It's Sebastian Vettel on top again, as Red Bull start their second race in a row from pole position. Webber will be directly behind, having qualified third, with the McLaren boys on the opposite side of the grid.

We should see some increased DRS action, with such a massive home straight alongside an incredibly wide track. Malaysia has never been too short on overtaking as it is, so what might we see today?

The action will begin at 16:00 local time, which is 9am UK time. The Factbyte Factbox will begin an hour before at 8am, which handily coincides with the BBC's pre-show coverage.
