2010 Malaysian GP – Friday practice – Hamilton on top

2010 Malaysian GP Friday Practice

2010 Malaysian GP - Friday Practice

The Malaysian GP weekend has started with Friday practice. The Mercedes powered cars did well in the morning session. Hamilton was fastest ahead of Rosberg, Button and Schumacher. Two teams used their third drivers in this session – Force India (Paul di Resta) and Lotus (Fairuz Fauzy). It seems to have been good session for all the new teams – lots of laps and no obvious problems.

Lewis Hamilton was the fastest driver out also in the second practice session. Sebastian Vettel in P2 was the only non Mercedes powered car in top 5. Mark Webber retired early in the session following suspected engine failure. Ferrari seemed to be on different program than the other front running teams and only went for lower fuel runs towards the very end of the FP2. No rain during the practice sessions today but there was some between FP1 and FP2.

Here is the final part of the pre-season miniseries of post recapping the changes in Formula One.


There were no drivers changes during the 2008 F1 season (other than the seats lost following the demise of Super Aguri) and the only changes in drivers line up ahead of 2009 were related to the retirement of David Coulthard. Vettel moved from Toro Rosso to Red Bull, Sebastien Buemi took Vettel’s seat at Toro Rosso. Buemi was also the only rookie on the grid of the season opening Australian GP last March. What a difference a year makes…


Official 2010 F1 Entry list – 12 teams only …

FIA published the (almost) final version of 2010 F1 entry list. The most important information the list provides is that there will be only 12 teams on the grid this season. USF1 failed to get ready and FIA decided that it is too late for any other team to enter the championship (see the statement at the end of this post). The entry list also confirms the name change of Campos META team to HRT F1 Team while BMW remains attached to the name of now Ferrari powered Sauber team. The only piece of the puzzle left to filled is the name Bruno Senna’s team mate. The announcement from HRT is expected later today with Indian driver Karun Chandhok said to be the prime candidate for that seat. We can also see that the ex-BAR, ex-Honda, ex-Brawn GP Brackley based Mercedes GP will now race under German flag. So in case McLaren or Mercedes GP drivers win the race we will only hear one national anthem …
