With tires, traction, grip, and direction changes, all teams and drivers must aim for the ideal setup for a successful weekend. Within a maximum speed of 315 km/h and an average of roughly 230 km/h, the 5.81 km track requires drivers to drive carefully due to its combination of fast and slow bends.

The circuit has 18 corners total—10 on the right and 8 on the left. Since Suzuka lacks tarmac run-off places, drivers must ensure that their tires remain on the track at all times to avoid going off the track. The track is anticipated to hold 155,000 people, and there have been times when there were extremely large crowds.
