2011 Malaysian Grand Prix Grid Position

by F1Fan on April 9, 2011

The 2011 Malaysian Grand Prix was almost an exact replica of preceding race in Australia at least for the first two rows of the Grid.

However qualifying in Malaysia produced a full grid with no teams falling foul of the 107% Rule, a remarkable achievement for the HRT given the high speed nature of Sepang after failing to qualify in Australia.

McLaren seems to have closed the performance gap substantially to Red Bull with Sebastian Vettel only managing to claim Pole at the last moment by just a couple of tenths.

So tomorrows race should be pretty exciting especially with the tire wear predicted in the very hot conditions that the MAlaysian Grand Prix is know for.
