    @pezlo2013 – Thanks! And congrats on the podium and a great haul of points.

    As mentioned in the race, not our best race, but a lot of data gathering for the rest of the year. I’m sure we’ll definitely see some more exciting races such as this, this season.

    Wagner doing a good job to get on the front row in these conditions, and well placed to capitalise on the hards with any luck.

    Congrats to Lopez and Harding on the first pole. Interesting to see if they can convert it with DS Mathershaw not having the best of qualifying sessions.

    Very pleased with practice, as we seem to be more consistently closer to the front running pace than most other teams. Let’s hope this continues into the rest of the weekend.

    @blockwall2 – Are you sure we’ve won every Malaysian GP bar this year? Because I’m sure Mathershaw won in 2014

    A race to forget. Starting with what I still feel was an unjust penalty, which put Ruiz in a difficult position during the race.

    Clearly the Honda engine is lacking some power, but I’m confident we can make up the deficit soon.

    How about we also investigate Ellington for leaving Ruiz no room coming out of turn 2, pushing him on to the grass, and then the Lopez taking part of his front wing off.

    Also @bradley13 I don’t know if I’m the only one, but your mic has been incredibly quiet this season.

    @pezlo2013 -Basing that off of one race and one practice session is ludicrous. A lot will change.

    @robocat @mathers

    Whilst I can’t remember exactly what my defense was, I’ll try to reiterate my points.
    Firstly, I don’t believe it was an overly aggressive move. Ruiz had proved that the overtake was possible prior to that in the race, and this time, just happened to touch Simon on the outside. It also wasn’t conducive to Ruiz’ race either, because he ended up losing 5th place because of it, in my opinion.
    I’d also like to add that without the terrible backmarkers, causing Ruiz to spin in the first corner, he wouldn’t have even been in this position, and I don’t see anyone calling them out for arguably much worse driving.

    Well, I did comment, but as per usual, the site didn’t process it immediately. Brilliant.

    SPOILER

    @formula-1 Congratulations on a great start to the season!

    I think, again, we are as expected, so I’m not unhappy with that result. I do think that 5th was in our grasp, but for the backmarkers.

    It certainly shows how a good strategy can make up for outright pace, so I’m sure there will be more surprises, at least in the first half.

    @sirspuddington – Little bit unreasonable to say that you’re disappointed in us for falling back a little when we’ve just own three titles on the trot, and still manage to be a solid 4th compared to a team who won races at the end of the year, and now are at the back ;)

    I think our position is to be expected after the dramas of last season, unfortunately.

    I also think that people have a general idea of how to improve now, which means there will be for more shake ups from season to season, I think.

    Still, it’s only practice, and a lot can happen in the races. I expect to gain more ground back there, as well as when we begin the European season.

    @mathers – People do shorten Red Bull to RB, Mercedes to Merc, Mclaren to Macca and Force India to FI though ;)

    @mathers – Absolutely fantastic. Easily my favourite.
