2006 330i  [4.67]
2012 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix

Big news during the two weeks break after Singapore.
Wish Hamilton the best and welcome Perez next season, hope Hamilton can pick up a few more wins with the remaining races.

Bad news for Button, receiving 5 place grid penalty for a gear box change.
Hope the consistent quick pit stop can help him salvage some positions.

Expecting a battle between McLaren and Red Bull again, with Ferrari lurking behind grabbing as much points as possible.

Sad to see MW nearly out of the running (not statistically), its going to take some amazing performances and a bit of luck for him to even have a chance at challenged for the WDC.

That's what I meant. He can qualify on pole, then start 6th. See schumi at Monaco.

Japanese GP - A friend for life

Quote:
Suzuka, 4 October –Today the mystery was solved relating to Tomita, the mysterious and microscopic doll that has been part of Fernando Alonso’s virtual adventures for a while now. Usually seen in places visited by the Spaniard, today this silent friend was in the Scuderia Ferrari garage in Suzuka to witness a memorable meeting between his Japanese “papa” Hideo Baba and Alonso. He was given the name Tomita having been bought in a toyshop in Tokyo. But in fact, his real name is Asbel and he’s the hero of a video game that’s very popular in Japan, called “Tales of Graces” produced by the Bandai company, the third biggest manufacturer of these games in the world. Indeed, Alonso and his little friend will be part of an advertising campaign, which Kaspersky Lab, a world leader in IT security and a Scuderia Ferrari partner since 2010, will launch this November.
