But then I saw Coulthard do a smiliar thing at silverstone 3 years back, went flying in, almost hit the wall and locked a tyre to try and slow down almost hitting the back of someone.

Coulthard is not a great example of a consistant driver. Alonso however is a good example of a consistant driver  Smile

Well, it seems like you just don't want to like Hamilton regardless of what he achieves... you say you don't want him to be successful, and then you say he has to be successful to prove himself to you... I have no problem rooting for him, mainly because I'd love to see him kick Alonso's ass.

I think alonso is brilliant. He's a consistantly fast driver. He has driven amazingly underneath percieved pressures me and you cant even begin to fathom. (Just look at the last 4 or 5 races of last year and how easy it would have been for alonso to crack).

So far, hamilton has ridden a media tidal wave into the F1 paddock and came 3rd. He's not as smart as you think. Alonso is WAY smarter than him and WAY more experienced. I think its going to be no contest between alonso & hammy...

They're showing qualifying here at 2am and the race at 10:40pm. I'm two hours ahead of KL.. go figure.

I'm the Kaddy when it comes to Hamilton. He needs to do it tough before the success comes. It's character building. All the greats have come upon hard times during their F1 career.

2kph in the speed-limited pit lane cost the Brazilian 4,800 euro, payable to the Stewards.

Massa's inconsistancy is starting to show again this season.

Guess Fernando is suffering from the same inconsistency-

Fernando Alonso is the first driver in Malaysia to get caught speeding in the pitlane. The McLaren driver was in a hurry in Friday's second free practice session as he got fined twice for speeding in the pitlane.

The first fine (€ 600) Alonso received for going 63.3 km/h 40 minutes into today's second free practice session. His second fine came twenty-five minutes later when he was caught speeding at 61.4 km/h. His second fine will cost him € 400.

Glad to see the KLIA banner in the circuit. Also AirAsia.com sticker at AT&T William cars, at the back of the Lenovo sticker. Great Malaysian participation in F1 business.

It has been a BIG news here that our tiny neighbour, Singapore is vying to host the F1 race for South East Asia in 2010 onwards. What do you guys think? Malaysia or Singapore is the better F1 host? Singapore doesn't have a circuit and their race will be done in downtown roads, ala Monaco GP. Mark Webber tested the proposed circuit last week and he said, "It was challenging."

It has been a norm that Singapore is always envy of Malaysia and the other way arround.

- KUL vs SIN
- MH vs SQ
- Singapore Port vs Port of Tanjung Pelepas

Now F1!

By the way, Ferrari boss Mr. Jean Todt was honoured the title 'Dato Seri' (something like Sir in Malaysia) by our King recently. A big news as well is that he is going to married Malaysian primadona, Dato Michelle Yeoh very soon. It was kind of ackward to refer Mr. Todt as 'Dato Seri Jean Todt' because first and foremost, he is not a Malaysian and I personally have no idea why such a big honorary title being awarded to him. Does he had done something big for Malaysia, (apart from dating Ms. Yeoh) not that I can recalled.

I also think the BMW Sauber cars and drivers have been doing very well in front of the home crowd. They are HUGE in Malaysia.

I was in Kuala Lumpur last week and a BMW Sauber car was at the centerstage of Suria KLCC's concourse underneath the Petronas Towers. No other team can hold such a massive marketing campaign like BMW Sauber in Malaysia!

Hopefully they'll make it to the podium tomorrow.

By the way, I pity Renault very much. Being the defending champion (and runner up too) at the Malaysian GP last year, they finished 11th and 12th respectively in the qualifying. Renault boss must misses Alonso like dying!

And Renault,
What is going on here, really! An interesting point in Q2 was that they had Heiki in P10, and if Fisi would have made it in to Q3, he would have pushed Heiki out. What a blow all together for the team.
On the other hand, this only shows that Fisi was never running in the shadow of Alonso. He just do not have what it takes.

Guys, this news was in the local daily today. Check it out. A MUST read!


Schuey and Alonso missed by Ferrari and Renault
The Star Malaysia

TOP teams Ferrari and Renault still miss their world champions.

During the official press conference yesterday, Ferrari boss Jean Todt and Renault’s Flavio Briatore had to be reminded that Germany’s Michael Schumacher and Spaniard Fernando Alonso were no longer in their teams.

Schumacher, a seven-time world champion, retired as Ferrari driver at the end of last season while Alonso, a two-time champion for Renault, moved to McLaren this season.

The two bosses accidentally mentioned the two as their current drivers. To add to their embarrassment, their current number one drivers were sitting beside them.

Kimi Raikkonen was next to Todt while Giancarlo Fisichella sat beside Briatore.

“If you are missing somebody important in the team you know it. Like any company, any time you are missing a good player in the company then you are missing something, this is sure,” said Briatore.

“But we need to understand that we are strong and the people working with Giancarlo and Heikki (Kovalainen) are doing their best.”

Then came Briatore’s boo-boo with names.

“You turn the page and you try to do the best you can and this moment everybody is motivated to give the best to Fernando and Heikki ... I mean Giancarlo ... I am sorry, I am sorry.”

Then, it was Todt’s turn to make a similar gaffe, referring to “Michael” as if Schumacher was still his main driver.

Kimi will loose his engine half way through the race. Alonso will dispose of Massa easily and Hamilton will make a rookie mistake.

By the sounds of things Alonso is getting the timing of enabling the speed limiter wrong

1.4 km/h and 3.3 km/h do not really compare to being 24.2 km/h  Wink

Sadly Renault have no chance this year. Flavio isn't help things by criticizing his driver's.

ITV mentioned some rumors about Honda planning to build a new car for the 2nd half of the season. They should go back to the 2006 design until then if this is the case, as I can't see the 2007 car improving drastically.

So.

1. Alonso
2. Massa
3. Hamilton
4. Heidfeld...


Then we'll see...I think Rosberg and Kubica are going to do well in this race.

Might be,
but that means that they will have to do the crash tests and the certification to be able to compete with it, and when that is done, and if it would fail, they would still have to run with the 2007 car until they have managed to get the 2006 car approved.

The Petronas Malaysian GP is now started!  hyper 

Massa only held the pole position for about 3 seconds. He was overtook by Alonso and Hamilton at the very first corner. Maclaren is heading 1-2. Pretty sucks for Ferrari.

One of the Spyker car (Sutil) also crashed on the first lap but I think he has join the race back.

Alonso is running just under 1 second a lap faster then Hamilton. Raikkonen is clearly faster then Hamilton. Although they do seem to be swapping laptimes. I'm only watching timing on the internet, but was Massas mistake one of his typical wild child type of moves?

Alonso get his and McLarens first win of the season! Hamilton gets one step closer to the top of the podium, with Raikkonen unable to catch finishing in third. Pole sitter Massa finished in fifth with Heidfeld getting fourth. After a disappointing qualifying Renault get a double points finish with Fisichella in sixth and Kovalinen in eighth, his first points finish.

6. Fishichella
7. Trulli
8. Kovailanen

Congratulation to Alonso on his superb 1st winning in Sepang.

Also, to Heidfeld for a consisyent performance. I think all 26 million Malaysians are very proud of his achievement in the home race. If only Rosberg car didn't went out, it should be a double joy.

Renault's drivers redeemed themselves by finishing with points.

Fantastic!!! Big grin First win for McLaren after a baron spell, and it happens to be a 1 - 2!

Great strategic race by McLaren, although the credit has to go to Hamilton for doing a great job in keeping infront of both Ferrari's, thus allowing Alonso to open up a gap at the front. I would not have predicted such a start from both McLarens!

Hamilton has yet again proved himself, keeping his cool when Kimi was gaining on him at the end of the race adding great excitement to the race finish!

Not much to say about Massa, out tricked by the young Hamilton  Yeah sure

Very unfortunate failure for Rosberg who was going great up until that point  Sad

Happy Easter guys!

Great result for McLaren.. Cangs. to Balonso ( Smile) and Hamilton. Ferrari had a dissappointing result. It was good to see Massa fighting with Hamilton but he needs more experience I guess. Massa is under pressure because of Kimi, he wants to proove himself as a first driver. This is why he cannot focus on the race I think.

There will be a great challenge between Ferrari, McLaren and BMW this season. It is so sad to see Honda in the back but I hope they will recover soon. Another dissappoinment is from Renault.

Also my favourote pilot Sato was very cool today, I would like to see him again as a Kamikaze Pilot Big grin

It is so sad to see Honda in the back but I hope they will recover soon. Another dissappoinment is from Renault.

Fingers crossed for the end of the season. Renault wern't too bad. At least they got points today from both drivers.

This is the thing that worries me about this driver, he just throws everything in there, and all of it just gets screwed up.

I was slightly worried that he might actually take Hamilton out when trying to pass him however it was all good in the end from Hamiltons point of view.

Hamilton has yet again proved himself, keeping his cool when Kimi was gaining on him at the end of the race adding great excitement to the race finish!

Kimi ran out of laps. Yes Hamilton kept it together and didn't give away time unnecessarily , but the real test would have been to see if Lewis could keep Kimi behind.

These kinds to things are going to keep happening. It's becoming more clear that when things don't go Massas way he gets frustrated and all hot under the collar. When he learns to control tha he will be a much better driver

Well it was for sure a great race.

Hamilton impressed again, Alonso, more or less had it easy really once he got passed Massa, but none the less, still a good drive by him.

I am delighted I am able to say Mclaren lead both championships again - long may that continue.

It was good to see Massa fighting with Hamilton but he needs more experience I guess

More experience? Massa has been racing in F1 long enough now to be able to fight for position...

Quoting Emrecan (Reply 90):
Massa is under pressure because of Kimi, he wants to proove himself as a first driver

I dont think this is true. Massa and Kimi are treated as equal drivers (From what I can see). Massa is just as good as kimi, he's very underrated...

Quoting Emrecan (Reply 90):

I hope they dont... for the last few years they've been promising to be fighting up at the sharp end of the race but never deliver. There is only so much spin you can believe before you just have to admit... Honda are crap...

Quoting Emrecan (Reply 90):
Also my favourote pilot Sato was very cool today

Sato is on FIRE at the moment and I hope he continues to drive well... Super Aguri deserve to score some points this season...!

He certainly doesn't have the "Ice Man" persona that Kimi does...

Kaddyuk:

We saw Massa's experience(!) today. He pushed and he was out.
Also it is very clear that he is under pressure becuse of Kimi. Kimi is more popular than Massa and he is trying to proove himself. A clear question to you.. How times you saw Kimi fighting for the 1st place and how many times Felipe? This is what I was meaning. The time spent in the race is not exactly what I was saying. You saw Hamilton, this is his 2nd race and he has beaten Felipe. I hope you understand now 


Why are you against Honda? If there is another team fighting for the 1st place, will it bad?
Sato had the courage to make spectecular moves even he couldn't have managed sometimes. I am sure Super Aguri will get points this year with Sato and Davidson.

Massa is quick, but he is just unrefined. He clearly took a step forward last season and he need to continue to build on that.

They're starting to sound like DC when he was win McLaren with his "This year is my year" statements.

Quoting Emrecan (Reply 98):

Kimi was given more opportunities to win at McLaren. Massa has only been with Ferrari in a racing role for one season, he hasn't had the same amount of opportunities to win. Especially having MS as a teammate

There is a difference between courage and stupidity.
