After Saturday's action at Istanbul Park took place in cold, grey and wet conditions, Sunday looks set to be clearer and closer resembling what was seen during practice on Friday.

However, the circuit is wet after overnight rain and there is still a chance of some rain showers affecting the race.

The latest weather forecast for the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix, with thanks to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, shows a rain-free start to Sunday in Istanbul. But there will be significant cloud cover and moderate winds coming in from the north east.

The forecast suggests a 15 percent chance of rain during the Grand Prix itself. The track surface remains soaked in water from the overnight rain, though, with drivers set to start the race on the Intermediate tyre.

If the sun peeks through the cloud cover, temperatures will be around 20 degrees Celsius, dipping to around 18 when the cloud cover prevails.
