A bit of J-Pop to get in the mood.

 

 

And food.

Someone's keen. I prefer it when people wait until lap 15 before they create a race thread. If this race is **** and Lewis doesn't win, I'll blame you.

 15 laps in?  Never seen that ever here... no idea what you are on about.   Lewis won't win,  guaranteed.

I was exaggerating a little...

Besides, I've changed my mind because Bottas will win. To finish first, first you must start from Finland.
That's also not likely to happen, but I said it. And what?

(Well, strange things have happened in F1 before, like Herbert P1 and Trulli P2 at the Nürburgring in 1999 or the Gasly/Sainz/Stroll podium at Monza in 2020...)

Kayo puts up the replays fairly quickly so once the season moves out of our time zone you'll enjoy watching the next day too.

 

Finally home from a wedding, very tired, but glad that it's a 3pm race. If it was in Europe I'd be asleep already.

Some random pre-race thoughts, who's the best Japanese driver post 2000s? Kobayashi or Sato or even Nakajima?

I'll just be hoping for a rocket start by Perez (and Norris and Sainz).

Maybe a Mexico repeat but then with Perez just sticking with it.

Track 40

Massive curve ball, warmest it's been all weekend.

McLaren and Mercedes have two sets of Hards, which I think will be an advantage.

Max didn’t sound too confident in the car this weekend. I’m sure he’ll be competitive but not certain he’ll win today.

If the car is more understeery than usual then he Checo could go well here.

Who said so? All the forecasts showed already on Thursday that the risk of rain on Sunday is 0%.

 

Anyway, hoping for an entertaining race. Suzuka tends to be a bit processional in dry.

Deg is going to be so high though, if you don't get the passes done quickly you'll be so dead in the water.
