While the 2023 United States Grand Prix is set to be as hot as the Qatar Grand Prix last time out, one crucial factor is set to protect drivers from such harsh conditions.

A combination of high air temperature, high humidity, flat-out racing due to tyre stints and sustained high g-forces meant drivers took a physical battering in Lusail, but the Austin race is set to be different.

Air temperature is set to be similar to Qatar at around the 33 or 34 degree mark, but crucially humidity is set to be at the 40-50% mark, according to our friends at WeerOnline.

Showers are forming in the Gulf of Mexcio which will bring more humidity, but these are not expected to arrive until well after the race and not possibly until Monday.

Charles Leclerc is set to start on pole position with Lando Norris and Lewis Hamilton behind, with World Champion Max Verstappen down in sixth after having a time deleted for track limits in qualifying.
