I admit that one day I would very much like to be with Ferrari. It’s the best team in the history of Formula One, and it is clear that those who go with them, are part of history.
The rain threatened to be a factor this afternoon in qualifying for the Malaysian Grand Prix but never materialised as expected allowing Ferrari to show its raw speed around the 5.543km Sepang circuit. Felipe Massa claimed pole position, the tenth of his career, with a lap almost half a second clear of team-mate Kimi Raikkonen. The F2008 has run flawlessly today and the team dominated qualifying leaving Heikki Kovalainen and Lewis Hamilton very much second best on the second row of the grid.#.
The International Court of Appeal said in a statement the case was rejected because McLaren’s appeal is inadmissable. The results of the Interlagos race will remain unchanged, confirming Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen as the 2007 world champion. Ferrari CEO Jean Todt further added:
The decision of the ICA finally brings to an end a very intense season, both on and off the track. Today, a final and desperate attempt to change the result obtained on the track was rejected. Now, all our efforts are focused on preparing for next season.#.
What else left for Mclaren to loose this season?
