    We now move directly towards Japan and Suzuka in one weeks time. And here we have the first forecast for that event:

    In october on average one third of the days are affected by rain. But when it comes, it comes hard. Moderate to hard intensity. Mostly as showers, but also as longer lasting rain.

    The second forecast will come on the tuesday before the race, at 18.00 UTC (19 o'clock UK summer time, and 20 o'clock central european summer time (CEST)).

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

    The virtual schedule so you can 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 bit unsteady weather, with risk for showers during the day. Lenght about 15-30 minutes and hard, or maybe medium, intensity.

    Day 2: A clear day with only a tiny risk for showers.

    Hehe,
    do you mean my exploding tyres?


    Qualifying position is not so important for me, especially now that our entire field drives for the finishing line as opposed to just down to turn 1. :)

    Thank you Daniel.

    Thanks Daniel, sounds exciting :) Looks like there is a good chance that we'll see some raindrops sometime during the "weekend" :)

    How many laps for the race? 49 ?
    I made some tests on the wet and tire wear is a challenge. A wet race should be very interesting!

    Just realised something. Sweden will play the final game in the european championship qualifiers tomorrow, and I'm gonna go away to see it with some friends, so I wont be home to post the forecast at 20 cest. But I will post it just before I leave. That's probably between 19:30 to 19:45.

    Statistically, Sweden will lose. But Netherlands has not won the match yet. First, they must play:)

    Pff, statistics.. :) Anything can happen. Like Sweden winning against Holland, or Reik not winning a race. It's not likely, but it can happen.

    Rapid counter-attacks and good defensive play was the medicine. I enjoyed it to the full.

    Thanks for the forecast Daniel.

    Yes, I think it means that :) If we get a wet qualify chances are the starting order could become quite spicey. Having said that, I think I would put my money on you :)
