Japanese Grand Prix organisers have tweaked the timetable for next October’s race at Suzuka, with Sunday’s race starting an hour earlier than usual.

Formula 1 amended the championship’s 2020 schedule, announcing that the Japanese Grand Prix will start at 13h10 local time, or 04h10 GMT (06h10 CET).

However, Friday’s free practice will start an hour later, with the day’s 90-minute sessions starting respectively at 11h00 and 15h00 local time.

Saturday’s running remains unchanged, with FP3 starting at 12h00 and qualifying beginning at 15h00 local time.

Check out here-under the timing for each round of the 22-race 2020 calendar.
