Formula 1 moves on to Hungary for the final round before the summer break, with a mixed weather forecast potentially adding to the spectacle.

After a baking hot event at Paul Ricard, warm temperatures are also expected at the Hungaroring – but this time rain could enter the mix.

While the start to the weekend is set to be dry, rain is a threat for Saturday's final practice and qualifying sessions.

A hot start, before rain arrives

According to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, Friday will be hot throughout, with the air temperature expected to peak at around 30 degrees Celcius.

From there, Saturday looks set to be impacted by rain, with persistent thundery showers forecast amid temperatures in the low- to mid-20s.

Dry conditions are set to return for race day, but in temperatures much cooler than those experienced during FP1 and FP2 on Friday.
