One of the most traditional circuits in motorsport and a great classic in Formula 1, had its contract extended this Friday (2). Suzuka guaranteed its stay on the category’s calendar for another five years to host the Japanese GP.
The stage for several battles, the Japanese track is one of the most anticipated races, both for drivers and fans. The route has already seen several historic moments in the category, such as title decisions and the crash between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost in 1989, where the Brazilian needed a victory on the circuit, but lost the title to the Frenchman.
Even though the circuit is narrow, it is still a high-speed track that offers challenging corners. Like the famous S combination and the famous 130R, which has this nomenclature because of the radius of 130 m, which can be done at full acceleration.
In the last edition of Suzuka, Max Verstappen won the race, took the constructors’ title for Red Bull Racing and the McLaren duo completed the podium.
