Qualifying from Japan // Formula 1 World Championship 2013

Published by Christine

As always, it looks like we've got a battle between Mercedes and Red Bull on our hands, with Vettel having the edge. What has been a surprise so far this weekend is the number of off-track excursions the drivers have had. Friday alone saw Jules Bianchi crash out, Kimi Räikkönen end up in the gravel and Sergio Pérez suffer a high-speed bump into the wall. Pastor Maldonado's wheel fell off and he later ended up in the barriers too. Will anyone get through qualifying unscathed?
