Malaysia 2009 - Free Practice 2 // Ninety more minutes of action await the drivers in Sepang

Published by Christine

All kinds of excitement in FP1, with both Renault's having some fun in the gravel, a lot of drivers running wide and locking up, both Toyota's spinning, and Kimi's fire extinguisher going off. What more could FP2 hold?

Weather update

It looks as though things are getting hot and hotter, with humidity rising as well. This will usually build up into a cloud of rain, so the question is raised whether FP2 will be precipitation free. This will reflect on what might happen in the race itself on Sunday.

One to watch

Nico Rosberg pulled out all the stops in the dying moments of FP1 to go top of the timesheets, with Nakajima second. Nico topped all three practice sessions in Australia, but it didn't reflect as well in the race itself. I wonder if he's going to repeat the experience here in Malaysia.

Predictions please

Will we see any more fire extinguishers going off accidentally? Will Rosberg be able to make it five practice sessions out of five? Will Alonso feel up to any more laps? And if he does, will the Renault be able to keep out of the gravel?
