McLaren could be back in within the next 2-3 races if that's the case. we all know they have the money and staff to make it happen.
Brawn should dominate Sepang without a problem because of the raw speed they have. They weren't pushing 100% in Oz. Both Brawn's were 2 secs quicker in qualifying trim than the race. The end of either the 1st or 2nd stint could've been much quicker with low fuel levels and the hard tires still working pretty well.
Reliability is still the biggest mystery as they continue to add mileage. we don't really know how well any of the teams' reliability is this yr since they are limited to even less engines now.
JB is also a wet weather specialist! wet or dry, I predict at least JB winning and possibly Ruben's sealing p2 or p3.
