Follow F1 live with PlanetF1.com throughout the Japanese Grand Prix weekend as Red Bull look to bounce back from their first defeat of the season.

Arriving at the Suzuka circuit, Max Verstappen may be the favourite for the win but both the driver and his F1 team, Red Bull, are licking their wounds after losing in Singapore.

Last time out Carlos Sainz took the win ahead of Lando Norris but it is already been said the Marina Bay circuit was Red Bull bogey track and rivals fear they won’t only be back in Japan, they’ll be unforgiving as they seek revenge.

Mercedes, Ferrari, and McLaren are expected to lead the fight against Red Bull but at the end of the day everyone is predicting a Red Bull rampage.

But then again, who thought they’d even lose Singapore?

Should Red Bull secure the win on Sunday, it could be the final notch in the championship race as the team could wrap up the Constructors’ Championship weekend.

They need to score one point more than Mercedes, they’d win on countback, and also need to not finish more than 24 points behind Ferrari.
