After a completely dry race at Monza, more exciting weather awaits us in Singapore. According to Weather.com, Formula 1 teams should expect high temperatures and thunderstorms throughout the weekend. This means that the premier class of motorsport returns to the weather conditions before the race weekend at Monza, when it rained for several weekends in a row.
In Singapore, where the climate differs considerably from that of Europe, heat and humidity are the usual conditions. During the Singapore Grand Prix this weekend we can expect temperatures between 27 and 33 degrees Celsius. In addition, there are forecasts of showers throughout the race weekend, some of which may be accompanied by thunder.
The teams and drivers will probably be lucky on Friday, especially during the evening sessions before the free practice sessions, as the chance of rain is only twenty percent. Skies are expected to be clear with some passing clouds. Despite the dry conditions on Friday, it will be a challenge for a team at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. The data that the racing stables collect may not be useful at all for the rest of the weekend.
Another rainy Grand Prix
However, on Saturday and Sunday, when qualifying and the Grand Prix take place, the weather looks less rosy. There is a sixty percent chance of precipitation on Saturday, and there is even a risk of thunderstorms later in the evening. On Sunday there is an eighty percent chance of rain during the day, although this will decrease to sixty percent in the evening. There is also a possibility of thunderstorms again on Sunday.
In short, it promises to be a chaotic race, with teams having to make strategic decisions. Despite the fact that most rain is expected during the day, teams must take into account a possible wet or drying track. However, it is important to note that the teams and drivers have already gained experience racing in wet conditions this season.
