The Japanese Grand Prix is a high-speed auto racing event held in Japan as part of the Formula 1 championship. Traditionally held at the end of the calendar, it often determines the championships.

Out of the first 19 Grand Prix races held in Japan, the world title was decided in 12 of them (1976, 1987-1991, 1996, 1998-2000, 2003, 2011, and 2022, with the 1976 race at Fuji Speedway and the remaining 11 at Suzuka Circuit).

Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna starred in the 1989 and 1990 editions, battling for the driver’s title, both ending with retirements after collisions between them.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Michael Schumacher had intense battles with rivals such as Mika Häkkinen, Kimi Räikkönen, and Fernando Alonso. In 2007 and 2008, the Japanese Grand Prix returned to Fuji, now under Toyota ownership.

Later, a rotation between Fuji and Suzuka was established, but the late-2000s economic crisis led Toyota to stop hosting the race at Fuji, making Suzuka the permanent venue once again.
