F1 Game 2015 - Malaysia

Same deal as before, guess the top ten finishers, pole person and fastest lapper. Then answer the bonus question: how many different teams will finish in the points?

Deadline: Friday 27 March 2359 GMT
Skyhook

Any chance of the results from the last race before this race happens?

Just makes it a bit more fun.

If the cars are as reliable as they were in Australia you could be an unlikely winner!
Big Blue

Woooooo-hooooooooo.

A German in a Ferrari wins again. As a real measure of the Ferrari, Kimi was 4th after a lap with a blown tyre.

Game on.

Thought you might say that! Though I also thought you were also a Vettel hater? (or has that all changed now he's in a red car? )

Alonso really makes great career decisions doesn't he...
Big Blue

I was at Vettel's first race win - when he had a Ferrari engine - in 2008. Now he's in a red car he can do what he likes.

I read an article recently about Alonso's career errors - trying to get No 1 status at McLaren, refusing a 2 year deal at Red Bull because he wanted 1 and now this: exercising an option to leave Ferrari.

Even funnier: RBR beaten by Toro Rosso. But it's the engine, Newey, isn't it?
Martin

Excellent race, plenty of overtaking and great to see Ferrari win, even though I'm a Hamilton fan and I don't like Vettel.
gooner

Alonso keeps being hailed as the best pound for pound driver on the grid but he's not been competitive for almost 8 years. That's surely not just the teams he's raced for, it's about the contribution he makes to the development of the car. Ferrari were floundering with him yet as soon as Vettel turns up, the car is transformed into a winner with his help. A great driver is one who doesn't just find a cars flaws (and all new F1 cars have them) but is able to tell the team what to do about them. Lewis and Seb are great at that, I don't think Alonso is. We've been waiting a long time for his 3rd championship and as an Arsenal fan I know how all the talk about potential gets a bit wearing after a while!

Fair play to Vettel though, that was a great race today and he beat the Mercs hands down. I think Mercs decision to waste a set of option tyres in Q1 yesterday probably made the difference but only just, if Lewis has a set of softer tyres for his final stint he might of caught Vettel, but he still would have had to pass him!
Humphrey The Pug

Rosbergs whole demeanour is that of a beaten man.

I struggle with Vettel; I both like him and dislike him, when he was running away with it at RBR he became a bit self assured and arrogant but I'm really pleased that he won today and it clearly meant a lot to him.

Makes you wonder if he was driving badly last year on purpose, so that he could enable a performance clause in his RBR contract so he could leave and go to Ferrari.

As for Alonso, well he's the master of his own destiny, I dislike him and his decisions are of his own making, I can't see him winning another championship and if he was that good then he would have built up Ferrari to be winners; like Schumacher did.

I hope this shuts up Horner and Marko, it appears the problems are a bit closer to home.
Martin

Seeing and hearing EJ on the podium reminded me why I'm so pleased to have SKY.
Alf McQueef

I like some variety - and was pleased to see Vettel win in a Ferrari. I got a bit bored of him winning in Red Bulls. Nice guy and a great driver. I have always been a Kimi fan as well, he had a great drive, though his usual luck.

Alonso must be gutted. I won't be losing any sleep over that.

I've very reluctantly got my hand in pocket and upgraded to the sports package as I was sick of shite BBC coverage.

This being the same Alonso that got close to winning the title twice at Ferrari, despite a slower car?  He's made poor choices though, of that there is no doubt.

Vettel's influence on the new Ferraris is, I would suggest, absolutely minimal at this stage.  The team has clearly been undergoing massive change for a very long time and the design and development process is a long one.

That said, good to see Ferrari at the front again, even though I think Mercedes made poor tyre choices and will be stronger in future than they appeared in Malaysia.

Thankfully I get the F1 channel without having to pay for the Sports Package because I had it from the start when it was included in the HD pack, but I fully expect them to charge me for it in the future....

James Allison worked with Raikkonen at Lotus, both Raikkonen and Vettel have similar driving styles.

What annoys me is that I used to, but when I moved they changed my contract and started a new one.

I reckon the first effect Vettel had on Ferrari was calming them down a bit. He's uber-level headed compared to Alonso, who seems intent on playing politics and seeking number one status despite his ability to drive the car well. Sgr Well-Arrived is also a cool customer. The team is looking like that "German-driver-English-technical-Latin-Team-Leader" one that monstered the turn of the century.

On Alonso I think we'll look back at titles wasted by factors not associated with driving: some his fault; some Ferrari's and one in particular Romain-fucking-Grosjean's fault 100%.

Although Eddie Jordan went off on one (about Vettel last year) about how driving styles make no difference and good drivers can adapt, there is a lot of truth in this. Different natural styles suit different balance, tyre, and engine characteristics for sure. If Kimi and Vettel both pull in the same direction and Ferrari can continue to develop, we may see a battle yet - even if tyre wear is the typical Mercedes issue, and we won't see egg-frying track temps all year.

I don't know just how much Alonso turned up to drive, but I heard several comments over the week-end on the box that Vettel turns up at the factory and works hard with the designers, engineers etc to get them motivated to provide him with a winning car.  Not in the Schumacher-had-a-flat-at-the-factory and never went home extent of working hours, but presumably Seb is there for many more hours each week than Alonso was
Skyhook

I wonder how many of those designers were secretly thinking "leave me alone, I know what I'm doing".

Ferrari's engine has got a lot better, so they are a lot faster. The End.

Red Bull's chassis had got a lot worse, so they are a lot slower... possibly even slower than Toro Rosso who use the same Renault engine.
The End

Ferrari have replaced this guy:



with this one:



If they don't win, bad things will happen..
