A rather different looking podium last time in Singapore

Eyes will be on the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday 27 September 2015 at Suzuka as fans wait to see whether the reversal of fortunes last time out in Singapore was a blip or a sign that the balance of power in Formula One racing has again changed.
