After a rather disappointing start to the season for Ferrari, Fernando Alonso managed to win the Malaysian Grand Prix and get himself to the top of the table. In a rain disrupted race, Alonso put all his driving skills into play and a well timed pit stop managed to get him onto the lead which he held onto till the end of the race.
Massa’s disappointing run continues with the Brazilian finishing 16th in the other Ferrari. The Malaysian win doesn’t mean that the Ferrari’s have a pace on par with that of the Red Bull’s and there is a lot of work still to do if Ferrari has to be competitive this season. A bonus victory like this always helps though.
The Lotus team is showing promise of pace with Raikkonen finishing 5th in Malaysia. The Mercedes team seems to have the pace but they are struggling for results in the race. Mclaren is leading the Constructors table with 55 points while Ferrari is 3rd with 35 points, all of which have been garnered by Alonso.
