Unreliability problems are brought to the fore in the heat and humidity of Malaysia. After our preview yesterday, it's time to catch up with Free Practice 1 and 2.
A major smash for Coulthard causes a red flag and some concern about the car, as Webber also suffers reliability problems. Vettel, Sutil and Räikkönen also faced issues throughout the session.
Coulthard sat the session out, whilst everyone else experimented with their tyres. Bourdais didn't even manage to complete his outlap, facing Ferrari engine problems.
The stewards are clearly worried about the safety of the Red Bull car and are demanding a technical report before they decide to ban it from the race. Also, Super Aguri are feeling their lack of preparation throughout the winter.
