Round 17 - Japan

Recommended Posts

Getting up early on a Sunday sucks though. Oh well, still my favourite track, and the Japanese supporters are always amazing, and a little crazy.

I think I'll pull an all nighter and go to bed after the race xD

Hmm, but then I'll miss most of Sunday. I like daytime :P Well, I'll wait for the weather reports. If it's going to rain all day, it might be an option :D

Mercedes are rumoured to bring their final big upgrade to Suzuka. 

RB with a new fuel that is supposed to unlock full performance of the engine. Some rumours about new aero upgrades but nothing substantial at this point.

Definitely one of my favourite tracks. There's so much history on this track too. Some classic races. Love the layout too.

The early weather forecast do not look good at all... Typhoon seems to be forming and should be hitting Japan with all its fury next weekend.

Do they ever have weather delays?

Yes definitely. All sessions (including the race) can be postponed (and have been in the past) and even canceled if the weather conditions are deemed too dangerous.

Ah well, at least I can go straight back to bed on Sunday if there's no race.

Do they postpone or just cancel?

Depends. I remember qualifying being postponed until Sunday morning just before the race. I don't recall any F1 race being postponed or completely canceled before the start but there have been quite a few that have been red-flagged and not resumed.

I think what would happen here if the weather conditions were too dangerous is that they'd all drive a few laps behind the safety car, then red-flag the race and award half points.

Fast and narrow track. Rain would make it awesome.

As it stands now Friday and Sunday should be ok - but Saturday's qualifying might be affected.

Qualifying can be moved to Sunday before the race if need be. 

At this point it looks that Saturday might be a no-go for both FP3 and quali. The weather should improve a lot for Sunday but it's expected to stay windy.

Trust me; I tried for years xD Getting up early for school, then getting up even earlier to go to work before uni classes, then getting up early for work... Never worked for me. When I first started working remotely full-time I actually tried to adjust to a "normal" schedule; I would get up at 6:30 or 7am, make coffee, maybe have a small breakfast if I felt like it. Then put on some music and start working in order to be done with it around 4pm and enjoy the rest of the day - hit the beach, go out, have a few drinks, etc., then go to bed at around midnight. That worked for about two weeks and then it made me really miserable xD Can't beat your internal clock.
