Three races this year and three different winners ! Looks like this years championship is going to be a close fought one. After three races, only 4 points separate the top five drivers !

I would love to see someone from Force India to be in top three this time. Sutil did a great job in Malaysian GP.

@ottocycle: What you said isn't very far-fetched. Sutil did superbly @ Sepang. But for this year's GP, my money is on Vettel. But if Ferrari manage to get the F-duct going, the others better watch out. Lets wait for Shanghai!

Lets see , if Red Bull can repeat the last years 1-2 performance.

Hope both of Force Indians finish at top ten. At-least one in the front row..

I'm sure force india will reach there. But i'm not sure if it will be as soon as shanghai. While they will be ready to move up the order if any of the front runners make some mistakes i dont think they're ready to fight for it yet. But then again i hope i'll be proved wrong cos i would love to see them score big.

Hopefully this will help us to have an even better race

"Shanghai International Circuit is severe on tyres," said Hamashima. "There are very high lateral forces and we expect to see graining on the front left tyres, especially caused by the increasing radius turn two and the banked turn thirteen. We could also see graining on the rear tyres here too. We are a step harder in our allocation for this year compared to 2009 because of the heavier cars and the severity of this track."

Didn't think this was worth a new thread but the Crashgate saga seems to finally be over.

I just dont understand the reason that Schumi is unable to extract performance out of the MErcedes cars. I of course dont expect him to be churning out victories after a 6 year sabbatical, but atleast expect top-5 finishes. I sincerely hope his comeback is not a disaster and the Shanghai GP turns out exciting for him(and for me)!!
