Pat Symonds, executive director of engineering: "Fernando experienced a gearbox problem and he was unable to use second gear, which is quite a penalty around Sepang. In view of the new gearbox regulations, we decided that, even though this was a test gearbox, we would leave it on and continue running to see what happened. Before the end of the session the gearbox failed completely.

From the friday quotes.

thanks ;)

mstar - try replacing the text 'malaysiagp' in the middle of the link with 'australiagp'. Thats one way that definitely works.

Looks to me as if Ferrari will lead Mclaren with Alonso and Trulli battling with the BMW's for best of the rest. No pace yet from Williams or Honda.

There is a search link top right of the main page.

Use it and search for: " timing"
(in your case use "australia timing" and it should be one of the top search results).

Same here.

I think the reports that said they found something big in their final test in Jerez were right.


if big is being 6th-7th team, then yes.

Otherwise, running Q2 preps when everyone is doing longer stints, does not make you fast.

Wishful thinking. I am predicting a Mclaren 1-2 front row.

Tomorrow is looking set to be wet or damp.....

Shall be good to see if Vettel is as good in the wet even without TC. I think the pecking order among the drivers worth in the wet will be a bit different now.

Well just think eh, if your guys have already shown they can bin it 4 times between them in one race, they'll be all over the place if it's wet :D

I was thinking just the other way around, but yeah the 4 drivers will be fighting amongst themselves.

I think it will be KR and LH on the front row, but it's too close to say who will be on pole.

Personally I think it is strange that Ferrari (or any team) can collect a DNF and points in the same race. And of course keep their points while changing their engines. I don't think that's right.


Yeah, that struck me too but why aren't the other teams protesting fear?

Ferrari are clearly ahead here. They could have been in Melbourne too.

It's powerful calipers meets powerful enginebraking and I think the brake disc can't take the stress from both forces. The TC moderated the forces. That's what I think but I'm not a technician.
