19 degrees celsius is the highest temperature predicted all weekend. Friday will see the highest chance of rain. Current forecasts say that there is a 40% chance of rain during FP1 and FP2. It could leave the drivers having to deal with some wet running.

Things get a bit warmer on Saturday with highs predicted of 22C. And it also could be a drier one than Friday with no chance of rain being forecast. FP3 and qualifying take place on Saturday. And after potential wet conditions on Friday, FP3 could be hugely important as the drivers try and get some dry running in before qualification.

The settled conditions continue on Sunday according to forecasts. There’s again a high predicted of 22C. The chance of rain is once again very less. It means very similar conditions could play out over the two weekend days.
