    It says that ALL the time, even when it's not. It didn't rain much at all last week in KL, definitely no thunderstorms.

    I'm expecting Mercedes, Lotus and perhaps Ferrari to show their hand a bit more this time out. There's quite a few long straights which traditionally play to McLaren's strengths, will be interesting to see whether that holds true with their current car.

    I'm quietly and cautiously hoping for a repeat of 2009 form from Jenson.

    i want mclaren/button to win again, but mainly because they are the only car without the stupid looking nose

    I reckon that Toro rosso should do quite well, probably a points finish

    What about Maurissa? They don't have the ugly nose either...

    What's that supposed to mean? McLaren went for a lower nose as it gave them a lower CoG. Over the past few years that's always been their design philosophy.

    There are no accurate weather forecasts for Malaysia and weather can change with very short or no notice at all, also Kuala Lumpur is almost 60km away from the F1 circuit in Sepang, it could very well be raining cats and dogs in Kuala Lumpur but bone dry in Sepang.s

    good point, the track is a bit like the nurburgring track where the weather is unpredictable, even despite using the weather stations.

    I hope a tribute is done for Simoncelli.

    I love how most of the grid is now competitive judging by Australia, we should see some great battles at every single race. As always, i hope for a McLaren 1-2 but i'm also looking down the field and hoping for good races from the Saubers, they have good drivers and good cars.

    I genuinely believe because of the way the cars have come along that every race is going to be a belter. I mean i can only judge it by Australia but look at the way the grid was set up, teams seem to be closer to each other this year so we should see some great battles at every race.

    Best to wait till about Thursday night before we look at weather, track temperatures and all that.

    My only gripe with Sauber is that i wish they would 2 stop rather than 1, the tyres are just not fast enough for long enough.

    I did love it about 10 years ago when you had some right strategy battles.

    A more civilised hour at least

    Hope Lotus and Mercedes can take the fight to the big boys, if silly mistakes and idiotic Venezuelans stay out the equation we could have one hell of a scrap.

    There's no such thing as a weather forecast for Malaysia, there's 'wishful thinking', 'hope' and 'a stab in the dark' :p:
