Leading MotoGP riders, and Indycar drivers including Danica Patrick who will race at Motegi this weekend, have expressed grave concerns about travelling to Japan in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear crisis.

"Heck yeah, I'm concerned," Patrick said, revealing she will take her own food and water to the country.

Japan's Formula One venue, Suzuka, is located further away from Fukushima than is Motegi, and officials have declared that the area is safe.

Runaway 2011 championship leader Vettel insists he is not worried.

"I'm looking forward to it. I think most of us (are)," said the German.

"It's a good sign for us to go there and I hope that we will bring some laughter and joy to the people."
