Practice was perfect today but rain is forecast in the Nagoya area for this long holiday weekend, which is likely to make driving conditions very tricky on the day of the race.

Nico Rosberg leads his fellow Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton by 23 points going in to the race.

The 5.8km Suzuka circuit is a classic figure of 8 track with an overpass and has seen some great races in the past.
