The driver’s paradise, Suzuka is a fan favourite of the F1® season, with its winding S curves and iconic crossover making for some of the most exciting races on the calendar. Championships have been decided at Suzuka – do you have what it takes to lead your team to the podium?
Suggested car setup for Suzuka:
- High-speed cornering is crucial
- Focusing on acceleration, DRS, and medium speed cornering is also recommended
- Balanced circuit
A brutal combination of rough circuit surface, a lengthy pit stop, and stormy weather makes for one of the most unpredictable races of the season.
- Suzuka rewards patient drivers; if you can get away with one pit stop, you will have a step up on most of the competition.
- Aggressive driving on this highly abrasive circuit may force you to stop twice, immediately giving you a 30-second penalty you need to come back from.
- If rain is forecast, try to hold your first pit stop until it starts: you will get an advantage on every driver who pitted once and now must change to inters.
After a promising qualifying and the buzz of fresh driver contracts, AlphaTauri are eager to impress at Yuki's home race. During their second stint, Tsunoda and Lawson are at the edge of the points, but Gasly is rapidly catching them on fresher tyres. At a track with a powerful undercut, manage your pit stops wisely, and work as a team to score much-needed points for AlphaTauri.
