The Formula 1 2022 World Championship season continues this week with the 2022 Japanese Grand Prix at the coveted Suzuka Circuit, which is returning to the pinnacle of motor racing for the first time since 2019.
Max Verstappen has the chance to become a World Champion in Japan, as he needs to outscore Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc by six points and his Red Bull teammate Sergio Pérez by eight.
