Oct.2 (GMM) Just as Formula One sets up at the Yeongam circuit, a typhoon is headed for Korea.

The state news agency Yonhap said Typhoon Fitow is currently scheduled to hit the very south of South Korea on race-day Sunday.

And the Chosun Ilbo daily said the typhoon is expected to bring "a lot of rain" and gusty winds.

If the typhoon does strike, it will not be the first time bad weather has affected the Korean Grand Prix.

In 2010, heavy rain delayed the start of F1's first race in Korea.
