Motoyama is champion

Satoshi Motoyama won his third Formula Nippon title at the weekend at Motegi, finishing second to Toshihiro Kaneishi in the penultimate race of the season. Motoyama's only rival for the championship was his team mate Benoit Treluyer, who needed to finish ahead of Motoyama to keep his hopes of victory alive.

After a poor qualifying session the Frenchman ended up only 10th in the race.

Motoyama recently had his first taste of F1 testing for Jordan on Friday morning at Suzuka.
