Japan’s only F1 driver Kamui Kobayashi put on a show for fans at the track on Thursday as he took to the track in a box car built to look like his Sauber F1 racer.

Vitantonio Liuzzi also made a gesture to the Japanese fans, wearing a special helmet in memory of those who died in the tsunami earlier this year.

Here are pictures from Thursday at Suzuka.

  1. They are surely running some sort of Mechanical or electronical help I think it is the PSS “Push start system”.

  2. Has nobody noticed that Vettel looks positively girlish in the seventh photo?


  3. Liking the new gallery layout. Alonso needs a bleedin haircut.

    1. @Spawinte You sound just like his mother, when she told him to have a shave during the pre-season!

  4. Very strong contender for helmet-of-the-season there from Liuzzi.
