No link needed. There is less air at altitude, air is insulating, thus more solar radiation is shining on the track than at sea level. Average track temperature on clear days and 28 degree weather @ sea level is around 40c, so we can calculate more or less. Ambient temperatures are a little lower, but solar radiation is higher, so ~42c track temperature. Of course this is a guess based on calculations.

Wasn't asking for all that, just a link to the current and predicted weather conditions.

Wednesday Thunderstorms - 77/57
Thursdays Thunderstorms - 76/58

Friday Rain - 65/53
Saturday Partly Cloudy - 71/51
Sunday Partly Cloudy - 75/55

Monday PM Showers - 74/57

So after the rain eases off on Friday it wont pick up again until monday afternoon so we should be good Saturday and Sunday but all the Pre-Race might be affected by rain... at leas the ambient track temperatures wont be in the high heat conditions last years event had.

But then the next weekend has scattered Thunderstroms... So the 2nd Austrian GP might be way different to the first.


=D> This is exciting! :mrgreen:

2020 Austrian Grand Prix weather forecast (Weather Info Spielberg):

From the Formula 1 teams’ point of view, different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds. It is always well worth checking the weather before any grand prix as it can often throw a curve ball into the mix, although this time Spielberg will most likely be a straightforward weekend, at least for the race day. Conditions appear excellent ahead of the 2020 Formula 1 Austrian Grand Prix weekend. The temperature for race day is expected to be around 23-24 degrees, while according to the latest forecast, there is no chance of rain for Saturday and Sunday afternoon. The race day will therefore be warm and will receive abundant sunshine. However, there is a high probability of rain on Friday, meaning that the free practice sessions may be affected by the weather conditions, which would make things a lot more difficult for qualifying and the race, given the limited track time that the teams have had this year.

Maybe they will postpone fp1 so the teams can get more dry running... I don't think the crowd will mind.

I won't be watching qualifying - UK pubs are allowed to open on Saturday and I shall be popping down to my local for a jar or two... =P~

Much better than trawling the web looking for a stream of qualifying. :lol:

The way 2020 has gone so far, I'm not counting on this race being held until the red lights go out Sunday.

Not great news for Ferrari

Or it's just all smoke and mirrors ...
With rain on Friday, all knowledge is gonna come from just FP3. And without nearly any running so far, that means little data and therefore an unpredictable race.
I'm all up for chaos ..

Love the sound of that it will just add to how much more amazing a double header will be with thunder storms going into the next race and this race being dry. It just might be worth the wait.... I'm so excited!

I dunno, pubs have been open for a month and infection rates are not going up. I'm not in a risk group, I don't know anyone or interact with anyone in a risk group, I keep my cleanliness up and I'm don't touch things I don't need to. It doesn't seem any more mad than staying cooped up until a safe vaccine comes along.

I guess so, but I dont see the difference in going to the pub, not sitting near anyone other than my own household, and paying three times the price for drinks, and drinking from glasses that someone else cleaned, at a table that someone else cleaned. With drinking always needing a toilet is another risk. What I'm saying is, whats better about the pub, sitting seperate, with all the added risk, than home/garden with no added risk, and a damn site cheaper.

You'd be 100% correct with this if everyone did the same. At least in the US, there's a good number of people refusing to wear masks, another good number that wear masks without covering their nose and god know how many people are actually observing the common sense behaviors you note above.

For the time being, more precautions F1 takes at the GPs the better.
