If SV gets the 2011 world champion, just sign in to PSN and load up your GT5 within 7 days after the race. You will automatically gift a Red Bull X2010, just like your paint chips and birthday car.

Well... as long as it's not gifted to him on a silver platter, I'll be satisfied. I was very impressed with his aggression at Monza, it would be great to see him seal the championship in that manner!

I think he balanced well this season, given with a good car, and he was able to make the most out of it. He can afford to balance reliability, pace, and aggression.

If he's not in the position this Sunday, I'm sure he will make a calculated risk and make the most point (well, he just need one) from where his grid position will be. (I cannot see where else he will be except pole, c'mon, its Suzuka+RB7+Vettel, its like a sure win formula almost)...

I know, I'm being wishful. It's funny that even though Suzuka is no longer last on the calendar, it is once again going to decide the season's champion. It's almost like fate

Looks like the RedBulls are running a shallower rear wing compare to other teams...
i.e. so much more downforce from the diffusor.....amazing!!!

Vettel just crashed out on the last lap on Friday Practice 1!!!
A bit mistake on Degner one and on the gravel, a bit tap on the front wing.

Way too early to read anything into the times, man. No idea what the respective fuel loads were, etc.

Exactly, they might even testing aero-parts possibly for next season? lol...

Very likely he's testing high fuel load and see how fast he can go in early stages of the race, that can gauge the tire degradation and pace to work out the strategy...

Yup. I was watching an old video of Suzuka, 130R looked much scarier back in the day. I remember there was a big accident there, but I don't recall when it was changed
