Formula 1 has a “contingency plan” as poor air quality threatens this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix.

A dense haze has descended on the city following forest fires in neighbouring Indonesia.

It has seen air pollution levels fall to a three-year low, prompting Singapore’s National Environment Agency to warn people to “reduce prolonged or strenuous outdoor physical exertion”.

Japanese GP news, updates, practice 2 results, weather, Typhoon Hagibis, Formula 1, Valtteri Bottas

Published

Valtteri Bottas beat Lewis Hamilton again as Mercedes dominated Friday at the Japanese GP, although Red Bull and Ferrari closed the gap in a crucial second — and final — practice at Suzuka.

It was a busier-than-usual session because of the cancellation of Practice Three on Saturday, due to the predicted impact of Typhoon Hagibis, while it is also potentially race-critical as the results of P2 will form the starting grid should qualifying — moved to Sunday morning because of the weather threat — not take place.

And it was Bottas who topped P2 with a 1:22.785 in dry conditions, acing his qualifying sim to edge Hamilton despite a spin before his first flying lap.

Scott McLaughlin lowered the lap record for the second time in as many days, but Practice 5 at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 claimed a major victim.

With a quarter of the 60-minute session remaining, Jamie Whincup — who was fastest in Practice 1 on Thursday — crashed on entry into The Dipper as he avoided Richie Stanaway’s accident.

Stanaway put his #33 Boost Mobile Racing entry into the tyre barriers down through Skyline, and Whincup — just behind — managed to avoid the stricken car.

Valtteri Bottas edged out Lewis Hamilton in an impressive start for Mercedes at the start of what is set to prove a condensed Japanese GP weekend.

With the expected impact of Typhoon Hagibis meaning all Saturday’s running has been cancelled and qualifying moved to Sunday morning at Suzuka — four hours ahead of the race — teams have just two practice sessions to prepare their cars.

In bright, warm and calm conditions on Friday morning, Mercedes made by far the fastest start with Bottas and Hamilton one second clear of the chasing pack.
