On lap 4 attempted an overtake on the inside of at turn 16. Therefore Perez keeps his ninth place. Since, then, though, he's been quick in the races at least , combative and back to the Vettel of old. Worse, they were closer to McLaren behind them than they were to the very front. On lap 2 the stewards deemed the collision between Leclerc and Verstappen a racing incident with no investigation necessary. Norris had also earlier collected debris from Leclerc's front wing in his brake ducts which forced him to pit to avoid a brake fire dropping him to the back of the field.

I just wanted to get the best points for the team today. Hamilton was fitted with medium-compound tyres with the team informing him that the plan was for him not to make another pit stop. Still, there's an outside chance of a podium here. Chris Brookes, Yuki Iino, , , Yuki Ueno and Naomi Yoshimura made their first appearance in the tournament.

But Vettel pulled a brilliant lap out to lead his team-mate on the front row, with both Mercedes cars - Valtteri Bottas ahead - around two tenths away in third and fourth. Might even a format of two Saturday practice sessions - then qualifying and the race on Sunday as today - be optimal?

I am still not able to explain the chequered flag system error entirely but it cost Renault a point and gained Racing Point one.

It's just a hint + still a week to go, but model agreement and current formation are impressive! The circuit, which held its first Grand Prix in 1987, has a lap length of 5. Assuming everything goes to plan, that is. Mercedes are very quick in the race so it's not going to be easy. Hamilton cannot win the Championship in Japan, but if he triumphs at Suzuka, he could potentially seal the crown in Mexico.
