The 2022 Formula One (F1) Japanese Grand Prix motorsport event at the Suzuka International Racing Course is back this year after two years of the race being cancelled.

There are over 100 different betting markets for the Japanese GP that F1 gamblers can place wagers on.

Below is a list of predictions and betting tips for the Japanese Grand Prix that punters and bettors can choose from including race, qualifying, podium, specials and team bet tips.

The characteristics of the Suzuka circuit with the high-speed corners and high top speeds mean that both the Ferrari and Red Bull Racing teams have the best chance of winning this race as their cars suit the characteristics of this race track.

While Ferrari have shown on many occasions this year that they are fast over one lap, they will be hoping to be the fastest over the entire race distance in Japan and clinch the victory.

The smoother circuit at Suzuka should also mean that Mercedes are an outlier for a top result too as there tends to be less car porpoising at smoother surface tracks for the team.
