Heavy rain showers forecast

Formula One could be in for a very wet Korean Grand Prix as Typhoon Fitow will be in the area.

Although initial reports predicted that the typhoon would hit the circuit, updated reports now suggest it will head towards China instead.

However, the Korean International Circuit in Yeongam would still get the fringes of the weather which includes high winds and heavy rain.

At present there is a 60 percent chance of "heavy rain showers" when the 55-lap grand prix is set to start at 3pm local time on Sunday.

Heavy rain fall in 2010 meant the grand prix started behind the Safety Car before conditions were deemed safe enough for the drivers to be let loose.

As for the rest of this weekend, the forecast is for sunny weather on Friday with a high of 22'C and a few clouds on Saturday where the tempeture will reach a high of 23'C.
