Factors that could affect out come of the race

1) Who's in the car?: Just like Spa and Silverstone, Suzuka is a driver's track. It helps to have an accomplished driver behind the wheel of one's car in order to win here.2) Fast corners: Given the rate of degredation of the Pirelli tyres at Spa on an aggresively set up car like the Red Bull it is safe to assume that would be a factor in this race as well. Because boy does Suzuka have fast corners.3) Making a point: One point is all Sebastian Vettel needs to wrap up this year's drivers' world championship. A tenth place finish will do it for him and if he drives conservatively it could leave the door open for someone else to win.4) Power rules: With a lot of elevation changes including an uphill run to the very fast 130R corner, having a powerful engine is an advantage at Suzuka. Expect the Mercedes powered cars to score well in this department.
