I’ve only just got around to reading this thread, and as a Japan resident, I’ve got to say thank you for the kind thoughts, and concern mentioned above.
Its been a scary couple of weeks, I’m in Tokyo, so life is very very good compared to the people up North, but still it is definitely stressful always waiting for the next big aftershock to hit.
It was actually a big relief this weekend getting to see the race and qualifying, even though it ended badly for Kamui and Mark (I’m from Australia….) it just seemed like life was getting a little back to normal.
It was also great to see all the messages of support on the cars. It made the news here, and hopefully gave some people a lift.
Hopefully the rest of 2011 is much less eventful!
