This weekend, we are off to Suzuka, Japan and home of Honda.
With the recent updates to all the Honda powered teams and the tactical use of the regulations, this weekend give these drivers the best chance of taking home the victory.
Standing in their way are the pilots of both the Ferrari's and Mercedes.
Ferrari seems the most likely to take the victory while the tacticians at Mercedes seem to fine a way to end up on the top step of the podium.
These top 3 teams should fill the first six positions but, in which order, we will have to wait and see.
The mid-field battle is raging with probably 5 teams capable of taking the next 4 points paying positions. Alfa Romeo has lost a little of shine that they had earlier in the year but are also capable of upsetting the apple cart on any day.
The only certainty is that Williams will finish at or near the rear.
