Review of Suzuka by Matthew Roddan
Thanks to a good start Hamilton lead the race from start to finish. This is his best season by far.
Although many would not consider Singapore a success it was certainly lucky that he suffered a DNF at the only race he had no hope of winning due to the Ferrari dominance.
Back to Suzuka, we saw a fairly mundane race with the main action once again being provided by Max Verstappen and the rest of the pack squabbling over positions seven to twelve. Max has a great future albeit now somewhat in the balance due to uncertainty about the future of Red Bull. That said, if Red Bull do leave F1 (unlikely) Max will no longer be tethered to Red Bull and may even find himself at the front of the queue for Kimi’s seat at Ferrari in 2017.
