It’s been a while since I’ve done any stats, but they are back! The Japanese GP is always one of my favourites.
5.807km long lap
53 lap race
307.771km total race distance
31st GP at Suzuka
35th Japanese GP
15 wins from pole (50%)
26 wins from the front row (86.7%)
15 different drivers have won the race at Suzuka
McLaren and Ferrari are tied for most wins at Suzuka with seven each
Mercedes have won five races at Suzuka, which are also the last five races at Suzuka
Schumacher has the most wins at the track with six, but Hamilton is just behind with five
Both Mercedes drivers are the only drivers that have reached Q3 at every race this year
Magnussen will make his 99th race entry
Mercedes could win their 99th race
Only three current F1 drivers have won the Japanese GP
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.
