The Suzuka Circuit is a thrilling track very much appreciated by drivers and fans for the numerous overtaking opportunities it offers. Shaped more or less like an eight, the circuit’s numerous bends and long straights make it a challenging and appreciated track, full of hard braking zones and acceleration.
The track also includes a bridge at Turn 14, offering a unique sight in Formula 1. To view the action at the Bridge, we recommend you to purchase tickets in the impressive V-shaped Grandstand G. The circuit also hosts some of the calendar’s most famous corners, such as the characteristically shaped Spoon Curve.
2019 Japanese Grand Prix weather forecast (Weather Suzuka):
A violent typhoon could interrupt proceedings at this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix, which hosts the 17th round of the 2019 season.
Typhoon Hagibis is on course to hit Japan later in the week, with the storm now considered a Category 5 Super Typhoon with maximum wind gust speed gusts of 270km/h (167 mph).
The storm is expected to diminish as it reaches land, as it is currently roughly over 300 kilometres north of the Northern Mariana Islands.
The Japanese GP in 2014 was hit by Typhoon Phanfone, with the race being overshadowed by a crash for Jules Bianchi, who would lose his life nine months later due to the injuries sustained.
10 years prior to that in 2004, Typhoon Ma-On caused Saturday’s qualifying session to be postponed to Sunday morning.
