We are now three-quarters of the way through the Formula One season, and as we hit the most pivotal time of the campaign the drivers and their teams travel to Japan for the race at Suzuka. Excitement is building amongst our Japanese fans who will be able to watch the race live and on-demand on DAZN. Fans will be able to watch every twist and turn from the race as Lewis Hamilton and Sebastien Vettel prepare to go head to head once again in the battle for the title.
Our friends over at Opta have provided us with some really cool stats ahead of the race :
- Historically the Japanese GP is the most decisive in F1 history, with the Championship having been decided there 12 times.
- If Vettel wins at Suzuka this year, the Japanese GP will become his most successful Grand Prix (five wins).
- Mercedes has been on pole and won the race in the last three Japanese races in a row.
With just five races until the end of the season, the title could still go a number of ways. Brit Lewis Hamilton currently leads the way with 281 points ahead of his nearest rival Sebastien Vettel on 247 and Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas on 222. Hamilton can cement his lead with victory here at Suzuka, and F1 fans can catch all the gripping action live on DAZN!
