Strong winds to challenge F1 teams at US GP

Temperatures are expected to reach as high as 32 degrees centigrade, with no rain predicted.

The United States Grand Prix will once again see a scorching weekend for fans in Austin, as sunny weather with temperatures up to 32 degree centigrade is predicted. Located in the central part of the state of Texas, the Circuit of the Americas has a warm climate all year round. Rain can fall in most months of the year, but this will not be the case for the next few days. Areas with clouds and precipitation remain at a great distance and that means sunny and very warm conditions during the Grand Prix.

Strong winds expected on Saturday and Sunday

There will be strong winds that the teams will have to grapple with on the Saturday, with gusts expecting to reach between 40 and 50kph. This will follow on Sunday with gusts expecting to reach up to 60kph throughout the day. Strong winds can cause teams to make compromises on setup, as the cars can be sensitive to the gusts depending on where they appear.

Sun to shine for most of the weekend

The sun will shine from Friday to Saturday with temperatures rising considerably, while the afternoon temperatures will reach around 32 degrees centigrade. Sunday will also be hot with maximums between 31 and 32 degrees, but then more clouds will slowly appear from the west. Rain is not expected until after the event, with it staying dry all weekend for the race.
