Worrying weather conditions take it's toll on the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix

Sunday’s Formula 1 Grand Prix saw teams return to the Suzuka Circuit in Japan. This track always promises some of the best racing action with a total of 53 laps and a distance of 307.47km. Even the best Formula 1 drivers are put to the test on this circuit and 2014 was no different.

Throughout this year’s practice and qualifying sessions the treacherous weather conditions, caused by Typhoon Phanfone, flagged issues throughout the week leading up to the race. Rumours soon began that the race would not being able to go ahead. Needless to say, the race was given the clear to proceed, despite the weather on Sunday being worse than both the practice and qualifying sessions.

Nico Rosberg took pole position with fellow Mercedes team member Lewis Hamilton behind in second. The race began under extremely wet weather conditions causing the racers to start behind the safety car at the lights. Two laps were completed before flags were waved bringing the cars back into the pit lane. Alonso, for Ferrari, came to a halt shortly after the second lap after an electronics fault in his car. Speaking to F1, Alonso stated that he didn’t know what caused the fault and that “suddenly, the car lost all its electrics, maybe down to a short circuit caused by the rain.”


An unusually slow start to the Suzuka Circuit ceased as the safety car returned to the pit allowing the racers to go full throttle. Pit lane timings were increased due to the weather but causing no other problems for the drivers, especially Rosberg as he regained his lead in the Japanese Grand Prix from fellow team mate Hamilton. Lap 29 caused excitement for F1 hospitality guests as Lewis Hamilton took the lead from race leader Nico Rosberg in a fierce battle for first place. This battle for first place continued throughout for Hamilton as he returned from his pit stop.

Unfortunately the race was called to an end as the red flag waved due to a very upsetting circumstance for racers and fans alike. Racer Jules Bianchi spun off in the wet conditions late in the race and collided with a recovery vehicle. Speaking to F1, Marussia have thanked fans and the Formula 1 community for the huge outpouring of support for the racer. A very sombre atmosphere graced the Paddock Club as racers took their positions on the podium, with all racers praying for Bianchi.

The rest of the season goes on as next weekend gives us the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi. If you couldn’t make it to the Japanese Grand Prix then check out the rest of the season here and enquire today for your exclusive VIP hospitality at Formula 1
