Previously, I had reported that the weather forecast for this weekend’s Spanish GP and it seemed as though it might have been a wet race.  As Murray Walker used to say, “Anything happens in Grand Prix racing and it usually does”, and so, the weather forecast has been revised.  Probability of precipitation has dropped to only 10% for race day with cool temperatures and light but steady winds with a south-western influence.  Teams are already in Spain setting up and preparing for the weekend.  So there seems that there will be no “Rain In Spain” as we thought. 

Tom Briggs (McLaren Tyre Master and general nice guy (Twitter: @1derpony)) mentioned to me that were already in Spain on Monday and that they had already setup more than half the garage yesterday.  Everyone is well on their way to being ready for the start of this next round of races. 

There is a feel of excitement and anxiousness in the air as the next few races may be critical in shaping the outcome of the rest of the season.  Good results now in such a tight title race could mean the difference down the road.  So what do the Spanish weather gods have in store for our beloved Formula One this weekend then?  Below is the revised weather forecast for this weekend’s GP;
