Post-qualifying F1 car weights in Japan

The front-running drivers on the grid were those running light after the FIA published the post-qualifying weights for the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka.

Adrian Sutil, who had been fourth quickest before a five-place grid penalty, was the lightest driver at 650kg, followed by Jarno Trulli, Lewis Hamilton and pole-man Sebastian Vettel – with the quarter all set to run a short first stint in Sunday's race.

Jenson Button qualified with the fifth lightest car but is starting from twelfth after also securing a penalty and is 2 kilos lighter than team-mate Rubens Barrichello – with the pair set to run similar strategies.

fair play to Vettel, regardless of the final grid his lap was awesome. Button again disappointing. Just think had Vettel not had all the mechanical problems how much closer he'd be and if he had just let Kubica go in Melbourne...
