Max Verstappen returned to business as usual at the Japanese Grand Prix, taking the win and sealing the constructors' championship for Red Bull.
The Dutchman, bidding for a third consecutive title, won from pole position, while his team-mate Sergio Perez suffered a disastrous race and did not finish, scoring no points as he attempts to hold onto second place.
He will have work to do in Qatar, as Lewis Hamilton behind him is closing the gap, taking P5 in the race and adding 10 points to his total.
Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri had a stellar race, taking P2 and P3 respectively and adding 33 points to McLaren's total. The British team have leapfrogged Alpine in the standings and will now have their sights on Aston Martin.
