Cape Town - Lewis Hamilton moves closer to grabbing the 2017 Drivers' title as Daniel Ricciardo hacks his Instagram feed... here are the top 5 moments of the Japanese GP.

A step closer

Hamilton led from the front with his win putting him in a fantastic position to grab the 2017 title.

Despite a strefful ending to the race with Red Bull's Max Verstappen tailing him until the last minute, Hamilton managed to dig deep and increase his lead at the top of the table by 59 points.

The winners took to the podium and after the customary celebrations, Ricciardo managed to get hold of Hamilton's phone and raided his Instagram in the most hilarious way.

On the Ferrari front, Vettel's engine woes continued as he was forced to retire the car after lap 1 due to spark plug issues, seriously denting his title pursuit. 

With that in mind, here are the top 5 moments of the Japanese GP:
