Japanese Grand Prix rules and peculiarities
Since 1987, the Japanese GP has been an inevitable part of each season’s Formula 1 calendar. As for the current Japanese GP circuit, Suzuka Circuit, it hasn’t changed since 2009. The track’s shape remembers the figure eight and has several curves of different kinds. That makes the race very challenging, requiring attention, and even dangerous. Since the track’s construction in 1962, there have been 19 fatal accidents. Two of them occurred during the Formula 1 races. So, the drivers always have to be very careful, while challenging for the first place.
The structure of the race is similar to all the other Formula 1 events. A day before the race, the Japanese Grand Prix qualifying is held. It consists of the 3 qualifying sessions:
- All drivers race during the 18 minutes. After that, the 5 slowest participants are eliminated. They get the starting positions from 20th to 16th.
- The remaining 15 drivers race during the 15 minutes. After that, another 5 slowest cars leave the Japanese Grand Prix qualifying. They get the starting positions from 15th to 11th.
- The 10 best drivers race during the 12 minutes. They play out the 10 best starting positions for the race (the winner starts first, the runner-up starts second, and so on).
As the Japanese GP circuit is almost 6 km long, the driver has to complete the full 53 laps ahead of his competitors to win the race. The racer with the best Japanese Grand Prix results adds 25 points to his score. The following 9 drivers get 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 and 1 points (in the order of finishing).
