Starting grid: Sepang Grand Prix
Pole- Felipe Massa (Ferrari) 1:35.043

4-Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) 1:36.045

Ferrari starts the season strong as they won the first race of the year and placed their car in pole on the first 2 Grand Prix of this 17-race season. Will Alonso even be able to challenge Massa tomorrow? The chances that Massa eludes the slightly less performant McLaren of Alonso are great. Let's hope a few good on-track battles from the other drivers to liven up the show.
