Mercedes go into Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix hoping to show that their baffling lack of pace in Singapore was just a one-off but Lewis Hamilton and team mate Nico Rosberg need some convincing.Eclipsed in qualifying after 11 poles in 12 races, Hamilton suffered his first retirement of the season in Singapore and saw his lead over Rosberg cut to 41 points with six rounds remaining.On a tight and twisty circuit, the previously dominant Mercedes was a second and a half slower than Sebastian Vettel's winning Ferrari.The Briton, winner of seven races this season and still firmly on course for a third title, can consider himself fortunate.The race could also be a farewell from Button, a winner at Suzuka in 2011, to his Japanese fans if speculation that he is set to quit the sport at the end of the season are accurate.
