WEEKEND WARM-UP: Will Red Bull bounce back in style as drivers gear up for the Japanese Grand Prix?


After a well deserved weekend off, the F1 drivers are ready and raring to go for the fourth race weekend of the season. They have made the journey to Japan to enjoy the cherry blossoms in bloom, but who is going to leave Suzuka the happiest on Sunday?

All eyes will be on Red Bull to see how they respond to being beaten by Ferrari last time out, as Carlos Sainz looks to continue his impressive form and back up his victory in style. The Spaniard is still searching for a drive for next season – but that result in Melbourne certainly didn't hamper his chances.

Elsewhere, Mercedes like Red Bull need to bounce back from a disappointing showing down under, with reliability woes to add to their headaches. McLaren though did very well here last season and will be looking for a similar result this weekend.

Yuki Tsunoda certainly has the home fans on his side as he tries to make it back to back points finishes having opened his tally in Melbourne, but keep an eye out for his team mate this weekend. Daniel Ricciardo is under a bit of pressure at the moment after three difficult weekends – and could do with a strong drive to silence some doubters.

Join Ariana Bravo, Lawrence Barretto and Will Buxton as they delve into all of those talking points and more in the Japanese Grand Prix Weekend Warm-Up.
