Rain expected across F1 weekend
Thursday 23 September 2010
Rain is forecast throughout the race weekend at the Singapore Grand Prix, presenting a new challenge for Formula One drivers of competing on a wet track under lights.
There were several thundery showers today, and more of the same is forecast for the following three days.
The first two Singapore night races were rain-free, meaning drivers do not know what to expect when racing begins with circuit lights reflecting off the Marina Bay track.
Ferrari's Felipe Massa said street circuits are always challenging in the wet, and "here it's also in the night, which can be even a little more difficult, so we need to be ready for everything."
