Valtteri Bottas helped Mercedes win the 2019 Japanese Grand Prix

Valtteri Bottas won the Japanese lap with a time of 1 hour 21 minutes 46,755 seconds, thereby helping Mercedes to win the team for the sixth consecutive year.

Bottas came first, though he came after the Ferrari duo. The Finnish driver had an excellent race by taking advantage of Sebastian Vettel's mistake at the start. Vettel came second, a second behind Bottas. The Ferrari driver was under intense pressure from Lewis Hamilton for the last six rounds.

All the most important events of the Japanese Grand Prix stage are encapsulated in the first round. In addition to Bottas taking the lead, Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc collided, causing Red Bull riders to fall to T18 and then give up. The Leclerc car broke its front spoiler and had to enter the pit in round 4. The Monaco driver continued to race and finished sixth.

The organizers announced that the result of the last lap was not counted due to the black and white checkered flag. This makes a rare occurrence. Sergio Perez's car lost control and crashed into the barrier in the final round, but the Racing Point team driver was still counted as ninth because the result counted in 52 laps. Nico Hulkenberg fell to 10th and Perez's teammate Lance Stroll lost points by dropping to 11.

Bottas' victory means that Mercedes has won the F1 title for the sixth consecutive year. The German racing team was more or less struggling after the summer break when Ferrari rode up. However, Mercedes won the last two races. One of their two drivers will be crowned in the individual race, and that person is most likely Lewis Hamilton because he is leading teammate Bottas 64 points when the season is 4 stages.
