Should be an interesting race. It's almost certain it is going to rain at some point tomorrow and Sunday (most of the time from 4pm following), it's just a matter of a) how much rain there is going to be and b) when it'll hit the track.

Let's just hope we can get it finished this time.

Latest weather models point towards an increasing chance of afternoon storms on Saturday.

Groundhog day will begin as usual with hazy sunshine and a few clouds around, but the progression to cloudy and then overcast conditions is expected to occur sooner than it did today. The risk of heavy showers will already be high by the time final practice begins - and that storm risk only increases as we move through to qualifying.

The maximum temperature will reach 30 degrees Celsius, but this may not be a factor given the higher chance of storm cells forming.

Race day also has the potential for storms, but latest model calculations suggest the risk is slightly less than on Saturday. The day will start dry with some sunshine around, but into the afternoon cloud cover will build, with the main storm risk occurring from around 16:00 local time - the start time for the race.

Given the weather models predict increasing convective potential energy, and therefore risk of thundery showers, we rate the chance of rain affecting Saturday running at 80 percent, dropping slightly to 70 percent for Sunday.

Judging by the weather, I reckon we're in for a Brazil 09 style qualifying...
