Mercedes can “push the car further than before”, according to Valtteri Bottas, after an impressive start with an upgraded W10 at the Japanese GP – leaving Ferrari fearing their rivals are back ahead this weekend.

Friday’s practice sessions at Suzuka took on extra importance owing to the impact the incoming Typhoon Hagibis is already having on the F1 schedule. The track will be closed on Saturday, with qualifying moved to Sunday morning and Practice Three cancelled altogether.
