2016 Japanese Pre-Race Stats

One of my favourite races of the year, the Japanese GP. The 28th race at Suzuka and the 32nd Japanese GP.

Suzuka Circuit is a 5.807km long track with 53 laps in the race, giving a total distance of 307.771km. The track is the fifth longest on the calendar behind Spa, Baku, Silverstone and Sochi. In the previous 27 races 12 (44.44%) have been won from pole position and 23 (85.19%) from the front row of the grid. 14 different drivers have won the Japanese GP at Suzuka, Ferrari and McLaren are both tied with seven wins and Schumacher has six.

Of the drivers currently racing Vettel has four wins, Hamilton two and Button, Raikkonen and Alonso each have one. There have been 20 Japanese drivers in F1 with 17 of those starting at least one race but no race winners. The best Japanese driver statistically is Kamui Kobayashi with 125 points, one podium and one fastest lap. Three Japanese drivers have a podium and three drivers have a fastest lap, but only Kobayashi has both.

The Silly Stats

You would need 3396 Kamui Kobayashis to lap around the Suzuka Circuit once. 468 of him would be the length of the main straight and another 702 for the back straight.

If you were to place Makizushi sushi rolls around the Japanese GP circuit you could cover the entire track surface with 19,356,667 of them.
