Its my understanding that typhoon season in Japan covers a wide swath of the calendar. Granted, it is schedule on the tail end of the peak (August/September). Given the transportation schedule, you either have it in the spring (around Australia) or run into pushing it deeper into fall/winter than it already is.

Looking at the Pacific Typhoon season, the previous dates are recorded as:

2010: Jan 18-Dec 20 (quietest Typhoon season on record)
2011: Apr 11-Jan 1
2012: Jan 13 - Dec 29
2013: Jan 1 - Dec 3
2014: Jan 10 - Jan 1
2015: Jan 2 - Dec 23
2016: May 25 - Dec 28
2017: Jan 7 - Dec 26
2018: Dec 29 - Dec 29
2019: Dec 29 - ongoing

So if you wanted to avoid the risk of typhoon, the best time would appear to be Feb/Mar?

Right. Australia (first GP) this year was March 17th. Two weeks later is Bahrain. Do you do back to back to back weekends - Australia, Japan, Bahrain (which I expect would be tough on the team) or start the season earlier (which has it's own issues)? I don't think there are any good answers.

I love the Japanese GP and weather is always going unpredictable at all events (some have more risk than others). So IMHO, the current schedule is about as good as any.

NHK is predicting 1,000mm of rain for Sat and Sun in the Tokai (Suzuka) region. That is absolutely disastrous conditions.

With the prediction of 1m of rain in the region, I have to wonder what the drainage situation is for the circuit. While the weather looks to be better Sunday (things can very quickly improve after these pass), it might do damage on Saturday that can't be addressed before a Sunday GP.

On the plus side, it looks like the storm is tracking to the east, so I believe that means Suzuka may miss the larger storm surge and winds that would be on the east side of the storm.

Regardless, its a strong storm and someone is going to be in it's path.

Donít they still have a parc ferme rule after qualifying? If they use FP2 times, that might complicate things a little, but they should find a way

I believe that there are special rules/regulations for occasions when practice/qualifying takes place in the dry, and when the race is declared wet. This permits teams to make more adjustments than under normal circumstances.

I was thinking that some teams run older high mileage power units in FP1 and 2 (assuming they have them available), but then switch to the race/qualifying units for Saturday and Sunday. If my understanding is correct, I expect they will allow that to go ahead? Especially if the potential for Sunday qualifying still exists?

There is no issue here with parc ferme rules. I may be corrected, but they haven’t kicked in yet.

Did the teams know FP2 may count for the grid before the end of FP2. Did they treat part of it like an old school practice/qualifying?

It was mentioned as option B (A being Sunday qualy) for the grid pre FP2. I heard the commentary team confirm that. Only by a few minutes but before P2 started.
