Ferraris, McLaren near back of Malaysia grid

Ferraris, McLaren near back of Malaysia grid

The Ferrari and McLaren cars will start from near the back of the grid for the Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix after a very wet qualifying session.
The third and final session of qualifying on Saturday was red flagged when a thunderstorm and heavy rain lashed the track, and was to be indefinitely delayed until conditions improved.
The first two sessions of qualifying were completed, with the Ferraris of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa and the McLarens of Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton not making it through to Q3.
Those teams gambled by not going out early in the first session of qualifying, believing conditions would improve, but by the time they emerged, the track was even wetter and they could not match the early times.
