We enter the last six gran prix of the season with 150 points still at disposal. After the victory signed by Vettel and Ferrari in Singapore, and Lewis Hamilton’s retirement due to some complications, everyone dreams what is impossible.
The Circus arrives at Suzuka, in Japan. It is an old fashioned historical circuit where a mistake is payed heavily, Drivers will have to forget the long paved and safe “Tilke”escapes quickly.
We talk about a track that wrote fundamental pages of this long, fast and demanding sport, this is a circuit also distinguished by its adverse weather conditions. Clearly our thought rapidly goes to last year terrible accident which deprived us of Jules Bianchi.Here engines and tyres are considerably stresses and cause many uncertainties as the entry of the Safety car.
It will be interesting to see how Mercedes will be able to react. Ferrari, little by little, is nibbling essential points.The past teaches us that the German team, is not so perfect under pressure. I believe that William is already in 2016.The third place is sure for them. I don’t think that Red Bull had the power to recover the current gap, so Lotus towards Force India. Instead, Toro Rosso will try to bother Enstone’s team with its two standard-bearers returning from a good week-end in Singapore, especially Verstappen who managed a good recover with the help of two Safety car.
It will be a critical event also behind the scenes with sheavily maneuvers towards a not so rosy future. We have Honda that, among a lot of complications, is arranging to do the honors. Red Bull without engine and Renault that has to decide its plans. In all this, time is inexorably ticking.
