Where is the Japanese Grand Prix?
The race takes place at the Suzuka International Racing Course, which has traditionally been the home of Formula One in Japan.
The Japanese Grand Prix was first held at Fuji Speedway in 1976 and 1977, before a nine-year hiatus saw it off the calendar until 1987, when Suzuka hosted its first Formula One Grand Prix.
The track has staged events ever since with the exception of 2007 and 2008 when the race returned to Fuji.
When is the Japanese Grand Prix?
The race is scheduled to start at 2:10 p.m. local time (1:10 a.m. ET) on Sunday, October 13.

The race will also be available on ESPN+ and via WatchESPN.com, while Sling TV, Hulu, YouTube TV and PlayStation Vue will all offer a live stream.
