Typhoon threat for the F1 2019 Japanese Grand Prix!

The Japanese Grand Prix weekend could be set to be hit by a typhoon during the race weekend in a few days' time, bringing up the possibility of a wet weekend at Suzuka Circuit.

Saturday is set to be the worst day of the weekend, with typhoon Hagibis approaching from the south.

If qualifying is too wet, we could see a repeat of 2004 and 2010, where the session had to be moved to early Sunday after weather prevented any action taking place on Saturday.

Steffen Dietz, former official meteorologist for F1, tweeted the warnings.
