The schedule of the Japanese Grand Prix press conference has been announced. The most interesting moment is Thursday afternoon when Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc take their turn at the same time to speak to the global press.

Leclerc and Verstappen speaking at the same time

In Japan, Verstappen has another chance to take his second F1 title. In Singapore, the Dutchman was way off, but even if he had won the race, Leclerc and Sergio Perez should not have scored well. In Japan, Verstappen has it all to himself; with a win and the fastest lap, the Red Bull Racing driver takes his second F1 title.

As it could be a celebratory weekend for Verstappen and even more so for team partner Honda, the Dutchman is present at the FIA press conference. Verstappen is classified with his title rival of this year at 13:35 local time. Sitting next to Leclerc and Verstappen are Zhou Guanyu, Daniel Ricciardo and George Russell. Half an hour earlier, during the first session, Yuki Tsunoda, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel, Kevin Magnussen and Nicholas Latifi will take their turn.

The remaining ten drivers will appear in two different groups for the TV crews present at the Japanese circuit. Of course, you will be the first to know about all the drivers' expectations and statements on Thursday at GPBlog.com.
