Sepang - Race results (2)

James Calado held off the initial attack from his team mate Esteban Gutiérrez into turn 1 to lead the Malaysian sprint race from lights to flag.
Britain's James Calado proved for a second time in his very short GP2 career to date that he knows just how to make the best use of pole position, riding his good fortune to a flawless first GP2 championship victory in the Malaysian GP2 sprint race at Sepang, to match the win he took in last year's GP2 Final exhibition weekend in similar fashion.

smboyce, thanks for the comnemt.I imagine like in most workplaces, BMW Sauber had a business as usual approach until the very last minute. BMW (the manufacturer)'s decision seems sudden, but my guess is that the BMW Sauber team was only aware of something distant before this week, but were issued with an ultimatum of sorts for the Hungarian GP? It's possible. I just think in the light of recent events, some of what BMW did at Hungary seems to make more sense. Of course, I could always be reading too much into it!
