McLaren will definitely have an advantage down the straights. I do sincerely hope for big time rain though, I'm not getting up at 2am to watch a procession!

:::

Sauber, Ferrari, Williams and Mercedes are tipped to all be running a McLaren-style ‘F-duct’ system during Friday practice in Shanghai.

this is mclaren's chance to close the gap - at least to ferrari......as ferrari is busy testing their f-duct version, mclaren should try to pounce on other car developments to further boost the car's speed/performance.

Weather update: Heavy rain for the race

In the lead-up to the seventh Chinese Grand Prix, Shanghai has experienced some cold and wet weather over the past few days. Today has seen the rain clear away to the east and the theme is one of improving conditions for Friday and Saturday.

Temperatures are still very much on the low side, reaching just nine degrees Celsius today. Overnight the mercury will dip to a chilly four degrees as the skies clear.

Practice and qualifying: A place in the sun

Tomorrow will dawn dry with clear skies, but quite cold. An area of high pressure - and with it a warmer air mass - will push in from the south-west gradually. Both practice sessions will be dry with the afternoon temperature during second practice peaking at 12 Celsius.

Saturday will begin to slowly herald a change - especially into the evening. It will remain dry throughout, with the final practice and qualifying sessions taking place in mainly sunny conditions, but patches of cloud will become more prominent during the afternoon as the beginnings of the change comes in from the west. The temperature will rise once again, with a maximum of 16 Celsius.

Sunday washout?

Then, as most of you know by now, we are set for a big change. On Monday when we first published a forecast for Shanghai, the warning signs of a shift to wet weather were beginning to surface. Over the last 72 hours the forecast models have shown significant evolution of a low pressure system bringing showers and some heavy spells of rain.

The latest prognosis is that Shanghai can expect the showers and prolonged rainfall to arrive shortly after dawn on race morning, with the window of wet weather lasting at least until the end of the day. The flow of warm air will continue as this system is driven across eastern China, with a maximum air temperature of around 18 degrees Celsius.

It will be a difficult situation for the teams if the current forecast becomes reality, with the prospect of four dry sessions that could prove nothing if Sunday is wet.

We will keep a close eye on developments and look again at the Sunday prospects in our next update tomorrow, but before then we have two 90-minute sessions of free practice to enjoy. AUTOSPORT Live's minute-by-minute coverage of first practice begins on Friday at 01:45 GMT. We hope you can join us then.


And it looks as if the BBC will be without Eddie Jordan for Saturday at least as he cannot leave Britain until at least 6am Friday morning due to the dust

This is a good development having former drivers work with the stewards. I think in Malaysia, Hamilton would have been banned for like 5 races for weaving with Petrov had a driver not been on the stewards panel.
