2011 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix

Suzuka, I can say its "home" of RB6 and RB7, heaven of the bulls.
Vettel is just one point away to be the youngest Double World Champion, this is where it will happen!

Don't forget to login to your GT5 account, if Vettel wins the 2011 World Champion in Suzuka. Polyphony will give out a free X2010 to ALL GT5 players one week after the race concluded.

Anyone want to guess where will the DRS zone will be?
My best "educated guess" will be the start/finish straight.
I wish its the straight leads to the casino triangle chicane, but FIA will definitely ban it because there's 130R sitting in between.

This was five days after the Singapore GP where all the teams shipped their chassis and equipment to Japan, Nagoya Chubu Centrair Airport.

I agree, probably Start/Finish straight.

Just like to add that I LOVE this track! One of the few modern-era circuits that is a true driver's track. Not to mention all the incredible moments here...from the Senna/Prost battles to the Schumacher/Hakkinen fights to Alonso and Raikkonen battling it out in '05; this place is steeped in history.

Awesome track with great figure of 8, flowing curves and challenging Degner 1 and 2 (always caught me off guard), and "flat out if you dare" 130R.

Not much foreign (anywhere but Europe) tracks has such deep history, the only one beside this is Interlagos.

But with HRT on the grid you never know

We need a rainy race to add some intrigue and pure chance to what otherwise is almost a foregone conclusion.
