Formula 1 has stumbled right into the biggest typhoon to hit Japan for 10 years with winds of 75mph expected to hit the Mie prefecture, where Suzuka is located just a couple of miles inland from the sea, on Saturday afternoon. The storm is expected to bring rainfall of around 24 inches in the Mie prefecture in the course of 24 hours. This is expected to result in flooding in many areas.
