For your consideration
Here are some of the drivers who impressed me during the Malaysian Grand Prix weekend:
Sebastian Vettel – Steely stuff in qualifying to snatch back pole position from Lewis Hamilton.
Nick Heidfeld – Not knocked off his stride by his troubles in Australia or Renault’s problems in practice.
Kamui Kobayashi – Fought hard and clean as ever, and made a two-stop strategy work.
Paul di Resta – Showing up very well against his more experienced team mate.
Heikki Kovalainen – Clearly getting the most out of the T128 at the moment.
