The Formula One races are happening right here in Kuala Lumpur. Felipe Massa continued his momentum from late last season by taking pole position for Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix. Massa, who led both of Friday's practices in a Ferrari, had a qualifying time of 1 minute, 35.043 seconds Saturday for his fourth career pole and first this season. The Brazilian ended the 2006 season with two straight poles.
The weather has been great. It's extremely hot, in fact, and it was reported that the track temperature which went up to 51°C in the afternoon forced the drivers to go slower.
