Finney, thats optimistic. Even I wish the same finishing order for the MalaysianGP.

A wet weekend in Malaysia, A 2-tier diffuser which can generate 40% more downforce would master the wet race.

My predictions:

1. Button
2. Raikkonen
3. Kubica/Massa

I think it would be Brawn GP once again ... I do not think McLeran and Ferrari are up to the challenge yet.

Not sure of the order but I think the honors will be shared among Button, Vettel and Raikkonen (Vettel is the man to watch out on wet surfaces)

After the second Friday practice, its Ferrari 1-2 at the top with Kimi taking first followed by Massa. Vettel was third with Brawn cars finishing 6 and 7.

Looks like Ferrari have found their pace or is it just a one off show. This weekend GP will be very exciting.

Being a Ferrari fan, All I can do is jump with joy seeing this news!

Can't access F1 from work as it's blocked! Someone post the timings please!

It will help them to some extent in overtaking during the race

Ferrari messed up big time by not sending Massa out again in Q1, thinking he is safe

(KERS runners in bold)
1 Button
2 Trulli
3 Glock
4 Rosberg
5 Webber
6 Kubica
7 Raikkonen

11 Nakajima

14 Kovalainen
15 Bourdais
16 Massa
17 Piquet
18 Fisichella
