Disappointed: Day 2 @ Japanese GP

Last night after day 1 at the Japanese Grand Prix my friend Carlos and I were planning our trip for today and I had the opportunity to sleep in and miss P3 but come for qualifying only but I refused because I wanted to go and see all 3 days in full.

But was I disappointed when I woke up to cloudy skies, then when I got to Suzuka Circuit station it was sprinkling, as we started walking to the Circuit it got heavier and heavier and by the time we got to our seats it was coming down pretty full on. It was cold and wet, very wet, my jeans, shoes and socks got completely drenched and it wasn't fun, especially because there were only the 2 Torro Rosso cars on the track.

Lunch came and by this time it was pouring down by the bucket load but I stayed positive and hoped to enjoy the rest of my day by watching the qualifying rounds. Again I was let down because it got delayed twice for 30 minutes each time and I was freezing and by 3pm my friend Carlos and I just couldn't take it anymore and left. Luckily we didn't wait because it got cancelled and rescheduled for tomorrow morning which means I have to wake up even earlier now.

To make up for it though I went through all of my photos from yesterday's first and second practice sessions so here they are.


I think these were 2 of the most photogenic cars on the day for some reason.

The driver I'm hoping to win the race and championship; Mark Webber.

A couple of fellow Aussie fans, the didn't seem very enthusiastic when I yelled out "GO MARK WEBBER!"

A true Ferrari fan, this girl was wearing a Kimono which had the Ferrari emblem stitched onto her Kimono and as you can see a picture of the Ferrari F1 car on the back.

A Ferrari fan in the making?

More Aussie support!
