A superb circuit!

Suzuka have always reminded me of 2 things

The legend...Loved the way he handles the throttle through the corners!



The ICEMAN... overtaking Fisi on the outside, late braking on the dirty side of the track! He starts from 17th and wins here.

Red bulls are dominating practice one and two.
Hamilton damaged his suspension in practice one
As usual looking forward to race day.

To me this is what comes to mind when i think of susuka japan. What a race that was, not just this overtaking but the entire race! You can see the pedigree of kubica from this clip alone. No wonder he is a highly rated driver today.

Redbulls are breezing it in Suzuka so far.
Kubica is in good form so far, and Ferrari seem to be the next best.
McLaren struggling with Hamilton crashing in FP1 and again limited running in FP2. If Hamilton doesn't come good this race, his chances are pretty much over. He need to stay in touch with Webber and finish ahead of Alonso.

Well, that was Fuji, not Suzuka.
But a great race nevertheless! Full of action from start to finish.
Alonso's crash, Vettel crashing into Webber while behind safety car, Kimi overtaking Coulthard and the Massa-Kubica duel in the end!

I stand corrected . Whats the weather like for the weekend? and chance of rain?

Hey guys when you post comments it would be great if we just write down who we support as well i think. Let me start first:

Alonso (ferrari)

Who do u support Silentengine? am guessing ferrari since you drive a Fiat?

I don't really care who wins as long as none of the Top 5 contendors DNF. I really want the championship to go down to the wire with more contenders. As of current standings


Webber: 202 points
Alonso: 191
Hamilton: 182
Vettel: 181
Button: 177

On that basis, and looking at Red Bull's Practice speed:
I would like hypothetically,
1. Vettel (181+25) = 206
2. Alonso (191+18) = 209
3. Button (177+15) = 192
4. Webber (202+12) = 214
5. Hamilton (182+10) (don't know how fast McLaren can recover his car after the crash) = 192

That would make the remaining three races real nail biters.

I have been a Kimi fan throughout. So by default was a McLaren fan. Was supporting Ferrari while Kimi was there.
Out of the current top 5, i want Webber to win. If not, then Hamilton.

If we have a normal race, I think McLarens are going to struggle. Vettel and Webber will finish 1-2. Ferrari will be faster than McLarens and Kubica might jump them too. So we might see one or two drivers dropping off here, if Webber has a good race.

However, if it's a wet race, anything can happen.

Due to heavy rain, saturday qualifying has been cancelled.
It will either be postponed to sunday morning or
the grid positions will be based on championship points.
A real bummer for me since I planned my saturday according to the Qualifying timings.

But the positive side of things were:
1. Gary Anderson explaining dry/wet setup difference and why F1 cars don't work in heavy rain.
2. Bored F1 crew prepared tiny boats and competed against each other in a boat race like school kids. RedBullRacing designed the best boat.

If there is no qualifying session tomorrow, I believe the grid will be decided by entry number (i.e car number), not championship points.

So it will be Button, Hamilton, Schumacher, Rosberg etc. in that order.

Its highly unlikely that we'll get to the point because the weather for tomorrow is light rain in the morning which should be okay.

That way the Mclarens will get an undeserved front row start! I am sure Whitmarsh will be praying for heavy rain

Not quite. Hamilton has changed his gearbox, which puts him five places down

I doubt if other teams agree to that. Somehow starting in championship order sounds more fair. Is there any precedent to either of this?
I hope it doesn't come to that

Also there are reports that Hamilton will have 5-place grid penalty, which if true, will further dent his chances.

Here's the regulations.

36.2
b) If more than one driver fails to set a time...

d) Any driver who incurs a penalty under Article 28.4(a)...

If more than one driver falls into a single category in b) or d) above they will be arranged on the grid in numerical order.
