hopefully Vettel can win the third time in a row there. I would like to hear the team radio after the race, when he celebrates his title :)

I'd seriously laugh if Vettel won the title by retiring and Button not winning

Good to see Suzuka back as the Japanese GP. Vettel will win it no doubt about that, the high speed corners will really suit his car.

The race was in Fuji in 2008.

From this weekends forecast it looks like it's gonna be nice weather at Suzuka.

Detection zone is just after 130R, the DRS zone will be the pit straight.

Unless the Red Bulls have problems, they'll pull out a 1-2 win with Vettel on top! :)
