8 weekends to go for this championship.
That's 6 races in 8 weeks which is a record number of races in a short 2 month span for F1!

I hope you enjoy this F1 Fest as much as I do with 3 sets of back to back races Japan/Korea,India/Abu Derby,USA/Brazil.

Suzuka would have to be the best circuit on the calender with a bit of everything on the track.

Long enough straights,Fast turns and twisting segments,slower turns,sweeping turns,hairpin,1 chicane and the fact that the proportion between left and right hand turns is much more equal than any other circuit in F1 due to the figure 8 layout.

I can only see Ferrari doing better than in Singapore as Suzuka suits their car much better.
If Alonso got a podium in Singapore then I would be very confident for a Win in Japan where the Ferrari F2012 excels more on faster circuits.

I said it before ...I hope Alonso doesn't get any more DNF !!!...nooooooooooo !!!

Damned Kimi !!!!...he didn't back up where he didn't have enough space, he touched Alonso twice and out of the track with a flat and then later he pushed Checo Perez out of the track also !!... YES KIMI ... YES ..IT SHOWS YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT THE OTHER DRIVERS !!!

Grrrrrr... chau .. I'll go back to sleep at my 3,30 am

What a shame but I think Alonso got a bit too Nudgee with Iceman who melted anyway today.
Shit if Massa beat both the Maccas and came 2nd imagine what Alonso could have done!The car might not be that bad afterall
A DNF but he still leads the WDC.What a mighty battle ahead.Ferrari better come up with some good new bits.

Well done Kobayashi with the podium!

crazy race, Kimi should have backed off on Alonso. At least Kimi got a taste of his own medicine with Lewis when he came out the pits. Vettel got lucky but lets face it the Japanese track suits the red bull the best out of all the races on the calendar. Lets see their form next week. Happy for Massa and Kobayashi

4Mil, Monty and G....Fernando's hold on the championship is in serious trouble if Ferrari doesn't bring strong updates for Korea next weekend. It seems as though Red Bull have developed a double DRS system which enabled Vettel to fly at Suzuka. Lewis might be able to offer some challenge to Vettel, which can help Alonso maintain his lead in the championship.

Happy for Koby to gain his first podium at home!

Anytime newey has legal controlled air flow he sure knows how to use it well. Though Vettel didnt need DDRS sitting in the front. Can they use while passing backmarkers? Something else has helped red bull in terms of speed. Either way i expect Alonso to fight his heart out. This war isnt over lol
