Qualifying will get underway at 2am… just FOUR hours before the race

Just in case you had been living under a rock in the last few days. The typhoon that has wrecked havoc in Japan and also led to disruption to other sports including the Rugby World Cup. It of course led to the axing of Saturday’s running at Suzuka, with final practice canned and qualifying being moved to 2am BST on Sunday morning.

Thinking of calling it a night? Not so fast! We’ve got plenty to keep you going right through until breakfast as I welcome you to a double serving of action from Suzuka starting with qualifying and then of course the Japanese Grand Prix later.

So good evening/morning and welcome to our live coverage.
