F1 2010 Malaysia

The Malaysian Grand Prix looked like it'd be interesting, with torrential rain predicted, but in the end it stayed dry. Qualifying looked like it would throw up an intriguing race, with problems in qualification putting the 'faster' cars at the back of the grid. After some initial passing, Hamilton passed eight cars on the first lap, it all felt rather processional, with the first three on the grid finishing third, first and second (well done, Vettel). Kubica made up two places to reach fourth, passing Hulkenberg (who finished 10th) and Sutil (finished 6th).

Adrian Sutil for Force India picked up ten points, finishing in 6th place (having been 4th on the grid).

Michael Schumacher retired after 9 laps. Last year's champion, Jenson Button picked up 4 points, finishing in 8th place.
