  1. Once again there is a conflict of time between MotoGP and F1 race this weekend with both race having similar weather predictions.

    1. They are two different things, different organizations, different governing bodies. F1 collides with many other sporting events, with Roland Garros this weekend.

      1. Yes but generally FIM and FOM avoid conflicting schedules(down to start times until last weekend F1 races started 15-25mins after end of MotoGP) as much as possible for their respective top categories(MotoGP and F1). But this weekend F1 is starting at 17.40hrs(IST) while MotoGP is starting at 16.30hrs(IST) place swapped with Moto2 which is starting 18.00hrs. For both races weather predictions are quite similar with heavy rain expected which is going to make both those races extremely interesting.

        1. @Chaitanya Not F1’s fault especially under the COVID-circumstanes when they had to get as many races a possible to make up for the lost events, etc., so no chance to take into account other categories and events and the same the other way round. There’s simply too many things in the world to avoid weekend clashes altogether given that there are 52/53 weeks in a year and only a certain amount of these are available for the races, so generally no point in making a fuss out of these things.

    2. That’s an easy one. Don’t watch the MotoGP

  2. Is the race happening one hour before to take advantage of the mid-day heat (in case the weather is clear)?

    1. Sunset would be less than 4 hours after race start with a 15:10 start.

  3. @wsrgo No heat in Nurburgring’s climate zone in October, LOL.
    @f1mre Yes, as the sunset time for the race day is 18:48, so there’d indeed be less than four hours until it with 15:10 instead of 14:10. For this same reason, also Portimao and Imola have earlier start times than the first nine European events of this season.

    1. Possibly a degree or two warmer at these hours, so it’s a good thing

      1. @paeschli Not necessarily. The air temp stays more or less the same throughout the afternoon and especially during the hours of 14:00 and 15:00, so no relevant difference there. The starting time is solely about the sunest time to give more flexibility in potential race disruption or delaying scenario having 60 minutes more till the sunset compared to with 15:10.

        1. @paeschli The Portuguese and Emilia-Romagna GPs have 13:10 as the local start time with sunset times of 17:44 and 17:01, respectively. The Turkish GP also shares the same local starting time having 17:45 as the sunset time for its race day. The Japanese GP was also supposed to commence at 13:10 this year before its cancellation, so it will probably keep 13:10 for next year. The sunset times in Suzuka at this time of October are around 17:25, so I’m surprised this change from 14:10 to 13:10 didn’t happen earlier if it was solely to give 60 more minutes to scope for potential distruptions until daylight starts to fade.
