After the Netherlands and much of Europe were subjected to sweltering temperatures earlier in the summer, conditions have thankfully cooled slightly, and this weekend's Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort should be run in very pleasant late summer weather.
According to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, Friday's practice sessions will be run in bright sunshine, with temperatures expected to hit 26 degrees Celsius.
Saturday will see slightly cooler conditions, but the Mercury is still tipped to rise to 24 degrees. With scattered showers around the country, there is a 50 per cent chance of rain at Zandvoort during the day's action.
A dry race in store
Just like last year's race, Sunday's 72-lap Dutch Grand Prix should be run in dry conditions, but there remains a lingering threat of rain due to the cloud cover around the Zandvoort circuit.
Overall, the three days of the Grand Prix weekend look set to be run in very pleasant conditions, in temperatures well above normal for this time of year, which usually average around 20 degrees.
