6 races to go and everything to play for as we head to Suzuka.. an old classic that drivers love.
Top teams should be on a 3 stopper, given that the fuel effect is quite high and an avg pit stop time is comparitively low.

Mclaren's pace will be one to watch out for, as a result of the controversy over wings. They are clearly favorites to win if they remain unaffected.

The DRS zone has been shortened by 20 mts this year, dont think this was really necessary given that Turn 1 is fast right hander with limited overtaking opputunities

The other great thing about Suzuka is, that one need not wait the entire day for the action, it all begins right after breakfast!

Teams pass wing test - reports Autosport

Whether or not, McLaren/RBR reverted to old specs is something we will see during the race.

Vettel on pole again. Webber P2
Button P3 but drops to P8, because of gearbox penalty.
Kobayashi P4
Followed by Grosjean, Perez, Alonso, Kimi, Lewis and Hulk in that order.

The bitter Divorce is showing its colors very clearly, Did anyone get to hear the Radio Conversation of Hamilton..? That showed how much damage Lewis has made to himself.

Michael was struggling again in the car that has behaved like a DONKEY in the guise of a HORSE. Sadly Mercedes cars have been the worst in the last 2 years.

Anyways, Vettel is stronger and certainly i support him to fight for the WDC this year, a 3rd time in succession.

Redbull 1-2 upfront. Should be a walk in the park for them tomorrow with the McLarens and Alonso further behind.

Ferrari have been having problems with their wind tunnel calibration apparently, resulting in updates not working as they should on track. They had better get their act together, with Alonso's fast dwindling championship lead.

The last few races should be interesting, too bad Hamilton is almost out of the championship race, a 3 horse race would have been more fun.

Vettel has been called for impeding Alonso in Q3. There are speculations that he MAY be given a 5 place grid penalty. That will put him behind Alonso.

Quick update: Vettel keeps pole.

It wasnt a conversation, it was more of a one time interaction that people are reading a little too much into,if you ask me.
Go to Mclaren's website to read the transcripts(of sorts) from the the 3 sessions.

Suzuka has been RB's territory for the 3rd consecutive season. Should be an easy RB 1-2 tomorrow putting Alonso in the spot for the WDC against Vettel

Lets see how it goes tomorrow!

It looked liked he missed the braking again. Gets 10 sec stop and go penalty. In one of the interview he said he will help Raikkonen to win the championship. May be this is his way!
