It's going to be hard to beat Lewis Hamilton from here.
That's the read on the Formula 1 Championship race after the Brit cruised to victory at Suzuka.
Nothing's going right for Sebastian Vettel since the summer break with the German forced to park the Ferrari in the early laps after "losing power."
The team later put it down to a faulty spark plug.
That opened the door for the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo to assume podium spots and all important points in the constructors (teams) championship.
Hamilton now leads the drivers championship by a nearly impenetrable 59 points.
In fact, he'll be crowned World Champion for the fourth time as early as the United States Grand Prix in Texas later this month.
While one Brit prepares to clinch the title, another's getting ready for (probably) early F1 retirement.
Jolyon Palmer's final race for Renault ended with a 12th place finish.
Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz nabs his seat for the next race in two weeks time in America.
Oh, and Daniel Ricciardo?
Well, we'll just leave you with this.
