Do you have updates about the weather at Silverstone ?
From what I read FP3 may be affected by rain storm, it may clear before quali but still be a little wet.
Sunday is less chance of rain, just 28% before race starts.

On the subject of Hamilton's signing Merc contract which has been dragging on since February *YAWN* it's clear that there is a problem and the way its being discussed through the media instead of a table with wolfy is wholly amusing.

I've been following F1 for real since the beginning of the 80s.

TBH my car/motorsports heart still lies with (pre) Group B rallying/RX, Group C, DTM/BTCC etc.

My so called heroes: Vatanen, Toivonen(RIP), Loeb and the lot.

And this guy.




I'm still a big big Mansell fan!

Cheers
Robin

I bit of rain. Max would say: " I'm from Holland eh, we know how to drive in the rain."

According to the Weerplaza app: rain showers prior to the qualies.

Not Charlie's ideal mix, the F23 is tricky to set up for this 'will it or won't it rain' conditions and looks set to continue up to quali.

This might be an interesting quali after all....

Overhere it's 30 degrees (86F?) now, blue sky and 'way too hot for a Dutchman'

Max is out on inters with 10 minutes to go trying to set a time, I think they need full wets now and the wind has picked up on this very flat track susceptible to wind.
