Mexico City weather update: What's in store for the Mexican GP?

After pleasant conditions so far on Friday and Saturday, could a chance of rain break the pattern for Sunday's Mexican Grand Prix?

It looks like drivers will be racing in pleasant conditions for the Mexican Grand Prix, but a small chance of rain remains. There has been dry running so far at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, with temperatures on Friday close to tropical. While the heat has cooled slightly for the remainder of the weekend, there still looks to be a summery day in store for fans during Sunday's race.

Could a shower hit on race day in Mexico?

As it stands, there is a small possibility of a shower at the start of Sunday's 71-lap race. According to our friends at WeerOnline.nl , the chances of rain during the Mexican Grand Prix are around 30 per cent. While the likelihood is that conditions will remain dry, teams might want to keep an eye on the forecast. It is also possible that rainfall could hit just before the race, which is due to start at 14:00 local time, but the chances of further showers increases after the event. With only very moderate wind, the expected temperatures of 25 degrees Celsius could feel quite warm, so fans at the track would be advised to take caution in the sunshine.
