Formula 1 can expect three days of consistently warm and often sunny weather throughout the British Grand Prix weekend.
Friday will see sunshine through much of the late morning and air temperatures rising to 24C. Saturday and Sunday are expected to be a little cloudier with periodic spells of sunshine, but the mercury should nudge past 25C on both days.
An unexpected rise in race day temperatures caught out some teams in Austria and left them struggling with their tyres. Pirelli is bringing harder rubber to this race including, for the first time this year, the hard tyre. It is also bringing its thinner tread tyres which should help teams combat blistering on what has previously been a tough track for rubber.
The wind, which can catch drivers out on the high-speed turns of the former airfield circuit, is not expected to be very strong. The threat of rain is uncommonly low for Silverstone.
