Japan 2009 - Qualifying // There's a championship on the cards, but lots of work to be done before

Published by Christine

There is more chance of overtaking at Suzuka than Singapore but that doesn't mean that qualifying isn't as super important as ever.

Weather update

Supposedly, the rain should be drying up by now and we should be looking for the teams to head out on their dry tyre allocations for the first time of the weekend. Fun!

One to watch

Jenson Button has it all to do this weekend if he wants to secure the drivers championship, and it could work out in his favour if he qualifies really well.

Predictions please

Who will get the precious pole position? Will we see any major incidents? Will there be any big names dropping out in early sessions? Will it rain at all?
