Oct.10 (GMM) Red Bull test driver Sebastien Buemi has at Fuji Speedway taken over the duty of driving the official formula one medical car

The young Swiss’ Honda counterpart Alex Wurz stepped into the cabin of the Mercedes C63 AMG Estate in Singapore two weeks ago, after the regular medical car driver Jacques Tropenat fell ill

It is understood that Tropenat, the FIA’s deputy director of medical affairs, has an ear infection

In other brief news from the Japanese grand prix, it emerges that a group of Honda engineers climbed the majestic nearby Mt Fuji earlier this week

Unlike in the abysmal weather of a year ago, Japan’s highest mountain can in 2008 easily be seen in the background at Fuji Speedway
