Japan 13 Oct Japanese Grand Prix Suzuka International Racing Course, Suzuka City, Mie, JapanOn an eventful day at Suzuka, following morning qualifying due to a typhoon cancelling all Saturday sessions, Valtteri Bottas jumped Sebastian Vettel at the start on his way to the win in Japan. Vettel fought off Lewis Hamilton at the end to keep second with Hamilton third. The race results further down the points were affected by an early end of the race being declared, which gave Sergio Perez a ninth place finish despite him being nudged off by Pierre Gasly on the penultimate lap.
As a result Mercedes clinches the constructor's championship for a sixth consecutive time!
Round 17 goes to Reno Stack, which jumps him back to third overall, Chris S continues his good run of form with second, and Georgethefierce takes third. Overall curley continues to edge out DP#1 at the top.
We're in Mexico next in two weeks and the available picks for everyone are getting scarcer!

Mexico 27 Oct Gran Primo de Mexico Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, Mexico City, MexicoRace Distance: 71 laps, 305.354 km
THE MEXICAN GP returns to the Hermanos Rodriguez circuit in Mexico City in 2015 after a 23 year hiatus. At an altitude of over 7,300 feet, the course in Mexico is by car the highest event on the schedule, creating a challenge for aero downforce and engine power due to the 20% less dense atmosphere. However, with the advent of the turbo-hybrid era, power is far more available to modern F1 cars than downforce, making the car harder and twitchier to drive on the recently paved surface.
