Red Bull has the opportunity to clinch the Constructors' Championship again at the Japanese Grand Prix, having failed to do so at the race in Singapore.

With just seven Grands Prix remaining and three Sprint races, there are still 206 points up for grabs until the end of the season.

The team would need to outscore nearest rivals Mercedes, who they lead by 308 points, to claim their second Constructors' title in a row and sixth overall.

If they achieve a one-two finish along with a fastest lap for either Max Verstappen or Sergio Perez, they would come away with 44 points.

Even if Mercedes finish in third and fourth with George Russell and Lewis Hamilton, they would not outscore them and Red Bull would become champions.

However, if Mercedes score a one-two at Suzuka and Red Bull finish third and fourth, that would not be enough and it would carry on until Qatar.

As for the Ferrari challenge, Red Bull needs to be not outscored by the Scuderia by 24 points to retain the title.

Below is a table of all the permutations for Red Bull and the amount they need to lead Mercedes by to seal the title.
