Malaysian GP 2010

Oh what a qualifying session... Ferrari and McLaren are amongst the last 6 cars on the grid with Red Bull, Mercedes and Force India in the top 2 rows...! The weather achieves what the new F1 rules have not and brings excitement to a wet Malaysian GP due to start in less than a few hours! Interesting stats? 5 Germans in the top 8 qualifiers. Schumacher is the highest qualifying world champion in 8th position...with Button, Alonso and Hamilton in 17th, 19th and 20th spot.

I'll be happy if they all finish the way they start this race... It'll lead to a big twist in the championship. But when the circuit is wet, spins, thrills and crashes cannot be far behind; not to mention race strategy calls from the teams and their engineers.

I'm all set for an exciting race with my money on the Red Bulls, Force India and Mercedes. I really want Vettel and Sutil to break their Jinx and start scoring some points that they deserve# And I want my personal favourite, Schumi to show his true potential in his comeback after 3 years. Amongst the sporting greats, Tendulkar has left his mark this year by scoring the only double century in One Day Internationals, Tiger Woods is making a comeback after putting behind some personal issues...

I want Schumi to win another championship in his comeback. Crossing my fingers that it doesn't rain too much to stop the race, but just enough to make the race as unpredictable and exciting as the qualifying session was! Only if wishes were horses...

Go Schumi, Go Vettel, Go Sutil !

# Sutil has made it to Q3 in all races, but points have eluded him till now.
