Formula 1 returns to the land of the rising sun in Suzuka for the Japanese Grand Prix.

Last year Max Verstappen clinched his second Drivers' Championship, however this is not going to happen this year since the earliest he can do it is at the Qatar Grand Prix.

Instead Red Bull can claim their second Constructors' Championship in a row and sixth overall in the team's history.

The 53-lap race starts at 14:00 local time in Japan. Use our handy table below to find out when the Japanese Grand Prix starts in your time zone.
