Age[edit]

Began races in 1994 at the age of 12? Unbelievable—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rogerthat (talkcontribs) 02:35, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

He started in karting at age 12. Many of today's professional single-seat racecar drivers were in karting at that age or younger (see Michael Schumacher, Scott Speed, and Danica Patrick for examples). Also, Yamamoto's own website states that he was born in 1982. I have changed the date in the article to reflect this. Majin Izlude 17:49, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Hungary[edit]

Just to clarify that Sakon made a mistake at the first corner in Hungary, and the car did not suffer a mechanical failure. Quote from Aguri Suzuki: "Sakon made a good start and tried an overtaking manoeuvre at the first corner, but he was too late in braking and unfortunately stalled the car."
