Mark Webber described the Suzuka Q3 traffic jam involving his Red Bull, Lewis Hamilton’s McLaren and Michael Schumacher’s Mercedes as an unfortunate accident of timing, but nobody’s fault.

Sauber has used up one of its four curfew exceptions at the Japanese Grand Prix after staff stayed at the track late on Friday to work on the latest car updates. The Swiss team introduced a big development upgrade to its car for the Suzuka event as it bids to hold on to seventh place in the constructors’ championship. And in a bid to make the most of the potential at Kamui Kobayashi’s home event, Sauber elected to use one of its four curfews – with only four races remaining after this weekend’s GP

Bruno Senna is hopeful Renault will be back to its “normal” level of performance in Japan following a difficult race in Singapore. Both Senna and team-mate Vitaly Petrov struggled during the Marina Bay event last week, with Senna finishing in 15th and Petrov in 17th. The Brazilian, however, believes Renault can expect to be back on form thanks to nature of the Suzuka circuit

Jarno Trulli will have switch to the old power steering system that he blamed for his struggles in the first half of the season for this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix. The Italian is unable to use the new system, which was introduced at July’s Hungarian Grand Prix, because it cannot stand up to the steering load created at the Suzuka circuit. “Unfortunately, here I have to use the old specification of power steering, which I don’t like,” Trulli told AUTOSPORT

The FIA has announced that there will be a single DRS zone at the Suzuka circuit for this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix.

Within hours of Franck Montagny, Stephane Sarrazin and Alexander Wurz driving their Peugeot 908 to victory in a 2011 Petit Le Mans that featured 52 cars in six classes, iRacers took part in a 2011 iRacing.com Petit Le Mans Presented by NVIDIA featuring more 320 cars in three classes: HPD ARX01, Corvette C6.R and Ford GT. Like the American Le Mans Series’ event, the iRacing Petit Le Mans Presented by NVIDIA was staged on the 12 turn, 2.54 mile Road Atlanta course and proved a challenging test of speed and endurance for sim racers in all classes as they raced their immediate competition while keeping an eye out for the other classes running at varying speeds. Norbert Sulzer (DE-AT-CH) led Roderic Kreunen (Benelux) and Andrew Slocombe (Florida) home in the [...]

McLaren is still holding out hope that it can delay Red Bull Racing’s world championship party celebrations even longer, as Sebastian Vettel targets clinching his world championship title in Japan. Vettel’s triumph in the Singapore Grand Prix was not enough to secure him the crown, thanks to Jenson Button’s second place finish. And although it is highly unlikely that Button will win every remaining race, with Vettel outside of the points, as is required for Button to win the championship, McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh says he will take satisfaction in simply delaying Red Bull Racing’s crowning moment

When it comes to sim racing, Club England’s David Burnett is far from a one trick pony. Although he is most active in the the Classic Lotus GP series, he owns a very, er, catholic collection of iRacing wheels, from his Lotus 79, Dallara IndyCar and Star Mazda to HPD ARX01, Chevrolet Impala Class B and Corvette C6.R as well as a virtual fleet Fords (or is that a fleet of virtual Fords?): Ford GT, Ford Mustang FR500S and Ford Falcon FG01 V8. But when it comes to road course v oval, there’s no denying that Burnett is a dyed in the wool road racer. In more than two years of iRacing, Burnett has nearly 360 official race starts to his credit, four (4) of which have been on ovals. [...]

Pirelli has nominated the tyre compounds for the Japanese and Korean Grands Prix, and has elected to take different approaches for the two races. With the Suzuka circuit putting high demands on tyres, thanks to fast corners like Spoon and 130R, Pirelli has chosen to bring the medium and soft compounds for that race. For Korea, which is much slower and has a lower-grip surface, Pirelli will take the soft and supersoft tyres – the same nominations used in Monaco, Canada, Hungary and Singapore.

This year’s Japanese Grand Prix could be saved by switching the event from Motegi to Suzuka, according to Honda MotoGP team principal Shuhei Nakamoto. The race was plunged into doubt following the devastating Tsunami and earthquake that hit the north-west of the country in March and forced the race to be postponed from April 24 to October 2

The release of iRacing 2.0 may still be a few weeks away, but iRacers can get a jump on some of the content thanks to iRacing’s first ever Four-for-All. That’s right, four exciting features of iRacing 2.0 –Iowa Speedway and Suzuka International Racing course, the Ford GT and HPD ARX 01c – are now available for pre-sale. That’s one of America’s finest new speedways, a world class road circuit, an iconic GT machine and one of the fastest sports prototypes ever built. In other words, something for everyone! The Ford GT is a modern version of the car that defeated mighty Ferrari at Le Mans in the 1960s. How modern, you ask? The iRacing Ford GT is a digital version of the car that David and Andrea Robertson and David Murry piloted to third [...]

Vitantonio Liuzzi thinks his place at Force India is ‘safe’ for next season, despite speculation suggesting that he will have to move aside for either Nico Hulkenberg or Paul di Resta.

Mark Webber has defended his decision not to tell his Red Bull Racing team about the shoulder injury he suffered prior to the Japanese Grand Prix, insisting that the incident had no impact on his performance in the final races. The Australian revealed in a book he has just published in Australia that he had suffered a fracture to his right shoulder in a mountain bike crash between the Singapore and Japanese races. Webber was leading the world championship at the time, but was ultimately pushed back to third behind Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso

Sony has officially revealed the latest creation from F1 design guru Adrian Newey, with the unveiling of the fantasy racing car that will be included in the Gran Turismo 5 game. The X1 Prototype, designed by Newey in conjunction with Gran Turismo creators Polyphony Digital, was shaken down virtually by Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel at the Suzuka circuit

Fernando Alonso believes Red Bull is still favourite for the Korean GP, although the Ferrari driver reckons its advantage will not be as big as at Suzuka. Sebastian Vettel led team-mate Mark Webber to a commanding one-two in Japan two weeks ago, as the Suzuka circuit proved to be a perfect match for the Red Bull car. Alonso, who finished today’s practice session in second place behind Webber, reckons the nature of the Korean circuit should mean Red Bull is closer, but still quickest.
