Formula 1 returns to Suzuka this weekend for the Japanese Grand Prix, marking the first time that it has been staged since 2019.
Since making its debut on the calendar back in 1987, the Suzuka International Racing Course has become hugely popular with drivers and fans alike.
The venue has been absent from the schedule in recent times due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Valtteri Bottas the last man to win the race three years ago.
Max Verstappen recorded a DNF on that occasion, but returns to the track in 2022 with the possibility of winning his second World Championship. Can he make it happen in Japan?
