Rain has hit the Imola race track ahead of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, marking the second wet day of the weekend.

Following on from the rain-hit qualifying session held on Friday evening, the Grand Prix looks set to be held in fully wet conditions after a deluge hit the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari on Sunday.

With the drivers heading out on track for the parade, umbrellas and rain-resistant clothing were the order of the day as McLaren's Lando Norris admitted: "It's maybe a bit too wet to drive at the minute, but it's going to be an exciting race."

What's the outlook for the race?

The latest weather forecast suggests a 90 per cent chance of rain at the start of the Grand Prix, at 15:00 local time, fading to 60 per cent an hour into the race.

Temperature-wise, conditions have cooled to the point where a maximum of 15 degrees is predicted.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen will start the race from first position, with title rival Charles Leclerc alongside on the front row for Ferrari.
