2009 Malaysian GP – Saturday Practice

Final practice for the 2009 Malaysian GP is now over. Nico Rosberg returned back to the top of the time sheets while Red Bull, Ferrari and Toyota all showed respectable pace. Brawn GP cars were coughing up a lot of smoke but apparently that had to something with higher oil levels. Both Button and Barrichello ended the practice at the bottom of top 10 but it may be result of running in Q3 fuel levels … Just a reminder – Sebastian Vettel will be hit with 10 places grid penalty (for the Kubica incident in Mebourne) and Rubens Barrichello with 5 places grid penalty for gear box change.

Here are the final practice times:


1. N. Rosberg – Williams – 1:35.940
2. M. Webber – Red Bull – 1:36.048
3. F. Massa – Ferrari – 1:36.089
4. J. Trulli – Toyota – 1:36.132

6. S. Vettel – Red Bull – 1:36.194
7. K. Räikkönen – Ferrari – 1:36.235
8. K. Nakajima – Williams – 1:36.325
9. R. Barrichello – Brawn GP – 1:36.519
10. J. Button – Brawn GP – 1:36.541
11. R. Kubica – BMW Sauber – 1:36.563
12. L. Hamilton – McLaren – 1:36.657
13. H. Kovalainen – McLaren – 1:36.742
14. F. Alonso – Renault – 1:37.004
15. N. Heidfeld – BMW Sauber – 1:37.026

    These times were off P2 Friday by about a half sec, which says that that top teams were just screwing around, and the guys at the bottom have no hope.

    We should seriously consider were BMW stands. Not Super-diffuser, yet only half-KERS.

    Looking to the future – Red Bull Renault which is neither (but I hear talk of KERS) and with the man-of-the-hour (or boy, sorry, what is he? 20?) Vettel looks like the team to talkabout.

    Rain will toss everything in Sepanga, as it does everywhere.

    I can’t wait for this race to get started. The more I dwell on Australia the more pissed I get. They charged Vettel 10 places, but did you see what Barrichello did to Kimi early on? Did you watch the start multiple times in super slo-mo?

    Why is an offense only an offense when it happens in the final laps? If it won’t be in the early laps, THEN WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE!

    What’s done is done.

      I don’t think Vettel should have been penalized, those 2 guys were doing exaclty what Bernie wants them to do – fight for position instead of settling for safe points

      I haven’t watched the Aussie race start again yet, unfortunatelly
