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.
