A brief Review : Chequered flag Malaysian Grand Prix

The hottest race in formula-1 surely brought some hot results too in 2005 season.
In the starting itself Alonso made a quick start from the grid. Jarno Trulli had some problems in the first corner when both the renault’s sandwitched him in between. But, Trulli managed to hold on to his position.

Both the BAR Honda : Davidson and Jenson Button suffered an engine failure on the opening lap of the race with Minardi’s Friesacher having an engine failure in the next lap. Dramas for Melbourne race winner Fisichella and Mark Webber ,when they both collided with each other at the last corner of Sepang ,when Fisichella tring to defend his position braked late at the corner resulting in retirement of both the drivers. Nick Heidfeld took full advantage of that with managing a place at podium.

But it was not over yet, Raikkonen in his McLaren had suffered a left rear puncture but he managed to move into the pits and get a replacement done and joined the track way behind the pack. Michael Schumacher from 14th place on the grid managed a reasonable of 7th at the end finishing just ahead of Klien in his Red Bull. Rubens Barrichello retired because of some handling problems in the car. After 10 laps of his first pits stop he came back for another stop as he wasn’t happy with the car’s handling. After these 2 stops he retired from the race.

Raikkonen had some chance in the end for finishing in points but Klien managed to have 8th at the end.
