Have you see, that the onlies world champion drivers now on the grid, have droven Mclaren, and both of them, don't want to see these wheel again?. How many championship, driver or team, have mclaren won on last years?. McLaren has a cancer, Dennis. If Coulthard, Montoya, Raikonnen and Alonso, don't want to see Mclaren+Dennis again, maybe do you have to believe 2 world champions + 2 good drivers, before a Mclaren/Dennis/Jaimito.

And if you think Alonso is guilty about Jaimito "mistakes" (china'07 with his tyres broken and he on track, the most stupid decision; and jaimito fingers on Brasil'07) then you really don't know any about this sport. Where are Mclaren before Alonso?. Nobody bet for Mclaren to win championship before 01/01/2007. After Alonso+Pedro develop these car, Mclaren must have to win driver and team championship. Only Dennis+Jaimito can broke Alonso+Pedro work, and they did it.

If you can see it....

Ferrari will bounce back, with a Raikkonen-win. But it's going to rain I think, so I'm not going to make any predictions, but when it dry:
1. Kimi
2. Lewis
3. Massa

I think this season reliablity won´t be the most important issue

There is going to be a lot of accidents because of the drivers who

are not used to drive without electronic help

and Kimi is a "nervous" driver...

amraim wrote:Well, Kuala Lumpur isn't a good track for Ferrari. But as there is no traction control these young guns like Hamilton, Kovalainen etc. will have more problems in bahrain. Kimi knows how to drive without those features, as well as he never liked it. So he is my favorite for Kuala Lumpur.

1. Kimi Raikönnen
2. Louise Hamilton
3. Felippe Massa

5. Fernando Alonso


how come you said sepang isn't a good track for ferrari? when sepang was built few years ago, they took advice and opinion from michael schumacher in designing the track. so, in my humble opinion, ferrari knows better this track than others. in fact, schumacher still works for ferrari as an advisor right?

so, my prediction :

1. massa
2. nick heidfeld
3. hamilton

i'm not a fan of massa at all but somehow i think schumacher did share with him something about sepang when they were teammates.

i hope it will rain too this sunday... i love a race day with rain... i love watching those accidents and cars slipping on the track.. :p

According to the BBC website, the weather (for Kuala Lumpar, near to the circuit) is due to be 'heavy showers', about 30 degrees celcuis. I'm not 100pc sure if thats right, but i hope it is !yahoo:

Here is the BBC's forecast for the weekend. Traditionally they have been pretty reliable in their predictions:

I hope Kimi will win this race. After many troubles in Australia Ferrari should be ok. There will be under heavy pression in this weekend.
What is more I would like to see Robert on podium. How we know he had wrong strategy in Albert Park which take him away the chance to be on podium.

Do you know that this GP will be propably the last Malaysian Grand Prix which takes place during the day !yahoo:
