High temperatures are expected for the 2023 F1 United States Grand Prix in Austin, with similar temperatures to those experienced in Qatar.

Drivers complained that the temperatures experienced during the race at the Lusail International Circuit were close to the limit post-race, owing to the mix of humidity, high ambient temperatures, 18-lap stints mandated by the FIA and Pirelli and high G-forces of the fast track.

While temperatures will reach highs close to those in Qatar, it is not expected to produce the same outcome with slower sections of the Circuit of the Americas allowing drivers time to rest.

Sunshine expected throughout weekend

According to our friends at WeerOnline.com, Friday and Saturday are almost identical days in terms of weather, with Grand Prix qualifying set for Friday on what is a Sprint race weekend.

There is plenty of sunshine in store with temperatures rising to warmer than usual at this time of year in Texas

The evenings will also be hot, with the Sprint set to get underway at 17:00pm local time temperatures mostly between 26 and 28 degrees Celsius in the vicinity of the circuit.

On Sunday, race day starts out sunny, but with a layer of cloud cover over the circuit. Rain is not expected to factor, but the temperatures will drop as a result.

The wind is expected to be from the south to south-east - essentially a tail-wind down the pit-straight and cross-wind through the Sector 1 esses and back-straight at a weak 2kph.
