2015 FORMULA 1 JAPANESE GRAND PRIX - SUZUKA

Image


After the beautiful night race at Singapore, the F1 circus arrives at one of it's most amazing stages of the season, an old school and challening track, loved by almost every single driver in the grid, Suzuka! At Singapore, a completelly new scenario was presented, Mercedes faced serious problems with their performance, mostly due to the tyres and the race was dominated by Sebastian Vettel! After a podium without any of Mercedes car and without any Mercedes engine, the F1 is back to a high speed circuit, where the powerful german engine, might set the pace once again, will Ferrari and Red Bull be able to keep the pace, or Mercedes will once again dominate? The answers will start to be given in the next friday, when the cars hits the track for the first practice session!

JAPANESE GP HISTORY


Spoiler:
First held in 1976, the Japanese GP came to put in the F1 calendar, one of the most passionate countries, when it comes to motorsports. A country where racing is in the air, with several manufacturers and a culture of motorsports that grow on people since their very first years.

The first circuit to receive this GP was Fuji Speedway, a fantastic place, near the Mt. Fuji. Right in it's first year in the series, the Japanese GP was the stage for a exciting championship finale. Lauda and Hunt were fighting point by point, Lauda survived a terrible accident earlier that year and a title would mean a lot to him. Hunt had the chance of his life in that year.
However, the heavy rain that fell down in the race day, spoiled a bit of the competition, as Lauda refused to race in such conditions and the race became a desperate chase from Hunt to get enough points to get the title. The british driver ended up winning the title in a fantastic first time race in Japan.
One year later, the tragedy involving the crash of Gilles Villeneuve took the series away from Japan and it took 10 long years until F1 was back to the Land of the Rising Sun!

When F1 went back to Japan in 1987, the series were in a completelly different moment from the 70's, with much faster cars, much more safety and a brand new circuit to discover, Suzuka Circuit. That would be the place where the title would be decided in five seasons in a row.

In 1987, after a big crash at the "Snake" sector, Nigel Mansell was unable to race and Nelson Piquet won his 3rd title and his first and only for Williams.
In the following years, McLaren would dominate F1, with three titles for Ayrton Senna and one for Alain Prost, everytime, with a dramatic end.

In the 1988 race, Ayrton Senna had a problem right in the start as his car stalled, Senna lost several positions and had to push really hard to recover during the race. It seemed impossible to reach Prost after such a huge trouble in the start, however, a light rain started to fall, not enough to use wet tyres, but enough for Ayrton Senna to reach Alain Prost, a driver that never had a very good relation with the wet track. After an awesome recovering, Ayrton Senna received the checkered flag in the first place and got his first title, a great and special moment for the brazilian driver.

One year later, the situation was the opposite, Senna was the one who had to win the last two races of the season in order to grab the title. Once again, Prost took the lead and Ayrton had to chase him. This time, the season wouldn't end in a good way, Senna tried an optimistic move in the chicane to overtake Prost, the frenchman blocked the way and they both crashed. While Prost just left his car, Senna desperatelly asked for help to the local stewards, who could place him back into the track. However, as Senna "cut" the chicane in his way back to the track, all his work was in vain. After a very dubious decision by Jean Marrie Balestre, Ayrton Senna was disqualified and Alessandro Nannini got the victory, that meant Alain Prost was winning his 3rd World Championship.

In 1990, Senna was again the one with the advantage in the championship and Prost needed to win at Suzuka, but this time, the rivals were in different teams, Senna still in McLaren and Prost taking a Ferrari to a title fight after a long, long time.
Prost had a better start, but Senna, with the 1989 decision still in his mind, found in the first corner, the chance to put an end to the fight. The brazilian crashed into the back of Prost's Ferrari and both ended up in the gravel trap, out of the race and Senna got his 2nd title. Two years in a row where the championship was decided in a very sad way.

In 1991, with Ferrari decreasing and Williams improving, the fight for the championship was between Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell, two spetacular drivers, with a very agressive approach in their driving style. This time, the fight would take more than a lap, but yet it wouldn't end the way the fans wanted to, Mansell and Senna hadn't the chance to fight wheel by wheel for the victory. As Gerhard Berger took the lead, Ayrton Senna tried to hold Mansell back, the british driver couldn't have much patience and trying to get closer to Ayrton Senna, Nigel lost the apex in turn one, spun off and got stucked in the gravel trap. That was the end of the line for "The Lion", meaning he was vice champion for the 3rd time in his career and Ayrton Senna was champion for the 3rd time.

It would take a long time for the championship to be decided at Japan again. Only in 1996, the japanese track was the stage for the title decider, with Damon Hill's first and only triumph.
Suzuka was also the place for Mika Hakkinen's first title in 1998 and the first title for McLaren since the Senna era. Mika won it in Japan in 1999 either, but lost the chance to win a 3rd consecutive title in 2000 when Michael Schumacher won his 3rd championship and the first one for Ferrari, since the 1979 title with Jody Scheckter.

In the following years, the Japanese GP wouldn't see too much championship deciders, that would only happen again in 2003, with Michael Schumacher winning his 6th title and beating the old 5 title mark of Juan Manuel Fangio and in 2011, where Sebastian Vettel won his 2nd World Championship for Red Bull.

In this meanwhile, the Japanese GP returned to Fuji in two times, 2007 and 2008. Just like the first run in 1976 and 1977, a wet and a dry race, however, the F1 circus returned quickly to Suzuka, a much better track than Fuji and a place where almost every single driver likes to be.

In 2014, the Japanese GP was marked by the terrible accident, that took away the life of Jules Bianchi, a young and talented driver, who had a great future ahead. The situation was one of the most strange ever seen in Formula 1, after Sutil's crash, the SC wasn't deployed, a rescue tractor was being used to remove his Sauber, and Bianchi lost it at the exact same place, hitting the tractor head on. After nine months of long fight in the hospital, unfortunatelly, Bianchi lost the battle for his life and became the first driver to lost his life in F1, since the death of Ayrton Senna in the 1994 San Marino GP. The terrible accident, has set up a red light into the F1 direction, that now takes much more safety concerns when a car is being rescued, unfortunatelly, such improvement, was done in the cost of a great driver's life.

The 2015 race will be a tribute to the memory of the frenchman, and every single driver will do everything to make this event a beautiful moment, that a man like Jules Bianchi would be proud to watch! Hamilton leads the championship, with a comfortable advantage to his teammate Nico Rosberg, who's being chased closely by Ferrari's driver Sebastian Vettel, boosted by the win at the Singapore GP.

SUZUKA CIRCUIT HISTORY


Spoiler:
Designed by John Hugenholtz, the same man who designed Zandvoort, Suzuka born to become the most spetacular circuit in Japan and one of the best in the world. At first, thought to be a Honda test track, Suzuka become popular for several series including NASCAR, who organized two races there, back in 1996 and 1997.

Suzuka is a track that unites the most different kinds of turns and styles in the calendar. Long straights, fast turns, an amazing "S" sector, a hairpin, an spoon shaped corner and the controversial chicane, where the 1989 championship was decided. The track is one of the old school tracks that remains in F1 calendar, with only a few changes happening there during the history of the circuit.
Even almost 30 years after it's first appearance in F1, back in 1987, Suzuka is still the only circuit where the track crosses itself, in an "8" format. A challenging place that demands a lot from drivers and cars.

Located near Nagoya, Suzuka is also a place where the weather can play an important role, during all those years, the rain came to mix things up many times, although, only a few proper wet races happened there, where drivers actually had two put on wet tyres, 1993, 1994, 1995 and 2014. However, many qualifying sessions and practice sessions happened under wet conditions.

The rain wasn't the only nature phenomenom to hit Suzuka. In 2004 a typhoon cancelled a whole day of action and in 2000 an earthquake scared everyone at the circuit. Thankfully none of these caused any further damage neither any victims.

The only damage Suzuka usually causes is for the cars, a very challenging track, with an incredible mix of different turns makes this circuit very accident prone and during those almost three decades, the most different and incredible crashes happened at Suzuka, including some controversial ones, like the crashes between Senna and Prost, sad ones like the serious accident for Mansell in 1987 and Aguri Suzuki's career ending crash in 1995 and even incredible accidents, like McNish's scary crash at 130R in 2002.
Nowadays, the most challenging turn, where drivers have the biggest problems is Degner, a place that year by year see cars crashing and getting stucked into the gravel trap.

This 2015 Japanese Grand Prix Official Thread, is a tribute to Jules Bianchi, a man who gave his life to what he loved the most, which is also the reason we all gather here in this forums, RACING! Let's all make this a great thread, for a great race, to make it something a fantastic man, and a talented racer like Jules would feel honoured to see!

Thank you Jules! Rest in Peace!
