Malaysian Grand Prix

Post by Milan655 on Tue Mar 24, 2015 5:45 pm

First news of the week, Lotus add another driver as equally impressive as Carmen Jorda to their test driver line up : http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/118168

At least he's scored points in GP3. 2.

Raffaele Marciello will be driving for Sauber in FP1 this Friday, making his first official F1 debut. Definitely one of the more interesting junior talents around.

And the TCR International series will make it's debut this weekend as a support series for Formula One with the likes of ex-GP driver Gianni Morbidelli, ex-WTCC drivers Michael Nykjaer, Franz Engstler and Jordi Gene, as well as some other large names with Pepe Oriola. A fairly nice grid of 17 cars so far.

Is Marussia back? if not, the companion race will have more cars than the main event!

I think Manor do plan on racing. They better, only because Bernie may suddenly need more lunch money if they don't.

They'll ask the hot dog van to race so they have over 10.

Vettel is fast, but his strategy was better.

I think we'll see more of that.

Hamilton is going to complain about the teams decision to put him on hards. But knowing Hamilton he would have used the softer tires up so quickly, to the point where he wouldnt be able to fight Vettel at all for the win.

Regardless though, Vettel and his team had a better strategy. And also, this is Vettel's first win since Brazil 2013, and Ferrari's first win since Alomso won for them in Spain 2013.

Max Verstappen also broke the record for youngest driver to score points, at age 17. With the way the license system is, I doubt that'll ever be broken.

Only two races in, and he and his teammate Carlos Sainz Jr. are already impressing me with their talent.
