What time does the race normally start for this one? I seem to remember about 5 - 6AM in the morning last year...

Malaysian Grand Prix on ITV1 and ITV2

Qualifying 1 - Sat 19 March 1320-1505 (ITV1)

Live race - Sun 20 March 0640-0900 (ITV1)
Race rpt - Sun 20 March 1500-1730 (ITV1)

Highlights - Mon 21 March 0015-0115 (ITV1)

Pretty sure the race starts at 7am. Nice that the Qualifying is being shown 7 hours after it happens... :mad: Bloody ITV.

And they're not even showing half of it :rolleyes: - just highlights of the second session, I imagine.

Eh? 1h 45mins of qualifying? That'll be the whole of Q1 - we'll only get highlights of Q2 with the race sunday morning.

does ferraris new car appear this race?

Doubtfull.

Michael Schumacher could use it this race - unlikely though. More likely at the 4th race it'll appear in his mitts.

Rubens could get the new car as early as next race. As he needs to use his engine for 2 races..he finished in Aus so he has to use the engine this weekend and the engines are not swapable.

I meant they were only showing Q1 properly and some highlights of Q2, which worked last time as the first session decided the whole qualifying but I can't imagine it having the same effect in this race - most of the drama will be in the second session, I reckon.

First bit of interesting news from this GP.

FIA close engine loophole

As of this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix, the Formula One teams will have to justify the reasons for a car’s retirement if they wish to use a fresh engine for the following race.

The clarification of the ‘one engine-two weekend’ rule has been made by the FIA after BAR retired both cars on the final lap in Melbourne to take advantage of a regulation loophole allowing any driver not finishing a race to use a new V10 at the next event, even if their previous engine was still race worthy.

“A distinction will now be made between failing to finish and choosing not to finish, the former is normally accidental or beyond the control of the driver while the latter is not,” said the FIA in a statement.

“In order to ensure the purpose of the regulation is fully respected, and unless the reason is completely clear, in future we will require the team of any driver who fails to finish the first of two races to explain the circumstances surrounding the retirement to the Stewards of the meeting.”

Should the stewards decide a retirement was unwarranted, the driver may have to start the following event with the same engine, or accept the normal ten-spot grid penalty if a new one is fitted.

Good good. However this is open to interpretation still....sadly..

aye and I doubt it'd be hard for a driver to purposefully detonate his engine assuming the required software protection is removed.

They can adjust the rev limiter from inside the car - wind it up to 20k and ka-boom!

Think the engines this year are able to withstand around 19250-19500rpm for short amounts of time. Pretty sure the Mercades can do 19000rpm reasonably reliabily - but I wouldn't be surprised if they limit them to 18750rpm to increase lifespan.

Apparently most of the engines are the same power as they were last year if not higher now. :eek: Thats impressive.

Bumping this thread to remind me to update it in the morning.

Oooh...Also Michael Schumacher has kept last races engine so he will probably be using the 2005 car in Bahrain on 1-3/4/2005.

Bahrain is race 3 isn't Flibster????


Yup...thats the next one.

As the life of engines goes up - so does the cost as the testing of them is longer and more difficult to do..also...with the change to 2.4l V8's next year * I think* thats an entirely new engine so the cost will go up again. You can't just chop 2 cylinders of the V10's

FIA = Clueless.

Now converting the txt file I've been sent to meaningfull sensible results from friday free practice.

Stat-tastic! :D Cheers.

The field's times are so mixed up I can't think of any conclusions I can draw from those results.

Are you going to post Q1 times before that session is shown at lunchtime tomorrow?
