As far as the weather forecast goes – we’re still expecting rain to continue throughout the night but conditions are expected to improve by Sunday morning, with no wet weather anticipated during the race.

So, a green track awaits us in the morning, with pretty much nothing to go on as far as data goes since we’ve had so little running so far this weekend.

Die hard fans who stuck it out and braved the weather were rewarded when the FIA opened up the pitlane and allowed them all in! Bet you wish you had been there right now!
