Volcano could affect Japan GP – report

Japanese GP Lewis Hamilton.600An erupting volcano is threatening to affect this weekend’s Japanese grand prix.

On Saturday, Mount Ontake – located less than 200 kilometres from the Suzuka circuit – erupted, killing dozens.

Smoke, ash and poisonous gas is still billowing from the volcano, and Germany’s Bild newspaper reports that just as F1 personnel are flying into Japan, many flights about being delayed or diverted.

“Race organisers hope that all the drivers will have arrived in time for the first practice session on Friday,” said correspondent Nicola Pohl. (GMM)
