Thank God for the Internet :) I've made the Oz GPs the last few years and the Japanese GPs since 2004 so here's hoping I can wake up for this year's one

Pointless race from my point of view.

Button is already world champion. Ferrari don´t bring any new parts for the last races and McLaren are back on form.

No tension in the championship and no signs of a good Ferrari result = no interest to watch the race.

Maybe I´ll watch a race replay later, maybe not.


I´m already setting my sights on 2010, Fernando! :shhh:

The last 3 races are pointless :lol:

congratz to Jenson, you´re the most average world champion since Jacques Villeneuve :lol:

But I grant him that championship, he´s a good guy.

But next year Fernando will destroy his opponents, 9 wins :O

I want to watch the race because I'm a diehard fan :n 7 am is better, 6am is just that bit too early

I hope Button wins to become WDC

Jenson is the new WDC :(

because Rubens isnt good under pressure and he will not make great results in the last race (I hope I make wrong predictions :) )

Suzuka 2009 will be similar as Suzuka 2005 and I hope we will have an amazing race and maybe with wet weather

Jean Todt, Ross Brawn, Rory Byrne, Michael Schumacher = DREAM TEAM

Starts at 1AM here.

But for Suzuka, it's worth staying up all night. :)

Malaysia local time:13:00
Great! i will take my lunch infront tv :lol:

So true..Button unofficially has been crowned as WDC know..nothin surprised on the battle between wdc contender for the last three races.
Barrichello is so fragile..he can gain point from button at this race..and he can lose pt for the next race.And so on..mathematically in the end,button still on top of the championship leader :zz:

Just wait and see for the moment button will officially crowned as 2009 WDC.
He deserve the title.

i'd love him to get the title, he deserves it. i think it'd be interesting to see him fight for it, but he's too far ahead now.

He is 15 points ahead, but I dont think Barrichello is going to get that many points in the next 3: in the last 3 races he got 15 (2 at Spa, 10 at Monza, 3 at Singapore)
