Rain possible during practice but race should be dry

2014 Malaysian Grand Prix weatherPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

Adrian Sutil, Force India, Sepang, 2013The searing heat and humidity of Malaysia will be a particular challenge for the teams this year as they enter their second race of F1’s new engine formula.

Air temperatures will, as usual, be well above 30C, but it’s the energy-sapping humidity which drivers will feel the most after 56 laps of the Sepang International Circuit.

The other dependable characteristic of the local weather is late afternoon downpours. The initial indication is a thunderstorm could arrive early enough on Friday to interfere with practice.

The frequency of the storms is expected to lessen over the next two days, with the race having a good chance of being run in hot, dry and sunny conditions.
