When does the Japanese GP start? Red Bull’s Max Verstappen is optimistic to bounce back at Suzuka after 10-win streak ended

The Japanese GP(which is known as Nihon-guranpuri in their language)is a motor racing event in the calendar of the Formula 1 Championship. It has been the venue for many historical and title-deciding races, with 13 World Driver’s Champions being crowned over the 36 World Championship Japanese Grands Prix that have been hosted. Japan was, however, the only Asian nation to host a Formula 1 race event until Malaysia joined the calendar in 1999.

Even though Max Verstappen faced a lot of disappointment throughout the Singapore GP, he is confident to prepare for a strong comeback in the upcoming Japanese GP after seeing his 10-race winning streak come to an end in Singapore with a fifth-place finish.

When does the Japanese GP begin?

The Japanese Grand Prix is supposed to happen on Sunday, September 24, 2023, on Suzuka Circuit according to the F1 calendar. The circuit is a 5.807 km long motorsport race track located in Ino, Suzuka City, Mie Prefecture, Japan and operated by Honda Mobilityland, a subsidiary of Honda Motor Co, Ltd. It is famous for holding some of the world’s most popular championship series events, including the Formula 1 Grand Prix, the World Motorcycle Grand Prix, and the Eight-hour Endurance Race.

The ticket prices vary according to the type of seats in demand or are available. The 3-day General Admission Ticket would cost around $105 USD. Similarly, a Mid-range Grandstand ticket would cost $340 USD, and lastly, the F1 Experiences Champions Club ticket package would cost around $3,300 USD.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen is confident to bounce back at Suzuka after 10-win steak loss

Max Verstappen predicts a return to a full-strength Red Bull in Sunday’s Japanese Grand Prix. Despite his shocking Friday and Saturday form, his performance turned out to be a lot better with Max finishing at fifth place and Sergio at eighth.

Although he lost his 10-winning streak, the two-timed World Champion leads the standings by a giant 151 points going to high-speed Suzuka, a different proposition from the high-downforce Marina Bay Circuit.

“I feel good about Suzuka,’ said Verstappen. “We learned from today and what we got wrong yesterday. I cannot go into details.”

“Getting back on top is the target. Yes.” 

“We have a few ideas. This track is so different and it doesn’t relate.”

“We never expected such a hell of a run,” he added.
