Formula One 2013: Sepang Qualifying

Lotus’ first place finish last week was quite a surprise.  Underperforming according to their divers are McLaren and Williams.

Sepang is very hot and the tires are going off quickly.  On offer thia week are the harder 2 compounds, Hards and Mediums.  It may not matter as part of practice was run on Inters because rain is always likely.  It is possible, however, that if there isn’t any damp that teams could be scrambling to find a set that’s still good enough to race on at the end; Sepang is the longest race and is very fast.  Apparently the Mediums are about a second faster per lap and only good for about 10 laps, the Hards last slightly longer at 15.

Qualifying will repeat at 1 pm with race coverage starting tomorrow at 3:30 am.  It’s also the first IndyCar race this season with Qualifying from St. Petersburg at 2:30 pm, all on NBC Sports.
