Yeah, i reckon you're right ( wouldn't I know it :tired: ) but that only started to happen in 2006, in 2005 the Ferrari's were reliable, but they were just slow. A failure for the Ferrari pre 2006 was a really rare sight but it was quite predictable for a McLaren. And suprisingly, McLaren are now bulletproof :blink:

i wanna watch it.. i wanna watch it... so sad, no live broadcasting here.. god, i wish i'm in malaysia rite now..

alonso is having a gearbox problem? i think this is the first time his car is having any mechanical or technical problem. before this none rite? he's not lucky anymore i guess..

sepang is ferari fav track! go ferari~!!! yeah, ferari is getting fragile while mclaren is getting stronger time by time. i guess it's something to do with last year controversy? the one involving mc laren stealing ferrari's secret? :<>:

Wow, someone agrees with me! :cool:

Also, the Force Indias and McLarens look similar from a long distance

They have to show to the FIA that their car is safe:P The suspension is very weak, first Australia with the Massa-accident and now going over the kerbs making the suspension look like chocolate :p
Raikkonen came without fuel, due to bad communication :huh: What the **** are they doing???

Umm, sure Alonso's had reliability problems just like everyone else. Granted, he probably had the best reliability through 2005-2007, but it's always down to the car. Before 2005 Renault used to blew up regularly too.

Seems odd to me that they didn't also take Webber out of second practice. Very risky situation.

Watched practıce 2 and Ferrarı looks very strong in race pace, :thumbsup: but they are still not quick at one lap performance. :huh:
I thınk if Ferari don't have relaibility issues they are favorites here, anyway my predict for race is;

1. Raikonen
2. Hamilton
3. Massa
4. Kubica
