Hot and dry conditions for Spanish Grand Prix

2015 Spanish Grand Prix weather

Nico Rosberg, Mercedes, Circuit de Catalunya, 2015Sunny and very warm weather is forecast for the Spanish Grand Prix – although the hottest conditions will be seen before the competitive action takes place.

The mercury will be approaching 30C when the cars take to the track for the second practice session to hone their set-ups for race day. The grand prix itself is expected to see slightly cooler conditions, with air temperatures reaching a maximum of 27C.

However a generous helping of Sunday sunshine should make for some hot track temperatures which, combined with the punishing nature of the Catalunya track, will make severe demands of Pirelli’s hard and medium tyre compounds.

The more exposed parts of the circuit, particularly the high-speed Campsa corner, can be tricky for drivers when the wind is high. Friday is expected to be fairly gusty, but conditions will settle as the weekend goes on, and the threat of rain is negligible.

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