2011 Japanese GP Thursday pictures

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.

    Also, Kobayashi is wearing what is likely to be his Japan helmet.
