I know hasty judgements are generally faulty but Andre is racing for money, not for love.

Ok, the 'Lotterer isn't good anymore' comment was daft enough, but let's not pretend that you, me, or anyone other than Lotterer himself know why he's racing.

Although he openly says he doesn't like the track, Lotterer came out of Okayama with a dominant win and a third place. He is now leading the championship.
Good results for Sekiguchi, with a second place and a victory in race 2, and for the rookies Cassidy, Rosenqvist and Gasly, as they scored their first points.
Terrible weekend for Kaz Nakajima, though.

I really wish they would stop doing double races at Okayama.

Mardenborough? I can't say that i have watched any of the series this year but why is he disappointing, he is off the mark, more to the point he is ahead of Gasly after three races?

I don't know the meaning of the Article 4.6.1).
Up to now, only fuel restrictor was being loaded on NRE (Nippon Race Engine) engine.
This may be the intention to admit introduction of air restrictor engine in addition to NRE engine.

(It is obligatory to install a fuel flow restriction system that is submitted to and approved by the JAF.): official Ja to En translation by JAF

2018

Will new air restrictor-equipped engine be introduced in Super Formula?

According to jp.motorsport.com,
Akira Kurashita (JRP) says that there is a possibility that air restrictor might replace fuel restrictor in 2019.
If so, current overtake system doesn't work. So DRS might be introduced in 2019.
2018 technical regulations change is to test DRS in 2018.

Nojiri took the pole, with a new lap record. First pole position for Honda since last September.

Pechito Lopez>>

I've never heard his rumor in Japan.
We need to wait until season end test days.
Personally, I think that Honda wants world class drivers.
