Max Verstappen has a second bite of the cherry to clinch another F1 title as the sport returns to one of its favourite stamping grounds this weekend in Japan.

Suzuka has played host to 11 championship-winning parties in the past, with the most recent now 11 years ago when, by coincidence, Sebastian Vettel also won his second crown with Red Bull.

Will Verstappen follow suit? The maths are simple - win and collect the point for the fastest lap and the title is his, no matter the result of his nearest rivals in Ferrari's Charles Leclerc and Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez.

Beyond that, Verstappen has to finish eight points better off than Leclerc and six ahead of Perez. It all seems straightforward.

Set your alarm clocks early though folks if you are in the UK or Europe as there is an eight-hour time difference to Suzuka.

You can catch all the details here...

[William Hill - Odds correct at time of writing]


The odds reflect the fact Suzuka is a circuit that should play into the hands of Red Bull's RB18 and Max Verstappen.

The Dutchman will line up on pole position and is the odds-on favourite for victory on Sunday but this, naturally, does not represent good value.

We saw in Singapore that anything can happen, particularly as rain played a major role, and that is forecast again for Sunday.

But you cannot ignore the fact that all being well, this should be a comfortable Verstappen victory.

WINNER: Max Verstappen
