Yeah, i expect that it will rain hard in qualifying, but what about the race conditions? And if it rains at race, it's gonna be a 2007 European GP without TC.

When it does rain, its going to be very very eventful!

I hate this kind of news; if you are a F1 site, why should you publish the privat life of the one involved in the sport?! f1technical are doing a pretty good job with f1 and this is the reason people like the site, not the gossip and privat life news :<>:

about the rain: we had a great race in melbourne without tc, but if it rains then we may see the other side of the coin :) we don't want to see accidents, but a lot of overtaking. at least this is what I think :)

I'm looking forward the race, we have no idea of if it'll rain or not... And I remember that in Malaysia driving in these conditions brought much spectacle :cheezy:
Go straight to the finish line with ChequeredFlags!

It may be a good race for Alonso because he is always good there.

Red Bull Racing have been asked to supply a technical report to the FIA to explain why the stewards should not consider excluding them from the Malaysian Grand Prix on safety grounds, following David Coulthard's accident in first practice.

im a bit concerned with RBR, its a shame hat ther cars arent very reliable but surely they would have cleared up any safte issues before the start of the season!

I got a scare with kimi stopping, i read it was just that he had run out of fuel, weird.

im looking forward to qualifying today, i dont think hamilton will be so lucky this time bu he did it again in the last session, a quick lap in the last minute. :blink:

im quietly confident!
Thankyou Schumi you will always have a place in our hearts!

I watched the vid several times. What it looked like to me is that because of the shape of the kerb he hopped, he pitched the nose up then down very sharply, and when the tyre hit the track, it was on the FRONT of the tyre, not the bottom, thus causing a huge lateral force to act upon the suspension, which is designed to operate in the normal vertical range.

DC's touch with Massa in Australia looked spectacular with all the broken suspensions and hanging wheels. But for such a touch, I don't think the wreckage would be so severe, contrasting it with Glock's shunt. Now RBR with another wrecked suspension and hanging wheels just over a not too high kerbing... Natural for FIA to demand the technical reports from RBR.
