Forgiveness is for Christians. It has no place on a F1 internet website!!!!

The situation with engines:

All those drivers that didn't cross the finish line are entitled to a fresh engine without incurring a penalty. Those are:

- Ide
- Villeneuve
- Fisichella
- Albers

Any other driver that changes their engine for Malaysia will be penalised 10 places on the grid for each change.

What I think is unfair is that DC's engine blew only seconds after he crossed the line, and he gets penalized... :evil:

Both Coulthard (Red Bull Racing) and Massa (Ferrari) will have their engines changed for Malaysia thus incurring a 10 place penalty on the grid.

Neither driver scored points in Bahrain!
