    Default Suzuka Saturday Qualifying Cancelled

    Moved to Sunday. They're about to get hit with a Typhoon (or a hurricane on our side of the world).

    Windspeeds of 200km/h with tons of water makes things a little dangerous.

    Anyone watch practice last night in the super wet conditions? Pretty crazy stuff!

    Man, just did a search on that storm to see how bad it is... it's a category 5! Florida had it easy!

    so they're doing practice and race in one night? crazy. practice was awsome. that one turn caught everyone out, i think it was the first "S". i don't get why they can't race in 200 kmh winds, its just more downforce

    it was funny watching the camera men try to keep up wit the practice last night...all you could see was fog. they did most of the laps using the on board cameras.... i hope the race goes well though..i know takuma is really going for this one.. a japanese driver in a japanese car would go really well over there!!!

    awesome qualifying session Race is going to kick ass in a couple hours. It was exciting to see Jax qualify so well and beat Alonso's time. Im glad he's giving value to Renault after his so-so performance in China. Everyone was drifting on their dry tires around the damp track. Its going to be a great race for sure!

    i like it because it makes it more of an "event". Its a whole night of F1 instead of staggered over a few days. I end up missing most of the qualifying anyways. This way i can make a point of watching it back to back. But Japan is good because its late on Saturday night so its kind of like prime time for me. Sunday morning at 5am for most races in Europe i just brutal. No way im waking up early on a weekend. I'll catch the replay on Speed later in the evening.

    Sato's drift into the chicane and into provisional pole... PRICELESS!

    Too bad it kept getting dryer and dryer, the times are pretty much meaningless hehe. Interesting race that's for sure!

    Suzuka's sweet cuz it's very similar to Midfield from GT3.

    Haven't followed F1 much this year, has Shumacher won it all yet?
