Kimi Raikkonen crossed the line in fourth position ahead of Mark Verstappen and his Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.

Ferrari-bound Charles Leclerc finished an impressive seventh.

The Suzuka, arguably the greatest track on Earth will stage the Grand Prix in Japan and If Vettel fails to eat into Hamilton’s lead there, the championship is all but over.
