Max Verstappen leads Sergio Perez off the start of the 2024 Japanese Grand Prix.

Here are the complete results from the 2024 edition of the Japanese Grand Prix at the Suzuka International Circuit, which was won by Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.

Verstappen was untouchable throughout the 53 laps at Suzuka, having seen off the threat off the starting grid at both race starts – the first attempt at getting the race underway resulting in a red flag after 30 seconds as Williams’ Alex Albon and RB’s Daniel Ricciardo collided at Turn 3.

Max Verstappen leads home Red Bull 1-2

Verstappen never had to worry too much about the cars behind, once he’d seen off Perez through the opening corners – he slowly but surely pulled away from the field throughout to finish over 10 seconds ahead of Perez.

Third place went to Carlos Sainz, following a tense battle between the two Ferrari drivers as the Spaniard utilised a two-stop strategy versus Leclerc’s one-stop. The Monegasque showed admirable pace in the first stint, but couldn’t stop Sainz coming back at him on fresher tyres in the closing stages – Sainz finding a way past through Turn 1 with six laps remaining.

Leclerc came home in fourth, the highest finisher to use a one-stop strategy that was made possible by the first lap red flag. Fifth went to McLaren’s Lando Norris, who gamely held on to give Ferrari a tough time but, ultimately, couldn’t quite match the red cars.

Fernando Alonso clinched sixth place for Aston Martin, while George Russell was next-best of the one-stop drivers to take seventh for Mercedes after winning a late race battle with McLaren’s Oscar Piastri.

Ninth went to Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, with the final points place going to home hero Yuki Tsunoda as the Japanese driver put in a great drive with some daring overtakes en route to 10th.
