F1 - Japanese GP @ Suzuka

Well, the final race of the season is here and both the WDC and WCC are still up for grabs.

Can Michael Schumacher score the required 1 point to become a six-time world champion, or will Kimi spoil his plans?

Ferrari are 3 points ahead of Williams in the WCC. Juan Pablo and Ralf will be trying to put the disappointment of the US GP behind them as they try to win the first WCC for WIlliams since 1997.

Also, in a shock announcement, Jacques Villeneuve will not be competing in Japan. I certainly hope that this is not the end of his F1 career.

Anyway, practice is currently underway. I wish a safe weekend to everybody.

Go Juan Pablo!!!

Go Ralf!!!

Go Williams!!!

Vamos Kimi Even though you're probably going to get fucked again by the Shumis might as well give it your best shot . . . who knows what could happen in the end

Jenson Button had a massive engine failure, so he only completed 9 laps.

Montoya had technical problems and also completed only 9 laps.

Once again, Renault and Toyota have both cars in the top 10. However, I think that we'll have to wait until tomorrow to get a better idea of which teams will be strong.

BTW, I expect Takuma Sato to perform well here in front of his home crowd.

This was apparently his decision following the announcement that his contract was not to be renewed for 2004. Villeneuve's manager, Craig Pollock phoned BAR team chairman, David Richards on Thursday to say the Canadian didn't want to compete.
The problem is: no team who might want to sign him would not be able to afford his £11m ($19m) asking fee.

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.
