It has been announced that Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will attend the Japan GP F1 semi-final ceremony held at Suzuka Circuit for the first time in three years.
The Japanese F1 GP, which has been canceled for the past two years due to the new coronavirus. In particular, despite the success of the Olympic Games in Japan last year, permission was not given to hold the event, “I feel unfair,” he said.
At the press conference held on the morning of October 7th (Friday), Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Seiji Kihara announced the final round of the Japan F1 Grand Prix to be held at the Suzuka Circuit in Mie Prefecture on Sunday, October 9. It was announced that Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will attend the ceremony before the start of the race.
“Prime Minister Kishida is expected to visit Mie Prefecture the day after tomorrow, October 9, and Kagoshima Prefecture on October 10, if circumstances permit,” said Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Seiji Kihara.
“In Mie Prefecture, we plan to participate in the starting ceremony of the 2022 FIA F1 World Series Honda F1 Japan Grand Prix Race.”
At the ceremony before the final race of the F1 Japan Grand Prix 2022, it was decided that Nana Mizuki, who is active as a voice actor, singer and narrator, will sing the national anthem.
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 aimed at hosting Formula E in 2024, and it appears that attention will be focused on motorsport, which has been rumored to be unpopular over the years last
