Hamilton overtakes Rosberg for lead
- From the section Formula 1
Lewis Hamilton takes the lead of the Japanese Grand Prix after passing his Mercedes team-mate and title rival Nico Rosberg around the outside of the fast Turn One at Suzuka.
The Brit had been behind Rosberg since the start of the rain-affected race, but made his move on lap 29 and pulled away to build a strong lead.
Hamilton went on to win the race but it was red-flagged towards the end after Marussia driver Jules Bianchi was taken to hospital unconscious after a crash.
