I am looking forward to watching the race this week end. Sepang is a very demanding circuit for F.1 machinery. Lots of variables are put under stress: engines (oops power units I should say), brakes, physical conditions of the drivers and the threat from the local weather, always around the corner.However my favorite topic to follow in this Malaysian Grand Prix will be the performance of the young drivers of late generation: Ricciardo, Bottas, Magnussen and Kvyat. They did extremely well in Australia and showed no fear on the day of their real debut, giving some food for thoughts to their more experienced colleagues. I remember the first time of Mika Hakkinen in the McLaren alongside Ayrton Senna at Estoril in 1993, I was there. The young Finn qualified better than the three times brazilian world champion in his debut in a competitive car and from that moment onwards he let the motor sport world know that a star was born. And so, how many stars are born in the 2014 F.1 firmament? Ricciardo? My pick for sure and Magnussen to follow. It is good to see McLaren putting so much faith into young drivers: Hakkinen, Hamilton, Magnussen….Ron Dennis has never been too shy to offer a seat to youngsters who deserved to drive in the top formula and he got his money back when they eventually took the world title. Another Team who should be respected for such a strategic attitude is Red Bull/Dr. Marko for their insight in spotting Vettel and Ricciardo: well done ! And Ferrari?…..I believe they missed an opportunity not giving Hulkenberg a proper go, but never say never….
