Japanese Grand Prix

Japanese
Replacing the legendary Suzuka circuit for the Japanese Grand Prix from 2007, the Fuji Speedway has a tough act to follow. But with Mount Fuji as a backdrop, a multimillion-dollar refurbishment by track design guru Hermann Tilke and an overtaking-friendly 1.5-kilometre straight, Japan's new Grand Prix circuit is more than ready to take on the challenge.
