The threat of catastrophic weather has eased in South Korea. Earlier, it was feared Typhoon Fitow would strike the country's southern region on Sunday, threatening the running of the Korean grand prix.

But German sources SID and the newspaper Bild, and the local daily Chosun Ilbo, say the typhoon has now changed course, and is expected to hit mainland China on Sunday or Monday instead. However, the reports say heavy rain and wind could still hit Sunday's race in Yeongam. "Rain is predicted; perhaps really heavy rain," revealed world champion Sebastian Vettel. "We don't know exactly what's coming." (GMM)
