Singapore’s distinctive weather system produces spectacular thunderstorms, however they’re not likely to affect the action on the track this weekend.
F1 Fanatics in the area have reported rain in recent days. However as usual these storms tend to pass before the track action starts in the evening.
With temperatures hitting 30C in the day and not dropping below the mid-20s at night, the track dries up quickly.
As we saw last year the first practice session, which begins two hours earlier than the race, is most at risk of seeing moisture on the track.
This would be a setback for the drivers who need to learn the track, such as Paul di Resta: “We will also need to keep any eye on the weather because any rain storms could hamper things,” he said.
“I just hope we get some dry weather while I learn the track.”
As usual updated weather information will be available via the Weather tab in F1 Fanatic Live during all the race weekend sessions. Keep an eye on the local conditions with this rain radar:
