Weather forecasts for this weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix are looking very mixed, with meteorologists expecting a mix of temperature and weather conditions for the fourth round of the 2010 World Championship season.
The previous rounds in Australia and Malaysia have both been rain-affected at various stages of their respective events, and it looks like we’ll be in for a repeat this time around.
Temperatures are expected to fluctuate between highs of 8 and 19°C (46-62°F) according to local forecasts, although good visibility is predicted throughout.
Last year’s Chinese Grand Prix was hit with very wet weather, and Sebastian Vettel took his first win for Red Bull Racing, having taken his maiden race win in similar conditions at the previous year’s Italian Grand Prix for Toro Rosso.
The previous rain-affected Chinese Grand Prix was in 2006, where Michael Schumacher took his last victory for Ferrari in a brilliant tactical drive to vanquish Renault’s Fernando Alonso and keep his title ambitions on track before he (temporarily) would bow out of the sport.
