Hamilton 'waiting whole life' to race in Japan

Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton has said he "feels like he's been waiting his whole life" to take part in a race at the Japanese Sukuza circuit, it has been reported.

Commenting ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix this weekend, Hamilton said that since he was a youngster, he has been racing on the track on computer games.

"It looks like a real driver's circuit - the first sector esses look very demanding and the higher speed corners towards the end of the lap will probably require real precision and a good car set-up," he said.

Hamilton also enthused about Japan itself, noting that it is one of his favourite countries and that he loves to race in front of the Japanese Formula One fans.

Heikki Kovalainen also had praise for racing in Japan and noted that he had one of his best drives in Fuji back in 2007.

Lewis Hamilton was victorious in the last Grand Prix, which took place in Singapore last weekend.
