Vettel leads Red Bull one-two at Sepang

Red Bull desperately needed a victory to get back into the world championship chase, and Sebastian Vettel delivered it in fine style in a dry Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday. And to make things even better, Mark Webber brought the sister car home second.

Vettel snatched the lead at the start from his Australian team mate, and apart from a time when McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton ran second for a while before his tyre stop, they were never seriously challenged.

Polesitter Webber stayed close to Vettel until the stops, but lost two and a half seconds in his tyre stop because of a wheel-gun problem, and finally finished 4.8s behind.

Nico Rosberg was Mercedes GP’s sole finisher in third, after Michael Schumacher retired early on, and he headed home Robert Kubica who scored yet again for Renault. The Pole pushed the German hard, but was never able to challenge seriously.

The race up front wasn’t a repeat of Melbourne’s excitement, but the McLaren and Ferrari drivers provided plenty of thrills as they recovered from their lowly grid positions. Hamilton was 12th by the end of the first lap after starting 20th, but having run second, after staying out on hard rubber until the 30th lap, he was unable to pull an overtaking move on Adrian Sutil once he had switched to soft Bridgestones.

The German kept his head and drove a superb race for Force €ndia to take fifth. Hamilton pushed him very hard, but had to be content with another sixth place ahead of Felipe Massa who was Ferrari’s sole finisher after a feisty battle from the back of the grid.

McLaren’s Jenson Button took eighth, after making an early stop to switch from his soft tyres and having to make the hard replacements last a long time. He was overtaken briefly on the 55th lap by a challenging Fernando Alonso, but as the Ferrari slid wide in Turn One after braking too late Button repassed, and then immediately the Spaniard’s engine broke, dropping him back to a 13th-place finish.

Jaime Alguersuari again drove an excellent race for Toro Rosso and was rewarded with two points for ninth, with Nico Hulkenberg taking the final one for Williams thanks to Alonso’s misfortune.

Toro Rosso’s Sebastien Buemi was 11th from Rubens Barrichello, whose Williams bogged down so badly at the start that Alonso had to make a phenomenal avoidance.

Despite a wing-damaging brush with Heikki Kovalainen’s Lotus, Lucas di Grassi brought his Virgin home 14th and best of the newcomers after a strong drive, while Karun Chandhok also beat the Lotuses on their home ground to bring his HRT home 15th ahead of team mate Bruno Senna. Jarno Trulli was 17th as Lotus’s better finisher, with Kovalainen taking 18th after a long pit stop for mechanical attention.

Vitaly Petrov ran well initially, earning Hamilton a stewards’ warning after the Briton weaved too much keeping him at bay down the pit straight, but retired his Renault with mechanical trouble. Vitantonio Liuzzi also ran well, ahead of the Russian, before his Force €ndia retired. He was classified 20th ahead of Schumacher and Kamui Kobayashi, who also suffered engine trouble in his BMW Sauber.

Virgin’s Timo Glock also failed to finish after a spin which put him into Trulli, spinning the Lotus. And Pedro de la Rosa did not take the start after his BMW Sauber stopped out on the circuit on the grid formation lap.

The result dramatically closes the championship points battle. Massa now leads with 39 from Alonso and Vettel on 37, Button on 35, Hamilton on 31 and Kubica on 30. €n the constructors’ stakes Ferrari still lead with 76, but McLaren now have 66, Red Bull 61, Mercedes 44 and Renault 30.

Sub-kontraktor hospital Shah Alam tuntut hutang RM10j

Sub-kontraktor pembinaan Hospital Shah Alam, GMH Healthcare, telah menghantar surat tuntutan hutang pinjaman berjumlah RM10 juta, kepada kontraktor turnkey pembinaan hospital bernilai RM482 juta itu - Sunshine Fleet.

Sehubungan itu, Sunshine Fleet milik adik Sultan Selangor - Tengku Putri Arafiah Sultan Abd Aziz Shah - berdepan dengan kemungkinan diisytihar muflis kerana didakwa gagal membayar balik hutang tersebut.

Perkembangan terbaru ini mungkin mengakibatkan kelewatan menyiapkan pembinaan hospital tersebut.

GMH telah mengeluarkan notis tuntutan itu, bertarikh 31 Mac mengikut Seksyen 218 Akta Syarikat 1965, kepada Sunshine Fleet milik adik Sultan Selangor, Tengku Putri Arafiah Sultan Abd Aziz Shah.

Seksyen tersebut menyebut bahawa mahamah boleh mengeluarkan perintah penggulungan sekiranya syarikat terbabit gagal membayar hutangnya. Jika perintah itu dikeluarkan, aset syarikat berkenaan akan dirampas dan digunakan untuk membayar hutangnya,

Dalam surat tersebut yang diserahkan kepada Sunshine Fleet Khamis lalu, GMH menuntut syarikat Tengku Arafiah - yang merupakan kontraktor utama projek pembinaan Hospital Shah Alam - membayar jumlah dihutang berkenaan.

Sunshine Fleet dimiliki oleh Tengku Arafiah (70%), anak lelakinya Putera Azamuddin Shah Abdul Aziz (10%), dan bapa saudaranya, Tengku Abdul Samad Shah Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz.

Selepas memenangi kontrak tersebut pada 2007, projek itu disub-kontrak oleh Sunshine Fleet kepada syarikat pembinaan Isyoda. Bagaimanapun Isyoda gagal menyiapkan projek tersebut selepas ia dinyah-senarai dari Bursa Malaysia, dan kini dalam proses diisytiharan muflis.

Projek tersebut kemudiannya disub-kontrak kepada GMH.

GMH mendakwa, selepas ia mengambil alih projek tersebut tahun lalu daripada Isyoda, ia telah membayar RM10 juta bon dengan Jabatan Kerja Raya bagi pihak Sunshine Fleet.

Menurut prosedurnya, bon tersebut perlu dibayar oleh kontraktor turnkey Sunshine Fleet selaku pemegang kontrak utama.

Sunshine Fleet mempunyai tempoh 21 hari dari tarikh menerima surat tersebut, untuk membayar balik RM10 juta atau berdepan dengan tindakan selanjutnya.

Mafrel bidas 'sogokan' pilihan raya

Badan pemantau pilihan raya, Malaysian for Free and Fair Election (Mafrel) membidas tindakan kerajaan menyogok pengundi Hulu Selangor dengan limpahan projek perumahan dan sekolah.

Pengerusi Mafrel, Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh berkata Umno-BN sekali lagi menunjukkan ia tidak menghormati proses pilihan raya demokratik, dan menggesa Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya bertindak tegas terhadap parti itu.

"Ini satu jenis kempen dan kalau berbalik kepada peraturan pilihan raya dia merupakan satu kesalahan peraturan pilihanraya.

“Jadi seharusnya pihak SPR memberikan amaran dan kemudian mungkin mengambil tindakan supaya mengeluarkan arahan supaya tidak ada berlaku apa-apa kempen sekarang sehinggalah apabila hari penamaan calon," katanya dalam satu kenyataan media.

Menurut Mafrel, pihak kerajaan mungkin mendakwa apa yang dilakukan mereka itu dalam rangka menjalankan tanggungjawab sebagai penjawat jawatan kerajaan tetapi hakikatnya ia jelas berunsurkan kempen.

Kempen pilihanraya kecil Hulu Selangor sepatutnya belum boleh dimulakan selagi proses penamaan calon pada 17 April ini belum berlansung.

Namun, semalam Timbalan Perdana Menteri Muhyiddin Yassin mengumumkan bahawa Hulu Selangor akan mendapat empat sekolah baru, dan projek pembinaan banjir bernilai RM2 juta ringgit.

Muhyiddin juga berkata Kementerian Pendidikan sedang mengenalpasti tapak sesuai untuk membina sebuah sekolah aliran Cina.

Hari ini pula Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak mengumumkan projek perumahan baru untuk warga Felda di Gugusan Sungai Dusun.

Projek bernilai RM32 juta ringgit ini membabitkan 2,50 unit, setiap satunya bernilai antara RM42,000 dan RM75,000 ringgit.
