After taking victory in the previous race in Russia, Lewis Hamilton was in an enthusiastic mood about the prospect of an "awesome" and unpredictable battle for glory at this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix.
"Suzuka is incredible, it's one of the most exciting parts of the year, and now so more than ever before because you've got three solid, incredibly fast teams, pushing each other and having the potential to win a race," he said.
"I have no idea who is going to be quickest there. At the moment, Ferrari are quite dominant but maybe it will suit our car a little bit more, who knows? Or the Red Bull, maybe. It's exciting to go there because that's a serious driver's track, one of the best ones of the whole year. I just hope that we get to have a good race there."
