Qualifying in Australia was a mixed-up surprise, if you discount the supremely fast Red Bull at the front. Heidfeld dropped out early, Barrichello couldn't control his Williams, and Petrov did really well. Can Sepang offer up the same kind of intrigue?

With humid conditions, and the potential for rain at any moment, the Pirelli tyres will be the key to who does will during the next hour or so.
