Report

Race report

Lewis Hamilton secured a third successive win to open up his championship lead at an incident-filled Japanese Grand Prix.

 

The leader did not take the chequered flag as the race was red-flagged for a second time in the afternoon following two separate crashes on the same corner.

Hamilton had started behind pole sitter Nico Rosberg on the grid but passed his Mercedes team-mate and rival to open up a 10-point gap in their battle for the title.

Having already been stopped due to the weather brought on by nearby Typhoon Phanfone, the race was cut short by nine laps as the Marussia of Jules Bianchi went off at the same site as Adrian Sutil's Sauber - which was being recovered by marshals and machinery at the time.

The second Toro Rosso of Daniil Kvyat was classified as the first of the non-points scorers in 11th, with the sole remaining Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen behind him.

Esteban Gutierrez took 13th for Sauber with McLaren's Kevin Magnussen 14th ahead of the Lotus pair of Romain Grosjean and Maldonado.

Marcus Ericsson finished 17th, with his Caterham team-mate and fan favourite Kamui Kobayashi 19th and Max Chilton (Marussia) sandwiched in-between.
