Sidepodcast // All for F1 and F1 for all

Live Event Coverage

Free Practice from Japan // Formula 1 World Championship 2012

Published by Christine

From the bright lights of Singapore, F1 emerges to the figure-of-eight special that is Suzuka. Three practice sessions will give our drivers chance to get a feel for the newly resurfaced track, as well as working out how the tyres will respond to the conditions. Pirelli have brought hard and soft tyres here, which is a change on last year, so as much data as can be collected on the compounds will be useful. We also have the fun of watching drivers working with their teams even though they know they're leaving. Awkward.
