Rain could impact weekend
Unlike the torrential rain of last season, the weather is set fair with sunshine and a temperature of 28 degrees Celsius, with the higher-than-normal heat for the venue - given the event takes place earlier than in previous campaigns - set to play havoc with race strategies.
The chance of rain is set at 10 per cent, with the wind speed likely to reach highs of four miles per hour, though gusts may surpass this mark.
