Dry weather expected in Turkey

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

The long-range weather forecast for next week’s Turkish Grand Prix suggests a dry weekend’s racing in prospect.

Temperatures are expected to be around 20 degrees on all three days with minimal chance of rain.

This is somewhat cooler temperatures than the race used to in its original late-summer place on the calendar. In 2008 the race was moved from August to May, meaning the race is held in less blazing temperatures than it used to be.

This has helped ease tyre wear concerns at one of the most punishing tracks on the calendar. Drivers will use the soft and hard compounds in this year’s race, the same which were used last year.
