While certain F1 racers such as Sebastian Vettel and even Michael Schumacher are feeling optimistic about winning races or finishing on the podium, Narain Karthikeyan and Vitantonio Liuzzi are optimistic that they will actually qualify to race. Surprisingly, Colin Kolles and Jose Roman Carabante are not saying too much. Looks like they have left the talking to the drivers. The pit lane at the Sepang Circuit must be a happy place with optimisms at different levels coming to the forefront. Hopefully, Team Lotus will not have its car totaled by one Karun Chandok during any of its practice sessions. After all they would be distraught if they had one of their cars destroyed in front of the home crowd.
