Editor’s note: Lightning can strike any time, any place . . . but you have to be there for it to strike you. Ask iRacer Conor Daly. After an off-season which, among other things, saw him test an IndyCar for AJ Foyt Racing, test a GP2 car for the new Hilmer Motorsports outfit, win the MRF Challenge and prepare himself for a third season of GP3, he found himself on a plane to Malaysia with the somewhat murky prospects of a ride in the GP2 race at the Malaysian Grand Prix. And that was just the start of a whirlwind for Daly as, shortly after writing this blog, he was named to drive one of AJ Foyt Racing’s entries in the 2013 Indianapolis 500. More on that next time.

Red Bull dominated practice and qualifying in Melbourne , only to slip to third and sixth places in the race as it struggled to make the Pirelli tyres last as long as rivals. Vettel denied that he had thought Melbourne victory was guaranteed after practice and qualifying, but acknowledged the tyre situation came as a surprise that Red Bull has had to react to.

Ferrari is capable of everything that Lotus achieved in the Australian Grand Prix, reckons Fernando Alonso.

Valentino Rossi believes he will be hard-pressed to beat Yamaha team-mate Jorge Lorenzo and Honda duo Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez on the basis of MotoGP testing so far. Seven-time champion Rossi was fourth quickest on the final day of this week’s test in Malaysia. Although he has been close to the frontrunning pace throughout the winter, Rossi now feels he will have to dig very deep to beat last year’s title combatants Lorenzo and Pedrosa, and rising star Marquez
