Prolonged rain in the days and weeks leading up to the race and more rain on practice day left thousands of spectators struggling to make it in through the mud. Some were advised not to turn up on Saturday. Fortunately on Sunday it brightened up and the race was run on a dry track.
Silverstone will be spared anything as bad as we saw last year. Rain is forecast for the first day of practice, with both sessions likely to see some rain, but after that conditions will improve.
The sun should being to peek through the clouds on Saturday, bringing temperatures up towards 20C. Things will continue in that fashion on Sunday as the cloud cover continues to lighten, though it is expected to be windier on race day.
