Mercedes Star driver Lewis Hamilton is in raging form in the ongoing Suzuka circuit in Japanese Grand Prix.
Ferrari is looking for a victory to reignite their title challenges this weekend, but an impressive Lewis Hamilton topped Mercedes one-twos in both of Suzuka’s opening two practice sessions.
Toto Wolff insists Mercedes and Ferrari are still ‘neck and neck’ at the Japanese GP despite the championship leaders’ huge Friday advantage.
Sebastian Vettel was eight tenths behind his title rival in P2, and that was the closest Ferrari got to Mercedes all day.
Hamilton is 50 points ahead of Vettel and another win would put the champions title farther off Vettel’s reach. Mercedes is also in the lead for the Constructions title with 53 points over Ferrari. Red Bull Racing and Renault and Hass F1 Team are third, fourth and fifth respectively.
The Suzuka Circuit is currently on-going. The next stop would be the USA Grand Prix.
