Japanese Formula 1 fans descend on Suzuka for the grand prix weekend energised with a passion that is unique to the country, as they go out of their way to show their admiration for drivers and teams by dressing up in their favourite colours and flaunting them.

There was a time during the Ayrton Senna heyday when tickets were sold by lottery such was the demand, the late great Brazilian remains one of the most loved and respected sporting idols in Japan.

However, the passion for the current generation is also evident, with support for teams and drivers across the grid including the minnows.

Suzuka is owned by Honda and of course support for the Japanese manufacturer on home soil is big and Toro Rosso – perhaps even Red Bull – costumes are likely to feature prominently.
