The last Grand Prix at the Nurburgring was hit by heavy rain and we could be in for a repeat this weekend.
Several weather sites are reporting a strong chance of rain at some point over the weekend, with race day looking the most likely to see wet conditions.
Weather Underground rates the chance of rain on Sunday at 50%. But qualifying on Saturday has only a 20% likelihood of being run in wet weather. Friday practice is also likely to see rainfall.
Although it is quite early to be making such a precise prediction, Weather2 says the track will be hit by 5.4mm of rain after noon on race day.
When F1 last raced at the track two years ago a huge downpour fell as the race began. The Grand Prix had to be suspended, but not before Spyker?óÔé¼Ôäós Markus Winkelhock had jumped into the lead by taking the gamble of starting on wet weather tyres.
The Nurburgring is notorious for its temperamental weather and has seen rain-affected races in 1995, 1999, 2000 and 2007.
