F1 2017: Hamilton Beats Verstappen To Win Japanese GP, Disaster For Vettel

F1 2017: Hamilton Beats Verstappen To Win Japanese GP, Disaster For Vettel”

The Frenchman finished 14 on his F1 race debut in Malaysia last week, and has subsequently relinquished the chance to win the Super Formula title, with the final round in Japan clashing with the US Grand Prix later this month.

"The start was okay, although the initial getaway was not spectacularly good, I had a bit of wheel spin", said Hamilton. I'm not really particularly taking insane risks in order to be in the position I'm in. I just have to keep my head down and keep doing what I've been doing.

UPDATE [2:32 a.m.]: It's official: Hamilton won the Japanese Grand Prix. "Also the support we get really does help lift us up".

The front row of the grid will be occupied by the two title rivals, with Hamilton claiming his first ever pole position at the Suzuka circuit.

It's all starting to look an impossible task for Vettel to stop Hamilton winning another drivers title, and Bottas could end up taking second place if Ferrari's luck continues in the same vein.

The Ferrari driver skipped the pre-race ceremony to remain by his vehicle, as mechanics worked to address the spark plug problem that would put him out of the race.

Replicant or human? Blade Runner 2049 reignites existential debate
Cinematographer Roger Deakins-who had better finally get his goddamn Oscar for this movie-has outdone himself in 2049. Fans of Dave Bautista will be disappointed with the lack of screentime the wrestler-turned-actor has here.

World championship leader Hamilton went fastest in that session, setting a time of one minute, 48.719 seconds, kicking up a dense mist of spray as he toured the circuit, almost 20 seconds off Vettel's morning best on a dry track. The Spaniard, though, will start at the back after McLaren replaced his Honda power unit overnight, triggering a 35-place grid penalty for the double world champion.

"Of course it hurts, and we're all disappointed", the four times world champion, who hugged his mechanics and gave the crowd a quick wave after returning to the pits, told television reporters. "But for sure now you don't look at the positives because it's not the day to look at positives".

Vettel, who sits in second place just behind Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton in the F1 drivers' championship, quickly lost position after slowing on track and was ultimately called in by his team.

Lewis Hamilton showed the young pretender who was boss on Sunday by fending off Max Verstappen in the closing laps of the Japanese Grand Prix. It only helped further that Hamilton was impeded by Fernando Alonso on Lap 51, which helped Verstappen to close in on Ham to within 0.8 seconds. "I had massive understeer".

"I tried everything on the last run, I knew I had to take a bit more risk", he continued. Hamilton's victory means he has opened up an nearly insurmountable 59-point lead ahead of Sebastian Vettel, with just 100 points left to play for.

Magnussen (Haas), Romain Grosjean (Haas) and Felipe Massa (Williams) completed the top 10.
