Lucky Strike B*A*R Honda's Jenson Button will line up on the 5th row of the grid for the start of this afternoon's 56-lap Malaysian Grand Prix having secured the 9th fastest aggregated time after this morning's final qualifying session.

After missing valuable running in yesterday's free practice, Jenson set-up was largely based on the data sourced from Anthony's programme. He encountered some oversteer during his decisive lap but is confident in the car's race pace and his chances of a points finish.

Anthony Davidson embarked on race day with a solid final qualifying lap, which confirmed his confidence in the car's race set-up. His aggregated time puts him on the 8th row of the grid in 15th place.

This was Anthony's first taste of the new final qualifying format and a further day of acclimatisation to the track and weather conditions helped him rise to the challenge. He is feeling comfortable in the car and looking forward to his race debut with the B*A*R Honda team.
