Suzuka 2022 Rewinds & Remembering Jules Bianchi
It’s race weekend once again. Welcome along to the Japanese Grand Prix here in the land of the rising sun. This is the final stop in Asia before the troop head to Qatar. This is also Yuki Tsunoda’s home race! He made his home race debut last season, the first Japanese driver since Kamui Kobayashi in 2014. After getting pulled over at Lap 1 in last week’s Singapore GP, let’s hope he rejuvenates and gets a shot at the podium this weekend.
It’s Lights Out and Away We Go, Straight into Suzuka!
What an enormous race it was in Singapore! For the first time in 2023, we've got a non-Red Bull win! The Lion City did not disappoint and certainly gave us few dramatic encounters. From George Russell's accidental detour into Tuas Checkpoint, the return of the monitor lizard (FIA should hire this reptile as marshal, given its consistent appearance in Singapore GP every season!) to all the impeding incidents that kept the Stewards' deck busy on Qualifying night. For someone who was craving for adrenaline rush, I guess Singapore gave me a feast!

I didn't take any pictures on the day of your funeral. In fact, I have given stern instructions to everyone around to not snap any pictures and post it in social media or their WhatsApp group. I loathed the idea of this. I wanted your funeral to be intimate. But I wish I had taken one. Maybe a picture of your hands. It was the only thing that looked like you on that day, hands that looked alive and did not feel frozen by the dry ice.
