Yes it was ridicilous. It also tells Hamilton went up, in fact he stays in his position.

I think signals didn't start this season well.

Yep,Also The Live timing commentary made a mistake, saying Lewis was first in the standings on 14 points, Kimi 2nd with 11, then Heikki third on 10. When Heidfeld actually has 11 points.

Yay, Ferrari is back in action! Or at least one of their drivers...

Kimi beat Massa in the first pit stop already. His start was fine too, but as he said, not worth to risk it all there. After that it looked like easy 1-2 for Ferrari, but Massa ruined his Malaysian GP again. :tired: Too bad, because Kimi needs Massa and Ferrari also needs him if they want to dream about the constructors championship.

Anyway, Kimi's championship starts now and we'll see how strong they are in Bahrain. BMW had also been very strong the whole weekend and it was a brilliant result for Kubica.

This is a very good track when you think about it. Lots of overtaking, especially at the start. Heidfeld's double overtake reminded me of Spa 2000 and Brazil 2007 when Kubica also passed two cars then. :nosweat:

Well well well, Kimi is now back and I think McLaren should beware... :wink:

Trulli has been strong the whole weekened. He definitely deserved this and held Hamilton nicely. Congrats to him and Toyota! $peace It's interesting to see if Toyota can be competitive elsewhere too.

Gooooo Kimi !yahoo:

Perfect drive from him, he was fast when he needed to be, passed Massa after the pits and got the job done. Way to go! :thumbsup: And Kimi, some advice: the champagne is to be drunk, not splashed in the eyes :nosweat:

March 23rd 2003-Kimi's first win in Malaysia.......March 23rd 2008-his 16th win, also in Malaysia :p

Great pace shown by Ferrari all weekend and it could easily have been a 1-2 had Massa not lost his focus there. I think he was just frustrated that Kimi passed him with just one lap more fuel and let his head down and his concentration slip away. But he needs to step up to the game if Ferrari want to take the fight to the Macs.

Happy for Kubica though, a great race from him also, although he must have felt lonely on the track most of the race :nosweat: And the Beemers seemed faster than the McLarens in this race, interesting...The team have done a great job

But yay for Kimi!!! !yahoo:

Force India (Fisi) finished in front of both Williams and Honda and just shy to Piquet of Renault. And Toro Rosso experienced its second Ferrari engine failure. Vettel and Bourdais were very promising in Australia but they didn't find the speed at all.

Well, duh, it was pretty obvious. :wave: At least he admitted it and not blamed the car or traffic or sth :tired:

Almost forgot: did you see the double pass that Heidfeld pulled on Alonso and Coulthard? Beauuuutiful :p
