Silverstone is the venue for the tenth round of the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship. While the UK is known for having some wet and miserable Grand Prix weekends, the latest weather forecast for this weekend suggests a warm and muggy race is in store.
The latest weather forecast, thanks to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, suggests temperatures of around 25 degrees celsius throughout the weekend, with spectators urged to take direct and hot sunshine into account in their preparations.
A cap and sunscreen is a must for fans and crew this weekend, as at sun strength 7-8 unprotected skin can burn within half an hour.
Friday Practice and Qualifying
The weather forecast suggests dry and hot conditions during Friday's free practice session, as well as qualifying on Friday afternoon.
Expect temperatures of around 25 degrees celsius.
Saturday practice and Sprint Qualifying
The weather forecast for Saturday is set for more of the same, although with possibly warmer conditions for Saturday's Sprint Qualifying session in the afternoon. Expect 25 degrees celsius.
This 30 minute sprint race will be used to determine the official starting grid for Sunday's Grand Prix.
Sunday - Grand Prix
Potentially the hottest day of the weekend, with no rain forecast. Temperatures in the mid to high 20s celsius, with the biggest concern for the teams being maintaining their tyres with high track temperatures.
Spectators in the stands at Silverstone are urged to prepare properly for the direct sunlight, especially for grandstands with no cover from the sun.
