Hi All

We had a very thrilling race today in Malaysia.

Of the grid, Alonso got level with Massa and dived up the inside into Turn 1. Hamilton came from 4th and overtook Raikkonen, he then went up the inside of Massa, to have a McLaren 1-2. A few laps later Massa tried up Hamilton's inside at Turn 4, Massa ran wide, and Hamilton took back 2nd. The next lap Massa tried it again, but left his braking to late and ran wide, he fell to 5th.

By Lap 5, the order was this
Alonso
Hamilton
Raikkonen
Heidfeld
Massa

On lap 10, Hamilton was keeping Raikkonen at bay, while Alonso pulled 10.2 seconds up the road, the order was Alonso, Hamilton, Raikkonen, Heidfeld, Massa, Kubica, Rosberg, Fisichella, Trulli and Kovalainen in tenth. On lap 11, Rosberg passed Kubica for 6th.

On the 17th lap, Massa pitted from 5th, as did Wurz, Speed and Takuma Sato. On lap 18 Alonso, Raikkonen, Trulli and Davidson, and on lap 19 Ralf Schumacher. Hamilton pitted from the lead on lap 20.

By lap 25, Alonso led Hamilton by 10.8 seconds, and 20 seconds from Raikkonen. On lap 27, Kubica pitted tocahnge a nose. On lap 37, DC retired, when his brake started rubbing on the Sterring Collum. On lap 43, rosberg retired with a Hydralic problem, and smoke coming from the car. On lap 47, Kubica spun into the gravel of Turn 7/8, he brought lots of stone on to the circuit. In the final laps, Raikkonen closed in on Hamilton, but did not overtake. As Alonso crossed the finish line he was very happy, punching the air, and thanking his mechanics for 'a perfect race'. The Ron Dennis told him it was a double celebration, with Hamilton, finishing second.

The final order was this

I have just recievd the latest issue of Scalextric racer magazine. Here I am very dissapointed to find that Scalextric are axing there Sport range. I am looking on ebay, but there seems no rise in price, why? I am going to be bidding on loads of Sport cars, then in 30 years time, they will be worth £1000's! lmfao.gif
