Season 6 Race 3 Imola - Weather

Discussion in 'Presto GP' started by Daniel Hansson, Feb 23, 2011.

  1. Hi Presto racers :)

    Here you got the first forecast for the event at Imola:

    This part of Italy has a moderade chance of rain this time of year: 25 % risk of rain affecting a day. Showers and longer rains are about equally common. The intensity is mostly light to medium.

    The second one will come on tuesday the first of March, at 19:00 UTC (current UK time).

    -------------------------

    The virtual schedule to be able to link the forecast to the sessions:

    Day 1:
    11:00 - Practice
    14:00 - Qualifying

    Day 2:
    11:30 - Warmup
    14:00 - Race


    The second forecast:

    Day 1: A fine day with a tiny risk for showers. Showers are usually around half an hour to an hour, with about medium intensity.

    Day 2: Same as day 1.
     
  2. Thanks a lot Daniel :D

    I'll make sure I upload the correct file this time (last time time I think I used the weather file from Valencia St.)

    but we must rely on the weather or a uploaded file?:D:D


    Thanks Daniel
     
  4. No problems Nico. :) Just curios, but if the weather gets mixed up in the future by either of us, should the race continue and the result count? Might be good to clarify that, if it should happen again.
     
  5. The way I see it, it is not really a problem as long as I am 100% Presto GP material, which I am. Iow I would not dream of speculating in this. This again means that if a mistake is done there is no way of knowing until after the race. How are we to know if a clear sky when rain is predicted means there is a mistake? It could just be the unpredictabillity of the weather :) (that your 10% chance in your spread sheet kicked in).

    So looking at the bright side, the 5% chance that I make a mistake contributes positivly to the unpredictabillity of the weather.
     
  6. Yeah, good point :) . That's what I think is best too. Even though it probably wont happen again.
     
  7. The pressure is on I feel :)
     
  8. Thank you Daniel and Nico...

    Very true, so no problem at all :)
     
  10. Thx Daniel and Nico, whatever happend i consider it as part of the game, I was on rain setup at nurberg, i run longer stint hoping for rain to come, my tires were gone by lap 20 but i stayed out for 3 more laps as I was prophesying that rain shall fall any moment now ...but nothing happened.. Blue sky... so even if the weather file did not work the mental idea of rain coming did work..And by staying out for 3 more laps made me lose more time to the guys chasing me. But if rain did come then I might have jumped all the guys that have already pitted. :)

    Cheers

    thx Daniel!

    A tiny risk is at least more risk than no risk :)

    ...plus the risk of accidenticaly using a different weather file including the data for a monsun (sorry Nico :) had to be)

    I'm trying to think back to a wet Imola race in F1, nope don't seem to recall one

    Edit: 1991?
     
  16. I think the "coolest rain" we can have is the totally unexpected one... like we could get tonight, with or without help from me :D

    Thank you for the weather Daniel
