Overview

The Japanese Grand Prix, first held in 1977 at the Fuji Speedway, has been held at Suzuka since 1987. Historically, Japan has been one of the last races of the Formula One season, and as such the Japanese Grand Prix has been the venue for many title-deciding races, with 12 World Champions having been crowned here since its inception. With some of the most challenging corners in the F1 circuit, the famous “Spoon Curve” and its unique figure-of-eight layout, the Suzuka circuit has become a favorite of drivers and race aficionados alike!
