The Japanese Grand Prix is a favourite among drivers, the ideal tonic to a rough weekend in Singapore last time out.


Red Bull suffered badly as Max Verstappen endured a sub-standard weekend at the Marina Bay Circuit to finish fifth in the race.

Carlos Sainz produced a tyre management clinic as he clawed his way to victory, less than one second ahead of former teammate and good friend Lando Norris.

Japan should offer plenty of fun and games, while fans will be keen to see the Honda-powered Red Bull roar back to life at Suzuka.

Ferrari will be keen to build momentum following Sainz's heroics, while McLaren and Mercedes have forced their way back into the elite pack in lieu of Aston Martin.

Aston Martin withdrew Lance Stroll from the grid following a horror smash in qualifying, while Fernando Alonso slumped to 15th in Singapore. brings you a full round-up of how to watch the Japanese Grand Prix 2023 on TV and live stream.
