It could be problematic if it rains and there are a couple of safety cars - because it will get dark early. Sunset is 7.20pm local time, but obvioulsy if its cloudy it will get dark earlier

Weather update: Light rain at the moment, and it looks as though a solid band of rain will hit the track in the next 2-3 hours.

Current radar image:

Seems as if some more rain is coming up anytime soon. RTL's coverage started, at the moment it's overcast but the conditions are still dry.

Barrichello concerned about visibility:

"After 5.30pm it becomes dodgy," said Barrichello. "Friday was very, very bad, although Saturday wasn't such a problem as we all programmed ourselves a little bit better.

"All the drivers asked the race director on Friday to see if they could make a change [to the start time] because it is far too late - but obviously there was no change."


Malaysia 2009 anyone? :lol:
