Lewis Hamilton dominates Japanese GP practice after crash scare

Final practice and qualifying is on 5 live sports extra and the BBC Sport website from 04:00 BST on Saturday

Lewis Hamilton was in scintillating form as Mercedes dominated Friday practice at the Japanese Grand Prix.

He was 0.833 seconds clear of title rival Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari, and 0.461secs faster than team-mate Valtteri Bottas at the Suzuka track.

Hamilton was even faster on the ‘soft’ tyre, the middle compound this weekend, than Vettel was on the fastest ‘super-soft’.

The Briton also narrowly avoided a huge crash in first practice.

His pace was reflected in his mood, saying over the radio: “This track is awesome. I’m having the best day.”
