The Japanese Grand Prix is this Sunday, so here’s a quick run of the circuit courtesy of Red Bull Renault’s Mark Webber and the Red Bull F1 simulator. Webber needs to be this consistent in qualifying and in Sunday’s race, as he goes into the weekend leading the driver’s championship by a slim 11 points. The title is still up for grabs between Webber (with 202 points), Fernando Alonso (191 points), Lewis Hamilton (182 points), Sebastian Vettel (181 points) and Jenson Button (177 points).
Only four races remain in the 2010 F1 season, so things should get plenty interesting from this point forward. I think the championship will come down to Webber versus Alonso, but both Hamilton and Vettel remain viable wild cards. Both have to drive flawless races for the remainder of the season, while Webber and Alonso just need consistency. If I was a betting man, I’d put my money down on Fernando Alonso.
