Practice analysis – F1 2016 Japanese GP

The Japanese grand prix weekend got underway with the second free practice sessions which was dominated by the Mercedes boys with both sessions being lead by Nico Rosberg. But, in addition to qualifying simulation teams also did race simulation and so let’s take a look at race pace of some top teams.

As expected Mercedes look very strong both in qualifying runs and also in the long run’s on heavy fuel load, with very consistent and fast lap-times on both soft and the hard compound tyres.

Their closest challenger seems to be Red-bull both in terms of qualifying pace and race pace, and the red-bull looked particularly strong on their long run’s.

Ferrari seem to be the best of the rest but will be challenged closely by the Force India who had a great day today and are optimistic about their chances in the race and qualifying.

The midfield looks really tight with very close lap-times between Mclaren, Williams, Haas, Toro Rosso and even the Renault. So, come the race it will be a really close fight in the mid-pack so that should give us some dramas in the race.

Also, the weather can play a deciding factor as forecast suggests rain for qualifying and even for the race there is a chance of rain so if that happens it’s gonna change everything and none of this would be relevant, nonetheless if it stays dry expect Mercedes and Red-bull to run away at the front.
