Lewis was dominating all weekend and has proved he and McLaren Mercedes have the dominant package at the moment. The Ferarri’s drivers, Kimi and Massa, never even came close at this race, which lead to a perfect start to finish lead for Lewis.

It’s Hamilton’s chance to finally wrap up his first Formula 1 world championship. He needs to make 6 points more than championship rival Felipe Massa. BMW’s Kubica had an outside chance which now seems even more unlikely as he’s starting down in 11th position.

Lewis Hamilton finished the Japanese F1 race on the Fuji Speedway in 12th position after a drive through penalty and a collision with championship rival Massa.

A bad start caused Lewis to be super aggressive in the first corner locking up his tyres on the inside of the corner and pushing Kimi out wide who had a good start and was just in front. This aggressive move gave Hamilton a drive-through penalty.

Ok, now people are already debating whether this is fair or not as usually there’s no drive-through given under these circumstances – but that’s just the way it was today. And Lewis didn’t look happy after the race. I think the main reason was the Massa collided with him causing Lewis to spin and end up at the back of the field.
