Of Blue skies and Malaysia Formula One Grand Prix Results

Today promises to be another glorious sunshiny day, that is, if you enjoy days of blue skies and hot, hot sun. Here, see what I mean.. clear blue sky with just a smattering of white clouds that look like wisps of candy floss floating by.

Yes, the weather in Kuala Lumpur can be like this at best.

Yesterday was just as nice, probably more suited for Formula One races as the sun was milder thus cooler for an outdoor sport like F1 racing, I read that under hot conditions, drivers endure cockpit temperatures above 40°C. In the process, they could even lose about 3kg in weight.

Okay, who won in the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix in Sepang? It's a 1-2 finish for Red Bull with Sebastian Vettel (Ger) taking first place, his first win of the season after disappointing finishes in the previous two races.

Mark Webber (Aus) came in second while Nico Rosberg (Ger) of Mercedes made it to the podium on third. Lotus made it to 17th with Jarno Trulli while his partner, Heikki Kovalainen, was not classified being 10 laps behind. Michael Schumacher was also not classified, retiring at lap 9.

Next race: Shanghai (Apr 16 - 18).
