So the F1 qualifying session from Suzuka was postponed because of heavy rain. Instead of going back to bed, I watched the sun come up at Nesodden and added a few new one-liners. There are also some in this list that were added previously, but I didn’t bother to write an entry about it because it was only one or two at the time. Since I add the odd new one-liner ever now and then, be sure to check the listing regularly.
