There are still aspects of the track that remain a mystery to even the most prepared in the paddock, but ING set us straight on the details as they rate this circuit against the best of the rest in the illustrious ING Race Index.

So join Sidepodcast as we take a leap into the great unknown for this year's Japanese Grand Prix.

  • I have no complains about the time difference, only 1 hour ahead of me :-)

    I have a feeling that the track should be better than 15 out 17 ... No idea how does ING Index comes to those numbers ...

    Beatiful beginning to the video ... The fact is, that part of Japan is as beautiful as the mood of the video suggests :-) Even in the rain ...

    Judging from the first practice, it did not take Ferraris long to get used to the new track, and Sutil seems to remember something from his racing days there :-)

  • Nice preview, but why do you look like you've just come from school??
