Valtteri Bottas won the Japanese Grand Prix taking with him the 2019 Formula 1 Constructors Championship for Mercedes.


Lewis in the sister Mercedes was 3rd as Sebastian Vettel in his Ferrari came in second place.


A best ever Formula 1 Finish for the Red Bull driver Alexander Albon who took a fantastic 4th place.


The charging Max Verstappen had to retire from the race with contact with Charles Leclerc, the Red Bull’s floor was damage to much with a estimated loss of 20% downforce with the damage to the floor.


The weekend has caused major disruption over Japan with Typhoon Hagibis causing qualifying to be done on Race day Morning.


The talk among the paddock over the weekend is most people like a two day race weekend, this is certainly what the FIA will look into.
