Coming up to the Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka there is some concern about whether or not it will even take place, thanks to Typhoon Hagibis which is heading towards Japan right now.
#Hagibis has explosively intensified and is now already a super typhoon! (= hurricane category 4)— Steffen Dietz (@sdietzf1) October 7, 2019
Track forecast towards Japan and #F1 is quite consistent. Likelihood for any impact is high, however, details remain uncertain at this stage. (1/2)

Assuming the race does go ahead, it’s likely to be a wet one which always adds an extra element to any race, Suzuka is a driver and fan favourite for the well designed track which is fantastic for racing.
Ferrari’s performance has been the benchmark recently and Lewis Hamilton has said he thinks they will be tough to beat again in Japan. But Mercedes could seal the Constructors Championship and match the all time record of winning six Constructor Championships in a row.
