After Friday and Saturday's running was held in warm and dry temperatures, the F1 circus can expect similar conditions for Sunday's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

With thanks to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, here's the current weather forecast for the 2023 F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

As is typically the case in Jeddah, the race will be run in warm conditions, with temperatures expected to be around 26 degrees Celsius by the time the lights go out at 20:00 local time, before cooling slightly to 25 by the time the chequered flag is waved.

Wind speeds are expected to be low, but with the wind direction shifting slightly from a north-westerly to a northerly direction, there is a possibility that small quantities of sand and dust may be blown in the direction of the circuit.

The asphalt will still be hot at the start of the race, but will gradually cool down throughout the event, which could have an effect on tyre strategy.

Fans in Jeddah will need to be aware of the sun's intensity during the day, with a UV index of 12 meaning that unprotected skin could burn very quickly, especially with very little cloud cover expected on Sunday.

Although champagne has not been exclusively used on the podium, with F1 recently moving back to using sparkling wine, it forms a key part of post-race celebrations.

But what are the origins of this world-famous tradition? And with so many litres of this luxury drink sprayed throughout the season, how much money does such a champagne shower actually cost?
