After being so excited for the season to start, I only got to watch the race this morning. Naturally, I already knew the results, which spoils it some for me, but glad I finally had the chance to see it.

So pleased that Lotus seem to be picking up where they ended 2012 getting stronger. Kimi's tire strategy was perfect because, unlike several of his competitors cars, his E21 really does seem able to be driven fast without destroying the rubber. In his hands, anyway.

Sucks for Hulkenberg that his Australia bad luck has worsened at Sauber (and sucks for me since I'd picked him in a fantasy league) but hopefully that's his allotment of car troubles for the next while. Oh, and was a solid return for Sutil. Thought that deserved a mention.

Now if McLaren will just sort out their mess of a car then I'll be really happy...

Webber edged out Kimi in FP1 over in Malaysia

Peeked at the Malaysian 2nd practice times, Bianchi above Bottas and 1.9 seconds above his teammate, 1.2 above the Caterham. Bit closer in FP1, but surreal to see gaps that big anywhere.

^Bianchi is proving good. Interesting times. Raikkonen looks VERY good it must be said and it looks close between he, the Red Bulls and Ferrari. Grosjean doesn't look at the races, Mercedes may be challenged by Force India and McLaren, although they're still off the pace don't appear quite as awful. In fact, intermediate times pegged Button as the quickest so things may be looking up for them.

Definitely some interesting gaps opening up.

I have time to myself today so I'm planning to watch some of the practice when it airs here in about an hour (no way I'm getting up to watch practice live during the night).

In the dry, I believe the qualifying would of been much more interesting. The Lotus doesn't seem great on wet tyres, neither do the Force Indias & the Mercs. And they were storming round the track until the rain came. It's unfortunate for them, and an unfortunate spectacle. It'll all be back down to tyre preservation with Vettel leading the pack, rather than pure pace, if it was Rosberg, or Raikkonen, or Hamilton, that had taken pole like their earlier pace suggested.

It does seem that there are 5 teams close to each other, which is great, especially given that it may be 6 by Barcelona with McLaren joining the fun. They do seem to have found something which is helping them. They still have ride issues though.

No doubt McLaren will find something, but it won't be enough to win at least 2-3 races. May get lucky on the one. Think their fans should be worried, Button isn't going to be the driver to go out and find the missing ingredient to the car, and drive it past its capabillities.

At the start of the year, had the potential to be 8 teams all vying for podiums. But Sauber & Williams don't seem to have made progression. I do hope Hulkenberg makes good steps with them though.

^ I disagree on Button there, purely because he already is beating that car's capabilities. It's clear McLaren aren't one of the top 5 cars but Button is mixing it up on the bottom end of the top 10 pretty much every session this season. So he's definitely doing a very good job with the shed he has. Perez isn't doing too bad either. Keeping Button honest if a few tenths off. Cars that are almost completely based around Button tend to end up being pretty good too so I wouldn't write them off.

As for Sauber and Williams, Sauber I can't read them at the minute. It's blindingly obvious Williams have fallen right back, with Bianchi troubling Bottas. With Sauber, Hulkenberg has had such bad luck I'm not sure where the car truly is. He's the real baseline for it rather than Gutierrez. Stumbling at the start of the season isn't such a great idea though.

In my opinion, can't really identify if Button is finding that time, since Perez may not of found his groove. They were seperated by 0.2s in the dry, but a second in the wet. I think Button is a solid driver, but nothing groundbreaking, a team player more than a team leader. This season is his time to prove he is an exceptional driver.

Gutierrez looked good in qualy 1, never got to see his speed in the qualy 2 due to the rain. But I agree with Hulkenberg being the one to show where the car is, but judging by times, they've gone backwards. They'll be lucky to get anywhere near a nice % of the points they got last year. Very lucky.
