Lewis Hamilton produced an exhibition in Japan to record his eighth victory of the season and edge ever closer to clinching this year’s Formula One title.

Hamilton appeared to have his work cut out after he qualified behind pole-sitter and his main rival Nico Rosberg for Sunday’s race at a sun-drenched Suzuka.

But despite starting on the dirtier side of the track, Hamilton, who now joins his idol Ayrton Senna on 41 career victories, drew alongside his Mercedes team-mate before muscling his way through at turn two.

Rosberg dropped to fourth after falling off the track in his attempt to cling on to the lead, but he battled his way back to finish second with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel completing the podium places.
