Lap 60- Top five are running almost together, then there is a ten second gap to sixth placed Brack, who heads a ten car train, at the rear of which is Andretti, currently proving a major problem for race leader Montoya as he tries to lap the Motegi winner

Lap 16- Montoya already lapping traffic as he holds a 0.9s lead over Fittipaldi. Garcia Jr is black-flagged after some very slow laps
