Lotus Renault GPs Japanese GP Race Report is up, after a slightly disappointing race following on from the promise of practice and qualifying.
On his first pit stop on lap 18, Vitaly changed for another set of the Pirelli medium tyres before the safety car was deployed. He stopped once again 21 laps later, this time moving onto the soft tyres, which crucially allowed him to overtake both Force India cars and cross the finishing line in ninth position.
Bruno meanwhile suffered from a tricky first lap, slipping back four places into 13th. He adopted the same strategy as Vitaly (medium, medium, soft) as he endured a race full of traffic before crossing the line in 16th position.
