    Practice weather was interesting.. Humidity stayed high after the rain so the track never got under 73% offpath while onpath was 0% at the end of session... It did go close to monsoon but stayed driveable, 84% at max, AFAIK +90% is red flag conditions... Usually when there are puddles in track, it's full wets and when onpath drops under 60% it's intermediates but because the offpath stayed so wet it was very tricky ;)

    Yes, fabulous weather in the Practice session. I was on the track when the clouds "moved in". It got darker and darker and I am convinced there was lightning flashing around. And then I aqua-planned off the track at turn 13.... :) Into the pits....

    There is lightning in Race07 so you weren't imagining it.. There is actually a lightning fix somewhere, it can cause stuttering in lo-end systems ;)
