24 hours ago, rivers of rain were washing down the sloping pitlane, rekindling memories of 2010 when torrential conditions forced the rescheduling of qualifying.

"It's raining in Japan," veteran Swiss correspondent Roger Benoit, writing in Blick newspaper, reported from Suzuka late on Wednesday.

"But for the weekend no wet weather is expected -- except a champagne shower for Vettel's world championship celebration."

Added O Estado de S.Paulo journalist Livio Oricchio: "I saw on TV that the forecast is good for the weekend -- at least that's what I understood from the pictures."

Indeed, Thursday at the Honda-owned venue was described on Twitter by the Mercedes team as "lovely".
