Sebastian Buemi in his Toro Rosso just lost it in the exact same place, and probably for the exact same reason. He backed it into the tire barrier a little more gently, but he has yet to re-emerge.
As I say that, Heikki Kovaleininininnie just took a wild ride... at the Degner Curve. This might prove interesting during the race.
There's another typhoon near the Philippines, headed towards Japan. The forecasters have thrown up their hands and stalked away in disgust, so nobody has the faintest idea what weather we'll have for the race.
Championship notes: If Jenson Button finishes 4th or better, he wins the Driver's Championship, no matter what teammate Rubens Barrichello does. If Red Bull doesn't outscore BrawnGP by at least 7 points, Brawn wins the Constructor's Championship... thus, the Mark Webber crash might have stuck a fork in the Red Bull hopes.
Full Qual results later!

I think you're off by ten. Counting this one, there are three races left. Button is up by 15. If he gets 6 points this time, that doesn't ice his lead. Barrichello is mathematically capable of getting 30 points before the season ends.
I'd love to see Button win it, and of course he's got a hell of a good chance of doing so. But it's far from a sure thing, even now.
