Strangely, out of his 80 races thus far in his Formula One career, he has only finished in the points on eight occasions.

Qualifying

 A spectacular lights show was looming over the horizon on Saturday, slowly eclipsing the much needed light with a white wall of torrential rain, steadily approaching Sepang. A dark curtain of cloud hung over the track and kept the paddock guessing when the heavens were going to open up.
