The Japanese Grand Prix brought Formula 1 back to reality after the topsy-turvy story in Singapore a week ago. At Suzuka, Mercedes was back on top and a good start by Lewis Hamilton resulted in Nico Rosberg losing out when he went wide on the first lap. After that the race was Lewis’s to lose. Nico had to fight his way back to second, while Sebastian Vettel did not have the pace to battle Hamilton and ended up in third place. Further back there were some great performances around the fabulous Suzuka circuit, notably from Nico Hulkenberg, who drove from 13th on the grid to sixth and Max Verstappen who took his Toro Rosso from 17th up to ninth. There was plenty of hustle and bustle in the middle order.
