Japanese GP qualifying postponed

Qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix will not take place today after hours of heavy rain made it impossible for the session to be run.

The session is now expected to take place at 10am local time tomorrow morning to set the grid for the race, which will start just four hours after the postponed session is scheduled to end.

This is the second time in five races at Suzuka that qualifying has been postponed to Sunday. In 2004 the approaching typhoon Ma-on led the race organisers to hold qualifying on Sunday instead of Saturday.
