We're going to wrap up our live page now. Huge thanks as ever for your company and contributions.
We're back from 05:00 BST with race build-up from Suzuka, where Nico Rosberg will bid to convert pole into a ninth win of the year and with it further strengthen his grip on the drivers' championship.
In the meantime, I've been googling things that are more or less the same size as the 82cm that Mercedes say separated their cars in qualifying.
The results of this exhaustive research are posted below for your information.
See you tomorrow.
