Dry weekend expected in Korea

With a new circuit and a greasy track surface to get to grips with, the last thing the drivers needs this weekend is rain. Fortunately for them the weather for the Korean Grand Prix looks likely to remain dry.

The Korean International Circuit is outside Mokpo in the southernmost portion of South Korea. October is a cool month in which temperatures generally range between 10-20C.

This summary of recorded temperatures and rainfall for last October in Mokpo gives a good general impression of the conditions to expect: not too warm, but dry.

The forecasts for the next three days put temperatures in the high teens and low 20s (C). It hasn’t rained in the area for over a week and that doesn’t seem likely to change during the F1 weekend.

    Small typo – last paragraph:

    It hasn’t rained in the area for over a week and that doesn’t seem likely to chance during the F1 weekend.

    Good job it’s not in the north of south Korea, then some journalists might say it’s located to the north of S Korea, and everybody interprets that as N Korea!! :|

  4. But formula1.com says it will rain on sunday! Don’t know how reliable their weather reports are, I know they’ve been wrong before, so you might be right.

    According to Lotus, the safety car had a huge moment at Turn 1, got 2 wheels off the track…going to be so slippery.

    According to what the Schumacher Brothers said in Korea on “Autosport” that rain may arrive on race day.Although Michael said that the track is looking very good for their team i.e.,in the dry but if it rains things will be different.

    i think even wiht a dry race we might have some suprises, so let the rain stay away this time.

  11. Been reading that there is a typhoon heading towards china which is why the weather for sunday is not so clear at the moment, so… meh I like a maverick grand prix.

    The BBC weatherman suggests there is an increasing, and now a pretty good chance of rain on sunday. At the start of the week he said it would be dry all week. This bloke has been pretty accurate with his forecasting this year, so worth a look: http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/weather/ianfergusson/2010/10/formula-one-weather-forecast-k.shtml
