Catching up with all the action from Free Practice 3 and Qualifying in Malaysia. No rain as promised, but plenty of other incidents to keep us entertained.

Free Practice 3

A lot of out of place times with the humidity playing tricks on the tarmac. Heidfeld placed a really good lap at the time of the timesheets, whilst Alonso and Hamilton appeared to be struggling.


Most of qualifying was taken up with playing the will it/won't it game with regards to rain. For the record, it didn't. Also notably, the incident with both McLarens impeding Heidfeld and Alonso and their subsequent penalty.


McLaren accept the penalty they've been given, Heidfeld's happy and we imagine Trulli is the same. Button struggled on his tyres but Honda find their qualifying placement agreeable, whilst Ferrari are just happy to have had a trouble-free day.
