What’s the weather forecast for the Turkish Grand Prix?


The 2021 Turkish Grand Prix will see Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen continue their breathtaking championship battle at Istanbul Park, this much-loved circuit hosting Round 16 of the 2021 championship. But will it be wet or dry this weekend?

After rain nixed FP3 in Russia and struck at the end of Sunday’s race to force the field onto intermediate tyres, any drivers hoping for a completely dry weekend in Turkey might be disappointed.

FORM GUIDE: Who will triumph in Turkey as F1 heads back to Istanbul Park?

That’s because it looks like there’s a small chance of rain every day in Turkey. Of course, that chance is low – around 40% – and at this early stage it’s unclear as to whether any sessions will be affected.
