the KERS, without using it. I hope its not serious, if he is not going to use KERS in the race, his race is gone.
If it rains, it will be a lottery depending on when it starts to rain.
I am hoping for rain midway in the race, so it can mix up the grid

Default Ferrari - Doomed

Ferrari are officially doomed after huge miscalculations during Qualifying (Massa) and during the Race (Kimi). Who the hell is in charge of strategy there? The original dream team (Schuey, Brawn, Todt) were just unreal.

Button declared winner of storm struck Malaysian GP.

Apparently, the officials are taking the standings from lap 31. So the list looks like:
1. Button
2. Heidfeld
3. Glock
4. Trulli
5. Barrichello
6. Webber
7. Hamilton
8. Rosberg

They (ferrari) forgot the basic stuff today. You put wet tyre only when it rains, you don't put wet tyre run 20 sec a lap slower than every one else and pray for rain.

Luca, ask your guys to keep an eye on Ross at the last pit garage and do what he does

Congrats Ross, Jenson and Timo.
Nick got lucky again to get a podium.
