    According to latest weather forecasts, we will watch a rainy qualifiyng session on Saturday. Friday practices are dry, while evenings maybe rainy.

    About Sunday, there are some different predictions. According to Ferrari it will be a dry race. While some local forecasts says that there will be raining on Sunday morning, also some little showers afternoon. Another forecast from the international sources says there is a %50 chance of rain on Sunday.

    The latest rainy race at Hungaroring was in 2006. When Button won his first Grand Prix victory while Alonso crashed because of a pitstop mistake. Hungaroring holds a dull race most of the time, but when it rains, it surprises all.

    Would be nice for Massa if he could win this race after the tragedy of last year. Don't expect much from the McLarens this weekend as they seem to struggle a bit with the downforce, that you obviously need on this track.

    Great pictures btw!

    The weather is incalculable in Hungary here recently.
    Anything is prophesied, the truth 50-50 %.
    Go Alonso :cool:, but if there will be rain, better what Vettel does if he is watching it.

    FP2 Should remain dry for the most part but theres a area of thunderstorms come from the SW which will affect the area later tonight making the track green again for FP3.
