Originally created in 1962, the Suzuka circuit is one of the few courses that is designed as an altered figure 8. In 1987, Formula 1 races returned to the circuit. Designers put the track around a funfair. That means there are many different activities for race fans. It is also owned by Honda and used as a test track.

Though Nico Rosberg retired from Formula 1, Valtteri Bottas is definitely doing well in his new place with the Mercedes team. He certainly has a lot of support both from the team and Lewis Hamilton. Bottas will be a good one to watch in the future. Since he is now Hamilton’s team mate, we can and may see some of the same type of relationship.

Let’s take a look at the race season this year.

Max Verstappen remains one of our favorites to watch. This young man was the youngest ever Formula 1 driver and will continue to be. The year after he came to the scene, the rules changed. We look forward to the impact he will make in the Formula 1 community.
