It figures. We go boasting about how construction at Circuit of the Americas is soooo ahead of schedule because of our drought, and then BAM! Rain, rain, rain. Some speculate that it is a result of the University of Texas Longhorns vs. Oklahoma University Sooners football game. Moving on...

Jenson Button and his Mini-Me!

Our fans still braved the rain and joined us once again at Six Lounge where we had more seating, more food and better audio setup to enjoy the Japanese Grand Prix.

And enjoy the race, we did! WOW, Suzuka, you did not disappoint! Congratulations to Jenson Button! We bet these F1 plush dolls are worth a pretty penny now! Check out Jenson's mini-me below:

And, we had a little fun with Sebastian Vettel's double World Championship win which was secured at Suzuka. Have you seen the viral Double Rainbow YouTube video? I have heard the term used over the past year, but didn't realize there was a video to match. I finally watched it last week and couldn't stop laughing.

After Seb's victory in Japan, accompanied by his signature #1 hand signal - TIMES TWO - Kevin couldn't help but throw this together:

"What does it MEAN!?"

Back to Six Lounge, once again, Robert DeGroff's F1 iRacing simulator was occupied the whole time we were there, and after the race, some Six Lounge employees took it for a spin. We have yet to see anyone jump off this without an ear-to-ear grin on their face. Thank you Robert for taking fans to another level of motorsports!

It seems that each weekend attracts new friends - some new to Austin, some located about an hour away, and some who just wanted to cheer on their teams and drivers with other fans. Whatever brings you out to watch the races with us, we greatly appreciate your support. In fact, the Six Lounge watch party was so jumping, that a neighboring restaurant manager (which shall remain unnamed ;) stopped by and said we had more guests enjoying the F1 race than they had in attendance at their restaurant and bar - and they had football on! That is a major win in Texas.

Thank you Six Lounge and F1 fans & friends!

Later this week we'll give you details for the Korean GP watch party, Sunday, October 16.
