The Formula 1 circus arrives to Japan. McLaren, Ferrari and an optimistic Renault face a long straight at Fuji. The key of the race will be to achieve the top speed. Hamilton smiles behind the mask.
Lewis Hamilton has the advantage, the skill and the car. Last season he couldn't manage the situation, but he is more experienced now. Felipe Massa could be the faster driver in Japan, if it is not raining. The Brazilian often hesitates on wet track. On board of second Ferrari, Kimi Räikkönen should silence the gossips of the paddock and the stands with a great race at last. He could fly with his red car, but he is showing a worrying lack of concentration.
Last guest to the Formula 1 Japanese party is Fernando Alonso. He won the last race in Singapore and F28 counts with aerodynamic upgrades. But if Renault has showed a weak point until now is a powerless engine. Fernando should drive through Fuji long straight with lower settings in order to push at full-throttle during 17 seconds, but F28 will be tricky in turns and applying brakes then.
My tip is Hamilton as winner
