Welcome one and all to the Formula One Podium Picker Challenge Presented by Ekartingnews and the Mitsubishi Keiretsu group of companies. From investment banking to televisions and cars, Aunt Mitsi has you covered.
This week’s race – the Japanese Grand Prix at the might Suzuka Circuit, the only circuit currently in use that can be found in the Pole Position II video game. Will Wettel wrap it all up this weekend? Who knows! But it is starting to look like it’s awfully close. Will NBCSN and DirecTV screw us again? Probably.
Current points: Congratulations to Francois, Tim and Franz for the big points haul last event

Points for the Japanese Grand Prix – Congratulations to Jason, Mike, Juan and Sundar for the big points hauls this week. Bonus cookie to Michael Boone for echoing my thoughts exactly.
