Actually, the first two Japanese Grands Prix were in 1976 and 1977 at Fuji, after which Japan was dropped from the F1 schedule until 1987. The 1976 race at Fuji is particularly notable, as it decided the World Championship in favor of James Hunt. It was also Mario Andretti’s first F1 win for Lotus.

Wonder why Vettel was 2.5 seconds faster then the field, yet Webber was not faster also.

KERS problem for Vettel, wind picked up during final 90 secs or so of P3.

1) Webber
2) Vettel
3) Hamilton

Good job Mark, one of my fav drivers. Still a Red Bull lockout of the front-row.
