Singapore, 2012

Hot and humid weekend expected in Singapore

2012 Singapore Grand Prix weatherPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

Singapore, 2012F1’s annual Singapore race may be held after nightfall but the conditions invariably remain hot and humid.

It’s easy to exaggerate the likelihood of thunderstorms affecting the race here – at present the official F1 website forecasts one every day throughout the race weekend. That does not necessarily mean they will happen, or that they will coincide with the race.

Thunderstorms are most likely to happen in the late morning or early afternoon – before the F1 cars take to the track. And the chance of thunderstorms will decrease as the race weekend goes on.

This fits in with what we’ve seen at previous Singapore Grands Prix, so the chances are good that teams will get dry practice and qualifying sessions and a dry race.

Expect temperatures to start above 30C, and fall slowly once the track action begins. Last year air temperatures remained above 30C throughout the race with the track temperatures no lower.

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