Warm weather with a chance of showers in Austria

2014 Austrian Grand Prix weather

Fine conditions are expected for the first Austrian Grand Prix in 11 years this Sunday, but there is a chance of showers during the build-up to the race.

Temperatures have struggled to get above 20C over the past few days in Zeltweg, just outside the Red Bull Ring. Although they will climb over the coming days, that will bring with it an increased chance of rain.

After five consecutive days without rain, there is a chance of thunderstorms on Friday around the time of the first and second practice sessions. This should bring some relief from the rising humidity at the track.

There is a reduced chance of further storms on Saturday, after which the clouds will clear and conditions will improve. By Sunday air temperatures could be as high as 27C.

For more updates on the track conditions during each session keep an eye on F1 Fanatic Live and the F1 Fanatic Twitter account.

  1. No rain :(

    By the way, it’s funny the FIA didn’t choose the longest straight as a DRS zone.

  2. It must be getting statistically improbable by now, how many times over the past couple of years we have had rain interfere with the practice sessions but not the race.

  3. Please rain in the race!!! Why is it that we always have wet practise, wet qualy but no wet race!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    1. Some say, Bernie can even control the weather…
