2012 Belgian Grand Prix weather forecastPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

Adrian Sutil, Force India, Spa-Francorchamps, 2011Rain and Spa go together like frites and mayonnaise.

But although a spell of wet weather does feature in the forecast for this weekend, at the moment it is not expected to affect the race.

Friday’s two practice sessions are the most likely to see wet running. After that the rain is expected to clear up with a good chance of a dry qualifying session and race.

But this region is notorious for its rapidly-changing weather conditions and there may be changes in the forecast between now and Sunday.

Temperatures are likely to be on the cool side to begin with. Although the weekend will get warmer the maximum temperature is likely to be no higher than around 17C. Tomorrow will be a chilly 11C.

There will be regular updates on the track conditions during each session on F1 Fanatic Live and the F1 Fanatic Twitter account.
