The first début Ferrari driver to qualify on poll since Fangio, the first Ferrari driver to win his début race since Mansell, Kimi is looking pretty special out there for a man who doesn’t think the car is actually going that well. Once he gets it actually to his liking what will he be able to achieve? But first there is the question of his engine. We won’t know until Saturday Malaysian time. So we all have to take a giant gamble this weekend. What you think will happen with Kimi’s engine determine what you think will happen on Sunday. But remember we do know that Malaysia is a good circuit for overtaking so even if Kimi is charging from the back he should still be able to do very well.
For the rest the McLaren seem to be running well, and may have improved on last time. BMW say they haven’t been affected by the changes to the movable floors. And Renault seem to have improved on their reliability even if they haven’t worked out how to make it go faster!
At the back of the grid we have to ask if Super Aguri will be able to stay in front of Honda, and will Toyota be able to get ahead of the Williams? Supurb stuff!
