October 03, 2012 by Marc Jerbs

On Sunday, the Formula One World Championship moves to Suzuka City in Japan for the 28th Japanese Grand Prix. The fabled Suzuka Circuit road course will host this race event at 14:00PM local time.

The race will cover 53 laps for a total race distance of 307.471km. Kimi Raikkonen holds the fastest lap record of 1min 31.540sec which he established in 2005. The first practice session is scheduled on October 5 at 9:00AM local time and qualifying is set on next day at 13:00PM local time.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso still leads the driver's championship standing with 194 points. Sebastian Vettel's win in the Singapore Grand Prix propelled him into 2nd place with 165 points. Lewis Hamilton dropped to 4th place after he suffered a gearbox problem during the last race.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Lewis Hamilton as the driver to beat on Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix. Hot on his wheels would be Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso.
