2015 Japanese GP Post-Race Stats

A bit of a dull Japanese GP, Hamilton took the lead by turn two and kept it the entire race. Rosberg started on pole but finished the first lap in fourth place after being forced wide by Hamilton.

Rosberg ended up finishing in second position and Vettel took third, fastest lap went to Lewis Hamilton. Daniil Kvyat had to start from the pit lane due to a qualifying accident and ended up finishing in 13th place. Max Verstappen gained the most positions in the race, starting 17th and finishing in eighth, ahead of his teammate Sainz.

The Japanese GP had no classified retirements at all, Felipe Nasr failed to finish the race but as he completed over 90% of the distance was still classed as having finished. The last race without a retirement was at the 2011 European GP.

2015PositionsJapan

Only three changes after Japan, Grosjean & Perez have switched positions for ninth and tenth, Hulkenberg & Verstappen have switched 11th and 12th and Sainz and Alonso for 15th and 16th.

2015PointsJapan

Hamilton has a huge 48 point lead with five races left, Rosberg and Vettel can still beat him to the title but it’s highly unlikely that either will, but I can see Vettel passing Rosberg for second place.
