A bloke who has been involved in building race cars, and has seen F1 at most tracks for many, many years reckons those Brawns were on rails, and it had nothing to do with diffusers. I have had another look at that nose........... :shock:
I will put my tips in in the morning, but suspect they will be along the lines of:
Pole.....Button.
Button,
Webber,
Barrichello,
Kubica,
Trulli
Alonso
Beumi,
Heidfield.
Vettel is getting close to having his big accident, imho.

I understand Sepang will be all about tyres right?
I may have my picks all backwards :lol:

Winner: Rubens Barrichello - an easy race for the little guy

Second: Kimi Raikkonen - how competitive will Ferrari be when they finish? I bet on second best.

Third: Jarno Trulli - since he isn't be penalised, Jarno's spirits should be high. A good car will not do any harm to his results.

Fourth: Jenson Button - no KERS, possible tyre problems? Brawn cars can't be always in front :D

Fifth: Nick Heidfeld - there's been -again- talks about his seat, he needs to prove himself. BMW is strong.

Sixth: Sebastian Vettel - SV + RBR looks like a good combination

Seventh: Fernando Alonso - I expect Renault to show a good but not outstanding performance. Others are just too good!

Eighth: Nelson Piquet Jr - Nelsinho to complete the picks. When he's at his best he can drive as fast as Alonso.

Pole: Rubens Barrichello - a perfect week-end for him :)

I couldn't place the Williams... They may be a surprise performer on Sunday.
