Qualification is one thing - racing quite another. What a great start to the new F1 season. Plenty of action, surprising performance and even proper racing!
Maclaren have come out fighting and the rest must be wondering how to stop them before they cruise to an unassailable lead in the early fly-away races. An immaculate drive from Jenson Button. And hat's off to Kimi Raikkonen, after his very suspect qualidfication performance he demonstrated he can still race at the top. The Lotus looks a great package.
Unluckiest drive of the day must go to Pastor Maldonado who richly deserved to record early points for a rejuvenated Williams team. Perez in the Sauber was another star.
Ferrari had a so-so race and need to find some quick improvements or they may even find themselves outside the top 4 teams.
Bring on Malaysia next week. Can't wait.
