Japanese GP: covering angles

There’s been plenty of opportunity to discuss who’s fault everything was from the weekend, but over at Formula1.com they’ve put some video together from all the angles. It won’t change your mind, but it’s certainly worth a watch. The first corner from the inside is a particularly cool shot.

Japanese GP: Lewis loses it

Lewis Hamilton must have felt like it was a case of history repeating as he sat in his car, facing the wrong way on the road as the entire F1 field stormed past him, as, like last year, he threw away what looked like another step towards the championship title.

Japanese GP: Bourdais incident

I’m still not convinced that Sebastien Bourdais should have been given a 25-second penalty for being driven into by another car. Surely as he was racing for position the onus wasn’t on him to let Massa through. Has this ever happened before? (Be quick, FOM are taking these clips down very fast this morning!):

Japanese GP: Quali

After this morning’s last gasp effort by Heikki Kovalainen to land himself third spot on the grid for tomorrow’s grand prix, Lewis Hamilton will certainly owe him a few pints if, come the end of the season, Lewis finds himself as world champion.

Japanese GP: preview

The problem for the Fuji Speedway is that Suzuka is in the same country. For as long as that magnificent track exists, Fuji will remain in Suzuka’s shadow. It was with great reluctance that F1 moved last year but it’s fair to say that Fuji has not been as bad as everyone expected.
