A traditionally difficult circuit for McLaren. I think no podium this time for the Woking-based squad. Ferrari and Red Bull will be on the podium. Have to see who'll have the edge in the practices. And McLaren will maybe get a 4th place.

RBR are not worried about their reliability :lol:

Well, I would be worried if I were them, they should have had 2 victories already!

Currently I'm stayed 30miles to the north of sepang race track.And in one week, at my place almost 3 to 4 days rains fall heavily (sometime with thunderstorm) around 5-6 o'clock at local time in the evening.

So i'm looking forward to see another wet race but please..not too much shower,last year is %^&$#@%^&***!!!

and as of most recent seasons, championships have been won in the early stages of the season. (or have been lost because of poor season stars)

McLaren may well go quite handy here - their top speed has been good (LH was 5kph faster than anyone through the speed trap) and the track is quite similar to Australia in terms of corner speed composition. They only struggled in Bahrain through the twisty S2, they were fine in S1 and S3...

I fear another Bahrain coming....
Vettel for pole and if nothing goes wrong this time, then he'll win.

But McLaren was always known as the best team in the slow corners (at Monaco and Hungary they ALWAYS do/did well).. Will this means they have a completely different car compared to other years?

Their car seems very long (I know they all are compared to '09) but even so... Compare to the Virgin VR-01 which is very short and should work well around Monaco + Hungary. Button goes well in Malaysia as well - nearly got a podium in 2002, 3rd in 2004, 3rd in 2006, won in 2009.
