It has been announced that Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will attend the Japanese F1 GP pre-final ceremony to be held at Suzuka Circuit for the first time in three years.
The Japanese F1 GP has been canceled for two years due to the new coronavirus. In particular, despite the success of the Olympics in Japan last year, permission to host the event was not granted. “I feel unfair,” he said.
At the press conference held on the morning of October 7 (Friday), Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Seiji Kihara announced the Japanese F1 Grand Prix Final to be held at Suzuka Circuit in Mie Prefecture on Sunday October 9. Minister Fumio Kishida will attend the ceremony before the start of the race.
“Prime Minister Kishida is due to visit Mie Prefecture the day after tomorrow, October 9, and Kagoshima Prefecture on October 10, if circumstances permit,” Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Seiji Kihara said. .
“In Mie Prefecture, we are planning to participate in the race start ceremony of the 2022 Honda F1 Japan Grand Prix FIA F1 World Championship Series.”
During the ceremony preceding the final race of the 2022 Japanese F1 Grand Prix, it was decided that Nana Mizuki, who is active as a voice actress, singer and narrator, will sing the national solo.
In Japan, the Prime Minister has never visited a motorsport scene, which is rare even in the world. Last week, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government signed a contract to host Formula E in 2024, and it looks like the focus will shift to motorsport, which has been rumored to be unpopular in recent years.
