The start of the race is difficult for everyone due to weather conditions. David Checa performs a double stint on 13th position.

Jongdari typhoon arrived on Suzuka.

Rain and wind and are terrible. Nature is unleashed and the organizers have folded everything, all tidy, before the storm.

Calm should come back quickly and we wish that everyone will be safe, will have found a shelter and that there will be the least possible damages.

At the end of the first day of free practice, Corentin Perolari is 24th in the provisional standings.
