Malaysian GP - Fourth and sixth rows for Fernando
and Felipe in the Sepang inferno
Sepang, 24 March – The front row for tomorrow’s fourteenth running of the Malaysian Grand Prix is an all-McLaren affair with Lewis Hamilton again on pole in 1.36.219 with Jenson Button (1.36.368) alongside him. Third is Michael Schumacher (1.36.391) in the Mercedes. Fernando Alonso will start from the fourth row, having set the ninth fastest time in 1.37.566, although he is promoted to eighth because fifth placed Kimi Raikkonen (1.36.461) gets a penalty in the Lotus. In the other Ferrari, Felipe Massa went out at the end of Q2 and will start from 12th place, with a time of 1.37.731.
