Ashley Reece by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-27, 29-27) F1 is now set for a super Sunday of action at the Japanese GP with qualifying to take place before the race itself at Suzuka. The threat of Typhoon Hagibis has resulted in Saturday's action being cancelled and qualifying moved to Sunday, four hours before the Grand Prix starts. The threat of the typhoon means qualifying could also be wiped away, meaning the grid would line up from the results of the second practice session on Friday which would spell trouble for Daniel Ricciardo. "We got an unexpected day off on Saturday but I'm sure the team will keep me busy," Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas said after leading Friday's final practice. Red Bull driver Max Verstappen, third fastest in the final practice, had a plan in place to spend the down time on Saturday. Kevin Magnussen — Haas — +1.964
