Well so far it's shaping up to be out with the old and in with the new team wise.

Should be interesting as there usually is a kerfuffle in the first turn or two.

Button is going to romp away again, isn't he?

Australia was a pretty good race, if it rains this one could be a cracker too.

No worries, he's going to kamikaze into whoever is on the outside in Turn 1...

Wow, look at the difference between Kubica and Heidfeld! Not to mention that both are heavier than the front runners. I foresee a crash in Turn1.

Oh, and unless BMW comes up with a lot of improvement, it's likely Kubi's last year with them.

Nick was able to fuel his car because he intially finished 11th but then bumped up to 10th with the 10 place grid penalty given to Seb Vettel for the incident with Robert in Melbourne. So that said Nick is in the box seat for the first stint in regards to fuel load. Wouldn't want to be stuck behind him.

Big call with Robert Piotr ;)

I like the grid as it is. I'd like it to more or less finish this way. First race for a while where I haven't wanted rain.

Button looks sharp. Toyotas will keep with him as they were bloody fast in Aus.

Vettel and Kubica might be a threat later on and Alonso is on heavy fuel so he could make it interesting.

Looking good all round, can't wait.

There are some feeds in english here but you have to test if they work properly.

Lots of rain storm clouds above the track :D ! That should boost Vettel's confidence aswell as Hamilton's!

Some very very dark clouds in Sepang.

Looks like we're going to have rain at some stage. And when it rains in Malaysia it really rains. Monsoon tyres will be needed.
