Sochi weather: What's in store for the Russian GP?

The latest weather forecast ahead of the 2021 F1 Russian Grand Prix predicts a dry race although a small chance of showers remains.

Sunday's Russian Grand Prix is set to be a dry affair, as opposed to the heavy rain that fell before qualifying, in which Lando Norris took pole position for McLaren.

Norris and the 19 other Formula 1 drivers will be faced with similar conditions to Friday with a maximum air temperature of 17 degrees Celsius and a moderate wind.

The chances of rain are slim at around 10 percent from 15:00 local time, when the race begins, although the track may still be 'green' due to the adverse weather on Saturday.

Large cumulus clouds could create a local shower at the Sochi Autodrom, but it's the continuation of the cool conditions which will grab the attention of the teams.
