Another shuffle of the deck for the new 2012 formula one season sees McLaren come up trumps again and occupying the front row for tomorrow’s Malaysian Grand Prix. Schuie takes 3rd in a nice change for Brawn’s Mercedes, and Mark Webber joins him on the second row, with Vettel sulking down in 6th. Nicely done by Lewis Hamilton on pole but can he hold off Jenson on the start to keep his place in the race this time ? A quick word for Laughing Boy, Kimi Raikonnen who got a superb 5th on the grid for Lotus-Renault, with team-mate Grosjean in 7th. Lotus should be able to mix it up tomorrow. Ferrari still can’t quite get there and Massa must be a tad twitchy at the moment. Should be a great race. Bring it !
