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.
