Miami Grand Prix 2022

Latest Florida weather: What's in store for the Miami GP?

What weather conditions might the drivers face when the lights go out to start the inaugural Miami Grand Prix?

The Miami Grand Prix looks set to be extremely hot and humid, as the chances of heavy rain showers diminish compared to earlier this week.

With the race taking place in tropical conditions in Miami, the extreme temperatures are tempered by heavy rainfall during the day.

However, the rain that has fallen already this weekend has occurred at times when it has had no effect on the track action.

Sunday is set to be hot and sunny, with some periods of cloud cover. A few showers may occur early in the morning, but the race is now quite likely to take place in fully dry conditions.

Lights go out to start the Grand Prix at 15:30 local time (20:30 BST).

The latest weather forecast, as supplied by our friends at WeerOnline.nl, shows temperatures will reach some 33 degrees Celsius during Sunday, meaning an even higher track temperature.

This will have a huge effect on the life of the tyres used, with high degradation to be expected as a result of the punishing asphalt temperatures.

Spectators at the Miami circuit are encouraged to consider the high temperatures and extreme sun intensity, taking on plenty of fluids, using a strong sun block and remaining in the shade where possible.

While the chance of rain has diminished, the tropical conditions mean that a localised rainburst could hit the track with very little warning.

Even if the expectation of this happening is low for now, the possibility can't be ruled out, and teams will have to be aware of a potentially race-ruining shower.
