Max Verstappen says he needs ‘perfect weekend’ to win title in Japan

The Red Bull driver will become champion if he wins Sunday’s race and takes the point for fastest lap. “It would be very nice if it happens here but if it doesn’t, it will be even more in favour at the next race,” Verstappen said. This weekend, the Honda logo returns to the Red Bull cars and those of sister team Alpha Tauri for the first time since the final race of last season in what Red Bull and Honda said was a “strengthening of the partnership”. If Verstappen is second, he needs Leclerc to be lower than fourth and Perez to be lower than fifth. Russell said the team regretted their difficult grand prix in Singapore last weekend, where Hamilton was ninth and Russell out of the points in a race they felt they had the potential to win.
