Lewis Hamilton – 2017 Japanese Grand Prix Winner
Lewis Hamilton started on the pole and had an easy win, despite the challenging pressure put on him by Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. If Lewis had faltered even for a little bit, the trophy would have gone to the Red Bull, seeing that they took position 2 and 3, which is still a pretty impressive performance considering the competitive nature of this motor sport. Verstappen pursued Hamilton, and at some point, the German racer was just 0.2 seconds behind the Briton, who relied on the effectiveness of the backmarkers to put the competition at bay.
Vettel’s Early Retirement
The 2017 Japanese Grand Prix winner Hamilton gained a commanding 59-point lead on the leaderboard following Sebastian Vettel’s early retirement from the race due to a problem with his Ferrari spark plug. The German professional racer was pulled out of the race by mechanics during Lap 5 and this was an advantage for Hamilton as it propelled him clearly ahead of the park with a commanding 59-point lead with only four races remaining.
Only six weeks ago, Ferrari was on top of the table with Vettel leading the championship, so it is quite astonishing that Ferrari’s campaign has somewhat collapsed.

First, he lost a few places after being forced wide during the first couple of laps, but he tried to make his way back into the race.
With his latest win at the Japanese Grand Prix, Hamilton has taken a major step towards clinching another world championship title, considering that he is now 59 points in the lead with only four races to go.
