    Can't wait for the next race and have just had some news to get me even more excited.

    With the new Pirrelli tires in the Malaysian heat they will be falling to pieces in no time which means Hembery (the Pirrelli boss at F1) is expecting four stops from many of the drivers.

    Also Malaysia is notorious for sudden showers which will add to the mayhem, can't wait!

    In that part of the world you get tropical showers everyday for a little while, it doesn't mean necessarily that in the race session it will be wet. The forecast doesn't reflect that

    At this time of the year, it is quite common to get thunderstorms around 5pm local time in Malaysia. Also to add to the pit-stop discussion, anybody think Perez needs to make more than 1 stop on his bridgestones?

    that doesn't mean its gonna rain the whole day :) just been to Malaysia, for the western part of Malaysia (where Sepang is located, about 70 km southwest of KL) its the dry season at the moment. That's also doesn't mean its dry the whole day :D most of the heavy showers fall in the afternoon between 15u and 19u. Then it mostly rains heavily for 1 or 2 hours and then the rain is gone again.

    We just have to wait and see how the weather is on raceday :)
