2007 FORMULA 1™ Fuji Television Japanese Grand Prix

Image
Overview:
Fuji Speedway is a race track standing in the foothills of Mount Fuji, in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. The circuit will host the F1 Japanese Grand Prix once again in 2007, replacing the Suzuka Circuit.

In 2003 the circuit was closed down to accommodate a major reprofiling of the track, using a new design from Hermann Tilke. The track was reopened on 10 April 2005.
Toyota has now won its bid to host a Grand Prix event, replacing the Suzuka Circuit as host to the Japanese Grand Prix in the 2007 Formula One season. It will become the F1 track with the longest straight of the championship, 1.5 km.

The Fuji circuit is well known to fans of the arcade racing game Pole Position, as cars raced on the circuit in the popular loop. Fuji Speedway was thus the first circuit ever to be featured in a video game.

Grand Prix History
The first Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix, in 1976, was held at the Fuji Speedway, 40 miles west of Yokohama. The race was to become famous for the title decider between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. In monsoon conditions, Lauda, who had survived a near-fatal crash at the German Grand Prix earlier in the season, withdrew from the race stating that his life was more important than the championship. Hunt scored the 3rd position he needed to win the title by the slender margin of one point. Hunt returned the next year to win the 2nd Japanese Grand Prix, but a collision between Gilles Villeneuve and Ronnie Peterson during the race saw Villeneuve's Ferrari somersault into a restricted area, killing a marshal. The race did not reappear on the Formula One calendar for another decade.

It reminds more of Montreal in outline and is also about the same as far as set-ups goes, I think.

And no blown Alonso engines, thank you very much! Image

New track, let's wait and see. I think it's a good track for the calender. Anxious to know which team will have the edge.. McLaren or Ferrari, It's a medium fast track, so I think Ferrari will have the edge. I have posted some vids at the YouTube video thread of a F1 game with a Ferrari and a Spyker on Fuji. Don't know which game, you tell me. $peace

Ferrari track in my opinion. Barring any of the poor reliability we have seen from Ferrari :(

I expect it to be another one-two or either Raikonnen or Massa to be on the top step this race.

From everything I've been told and all the reporters and 'experts' seem to think it'll be a Ferrari track... I really hope it suits both and we have some really good racing between the top 4...

And I agree, no blown engines, this seasons about to get exciting even if it isn't on track we don't need Hamilton running away with the championship just because of a blown engine or two...

the last 1/3 of the track looks a little twisty which could suit the mclarens, and the first half will suit the ferraris?

Todt had said that if McLaren appealed FIA decision, then they would allow drivers to continue fighting, as appeals tend to give out bigger sentences. however, since Mclaren is not appealing, i think that Todt will definately ask Massa To Help kimi %Biggrin
