Go Kubica!

I wasn't aware of this thread. Actually I'm a big F1 fan. Here are the official results of the qualifying of the race of Albert Park, Melbourne (Australia) taken from the official site

Image

Note that Timo Glock got two five-place penalties, one for an unscheduled gearbox change, and one for impeding M Webber on his fast lap. So he'll start from the 19th place instead of the 9th.

What a great race! :-D

So far, I cannot decide who to support, Kimi or Lewis. Since the asturian dog, Alonso, is out of the title race, it does not really matter to me. :devious:

Here are the race result from the above mentioned site.

But it can't compel the race itself, because as one that was absolutely great. No better opening race could be dreamed.
It was a colorful one. I watched it twice, and it was truly amazing.
Though I was supporting Alonso for the last three years, I got disappointed, as seen a wonder is needed for him to have a chance. The Renault is down, and even the Williams-Toyota is better. I'm happy for the BMW (as it's my favorite car) and I like Vettel too, also I like Kimi, but I'm against Hamilton, he's an arogant guy, and though it's a great driver and for sure he'll win the title this year, I won't support him.

Of course if you're a Ferrari-guy. But still the race was a genial. By the way... how far do you live from Melb.?

A bit late, but here are the qualifying results from Sepang (used the official site for it.)

Image

Note that both McLarens will start with 5 places back on the grid because of impeding Heidfeld and Alonso in their fast lap. Also Nakajima receives a 10 place penalty due to his accident in Albert Park with Kubica

I'm looking forward to a good race, since there can be rain, and there is no traction control in the cars. It's 8:10 AM at me, race in about 50 min so I'll wait this one... :)
