Plenty to smile about for Vettel and Hulkenberg at the moment
The Japanese GP presents Sebastian Vettel with his first chance to wrap up a fourth successive World Championship and his weekend will begin with an appearance in the Drivers' Press Conference at Suzuka on Thursday - live on Sky Sports F1.
Fresh from his fourth win in a row last Sunday in Korea, the triple World Champion headlines a six-strong contingent of drivers which also includes a fellow German and Yeongam star in the shape of Nico Hulkenberg.
The Sauber ace, already highly-rated before his brilliant drive to fourth place in Korea, remains the favourite for a Lotus drive and his future is likely set to be a key topic of discussion on Thursday.
Joining the two Germans will be two Frenchmen, Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne and Charles Pic of Caterham, McLaren's Jenson Button, who considers Japan something of a home from home, and Williams' Pastor Maldonado.
Meanwhile, Friday's Teams' Press Conference includes six technical and management figures from up and down the pitlane, including Ferrari's Pat Fry, McLaren's Jonathan Neale and Toro Rosso's highly-regarded James Key.
So make sure you tune into both conferences live on Sky Sports F1, with the drivers' one at 7am on Thursday morning and the teams' an hour later following Practice Two on Friday.
