Seating Areas recommended by F1 Sokuho editorial staff!

The 2019 F1 Japanese Grand Prix will be held soon. In particular, we really want to witness the race actions including first of all that of Red Bull Honda team, which is doing well this season. Have you already decided the seat to watch? If you haven't decided yet, how about the following seating areas that you still have time to purchase?
So, we will let you know what special seating areas F1 Sokuho recommends.
1.A1 area (at the Main Straight)
1.A1 area (at the Main Straight)

1.A1 area (at the Main Straight)

This is a seating area giving a view from the pit lane exit to the Main Straight and the First and Second Curves. At the pit lane exit, you can frequently watch the machines that come out from the pit lane right in front of you during the free practice session and the reconnaissance laps before the race. This is also an area where you can quickly check if there are additional sponsor names or a new modification in details of the machines for the Japanese GP. Of course, you can enjoy watching not only the cars running out to the track from the pit lane right in front of you, but also the dynamic action of the cars trying to improve their lap times while getting a tow from the cars in front of them going into the First Curve as well as overtaking scenes at over 300km/h. In addition, as the GP Square is only a short walk away, you can easily go there between the sessions. Overall, it can be said that it is a seating area that allows you to have a very luxurious Grand Prix experience overall.
 
2. A2 temporary seating area (at the Main Straight end)
2. A2 temporary seating area (at the Main Straight end)

2. A2 temporary seating area (at the Main Straight end)

A2 temporary seating area where you can watch the battles from the Main Straight to the First Curve, right in front of you. It can be expected that F1 machines, which have increased in speed dramatically in recent years, will break the lap record at Suzuka Circuit again this year. The Main Straight end may be the point where you can best experience the speed of the latest F1 machines. In the qualifying laps or the so-called "hammer time", the section where cars can shave the most time off their laps is the part from the First Curve to the S-curve. From this area, you should be able to fully enjoy the dynamic power of the cars rushing into the First Curve when the F1 drivers get serious. In addition, the line that the driver takes to enter the First Curve is a point where the driver's habit is easily revealed, and this is also a point where the individuality in driving of the selected 20 F1 drivers is easy to understand. Since most of the overtaking scenes in the Japanese GP can be seen at the approach to the First Curve, it can be said that this is the point where you can witness all those scenes in detail at the closest point.
 
3. B1 area (at the First and Second Curves)
3. B1 area (at the First and Second Curves)

3. B1 area (at the First and Second Curves)

This is a seating area where you can get an overview of the actions of cars entering the First Curve and then see them accelerate from the Second Curve to enter the S-Curve. This area provides you with a very broad view; at the First Curve side, you can watch the cars running at 335km/h (data at the time of Qualifying Sessions in 2017) to enter the First Curve at full throttle, and at the Second Curve side you can watch the driver's fine control in accelerating from the Second Curve to approach the S-Curve. And it can be said that this is the best area where you can observe the performance of the F1 cars. You can watch quite clearly the differences in the lines that the cars take, their speed and their behavior depending on the downforce and power output of the cars. The approach towards the Second Curve is one of the most difficult points to drive through in the Suzuka Circuit, and this is a recommended point where you can watch the driving skill of F1 drivers.
 
4. R area (at the Last Curve)
4. R area (at the Last Curve)

4. R area (at the Last Curve)

This is an area where you can watch the cars in full acceleration right in front of you from the Hitachi Automotive Systems Chicane to the Main Straight, as mentioned, along with the First Curve, one of the crucial points of the Circuit. It is a point where you can feel the tremendous power of the modern F1 cars that is said to have reached 1000 horsepower. Since the DRS zone is from the Last Curve to the Main Straight, you can watch the opening and closing of the DRS of the F1 cars. As the Last Curve has a descent toward the pit lane entrance, and sometimes the cars will be seen to lose balance in their attitude because of the full power of the F1 engine, as was the case when Timo Glock in the Toyota car crashed heavily there in 2009. This is an unexpectedly exciting curve. This year, too, you will be able to feel the tremendous power output of the F1 power unit right in front of you from this area. It is about a few minutes’ walk from the GP Square to this area, so this is an area where you can enjoy the race comfortably.
