This all makes sense what with Pedro De La Rosa’s massive Burger King backing :P

And common Sakon’s glowing junior formula career including 16 points scored outside of Japan and 2 wins out of 145 career races (both at national level one in GT cars and one in Formula 3), surely lines him up for a permenant seat >.> No journeyman yamamoto will hopefully take his money to touring cars or maybe indy cars and hopefully someone worthwhile will get the seat.

NB One of Journeyman Yamamoto’s wins was in SuperGT which is basically Japanese Touring Cars, except they have some extreme handicap system so its not like a normal junior formula win. His other is a National Formula 3 win which is a blight on an otherwise perfectly abysmal career.
