This would be the Suzuka grill if there is no classification on Sunday

If the classification could not be held on Sunday morning, the grid will be set according to Friday's free. Ferrari somewhat away and Sainz was seventh.


Work is accumulated in Suzuka after the track activity is suspended on Saturday with a threat present, beyond Hagibis himself: if on Sunday there is no time to make a classification (due to the condition of the track after the passage of a Typhoon, for cleaning, because there was no time to prepare for the race), a legal vacuum can lead to the grid being set according to the times of the second free training. And this afternoon session on the Japanese track left Bottas as the fastest with Hamilton at a tenth and Verstappen, almost three.

They premiered front wing and would have been eliminated in Q1 if this had been the qualifying session, Ricciardo 17th and Hulkenberg, 18th, only in front of Williams. It already happened to them in France, with an aggressive package of improvements that served, be it redundancy, to improve. It would have been a disaster if this were the ultimate grill.
