Wide open spaces at Sepang – as Webber found to his cost when Vettel thrust his Red Bull up the inside at the first corner last year

Red Bull will delay a decision on KERS till after Friday practice – but McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton has warned them they’ll need it

Watch for a better showing from Mercedes, who were quick in Melbourne but saw both Rosberg and Schumacher retire after early skirmishes

Weather is always a key component – some teams got it wrong last year, notably in qualifying, where Webber was the only man to run Q3 on intermediates – and was rewarded with the second pole position of his F1 career

Can Sergio Perez replicate his brilliant debut form from Albert Park – and this time earn some points for Sauber? They decided not to contest their Australian disqualification.
