    From Autosport

    Lotus has been forced to relocate itself in the Sepang paddock after a fire destroyed its hospitality unit overnight.

    In the early hours of Saturday morning, a suspected electrical fault in a fridge caused a fire that eventually destroyed the team's hospitality unit and kitchen facilities.

    AUTOSPORT understands that the team was able to save some of its drivers' kits - including overalls and boots - from the private rooms of Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean. One of Raikkonen's spare helmets was destroyed.

    With its unit now out of action, Lotus has been forced to move itself next to Marussia at the bottom end of the Sepang paddock - although its marketing and hospitality staff have been left without any equipment.

    The team's engineering operation has been unaffected, as it is based in a separate unit attached to the pit building, and the fire will not have any impact on its track efforts.

    Lotus issued a statement on Saturday morning that said: "The team asks for forgiveness for certain personnel who have entered the fire-damaged facility as they will be rather smoke-fragranced today. Many team members may also look rather hungry for a short time."
    I think Kimi has been overfilling the fridge with Magnums

    On a more serious note, lucky they got the fire contained, not much room to play with in the paddock and who knows what could have happened.

    Honestly I think that with the current performance level, having one car in Q3 would be a very good result. But let's hope for a miracle.

    The large rain cell located in the West is not moving. No rain expected for the beginning of Q1, but rain cells could grow at any time.

    Teams thinking maybe rain that is happening a couple kilometres away from the track, could come here, later on.

    Did anyone have any speed trap times from practice? How much slower are we on the straights compared to everybody else?

    Morning everyone
    Meanwhile, it either says something or just nothing that Alonso, Schumacher and Raikkonen have reputedly spared a F1 podium on five occasions and Fernando has stood on the top step on every occasion. He's F1's first among equals. (PG)
