China 2009 - The race // Can Sebastian Vettel turn pole position into victory?

Published by Christine

With Vettel on pole position, we'll be looking for a fantastic race from start to finish? Will we get that though? There's only one way to find out and that's stay tuned!

Weather update

The weather forecasts have all changed, and it looks as though there's a 50/50 chance of showers during the day in Shanghai. I rather hope it doesn't rain because we could do with a nice straight forward dry race, especially with such a fascinating grid.

One to watch

Fernando Alonso is definitely the one to watch today, as his front row grid slot means he should get a good start. He is super light, but has no KERS, so the first corner will be important. Then it will depend on whether he can scamper away as to whether his light strategy will work out for him.

Predictions please

Will it rain? Who will win? Will the Brawn GP boys claw back their victorious form? Will Buemi pick up any points? Can Alonso get a good start? These questions and more need to be answered.
