    Oh well, it's very clear that there's no overtaking under yellow flags, and to drive with caution.

    Now let's see how many drivers are going to be penalised.

    How come Alonso suddenly seem so 'kia kia' of everything? Overtake under the yellow flag faster go see the stewards.

    No news so far, probably let off with a warning.

    Hope to see the Kid secure the win. I'd very much prefer a 3 horse race

    [EDIT] Spoke too soon. Five drivers given grid penalties, which also means Kimi promoted to 3rd row on the clean side.

    Wow, that's some news. Glad to know that Kimi is not one of the 5 drivers though am hoping PS is... but alas, it is not so. Anyway, good to know that Fisi is somewhere in the midst of things. Looking forward to an interesting race tomorrow.

    The final grid positions after the dust settled:

    Pos Driver Team
    1. Vettel Red Bull-Renault
    2. Trulli Toyota
    3. Hamilton McLaren-Mercedes
    4. Heidfeld BMW-Sauber
    5. Raikkonen Ferrari
    6. Rosberg Williams-Toyota
    7. Kubica BMW-Sauber
    8. Sutil Force India-Mercedes *
    9. Barrichello Brawn-Mercedes *
    10. Alguersuari Toro Rosso-Ferrari
    11. Button Brawn-Mercedes *
    12. Fisichella Ferrari
    13. Kovalainen McLaren-Mercedes **
    14. Buemi Toro Rosso-Ferrari *
    15. Nakajima Williams-Toyota
    16. Grosjean Renault
    17. Alonso Renault *
    18. Liuzzi Force India-Mercedes **
    19. Glock Toyota ***
    20. Webber Red Bull-Renault ***

    * Five-place grid penalty
    ** Five-place grid penalty for changing gearbox
    *** Will use new chassis so will start from the pitlane

    If all goes well, both Pork Slice and Kimi should be able to take advantage of the KERS and overtake Trulli and Heidfeld respectively.

    Fisi is now in the mid-fields, and hopefully by now his thumbs should be very familiar with the KERS button to leapfrog a few places at the start.

    Strong probability for Ferrari to widen the gap for 3rd place WCC against Macca!

    The kid's done it again! Win from pole. Webber ended up 2 laps down.

    Trulli made it 2nd for Toyota, and PS in 3rd, without KERS in the closing laps.

    Rubens finished just ahead of Button in 7th.

    Yeah, the Kid was really in a class of his own!

    Hopefully Trulli's 2nd place podium will nudge Toyota to approve the budget for the 2010 season.

    Ferrari should've signed up the Kid instead of Fernando I-am-number-1-driver Alonso. then we as the Ferrari fans can reminiscent of the old times where we always hear the German/Italian national anthems playing at the end of each race.

    Ferrari will only go for proven driver as their number 1....maybe if Alonos flop next season while Vettel flies... then maybe Ferrari will consider him.

    It was at 1pm SG time.

    Looking at how things shape up for the Driver's championship, Button's bigger rival should be Vettel. Rubens is driving the same car, and he hasn't been competitive recently.

    It might be deja-vu with Vettel pulling off a Kimi2007. But to do that, the Kid needs to win in Brazil with the Brawn duo in the low points.

    Yeah, saw it "live" on Sunday. Looks like the car PS was in broke down, and the car ferrying Alonso stopped to pick him up.

    Wonder if Alonso would do it if he was behind the wheel??

    so, we might be getting to listen to Negaraku being played when Lotus wins a race and should the car be driven by a local dude, it is going to be played twice! how about at bro.....?

    will be only played once lah if both driver and team are from the same country... just like when PS won for McLaren... 'God Save the Queen' only played once.
