The Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix weekend could be marked by a mixed weather forecast, with rain expected to hit Suzuka. The fourth round of the 2024 season brings a change to the calendar, moving the race traditionally held in October to April, moving away from the height of Japan’s typhoon season. In 2019, the threat of a typhoon led to the cancellation of Saturday’s activities on the circuit, as well as Rugby World Cup matches, but such a threat does not present itself for this weekend, as indicated by RacingNews365’s meteorological partner, WeerOnline.

For Friday, the forecast is for temperatures around 21 degrees, with the possibility of rain affecting practices, and little wind to dissipate the weather fronts. On Saturday, during qualifying, cloudy weather is expected, with a maximum temperature of 17 degrees and a chance of rain in the evening.

On race day, with the start scheduled for 2pm local time, a westerly wind is forecast, accompanied by high humidity, but with little threat of rain. A westerly wind means a tailwind through 130R and a crosswind through the S of Sector 1, adding an extra element for drivers and teams to consider in their strategies and setups for the race.

This unpredictable weekend at Suzuka promises to add more excitement to the race, where teams and drivers will have to be prepared to quickly adapt to the changing weather conditions and make the most of them.
