Suzuka has seen its fair share of action over the years, cementing itself a place in F1 history by hosting some of the most iconic moments in the history of the sport. This weekend could see another entry into the rich history of Japan’s favorite circuit as Sebastian Vettel goes in search of his fourth world championship in the land of the rising sun. Should the German driver win the race at Suzuka and closest-rival Fernando Alonso finish ninth or lower, the championship will be over and Vettel will be just the third man in the history of the sport to win four consecutive world titles. Although it is unlikely, Vettel’s affinity for the circuit means that it is not inconceivable.
