Suzuka weather

Post by darwin dali »

The forecast right now calls for scattered showers on Saturday (40% chance of rain) and mostly sunny on Sunday (10% chance for rain). Temps will be in the mid 70's. Hm, interesting...

Well, a bit more rain than today and as we've seen during Q, the Bridgestones just suck...

It's called progress on the part of Michelin and stagnation at Bridgestone.

Yeah, but it won't show as everybody will be on the same tires, so no comparison.

Sounds like Friday practice is literally a wash. Quali could be difficult (green track, some straggling showers in the afternoon). Race should be dry and fine.
