Lewis Hamilton easily won again and this race gave him a bonus. This was his 41st win which ties him with the late Ayrton Senna. Still the 91 wins by Michael Schumacher must look like a long way away. I have always liked the races in Japan, but this one was boring, but on paper it all looks the same. Nico Rosberg came in second and Sebastian Vettel came in third.

Nico Hulkenberg came in at a solid sixth and Felipe Massa came in 17th due to a crash in the first lap.
